Deer Season 2017

This year's deer season was very slow as we saw the fewest deer in recent history.  Some of this may be due to a decrease in the number of bow hunters actively hunting and remarkably bad weather for the first week of gun season.  However fewer deer seems to be the general feel in the entire area.  We did have a little success as Michael Bowyer harvested a doe from Rye Patch wooden ladder stand on Opening Day October 1.  The only other deer taken was a doe from the Rye Patch gun blind by Ben over the Thanksgiving weekend.  It is a good thing we don't measure success solely in deer harvested but in time spent in the woods with nature as well.
