    I kinda know what you mean. I went Muley hunting last week saw does everywhere but no bucks. Almost everyone around here was doing the 2nd season Elk thing though so I kept trying. Spent the part of a day hiking back around 5 miles to a nice canyon area I had found, took a nice elevated firing posistion and waited-------nothing. Headed back to the truck and started home when a nice six pointer walks across the trail in front of the truck. I know I'm still on BLM, I check the clock(9minutes left), I throw it in park get out grab my rifle from the case and pop 2 rounds in the mag. put my blaze orange cap on while putting one of the rounds in the chamber walk around the front of the truck and step off the road. The deer is strolling along about 80yds out put the xhairs on his chest and next thing I know I'm driving about 85yds to pick him up. That deer must have had a death wish is all I can say. Oh well just meat in the freezer. Good luck bagging one of those "Urban Commado Deer"

    Got skunked on Elk and Muley this year, damn animals... saw deer while I was elk hunting and then the following week saw elk while deer hunting. Might have to go deer shooting in TX next year just to get some meat in da freezer.

    I guess I can join the club. I went out hunting whitetails and got skunked. My buddy and I saw plenty of does, but the bucks must have been hiding in holes with the ground pulled in over 'em. I only say one hunter who had managed to fill his tag, and he admitted it was sheer luck. He was hiking toward a good spot to glass and he glanced into a side canyon as he strolled by, and there under a tree maybe 100yds was a nice 3x3. He was the only one out of literally a dozen hunters to even see a buck, let alone get one :(. We glassed likely spots for 4 days, and I must've hiked 15 miles over some really rugged terrain. Nothing. Oh well, there's always next year :D I'm not putting in for whitetails again though - those little bastards are too damn hard to spot. I'll go for muleys, and try for an elk tag again, of course :wink1:

    Yeah, when they're not being hunted is when you see 'em. They know when hunting season is :D

    This years hunting.

    All I can say is thank God for salmon fishing, cause this years hunting sucked! First three weekends were so dry you couldn't get 50 feet off the road without every critter knowing you were there for miles, then the last two weekends were just plain nasty, unless you like frost/snow/freezing rain/just plain rain/freezing rain/snow...:doah:

    Course we DID get to go out and find two "lost" (can I say never-had-a-clue should not be in the woods with a gun socal transplants here?) hunters as a bonus.

    Every cloud has a silver lining I guess:D
