Ya its been a tough season. I think with acorns everywhere the deer just don't have to move far. The most success Ive had recently is hunting high up on ridges, about 2/3 the way up. Close to the bedding areas but not too close. I have been seeing lots of does but no bucks yet. One of these times there will be a buck with them.

Any luck yet?
I was told that only about 200 deer shot in Carrol County this season. Seems awfully low..... (I know you're in other region. Hope it's better there.) Very few tracks in the snow.... Weird since they are not yardin' up yet. Still breeding over here too, so the lack of sign is a very bad sign. I'm still stickin' to my belief that the hard 2 winters and Coyote issue has taken it's toll. Can't see how it's going to be much better next year either.

Not a ton of deer around my stands. I've been fortunate to take deer, but haven't seen 1/2 of what I usually see. I'm assuming you're not hunting J1?
