Yes once again it is so sad that the season is over. I am already looking forward to deer season 2013.
Sounds like you had a great season, with your daughter taking those deer. That alone is very enjoyable and makes one feel proud. We need all the young hunters that we can get.
Myself I must say it has been the best one in a few years. I have been due for good buck for about 4 years now. I took a pretty decent 10 point before Thanksgiving. On other different days I took 2 does and I shot a button head
for a doe before Christmas. With all the deer I saw this year I could have easily tagged out with the muzzleloader, but I was horn hunting till about Thanksgiving. I let 2 different 6 points, a four point and several cow horn spikes pass on by, hoping they grow up to be big boys.
The other hunters on the lease took a 6, 7 and 8 point. They told me that I was supposed to take a 9 point to keep things in order. Two of them also took about 6 does.
