  • After 3 years of seeing this buck on camera I finally got my shot on the 17th of Nov at 5PM. He was running around the property for the first daytime movement of the year. I heard him coming across the overgrown field at 4:30 after a couple tending grunts and then nothing seen for the next 20 mins, until I finally caught him easing down the trail toward me. Put the Savage 308. on his shoulder and brought him home. 3 years ago this buck was shot by the neighbor in the front leg, last year his rack was deformed, this year he finally grew his rack back. He was 3 1/2 when he was shot the first time so I expect him to be no less than 6 1/2.

    A comment titled: 2014 Terrible Deer Year for Me in response to a report titled: Anyone else having this experience

    I was glad to see that I was not the only one in the state seeing lower deer numbers this year. I have been hunting in the Piedmont region for 20 years and usually have 3 deer in the freezer by now. This year I took 2 weeks off of work and hunted daily, more than I usually hunt. I only saw three total deer while hunting. I hunted several different areas including Jordan game lands. Usually driving in to the Game Lands I see deer everywhere on the sides of the roads, but not this year. I am not sure what is going on but something is very different this year. It will be interesting to read the actual state harvest numbers at the end of the year. I will continue to hunt deer hard into December now when I usually can get onto ducks. Good Luck Everyone.
