Well I saw the first deer of the year. I could hear running behind me and I didn't turn figuring they would come right by me. Here come 7 doe and stop 35 yards in front of me. I put the cross hairs on one and squeeze and nothing. Pull the hammer back again and squeeze and nothing. I chamber another round and they move another 30 yards away. I pull the trigger and nothing again. Taking the old 30-30 to the gunsmith tomorrow. I stayed in the stand another 30 minutes and saw a buck running but it never stopped and I'm glad I couldn't tell if it was legal or get a shot because the gun likely wouldn't go boom. I'll try again tomorrow with the 308 or 243.

Was able to get out for the last 45 minutes today. Ran over right after work. Saw nothing.

Could it be your ammo was bad?

Did you shoot your prior to the season to verify the POI?
