cazadorgallego where in cairo and durham are you hunting? I hunt both of those areas real hard and i have also noticed the numbers are way down this year. Saw alot of deer before the season but once the season started didnt really see that many deer at all. We did pretty good this year considering with a four 8s and two 6's in durham but besides that havent seen much. I really think the coyotes are doing alot of damage to the heard in that area. you cant go out and not hear or see coyotes on a daily basis. This year we are going to hunt coyotes real hard during the winter and hopefully we will take a few down. Good luck to all who will be going out for the last few weeks of the season.
