    I missed my one and only shot this year today on a small doe. I'm deerless with no venison.... anyone else get any deer this year? I have some time yet...

    Same here, no deer yet. hubby been going out every day , but he don't stay out too long, I think the cold has really been bothering him more lately. he usually goes to Wva. every year, but this year was different. Down there he always gets deer, plus other hunters give them away. I'm hoping he has some luck in the next few days. I wanted to try and can some deer meat this year. Tried it for the first time recently and I really did like it canned. Seems like we see them all summer, in the evenings when I'm sitting out with the chickens, but come hunting season... forget it. They sure are smart. Good luck to ya.
