Just thought I'd ask how everyone did this year. I ended up with a decent doe on Saturday and Friday I dumped an eight, wanna be nine pointer. :) Both with the Muzzleloader this year as there was no time to practice up with the hundguns.

Thanks for the Complement Eye Shot. He was not the biggest one I had seen and the one that I had been watching earlier in the week was a monster but alas, he stayed over on a neighbors propery and I couldn't wish him over to where I was able to get a shot on grond that I had permission to be on. Anyone else out there in Ohio that did well?

dropped a nice doe with the .454 at about 60 yards, and missed a 4 point and another doe. Under the weather (sick) so won't hunt Sat or Sun, maybe will do some muzzle loading season hunting.

No good here for me. I saw deer but either too far away or didn't present a shot that was decent. Looking forward to ML maybe that will be better luck for me. Deer numbers seem down around this part of the state though, one guy who I know is no story teller said his neighbor harvested a corn field and found 30 dead deer...he thought from that bug that was around during the dry, hot summer-fall period. Anyone else hear of anything like that?

:-\ finally ended my season taking a button buck this evening. I am calling this the "jinx season" because of missed shots, botched opportunities, and just plain rotten luck. After missing this easy 40 yd shot with my xbow at a large doe wound up taking the button buck which was standing in the same spot, go figure. Tried Acorn Rage today and all I can say is the 4 deer I saw tonite all were zeroed in on the acorn rage, I will use it again next year.

Well, with the bad back this year and the doc saying no bow hunting I only got to go out one day. That was opening day of gun season and didn't get to hunt then because there was a poacher on the farm I hunt and I stayed out while the game warden and the sheriff hunted for them. Almost got one with the truck up the street from the house. good thing I didn't traded the truck off!
