BTDT as long as ya had fun and enjoyed yourself all that counts . As you know I put my stuff away after rifle season and son filled his doe tag.... Yepper always next year . Not crazy about hard water fishing ... so things will be kinda slow probably until around April for me... but going to be a Great Grandpa here in March and going to a Nascar race in April ... so probably not going to be that slow I guess πŸ˜œπŸ‘

My hunting is done.  Saw 8 deer Thursday and 1 was  a buck.   Too far away for a shot at any of them.   Stupid deer.
Didn't hunt in the rain Friday or the cold Saturday.

The only thing better than 1 day of fishing is 2 days of fishing.

Enjoyed all the stories, pics and updates in this thread throughout the season.  
 
My son and I never made it out in the late season in 2D.  Between basketball games/practice and arctic blasts, we never got a day where he was real enthused about getting out.  
 
A friend gave me the meat from a doe he got with the muzzleloader last week, so between that and what's left of my son's doe he shot in October, we're set for quite awhile.

Went out the last evening out my back door. Went about 60 yards down my side yard next to the garden area. Had 3 come walking and picking at 5:00 pm a big doe and two fawn does. They all where less than 20 yards,the little one stayed quite a while. I put the red dot on the big one, it never flipped the safety. You never know how many more you'll get on LIMITED TIME. I got enough deer this year. I've still been checking corn fields at dusk but no shooter bucks showed. One of my friends wants me to hunt his suburbia yard behind his house but I've had enough this year. On a side note we pile these maple leaves from our back yard tree,it's a peculiar looking leaf but it is a maple The deer love them. I pile them up about 4-5 ' tall in a 10-12' circle and they eat all by winters end. Would that be considered baiting.lol Never thought they would enjoy them but they go right to them every evening. Only trouble is the same 3 are the only ones coming this year.

In the fall, I see deer munching on maple leaves on the forest floor all the time, just walking along.  They nip the browse and pick up some acorns and munch on a nice maple leaf.  Variety is the spice of life, I suppose.
 
Pretty informative article I found (long, but worth the read):

Since where talking about what deer eat. A few years ago a giant white oak split and was covered with acorns. I was squirrel hunting in that woods two times in a week after that tree fell. Both times deer came and browsed off that half fallen tree. I decided to set up a ladder stand. Three days later I hunted that stand, 20 minutes into the hunt I arrowed a dandy 8pts.

Did an evening sit tonight. Saw 6 does but all where along the edges in the residential area I was hunting. The bird feeders are a big draw right now. The deer don't want to come into the timber. Going to do a morning hunt tomorrow.

Can't say as I don't envy ya, but it's just too darned far for me to drive and sit in a tree, even if there is legal buck still in the area.  Sooo I'll go and swing my feet from my seat, over a hole through the ice.
 
Good luck dpms, keep the reports coming.

I think I got the elusive PA. White Tailed Deer figured out, they don't go nocturnal, they just fly into the night.

Wags I hope that is the case. Wouldn't want to think that deer is one from my past and has returned, looking for me.😱

Talking about hunting, I got to thinking about other licenses and permits and in checking past mail, I see a letter from the County Sheriff and one from PennDot.    
 
Well this morning I head to the County Seat where I renewed my CDL and my CCW.   Thought for sure I was gonna see the County Sheriff comin through the door at the DMV when I walked inside to renew my CDL and asked the attendant where I could renew my CCW?   Stupid spellcheck!!!!
 
There should be a law against license and permits!!!!

Talk about ghost deer......this one was around a lot of years till it vanished...Mercer County
 

Friend that snapped this shot said this deer was around for at least 7 years or more...those all are her's following ....basically a neighborhood pet along all the houses.

No sense in "waiting to the last minute" to get things wound up.  As the old saying goes "the early bird gets the worm" except I'm thinking these two guys are "better late then never".   I know it's not  toooooooo early to start growing the next state record buck but I'll place my money, the antlers are still hanging on from last year.    I guess I must have not looked behind the right trees, stupid elusive Pennsylvania White Tailed Deer.

Can't quite say I'd bet my bottom dollar on it but I'm pretty sure, this is a different deer.  You be the judge.

Last year I had a real good 8-point on camera on 4/21.

The poster formally known as Duncsdad

Everything I say can be fully substantiated by my own opinion.
