    Default 2008 gone! How was your 2008 deer season

    Mine sucked. I harvested a good eight pointer but over all the season wasnt one of my best.

    I attribute mine to hunting pressure and lack of food source.

    Mine wasn't so good. I let the biggest deer of the year walk by first hour I was in the woods. My boy's told me I would be sorry but I knew there was bigger there. I was waiting on an 11 point I had trail cam pictures of. So ended with only a doe.

    Had a pretty good year. #s were about the same as 07 but overall antler size was less. No squawking from me.

    I had a good year hunting here in Wisconsin, I put in a lot of time and seen a lot of deer, I came close to shooting the buck that I had on camera that I was after all fall, but he still lives another year everything here is free roaming swamp and some farm land with a lot of Oak & Pine trees so it takes a lot of patience.
    5 deer with bow all 5 does
    5 deer with the gun 1 Buck 4 does

    2 went to families that needed food
    2 were for my son in college who he and his roommates think it the best stuff ever

    Heres a picture of the buck

    No complaints really. I always wish for more time in, but I got more than last year, and got some venison in the freezer. Could have been worse. Hey, only 9 months to go.

    Good season for me
    3 does with my bow, one late season
    1 10 pointer with my smokepole(biggest buck to date)

    I did however miss the two biggest bucks I have ever had a chance at, one around 170" (have trail cam pics), and the other was about 150" non-typical on public ground. Lesson I learned this year.... aim a little low!!

    Good season over all; filled my buck tag in 2 states - with one of them being my best archery buck to date. However I did blow it on 2 does.

    Took some youth afield, had a great time! Most importantly got them off the X-Box/Play-Station for a day.

    Had a community lunchoen at the church.

    Delivered 20 meals to local elderly/disabled/shut-in people.

    Donated everything else (except for the straps an 1 the one Quarter pictured below) to the local Emergency Shelter for battered women & children


    Forgot the digital camera at the house but took some pictures after we left the check-in station and got all cleaned up:

    Default Best yet!

    Had a great season hunting with friends and family. Spent a lot of time in the woods with the bow and was able to harvest my first ever deer with a compound bow. Also took a doe from the same stand location two weeks later with the rifle.

    Yeah as a matter of fact I should have passed that buck, I had 2 giants offer me chips shots a couple weeks later That only happens when you no longer have a tag....

    I had a blessed season!

    Another fantasic year for me. Spent time with family and friends pursuing whitetails. Filled my freezer shooting a bunch. Enjoyed all the sights,sounds, and smells the good lord gives me when I hunt. Didn't wound anything (at least not too badly).

    Hey Daniel Boone
    I feel sorry for ya. Most people I know (including myself) wound consider shooting a good 8 point and seeing the deer you see (from your pics) a GREAT year. You seem to have lost touch with the big wonderful picture.
