I see deer about 80% of the time. I see bucks about half of that.

Yeah you could say I am.I live in their wintering grounds,and I have a second home in their early fall and summer grounds.My Dad was born in a small community that happens to be in the middle of a major deer migration route so I know that area very very well cause I hunted in this community since I was a kid.And I have cousins that live in another community that holds alot of deer during the winter.

YES! if it's not a a half dozen or so, I get pissed and wonder why not. I got real spoiled by seeing decent 8 pointers about 75% of the time and a few monsters every year. 2 years ago was the first year of seeing a monster in 3. I was a little put off last year.

FYI, this year I already saw a monster 12 point. Unfortunately he's in a difficult place to hunt him. He's located at NIST inside their fence.

We can see deer every day in the fall of the year even when we aren't hunting them , We have a lot of fruit trees scattered out over the ranch and the deer feed on them even in the middle of the day .

No. Taking deer where there are few has been a personal pleasure of mine. Does get too you when you don't see any.

Once before I hunted a very popular public ground where the deer are few. I stopped looking for deer and started watching all the other hunters who didn't know I was there. Pay big money for comedy like that. No deer that wasn't completely out of it's mind would've been there. It was the last day of ML season and I just wanted to end it in the woods.

Are you using bino's? You almost always will when you do. Deer are very good at slipping through undetected.
