Let's hear how everyone's hunt went. We had 4 hunters, we got 5 deer. I was the only one who did not shoot one. I would have been happy to kill one but I was fine with  not gutting one. Burnett county

getting fired up for deer season again.  I think half my trail cameras out right now have a better chance of taking a picture of a fish than a deer as everything around here is flooded.  I don't think I ever posted this last year.  So here is the video of the second time out walking during the gun season with my son on the last day of the season.  Turned out to be a memorable day.  scored 127 9 point

That's a good perspective, Hookem. What everybody wants out of their hunting ground is different. But seeing nice deer is pretty much a universal.

Hunting land is not worth the price in Wisconsin anymore.. I have  7 ac. on the Flambeau River with  a cabin. Should have no problem getting 60K for it.  I can put 60K in AT&T stocks at get $3,000 in dividends a year almost tax free. Plus , I dont have to worry about it or pay taxes and maintain it. I can use it to go bear hunting in Minnesota that every year, or Wyoming for antelope, or just go fishing on the gulf of Mexico for a week every winter.  If it were not for good grouse and bear hunting that land would be all but worthless. I do however enjoy catching smallmouth in the river  but have not caught a walleye in several years and I didn't keep a single fish last year from the river .

I would expect land prices to settle down or decrease in much of the state.  You aren't alone.  People are fed up with spending 2-4K per acre to hunt and only be let down when big bucks aren't flooding their food plots like they see on TV.  I know a lot of guys that are instead hunting in other states and spending much less and routinely getting nice bucks.

It scored 141 1/8. Was a bit surprised. Brow tines of 9” and 8” add up. Only had a 13.5” inside spread.
