My Deer Hunting Season Was A Success, Was Yours?

Considering I only saw 5 deer all season from the stand I also have to say luck had some input to be sure.

Weather was a huge factor all season where I hunt,,,how about your location?

We had little to no snow.

Temperatures seldom dropped below freezing and only at night.




In the end I got lucky from a tree stand location I seldom used.

It pushed my boundaries closer to their sanctuary area to right on the edge

It was a last chance opportunity as time was running out.

I moved a tree stand at 11am and was in the tree by 11;25

Luckily this 5 1 /2 year old buck was on the prowl for  hot doe at 11:46.

My deer hunting season ended 11:47
