Me, wife and two sons, none have taken a deer, though my younger son missed one during gun season. With NH and its roughly 12-15% success rate, there lots of us.

I've seen a bunch but haven't drawn the bow back yet.

I haven't either. I was really sick all through archery season and only got out two times. It's hard to get a shot at a deer when you can't stop coughing. Rifle season I could have shot a doe or two but chose not to. My 13 yr old son got a button buck so I was happy.

ORIGINAL: DeerWhisperer

I too have not taken a deer yet. Well that's not entirely true. Last day of the 1st muzzleloader season my cousin and i were sitting in the same ground blind. 2 does came up and me being on the right side i shot at the deer on the right thinking he would take the 1 on the left.
1 deer falls, The deer on the right falls. I'm thinking i got mine. We walk to the deer and it has 2 bullet holes in it. I asked my cousin which 1 he was shooting at? he says the 1 on the right. Oh well, so technically, i harvested half a deer.
Sorry that you haven't killed a whole deer, DW, but that is a great story!

I've just killed a little button buck this year. The does come out at dark and I let two fawns go who came out in the morning. This is the only year I haven't seen a buck with a sizeable rack.

I've been skunked this year for the first time in many years. I let alot of young deer and some does walk. I guess I skunked myself. I decided I wasn't going to kill a doe this year. A buddy of mine scored outWest on an Elk so I have plenty of venison. I had many oppoutunities in both archery and rifle, just no mature bucks. So I passed.

You're not alone.

I shot a 105 lb doe opening day for meat, freezer was empty ,
But since then I have been very dissapointed this year. Usually by this time there have been at least 4 racked bucks killed on ourplace and nobody has yet to even see a sizeable buck so far. Maybe January will be more forgiving when the bucks start rutting. One can only hope.
Just be patient my friend, your time along with mine and everyone else in this forum is coming
