Honestly no idea, I have had a few years where I never ran in to a mature buck and dont kill many does as my family dont enjoy the meat so I save my butcher money for wall hangers. When I was a kid (8-14) hunting on 5k acres with 5 guys I shot does upon does every weekend and thought it was completely normal to kill 25-40 does per year lol all the old men just wanted the doe patrol done by the kids. We had a walk in freezer and all the equipment to butcher our own and 10acre food plots so I was completely shocked when I realized none of that was normal lol. For the past 10 years or so I would say 75% of the time I kill one, killed 2 nice bucks last year but nothing yet so far.
Well I didn't get it done so my streak ends this year. I had an illness early season that kept me out of the woods until just a couple weeks ago and then my work schedule just didnt allow a lot of time in the woods. I hunted less this year than any other year ever.
I like to think the deer i didnt kill will be a bigger buck next year or any doe I would have killed may drop a buck that we kill in a few years.
I was at 31, that ended last year. Could have killed a bunch of does, but I passed due to lack of deer in the area. My Diddy was at 64 years, got skunked this year. He did break his fibula in two spots in Oct. at 76 years old, it has been a little rough on his hunting. I told him we could put an asterisk by this season.
