I'm 28 and I have 38 deer killed, haven't shot much the last few years as I have been very selective. I have 14 with a bow, 18 with a blackpowder, and 6 with modern firearms.

I am afraid the number would be looked on as being "careless with the truth.." My first deer season was in 1956. I had shot some deer before that but there was no deer season then and we shot them with the .22 when we wanted meat. One stretch when the population was high, I had eleven tags. Thats the most I have ever taken in a season. I have had sixteen tags the last two years combined and have two left to harvest. One year I only shot one. Thats the least. Although there is no way I can remember them all, I would estimate 5-6 per year for those 49 years.

I have been head over heelshooked on hunting since Grandpa got me my first Daisey when I was six. We had a big family and ate all we hunted.

I think I am gonna have to move to a state like Alabama to boost my total. I cant hunt againuntil a week in January when I can try to fill my last doe tag withthe muzzleloader. In the meanwhile The good Doctor is in Alabama killing a deer a day.

I am 38, and I have only killed 13 deer. If I had not gone to college, and spent most of the years in my 20's working and trying to find a wife, I would have a much larger number. I married at 29 years old, and now I have settled down to a life of work, and hunting when I can.

9 with 30-30
2 with .270
2 with muzzleloader
