I was out all day too. I still hunted until lunch time, then took a break and sat on some food for the evening. Saw nothing. It was snowing too hard to find fresh tracks even. I was hoping to catch some bedded down. But no luck.


I'll be out after lunch time tomorrow.

I didn't see anything on the last day.

I have that special draw hunt at mosquito lake on the 26th to look forward to now. Congrats on tagging out!

i only saw a few & yet odnr claims they killed over 13000 deer during that 4 day season. sounds like b/s to me . i believe it's a number to sell next years hunting license! i hunted 3 different counties & may of heard 5 shots total & i mean local & distance.

I saw four. Nothing that gave me a shot opportunity. My partner saw three, but they stayed in the thick stuff.


Talking to guys after the hunt it really just depended where you were.


I talked to several who saw none. A few who saw a couple like myself.
One guy saw a group of 13 and a group of 9.
One guy had seen 27 already when I talked to him at lunch time.
One guy said he saw 70
and one guy said he saw at least a hundred.


There was definitely allot of deer sign out there. It was pretty thick and pretty flooded where I was hunting. Hunted near an eagles nest for a while and enjoyed watching them.


For the day they only had 5 deer checked in when I left in the evening. They expected a few more to be brought in that had been shot right at dark.
Not a very good day for them. The hunt the week prior they had 27 I believe.


I had a good time though.
