Default 2011 = Tag Soup

Deerless in 2011. First time since I've been hunting seriously. Dont quite know what to think. With an empty freezer looks like 2012 will be vegetarian by default.

I'm right there with you ! I'm still deer less myself so far, health and work both have limited my time in the woods this year, so I'm also looking for good tag soup recipes. Lol.
Here in ky I do have till jan 14th I think to get a late deer with bow, so after Christmas I'm going hard at it. Although its been my worse season ever it's also been my best only because I did get my son on his first deer ever, so if I end up deer less I guess I can always simer on that and smile anyways

Our tags in NY are made of thin plastic. They are nearly impossible to rip. They may need to simmer for a long time, or possibly placed in a crock pot overnight :)

I still have all my 2011 tags too. No deer for me again this year but this is what i expected after the winter we had last year.
There's always hopes of putting some venison in the freezer but some years it just doesn't happen.
We had a severe winter last year, I knew the winter severity was going to be felt by every hunter here in the northeast region.
Deer already struggle to make it through a normal winter, when we get end of season snow falls it adds to their struggle, it really puts a hurting on their winter survival rate.
That along with this years harvest rates is going to impact next years hunts as well but you can bet i'll be in the woods again next year enjoying every day I get to spend in the woods.
I never measure hunting success by harvests, If I did, I would have had to give up on hunting many years ago.

Going to give it one more shot tonight. I should be able to get out of work and spend the last hour of deer season in the woods. Watching the woods fill up with darkness is the only way I know how to close out deer season.

I feel for you guys. Usually it is me, not because I dont see deer but because I cant draw a tag to go hunting.
