This was my first season hunting and didn't get into it until almost mid Nov. Went on a 1 day hunt saw 2 does and missed 1 that I shot on, went the day after Thanksgiving and shot a 8 point 165 buck for my first deer, went out twice more and didn't see a thing outside of kicking up some does that last day out on the way to the stand. It was a great first year and I'm looking for clubs in my area so that i'll be ready next season.

mrsracing, you did so well as a non-club member, why opt to join a club now?

I hunted a pay by the day club at $175 per day for a buck day or $120 for a doe day. With a doe day I shot the 8 point and was fined $175 = $295 for that 1 day. For two days of hunting I ended up with $315 out of pocket. I hope to find a club for somewhere around $1000 give or take a few hundred for a year long membership.

wow thats a lot of money i hunt state land for free.when i belonged to a club the dues were 250 a year.

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

OHHhhh I didn't know you were on hunting Club land.
Well I'm glad you got your deer but sorry it cost you a bundle to get it.
Have you tried looking for open land where it's free to hunt?
I'm sure there must be some available open land for you to hunt and
be able to find the trophy of a lifetime..
