I got my usual immature 8 point, 15 inch whitetail. What I call an "old man's buck" which means it's just big enough not to be embarrassed and just small enough so I don't get a heart attack dragging it back to my truck. Also got a 12 inch antelope buck. I am on a roster for an elk damage control hunt, so I still have a chance for an antlerless elk if they start hitting the ranchers crops.
In the four dAYS I was able to go this year I saw 13 deer four of witch were does and nine of them were bucks most of them were small but the half rack was a decent size deer and then along came an 11 pointer "BOOM" GOT'EM WITH ONE SHOT.
Had a rough year. Located 5 shooters but only was able to cash one in. He was the smallest of the bunch green scored 144 8pt. Missed a whopper of a 10 pt my fault. Came in so dang fast used the wrong yardage and shot 3" over his back. My season is open till the 31st but the others I located have started dropping already so may go out this weekend and shoot a doe or two. Affraid to shoot a good one grab the rack and fall off. Just would not make my day.:no:
I did my part here in pa to harvest a doe. For the first time, I hunted the first whole week of november and saw a pretty nice buck. Either an 8 or 10, he wouldn't come close enough for a count. He was stuck on a doe. I have done some after season scouting with the trail camera, and found that some really nice bucks made it. I am gonna soon start hunting for sheds.
I had a great season with six deer harvested. Saw lot's of deer had some great deer camps with great a great bunch of folks. Had three does and three bucks, two eights and spike I got the first day of bow deason that I thought was a doe. Already making plans for next year.
