Our bow season in Wisconsin started a couple of weeks ago. I have not bagged one yet but I will really start hitting it hard in the next few weeks. Have any of you guys shot a deer yet this year?

Haven't even started yet, but I saw eight does feeding in a farm field near the road this morning. I was actually driving to my shooting pit, shotgun and 8mm Mauser in the trunk. I know they all were laughing as I passed...28 days

Have been out with the bow twice. Have seen what I'm looking for, just wish he was 50 yards closer. Nice drop tine. Hunters been after him for 2 yrs. now. Swamp buck. Always seems to be 80 yds or more out. Lots of doe and smaller bucks. Nothing close enough for the long bow. Started cheating this past weekend. (Don't tell Lil Bit), but put corn out for them. lol. Also found beaver where they weren't last weekend. Got real wet from my butt down. lol. Going to start using a flashlight to get to my stand from now on. Things change quick when the 2 yr olds are dispersing. lol.

Here in Wisconsin our bow season starts in the middle of September. The whitetail pre-rut kicks in in late October and the full-blown rut occurs between the first and third weeks of November. By the time our gun season rolls around during Thanksgiving week most of the does have been bred and the bucks are out searching. The state is experiencing a glut of deer at this time. This year I can take one buck with my bow, one buck with a gun and four does with any weapon.

Again on Sunday night he got his second one. Now he says he's going to wait for a buck but he went and bought a bonus tag today. The freezer is starting to look a lot better.

Glad to hear you guys put some venison in your freezers this year. Between myself and my 15 yr. old son we took three 140 lb. plus does here in Northern Indiana this past season. I hunt with a T/C 50 cal. Renegade(circa. 1986) w/ a 4X Bausch & Lomb scope on it. Have'nt taken a buck since 2003, but never did care much for "antler soup" anyway !!! Backstrap is the second most favorite thing in my life !!!

Sounds like we are all eating well. I shot four bucks for my family and five more for some old folks. Wife also shot a small buck and two black bears. I also shot two black bears and a large Mt. Goat. The goat was the biggest bodied goat I have ever seen. it was 10.5 years old and was over 400 pounds. Wish I knew how to post a photo of it. It will score over 52 B&C, and would be higher but it is broomed off and the bases are roten in the back.

Making me hungry,
