  5. What road or part of Kelleyes were you off? Right now in the late season, there seems to be more deer on the east side of the island. I've been off the west side near west bay and it's hard to target them somedays.

    Congrats on the doe . My season has not been good at . I have hunted more this year than I ever have. I think my problem is is that I have my goals set on one particular buck that is still roaming the property I hunt even after gun season. I would settle for a nice doe right now at this point. But I am not going to give up ! I was off work today and decided to go out bowhunting this evening. Saw 2 does about 4:40 and after they disappeared I heard footsteps of a deer but couldnt pinpoint where it was at. Here this buck had slipped in on my right side and was coming my way. He was about to hop a fence to go on the neighbors property and somehow someway I was actually able to call that buck right to me . Just as I was getting to draw back to prepare for the shot he stuck his nose in the air and off he went. After all I have been through this year that was a very discouraging experience. But there is still hope since I was able to experience this one day after gun season. It makes me wonder if the second rut that sometimes come in is going to be good. But I am not going to give up !!!!!! I will say all my bad experiences this year deer hunting has made me a much better hunter. But thats deer hunting for ya !!!!!!
