So, How did all of my MA hunting counterparts make out this season? Any luck since the last posts last month?

Well aside from Massseawolves record and law breaking year of 3 bucks in Ma I haven't heard much else.

Most everyone I know got deer in N.H. and M.E. just north of you. There weren't a ton of deer around but it seems everyone got quality opportunities and scored.

I HAD A BAD YEAR SEEN ONE BIG BUCK OUT OF BOW RANGE,, BUT THATS WHAT HUNTINGS ALL ABOUT NOBODY SAID ITS EASY , BUT I HAVE A CHANCE TO SCORE ON THE NANTUCKET HUNT IN FEB. THEY SAY 40 TO 60 DEER PER SQ.MILE YOU CAN TAKE UP TO 5 DOE AND 1 BUCK . IWAS TALKING TOA GUY ON THE ISLAND AND HE SEEN SOME DEER STILL WITH THEIR ANTLERS, BUT ITS A HARD ISLAND TO HUNT DO TO THE THICK SCRUB OAKS , ILL KEPT YOU UPDATED ON HOW I DO WHEN I COME BACK THE10TH.

Had a pretty good season, nice 7 pt. during bow, filled a doe tag during shotgun, and shot a 6 pt. during shotgun also, that meat should hold us out until spring.............along with the two antelope I got in MT, maybe until summer.

I took a 4 pointer w/ the shotgun opening day after giving a doe a haircut. I didn't get anything w/ the bow or the muzzleloader.
I took a doe in IL w/ the bow too.

You either have a big family or you only eat the tenderloin.

Not too big a family...me, the wife, and two little ones. Once the deer go down we don't buy any cow from the store, I utilize everything I can from the deer, cut them all up myself. Grind the scraps into burger, etc., we love venison and any other meat from the land.

I also give an amount about equal to one deer away to the two landowners I hunt on and friends that request meat, so nothing goes to waste.
