My father is headed out for some pre-archery scouting today. The farmer said there are deer EVERYWHERE.... Yes

I only have 3 days to hunt in November, so I hope it's a good opening weekend.... cool

I did some scouting yesterday and saw 9 deer total,
I'm pretty confident I could take 3 this year but I'm also not greedy...
1 would be ok , 2 would fill the freezer, even though 3 are legal I don't see me going for a 3rd.
Good Luck to all of you this 2008/2009 season. Thumbs up

ever year i kill deer in CT MA. I can count on one hand the number of deer i have see in VT. I have see a lot of wild pigs but no deer. when you look at the deer harvest number this hold up my view. the number of deer killed by cars and deer hunter are going down. this tells me that there are a lot less deer in this state.
if you are having better luck them me well good luck.

Don't no where your hunting in Vt, to say you haven't seen deer. There are plenty of deer, you don't see big bucks often, but we have deer. As I am writing this, there are more than 4 deer in the pasture at the apple trees. Still a little to dark out to see just what they are. The big buck, is a rare sight, and I have learned my lesson well, you say nothing. In a small town, word spreads like wild fire, and before you know it, you are flooded with hunters all trying to be the "one". Which ends up being a dangerous situation, or leads to an illegal practice. As I have stated previously, I have great respect for bow hunters, I don't see any BS with them, as I do rifle and youth day. Unlike Ma, and Ct., we have alot of forest land, where they can yard up, and stay, instead of coming to a town's edge, Seek and you shall find, they're there. Vermont deer are just smarter. (joke)

I see at least one deer here almost every day. Yesterday I saw six. Did you say wild pigs?!!! I've also lived here 12 years and I've never even heard of a wild pig in Vermont!

When I hear people say they don't see deer in Vermont, I would place big bets that the comment is most likely coming from tourists or guys that think they are hunters.
Many non resident hunters come to Vermont thinking they will bag a big Woods Buck BUT the problem is, they just dont know how to hunt a Big woods Bucks.
A Seasoned Vermont hunter doesn't get on stand and hope Deer come running in begging to be harvested, The following text defines the word hunt.

HUNT:
1. to chase or search for (game or other wild animals) for the purpose of catching or killing.
2. to pursue with force, hostility, etc., in order to capture (often fol. by down): They hunted him down and hanged him.
3. to search for; seek; endeavor to obtain or find (often fol. by up or out): to hunt up the most promising candidates for the position.
4. to search (a place) thoroughly.
5. to scour (an area) in pursuit of game.
6. to use or direct (a horse, hound, etc.) in chasing game.
7. an act or practice of hunting game or other wild animals.
8. a search; a seeking or endeavor to find.
9. a pursuit.
10. a group of persons associated for the purpose of hunting; an association of hunters.

I've never seen Hunt defined as, sit in a treestand or blind and wait!

If a person "Hunts" Vermont they will see deer. Yes Thumbs up
