Dont worry Pats! At least your "fish in a barrell" deer aint full of steroids!

Doug I never posted any such thing, what I have posted on numerous occasions is that the most deer I have ever seen in one day in any state was 13 (in York Co. ) and that I have always considered seeing 1-4 deer during a morning or eve. as a very good hunt.
I have also stated on numerous occasions that how and where I hunt I never expect to see alot of deer but if I do see a deer it is probably something pretty interesting and also probably pass by my stand within bow range.

But to answer your question anyway, I have no clue how many deer a guy should see?? Pike

I cant see how comparing the archery hunt during the rut with the hunting of pressured rifle season deer as having any merit. Try hunting UNPRESSURED adult bucks, that don't stand up during daylight. You know...the kind that you only ever see at night on the game camera. In PRESSURED gun season, those bucks get killed. UNPRESSURED and they live and live and live some more. The whiner crowd would have probably never shot a buck in their life had it not been for PRESSURE. Why do you think that the biggest bucks of all time were taken during pressured gun season? Even with the rut, top archery bucks are inferior to the top gun bucks.
And if you think those bucks in the photo are "ROID" bucks, well then, you never saw a truly huge buck. Those are nice bucks indeed, but hardly "ROID" caliber.

From QDMA website:
In bucks treated with GonaCon, suppressed testosterone production results in a lack of rutting behavior and the associated neck swelling and muscular growth. Treated bucks resemble does with
antlers.

" These body and antler characteristics donít
match our experiences or expectations for the noble white-tailed buck.
Thanks to the Pennsylvania game commission, THIS is what Pa bucks will soon be looking like:

You could be right Sproul. Those bucks are probably at least 3+ years old. They most likely had some way of avoiding hunters afterthey were AR legal. That often, but not always means private land. On the other hand, there are big bucks like that taken every year on public ground around where we hunt in 2F. Finding em where we hunt means getting in where it's deep, steep or very ugly. At this point with my heart issues, I dont go deep oe steep any more but there are plenty of ugly places close to the roads.

The one thing that stands out among the folks I know who routinely bag the gaggers is that they put lots of time in and are always thinking outside the box. I know you put in lots of time and I know you arent afraid to go way back so its gotta be that the area you now hunt is still too accessable to the orange horde......... I think I'm gonna send you a PM
