    I hunt for meat, couldn't care less about horns!

    and got skunked this year. Saw lots of does, no legal deer though. Bucks only here. Saw lots of elk (legal bulls too) during deer, none during elk.

    came close to getting a bear a couple times but could not connect... next year...

    I got one doe down so far. Still have one more doe tag to go. As far as the buck tag....tag soup. Didn't take any pictures of the doe.

    Not too good so far. All I got was a spare tire and a muffler. The local Taxidermist wont do a Euro mount on either of them.

    Pretty slow here. I got lucky on opening day and shot 3 does. My boys hunted hard for two weeks and didn't see anything but fawns. Most of the big-buck hunters I know got skunked, course the rain and sleet for almost a week didn't help much.

    Wannta see pictures, just wait, I leave tomorrow morning for Tennessee for a 8-10 day hunting trip. My daughter lives in my old homeplace. Her son is 18 and loves to take grandaddy hunting just to show him up. He has already baged 6 last week. In our part of
    TN you are allowed 3 deer a day, either sex. So it should be a good hunt.
    These pictures may be of doe but at least I am amost sure I can post a few.

    Here in Iowa the deer are getting pretty scarce. I have been out at least three times a week all bow season and only seen four deer.

    D3 drought levels in my hunting area, very poor success ratios due to that.
    One pond that held a monster Moose I was watching last year was completely dried up this year. The bear take is down too because of low berry growth in this area. Last year we saw 4 bears, and scat everywhere. This year not a sign.
    Our group got 1 Muley Buck, and that's ALL we saw in 6 days! For 5 guys!
    Last year we saw over 2 dozen Deer and several Elk.
    Many camps gave up and pulled out after 3-4 days, it was so bad.
    That's the bitch of Colorado hunting, your stuck in your draw area, no matter what.
