Well for the last 15 years I have managed to keep my average the same ........... a BIG FAT ZERO ,) I have never shot a deer, I hunt my _ _ _ off every year, every day of the season. But I did managed to shoot a bear in 2002.
The legle limit with public tags in washington for deer is one which since i have been hunting at the age of 12 i have always gotten one. Up until this year,but I am only 14 so i have killed two deer in my life but this
this weekend (thursday, friday, saterday, and sunday) is late buck and i am going to ateempt to harvest a buck.
I just shot my second buck(my first being 2 years ago) monday. He was 170 lb 8pt with a 16'' spread. ill post pics as soon as i get them back. He's going on my wall next to my other 8 pt . Oh and there is no limit on deer in SC. Just limits to like 1 per day i believe. but my buck is the first deer ive seen all season and are buck season started August 15th!
I just started hunting again 3yrs ago after a work induced 15yr hiatus...the past 2 yrs I was skunked, but this year I got 2. It helps now that I can hunt the ML season back home now as well. I imagine that 2 will be as many as I'll ever take - that's plenty for us (just me and the missus) and to share with family.
In NJ doe hunting is unlimited. You can take two at a time and check them in, get your two more tags and head back out again. I know people that kill more than 100 deer a year but I try to take 4. 3 for my family and 1 for the hunters for the hungry program. I let ALOT of does pass and try to take 2 bucks and 2 does every year(I hunt 2 properties and take one of each on both properties). So far I have 1 buck on the season and the gun opener is in a week and a half.
i hunt mostly up in KS, there we can take 1 buck for the year, and in the Co. i hunt in, up to 5 doe,s,,,, here in OK we can take 3 bucks and 4 doe,s i usualy take only 1 buck here in OK and all the doe,s i can legaly shoot, same goes for the doe,s up in KS. i dont need that many does but i believe its good herd management, last nite here in OK i saw only 3 does, and passed on 7 bucks ( racked bucks ), i,m not counting button,s ,, thats a pretty good buck/doe ratio
We are only allowed to harvest one deer per year (buck unless you get drawn for an anterless tag). I have been successful 17 of the 19 years I have hunted deer in Nova Scotia. Both years I missed out was because I was being fussy about the size of the buck. I usually see a decent buck pre-season and try to hunt him but I will settle for less most years if I am not being fussy. Roast deer tag is not all it is cracked up to be.
our camp took 11 deer out this year with 1 tag left (mine!) I haven't seen any this year. 1 weekend left !
To hunt and fish : don't feel bad for not getting any deer yet and trying so hard
It took me 5 years of hunting every single weekend some times 3&4 day weekends to finally get my bear I think if I added up all the reciepts from the first week-end it would be close to a million dollars
Over the years I have seen several elk and deer hides left in the woods by hunters and I have to wonder why they do this? I fully understand and agree about getting the hide off the animal as soon as possible to cool the meat, but why not pack out the hide with you and use it? As far as I know there are no state laws that require you to take the hide home, but to me why waste such a beautiful part of the animal? Some might think they have no use for the hide or it costs too much to tan....
