2nd day gun buck from 2015. was watching a doe in my scope about 80 yds out in a cedar swamp. saw his antlers march through the scope and dropped the scope down and to the right a bit found his vitals and squeezed one off. thought it was a bad shot so waited about 3 hours to go look. i figured he was right there when i saw crows dropping down from the trees where i shot him. sure enough he was laying right there! 16 3/8" inside 10 point.

Was a very good season for us in Jefferson County. I saw over 40 deer with three being mature bucks we had on trail camera. I was able to harvest a nice 8pt that will score in the 130's and my brother in law took an 8pt Sunday that will score around the same. My son (11) had his first encounter with a mature 10pt on Friday am that would not offer a clean shot, but the experience he gained was priceless as I mentored him through why he shouldn't have shot. Our neighbor also took a really nice 10pt we had on camera but had a broken G3 since we last had him on cam.

Only seen one buck this season which I did not get a chance for a shot. Congrats to all that got a buck!

My area of northern Oconto County was buck-only (for me) this year. There were 200 public land antlerless permits for northern Oconto County and I did not get one. Which is fine.

Saw 8 assorted antlerless deer on Opening Day, then 2 on Sunday before leaving the woods to watch the Packer game. Was feeling pretty good to at least see some deer, even if I couldn't shoot them.

Had an antlerless permit for southern Oconto County so I headed down there Monday morning. Saw zero deer hunting dawn to dusk, very little sign, a few rubs and scrapes.

Headed back to southern Oconto County on Tuesday. Saw zero deer from dawn to about 3:30PM. Then, as if by magic, two enormous does appeared out of the swamp. I drilled the larger of the two with the 35 Whelen. Plenty of delicious venison for the winter.

Slept in Wednesday morning after the arduous drag out of the woods late Tuesday night. Was feeling pretty good about the plump deer swinging from the maple tree. Roasted a turkey and watched football while it rained all day Thursday.

Was back at my buck-only area Friday and Saturday but only saw one unknown deer in the distance. Went home early Sunday.

Pretty typical year for me in the Nicolet. Happy to have some fresh venison, even if those Nicolet monsters elude me year after year after year.

Depending on where the leg is hit do not assume the doe will not make it. We have had this same doe around for two years and we have a ton of yotes. Don't get me wrong if you want a deer than she would be a good one to shoot but do not take her out just cause you think that she won't make it.

Clark county 7-13 guys for 7 days of hunting shot one fork horn and saw 19 deer. Very poor deer population.
