Default Vote for best hunter...

I nominate myself as the best "hunter"
I have walked/stalked 18 deer on public land, including 4 bucks, 10 hogs and 3 bobcats this season alone.

I have put in way too many hours and miles since last October when I started to hunt, that I am afraid to know the exact number.

I claim "hunter", because in all that time and effort I have never actually harvested anything :-)

Unfortunately I am a "hunter" and not a "harvester", but I do love chasing in in them woods!!

I vote myself in at 3rd place. I have stalked 11 deer including 2 bucks, got a shot at one with a clear miss. 16 hogs, I stuck 1 w/ an arrow and shot 1 with a 5.56 2 times, trailed both of them off the public land and onto private land so no recovery. Seen and could have shot more squirrels and rabbits this year than would fit in the freezer. Thank goodness for the new late season. I even went this morning. It was 15 degrees and felt like 7 degrees. Found 2 new fresh ground scapes and 3 fresh rubs in saplings today

That's about right. Ina lol fairness to myself...Only 1 buck was a shooter and I jumped him, so bad shot I didn't want to take. The majority have been doe outside of legal season for them on public land.

Very sorry to hear this. I remember the time I got lost in the national forest. Saw lots of animals like you. But I was in semi-panic mode looking for a road or landmark. Glad you're ok.

It's to early for this kind of thread. It's still cold outside, and last I checked the season was still open. Just getting started as far as I'm concerned. (even though my freezer's full ) Can't eat the Horn's though, and the buck I'm after this year has been a tricky critter.

And then there's the ducks, pigs, predator hunting, and trapping. If only work didn't get in the way.
