Don't feel bad. I haven't had the time to go and when I did have time I came up empty handed. What tags do you have available?

HM- thats great for you happy to hear that someone is having great success in a few counties not to far from hear some of my friends are having a year like you! good luck on closing out your season.

TG- i can appreciate that most seasons i hunt 3-4 days a week this season with work being so busy i get one day which is Saturday since we cant hunt on Sunday in VA. In VA we get 3 Turkey, 1 Bear, 3 either sex deer, and 3 antlerless deer only. all that being said i still have a lot of hunting to do! i hope that you can get some time to get in the woods soon with success!

GF- i did see the picture of your NY buck congrats on that very nice kill. i know the feeling iwas in San Francisco CA for work for a week i come back to only find two pictures on my camera i think the rut has moved them for the second time this year. hopefully things will pick up for you and the season will be a success for us all!
