Good luck to you Dustin!!! I

Good luck to you Dustin!!!

I am unable to get out the last 2 days, so I will be eating tag soup too, just another flavor (A-22).

I did get out the other day and have a chance at a couple that came in just after sunset, but they went the wrong way, and I couldn't rule out if they were spikes or not.

There's always next year.  And, only a couple months till turkey season!!!

Hey Andrew, good to see you

Hey Andrew, good to see you here.  Good luck with the last hunt.  At least you are not totally eating tag soup for the year though.  I have been surviving on it for awhile. lol

Mmmmm, Good!

I am also eating tag soup this year. I am supplementing it with some deer track stew, so that makes it a little better. Big smile

Actually, I am fortunate to have a hunting buddy who hunts in 3 states and always has extra venison to give away. This year he gave me a whole doe and one hind quarter from a buck from another state.

I could be out there with stick and string for the late archery season - I think two or three more days, but I haven't done the cold weather archery thing for quite a few years.

My buddy? He's still trying for one more. Applause

It happens

It happens to the best of us guys I once went three years straight without filling a single tag while hunting in THREE states!

That's why I now tag the very first legal deer I see - every time!

If you want more details on those PAINFUL long empty years - see my story on this site called "Learning Patience"
