Someone did this for archery season and thought it might be interesting for the rifle season to see what days were good this year.

I didn't kill a buck yet this year, but missed two on Wednesday November 30th. It was the best of days and the worse of days. One of the misses will haunt me the rest of my life.

Nice poll. Interesting to see how many guys took their buck after the first day. Never give up, because your luck could change in a second.

I remember a report published a few years ago, not sure of the precise numbers but it is close, about 70% of bucks are harvested the 1st day and about 50% of those are taken within the 1st 2 hours. The new e-reporting doesn't require time of kill, can't remember if the old report card did.

Will have to see how it goes, but I am surprised that more buck weren't killed the first day. Maybe the rain in alot of the state was the reason.
