My crappy start to the season

Bow season started last thursday here. 9/17...but i had to work that day... So I went saturday 9/19. morning and evening...Passed up a doe saturday evening because she had a yearling with her. And since that day..I havent seen crap!!..plenty of squirrels. but no deer....its turning out to be a frustrating season already..countless hours and months preparing for season...and its not paying off...

Remember they call it hunting not getting. Enjoy the sit time and just being there! Success will come to those who wait.

I would have taken the doe and then the yearling. that would be a great start to the season. but then again, my hunting conditions very from most other hunters. hang in there though, its still early.

Cant wait to hit the stand tommorow. I found a little trail last week where deer had been using recently, and put a stand there, and put out my game camera.. WOW!!!... Deer galore..i left my camera there a week.....At least 50 pictures of does, bucks, turkeys...I found the hot spot, and cant wait to hit the stand in the morning..

Good luck with your new spot. I went out this morning crossbow in Kentucky. Saw 4-5 on my way in, pitch black (saw their eyes in my light) and saw nothing more all morning. But, it sure was good to be in the woods again. Saw a huge hawk that landed in a tree 30' from me. I must have been camo'd good as he paid me no attention. Nothing like bein' in the woods.
