That's a pretty good sit, I hope I see that many in Mich. Glad the smoking habit is getting the kick!

Thanks HM I usually see that many in NY & later in the NH season but never this early & when it is this warm the property I was hunting was logged over the winter most of it clear cut so I wasn't expecting much. It did not seem to bother them weeds & underbrush are already 4' tall & they are still using a lot of the same trails. I did not make it out last night but will be going today

Well was another good sit again deer moving early saw a total of 10 deer. None of them came into range. I guess the rough New England winter didn't hurt the herd in my area to bad!

It's good you're seeing deer, A lot of the locals around here are saying they're not seeing enough deer to even talk about.
Vermont hunting is in rough shape, between the winter severity and poor management programs statewide,
I don't know how the state is going to get back on track. This year the State issued 9,650 doe permits for the ML'er season
and closed 11 of the 21 WMU's (wildlife management units), Last year they issued 17,050 and all WMU's were open,
That's a huge reduction in Permits and a huge area to close off from doe harvests. should be an indication to the hunters that we're in deep trouble here.

hear ya Bruce I remember when I started hunting everyone talked about how much better the hunting was in VT compared to NH but I think over the last 15 years or so the tides have turned to me it looks as our herd gets better every year. My area I still think they need to thin the doe population but I don't think the biologists feel the same but they are the pros & I have faith in their decisions

The UP of Michigan is going through lean times at least in the mid-western area around Marquette. There are no doe tags. My buddy is seeing a few does and little ones around his home which is about 10 miles from where we hunt. Use to be I'd see 6-10 per day and if you drove back roads up to 100.

I remember years ago it was nothing to go into the woods and spot 20 to 30 deer every day I spent in the woods but times have changed now it's the hardest hunting I'll ever do, most Vermont hunters today are spotting them by chance, by either jumping them out of beds or bumping into them as they enter or exit the woods.
if the moon and stars come together in perfect alignment, the deer will be there (lol) otherwise a hunter has to be on top of his skills with scouting, scent control, slow movements/motions and visual awareness but I continue to hunt and learn more and more year after year, all I can, about the most elusive and majestic creature on earth... the Whitetail Deer
