Keep shooting the doe. No deer around

Hunted allgheny countey with 10 guys and only saw 3 deer. No kills. My friends hunted in Venango county and a group of 10 say 5 deer first day all day. Second day they saw no deer. Went to Ohio pile area. A group of 5 saw no deer all day. Keep shooting the does. That's why there is no deer around. Game commission only guess about deer kills. The kills reports are not even close. How many deer did you see first day the were?

Re: Keep shooting the doe. No deer around

Saw 47 day one, 36 day 2, 24 so far today. I'll shoot every doe I legally can. I did my homework, I'm where the deer are. Life is good.

I think I'm an alright guy, I think I'm alright

Re: Keep shooting the doe. No deer around

I was on vacation the week prior to spend time with my son and we went spotting every night, doing the same loop around the area I hunt. The low deer count was 31. The high was 110. Same fields, different nights, about a 5 mile loop.

I saw 1 deer opening day, and I was hunting the heart of that loop. Just because you aren't seeing them, doesn't mean they aren't there.

Re: Keep shooting the doe. No deer around

I saw 4 deer opening day....a spike at 7:15am and 3 individual doe while walking mid-day.

I missed two of those doe(story of my whole season so far). I usually see 30-40 opening day. So, definitely no deer, all dead, none at all around. Nevermind I AVERAGED 16 deer per day in archery in the same place. Nevermind the THOUSANDS of pics. Nevermind the deer trails pounded down to mud all over the place. Nevermind the lack of regeneration. Yep, the Game Commission killed all the deer....last Sunday cause I didn't see much on Monday!

You really under estimated the ramifications of the boondoggle you have just perpetrated!

maybe you should try a new hobby, seems to be plenty of deer if you know where to look.

Re: Keep shooting the doe. No deer around

Saw 4 on at 330 Monday on the insanely busy game lands in 5B. 1 buck and 3 does. Missed the opportunity on the does because I was busy trying to put another tine on the buck. Saw one doe yesterday in the rain but couldn't seal the deal because of a deflection. Only gave the girl a hair cut. The days of 50+ deer on public land are over but they are still there. I talk to people who also hunt this same game lands in the same area and they say hunting is terrible and there are no deer. So different expectations and experience play a big part in seeing deer.
