    Where have the deer gone? I have not seen any for about a week or so. My oldest son (16) shot a nice 8 pointer on Turkey day on the property we hunt. But since then we have seen very few. This last week we never saw any. Even went walking around hoping to spook some out so my youngest (10) could get his first but didnt even spook any. We hunt in Gaston County.

    Buddy, The talk around work is the same but I have seen deer each time out lately...My Buddy seen 15 last evening, they are hitting the corn Hard here in Davidson Co. Not sure when I'll get back out but I Will..I was gonna take a Big Doe Sat. morning at 8:30 that was with 2 smaller ones but I couldn't get on them fast enough and when I did, they had zigged and Zagged and I couldn't tell which was which and out of fear of shooting a Button-Head I held off and didn't shoot and they wandered off through the Johnson Grass.

    It has been pretty slow these last few weeks. Between chasing a huge non typical and work among other things this year has been one of my worst as far as numbers. I killed two, one being a nice 7 an the other a decent doe, it has been slow. I have to work or have other things to attend the rest of the week so the last days I have to hunt will be Sunday and Monday the 2nd. So if any you guys in Alamance county want to shoot a decent doe to thin the heard and don't want to mess with it then let me know. I'll take the whole thing pick it up and do everything to it. I'll take as many as I can get since I process all my deer meat.

    I have been a long time on looker of this site. I check it out 3-5 time a day just to look at the forums. I to hunt in Gaston and it has been dead since after the first week of rifle season. Im not sure if its the weather or something else but it seems like we didnt have a rut this year, I know we did but I just couldnt tell you when it was. Last year the week of thanksgiving everytime you saw a doe a buck wasnt far behind. I have hunted harder this year then any year before and it has been the least productive year yet.
