At this point I have not seen a game animal in over three weeks. I get up early, usually around 3 AM, drive an hour or two, and don't see anything. I'm sure a better hunter would be more productive, but the fact is the areas I have to hunt are not very productive. A Management Officer told me that only two deer have been killed all season on one of the properties I had access to. This is both encouraging and discouraging. I am encouraged that it is not just me that is having problems, but am discouraged because the chances of me killing anything there is very low.

I have two nice,private land deer hunts lined up, one for the middle of November and one for the beginning of December. After December rolls around I have access to much more land. Predator seasons are open, plus rabbit and squirrel. I'm thinking of taking a hunting break until then. I prefer small game hunting to deer anyway.
I think this Thursday after work I'm going to take my daughter fishing instead of going hunting. It is supposed to be nice and I'd rather spend time with her than driving all evening only to see nothing. I've always said that hunting should be fun. If I'm not having fun what is the point?
