Sorry to see that Jack Pine. Better luck next year.
Happens to all of us at one time or another! I ate tag soup on an Illinois gun tag and that's kind of hard to do!No venny this year. View attachment 162242
Just didn't see much when I was out. Not many deer in this area. Saw very few on cams, even at night.What all happened during your season?
A little tagburger goes a loooong way; it's bitter and the taste lasts all yearWe usually have "tag soup" down this way Cal...feeds more mouths...lol
Old Jack never developed a taste for tag, no matter how ya fix it, soup or sandwich, ya just can't get rid of that bitter taste hahaha.Me too JP....
makes the good seasons that much more enjoyable... View attachment 162254
Been there,done that! But man he sure did taste good!!! I don't trophy hunt anyway,not saying I won't TAKE a trophy! I'd take a two year old any day over a large rack,you can't eat the horns,LOL.Sorry to see your tags. It happens. I still remember a year I took a button and was critiszed. It was the only deer I saw. Get um next year
I changed this year and went back to hunting the old way. I said I'd take 'em as they came and believe me brother it changed my season. I still had my own ethics on what I would and wouldn't shoot but I totally enjoyed this year AND I filled the freezer. A lot more fun again too getting to shoot my bow at some deer vrs sitting and passing on everything just waiting on a big deer. BTW, I never did see those bigger deer.....again....this year. Hope you get you one jac63.... A combination of too picky early and unlucky late has me looking at unfilled what-might-have-beens...
