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

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.

We got 19 for 9 hunters, two of whom were mentoring youngsters at least part of the time.  Biggest was 10 pt, 17" my son shot opening morning.  Lots of deer around where we hunt (Marathon/Portage line).   This is our best kill in recent years, but not by much.
