    I think the best stat is the 44 hunts. I would love to be able to hunt that much.

    I've only got 6 pages left in my book. One for this mornings hunt and one for this afternoon. That will leave four. Still a lot of bow season left.
     
  5. That's cool,I need to start keeping a journal of my hunts.

    I just wish I had time to keep up with it.

    Isn't hard for me, only seen 12 and killed a couple of them.

    I'm using the deer hunting observation book from AGFC. You send them in when you're done.

    I write everything down I keep track of as soon as I get in the stand except deer seen. The next hunt I write down deer seen plus the current hunt. It's working so far.

    I think I've missed maybe 12-14 days since September 24th.....

    Seen 18 or 20 bucks....Haven't really kept track of it....
    Lost count of the does and fawns......

    Killed 2 does with a bow and 2 does with a rifle.....
    Missed one buck with a bow.....

    And the wind blew my rifle over and out of the tower stand that I was in today.....so no shooting for me but I'm hunting with a buddy's 12 year old son this weekend.....

  11. Lemme post up my stat sheet...

    Number of hunts: 30 (not "days", hunts--some of them are two hunts on one day)
    Hours in Stand: 65
    Average Time in Stand: 2.25 hours
    Bucks Seen: 15
    Does Seen: 29
    Fawns seen: 6
    Unidentified deer seen: 5
    Total Deer Seen: 55

    I've got barometric stats, moon phases, whether I used scents and calls, conditions, etc. on my sheet. First year I've ever kept up with them and I've logged every hunt so far.

    I've never kept stats like that. But I think I will next year.

    But I won't change my philosophy, the most important hunt is my next one.
