This. I've been able to cut way back the last several years so it's fun again.

I used to keep a log book of exactly what deer I have killed over the years, but I quit keeping track when I was in college. I'm somewhere in the 80-100 for whitetail deer. 20 or so have been with a bow.

Probably in the 400 range. We used to take 60-70 doe every year in a lease I used to be on. It always fell to me and one other guy.

Probably 40-50 with a bow.

For the last 17 years it's been more hunting just for family food and recreation, average around 10 per year whole family.

I have killed a grand total of 16 bucks to date, not counting a nubbin' error here and there. Got my first in 1987.

Heck, Solo-cam Aggie, I'd like to read it!

I'm right at about 180 or so. MLD will make you want to stop shooting deer after a while.... But I'm not there yet, just don't shoot that many anymore. A couple for the freezer every year and I'm good now....

I can count them all on 1 hand, and I've hunted for over 20 years.

cheap leases and public land, I was lucky to see 1 or 2 deer per year, and I missed a couple of them. That was pretty discouraging.

I guess I'm not that great of a hunter, glad I got a wal-mart down the street or I'd starve

I have shot my share of whitetail. No idea how many and most were not actually hunting- just riding on top of a truck shooting and stacking-
My kid started working for a ranch a few years ago and at 14 he is done- I have no idea how many he has killed over the last 3-4 years but would put it in the 250-300 range. It was fun at first but he said not it is a lot of work.

Oh jeez thinking about it probably north of 300. I hunted a lot of ranches under MLD. Some years it was plenty a chore just to hit out allotment.

I don't miss those days.
