I wish I could...
We get one buck, if we're lucky.
If we're EXCEEDINGLY lucky, we might get a chance to take one doe in the limited parts of the state that allow such.


I often long for the bag limits I had in Florida -
4 deer per day, no more than 2 of each sex.
I wasn't at all upset when they dropped it to 2 deer per day, no more than 1 of each sex.
I figured I could take something like 186 deer during the season, if I tried hard enough.

Keg,

From the pic. looks like he's a young one too. What do ya think?

One buck per year here in Ohio as well. Since I usually have a certain buck scoped out to hunt for the season prior to opening of our season's, many years I don't shoot a buck. When I do, tenderloins are cut out and the rest ground into burger for everyone to enjoy, including the dog.

Nothing but the head,hide,guts and small bones go to waste. Recently lost my shepherd that ate more deer and fresh veggies out of the garden then most people.
