Whitetail Hunting Season

Well what can I say, this hunting season has been nothing short of a complete disappointment to me this year as I haven't seen any bucks at all and only 4 does during rifle season . The poachers have taken all my deer where I hunt and what the poachers haven't gotten the dogs around here have been running off. My food plots that I planted weren't even touched by the deer cause of this. Next spring I'm planning a trip to Rutherford county, Tennessee to find property there to hunt and if that doesn't pan out then I may have to resort to hunting on management areas which I'm totally against due to the hunting pressures of so many people scouting during the hunting season when they can't find any deer. One day before I die I'd like to go hunt on a outfitter ranch but the cost is so high that probably won't ever happen for me either though it would be great if it did. May come down to leasing a farm to hunt on and if so I have a feew other guys that want to join me and hunt together which will help with the cost of the lease but then you have to worry about livestock getting shot and fences getting cut and insurance to cover those sort of things. There is no easy way to hunt anymore like it used to be but I guess thats the price we pay for our heritage to continue.

There is no excuse for poaching, they should all be incarcerated. I don't know if this will help but, I go through thinking it is worth it just to see deer in the wild and if I fill a tag than I just consider that a bonus.
Fortunately I had a bonus this year.

Keep thinking positive!

Rick; your right the only excuse I can think of for poaching is if the family is starving without food but I think every church in the world would help these people out if they were hungry. Maybe the laws should change allowing the real hunters to shoot poachers without repraisal to the hunters and save the taxpayers money by it. My last to times out has been seeing dogs chasing deer so i'm fixing to start hunting dogs instead of deer. My luck I wouldn't see any dogs either.

Joe; thanks for the holiday wishes and vote of luck next year. I'm planning a trip to my hometown in rutherford county, Tennessee to try to acquire hunting property there again but from what I've been told it's all either leased or no hunting any more so I may have to resort to hunting on management areas which I hate due to all the hunting pressure and rude people you find there.
