I'm too tired from driving but since the rifle season is over and the final tally is in....

Someone figure out how many deer per/hour that comes out to be.

11 days with about 11 hours of shooting time each day would be 121 hours.

Figuring 193,155 deer taken during firearms season...and assuming shooting hours from 6:30am to 5:30pm (a little long, but easier figurin') each day for a total of 121 shooting hours during the 11 day season...

1596 deer were taken each and every hour of shooting light during rifle season...

:D Speaking of stats, does anyone else find it funny that NO NONE NADA 2009 fall turkey hunter in Missouri checked in a bearded hen?! :thinking:

Sounds to me like some folks mis-IDed some bearded hens as juvenile gobblers. :D

My buddy shot his first yesterday... was sighting in his muzzleloader when they came out of the woods. Grabbed his bow and snuck behind them and got a hen.. he says "I thought these things were hard to kill" :hysterical:

:thinking: So.....here's where my thought process goes with this then..... Do you suppose....there was a minute, or maybe even a 5 minute time period during the season where there was a deer not being killed? Bet there was! :D :stirpot:

On opening morning every year I like to count seconds in my head and see how far I get between gun shots....usually it's fairly late in the morning before I get to a full minute very many times.
