So a little past the half way point, how do you rate the '09 deer season?


I've had an enjoyable season. Shared some memorable time in the woods with my children that enjoy hunting. :2thumbsup:

Other than the weather it was awesome. Saw more deer this season than I have in years. Wish the mrs could have got one, but she had fun anyways. Even got to take my son out for an hour one evening. Next season I am hoping he can go sit in the stand with me:cheers:

Caught this buck out chasing a doe in an open field. To quote the infamous New Mexico female soccer player, "I got caught up in the moment." :wave:

My season has been pretty good. Worked tons of overtime in Sept and October and didn't really get to get out there after em enough to figure out what was going on until the last week of October. Killed two with my bow, then only spent 1 full day rifle hunting.

Now I'm ready to get back to bowhunting and I will hunt with a ML this year for the first time.

I know what you mean 20 ft. Had a great opening gun morning hunt with family (3 kids and my brother) hunting the farm with me. I sat with one of my daughters and saw a really nice buck that didn't quite give her a chance to shoot. In fact no one in the group fired a shot, but we all had multiple deer sightings, several close chances on bucks that weren't or couldn't readily be identified as legal, and does that were given the day off by those that saw them. :eek::

I have had a great season.
Got my first deer with a bow and a young buck and a doe with the rifle.
I like a freezer full of deer meat. :claphands:

Had a great year. Had my Dad back in the stand again. He'll be 81 in March. He passed on some does and never got a chance on a legal buck. Started bow hunting again. Saw lots of deer opening weekend and never fired a shot. No one in our group fired a shot opening weekend, but we had a blast.. Went back and killed a doe. Made a 600+ yard stalk on a mature buck and shot him in his bed. He had no teeth. Ma boy killed a couple does so it was a good year. Still gonna sling a few arrows.:cheers:

It has been an enjoyable season so far. I have my usual high hopes for cold weather and good hunting for the late part of the season.

:cheers::cheers:

Been a good season so far.

Hunted hard for three days in Western Nebraska which resulted in one bow killed doe. Saw more than 60 deer with a few decent bucks.

Hunted 7 days straight with my bow before the gun opener in northern MO and saw 4 huge bucks that did not present a shot. Must have sen 50 or more in those 7 days.

Took out my 7 year old twins multiple times throughout the season and my 14 year old daughter once and I bow hunted with my 16 year old son once or twice.

Been a good season for deer sightings but just haven't sealed the deal on one that I liked. My restraint has surprised me this year as I have held off on many small to medium sized bucks.

All in all a good season so far. I have learned a few things as I do every year ad that i am thankful for. I know I have said it in the past but I now truly believe that I have turned the corner and for me it is now more about the hunt than the kill. Oh I want to get a nice deer but in past years I would probably have a little anxiety that I had not taken out a good buck or a medium buck at least.
