I have been hunting for the past 41 days and I have not even seen a buck. I have seen allot of does, but nothing with horns on. Is this the year I go with out a buck? I don't know but I will be in the stand every day until close of the season. I know I'm in big buck country and I'm doing every thing right sitting on the food at night and the south facing slopes in the mornings close as I can to the bedding areas. So if you are having a bad year I feel for ya. Good luck and be safe.
