    Your 2011 Deer Season Review

    So let's hear about your 2011 bow season in 3-5 sentences. Did you accomplish your goals? How did it go for you in general?

    I'll go first. I saw a fair amount of deer although I hunted the least I have hunted in 10 years (2 year old and newborn on 11/16/11). I shot two does and had a lot of chances at 100-115" bucks. I saw only 4 mature bucks worth shooting but none ever got closer than 40 yards. It was a disappointing season in general and since I didn't kill a mature buck for the wall I did not accomplish all of my goals.
    "...the deepest, most permanent features of all great moments outside are the names, faces, descriptions, and emotions. The antlers on the wall...well, they're just bones affixed to boards. But what they represent, however, is flesh and blood - fathers and sons, friends spending time with friends and the the seasons of life when the people we love were still with us. These old antlers on the wall...well, take a seat, my friend, and I'll tell you all about them." -Rev. Zeke Pipher

    I shot my first velvet buck on the second day of the season. I could only hunt early morning, late evening, because of work. And did not leave the state. I think that bugs me the worst. I did see two really good bucks for NH, and they gave me no shot. Thats bow hunting .But all and all a pretty good yr. Yext yr I.m coming to Ohio one way or another!!
    what goes around, comes around. (I sure do hope so)!!

    This pretty much sums up my year. http://www.wiredoutdoors.com/our_show/w11.html
    The buck Splitter 13 that I patterned all summer and I blew it. Hopefully it will make me a better bowhunter.

    Had a decent year. Took a doe early on, passed on a couple smaller bucks, got outfoxed by one shooter and passed on another mature buck early, was holdin out for a better rack. Didn't see many shooters this year?
