The season's over

Recommended Posts

I spent a lot of time in the blind this year. Probably about 80 hours over the 3 weekends.

Saw a few does and fawns late afternoon on the opener. After that I saw exactly Zero deer. Not even any tracks in the fresh snow. They just disappeared!

Late in the afternoon on the last day a big doe and her fawn came through.

I had to make a quick, long, extreme quartering away shot on a moving target but I took the shot. She ran about 30 yards and dropped.

No horns to brag about and a very boring year. But it's still a lot of fun to go hunting. And...  I got some venison for the freezer.

Congratulations on the doe Jerry.  Been a strange season here.  Not seeing anywhere near the numbers of deer we normally would see, have seen only one fawn for 3 groups of 2-3 does, afraid between predation and liberal limits our numbers are continuing to head in the wrong direction.  No deer in the freezer yet here, wife killed a mature buck with muzzleloader, but unfortunately I did not find him until 4 days later.  We do have a lot of season left yet though with our gun season having just opened last weekend.

Not sure where in Mn you  hunt Jerry, have had reports of a group near Ely 4 guys not see a deer in a weeks hunt. then somebody stole the generator too boot.

Im not complaining, shot 2 does in early bow season, salvaged a car kill, and got a buck in gun season. Prob. hanmg it up for this year unless some huge shooter comes in late bow season...have my doubts thats gonna happen.

Congrats on the doe! Meat in the freezer is a good thing, and you got to enjoy the great outdoors.

I have a buddy that hunts up in northern Minnesota, and the wolves are out of control the last few years from what he has been telling me. No doubt that puts a big dent in the whitetail population.

Congrats on the doe.  Bummer to spend that many hours hunting and see so few deer.  Heard the wolves have hammered them up there.  Glad I don't have that to worry about...yet.
