I like different forms of hunting and do not mind Man drives for deer. But some of the photos, I wonder how many of those rifles were loaded when they were on the road. I also think dragging a deer out to the street and loading it into a pickup truck surrounded by blaze orange just gets us all a bad name. If a game warden was there, I am willing to bet there were a lot of tickets to be handed out.

im 14 hunt in Northeastern PA ive been hunting 3 years of rifle and this year i went out achery 5-6 times and didn't get anything. Opening day of archery i saw a 3 pointer but it was to far. On opening day of rifle i saw a does at about 8 O'Clock ( I didn't have a doe tag) then at 9:15 i heard rustling in a bunch of brush 70 yards away across the creek and out came a 13 pointer and with 1 shot got it down.My family has been hunting here for 23 years and that was the biggest ever. There has been a lack of deer here but this deer is probaly an example of how the antler restrictions make deer bigger. All those trips out coming back empty handed paid off.I learned hard-work pays off

Yes, its been a tough year for me in Illinois buck wise, i have killed 4 does, 2 with my bow and 2 with my shotgun, but its all about the memories and these guys seem to be having a blast, thats what counts, i could go out and not see any deer and be just fine, just being in the great outdoors makes me happy!

I have hunted longer and harder this year than any in my 20 yrs of deer hunting...to no avail. Have 2 weeks left and havent seen a deer in 3 weeks...I hit one with my truck leaving my hunting grounds on T-day...and even it got up and ran away!!!! just makes me want to go that much more.

Any animal, that god allows us to harvest is a trophy. It shows us that we do have dominion over these creatures as god intended us to do so. But yes, you cannot boil them horns, and if you try its gonna take a long time.

Good job gentlemen! Even a tough season is one to enjoy. I would like to be in the field chasing deer this season, but this small disturbance in Afghanistan has killed my hunting season. Take care and good hunting.

That's what you have to do, work harder. This was a tough year with warm temps, no snow etc. We just pushed every chunk of bush, slough grass etc. and hunted early and late and it paid off. Some years it seems too easy and others you work but I dont need to kill something to have a great season. Just getting outside and seeing old friends makes it worthwhile and renews hopes for next year.
