Now that the 2018-19 season is closed, what was everyone's perspectives on their season. I'll start: 1) Mature buck sightings - down for me. I saw one shooter buck on 11/9 that I estimate was at least a 4 yr old and was never offered a shot after 3 hrs of watching him tend a doe at 50-70 yards. My cams indicated I was off on my trips by one day with images of this buck within range of a regular stand location one day prior or one day after at least two of my trips to our farm. Hopefully he is still upright and in the neighborhood next fall. The only other mature buck sighting was an old brute I know well around my permission farm, but he was at 250 yrds with a doe and all I could do was watch him bump her around the field that morning. He has been a rare visitor to this farm over the past 4 seasons and this year was no exception. Most of my close encounters were 2 or 3 year old bucks. My cam images of 4+ bucks were also off this season on both my farm and my permission farm. 2) Weather - Nov temps were awesome, but on the days I scheduled trips to my farm I dealt with rain which made for some LONG days in the field. Late season, great for golf - not so good for hunting so late season was also SLOW on buck sightings. 3) Projects - built a hayrack blind (thanks Rjack for your help) and was able to slightly expand one of two plot locations on our farm. Screwed up some seed mixes and learned a valuable lesson about seeding rates. 4) Other - pretty good year overall. I put solid shots on a coyote and doe with my bow, I was with my neighbor when he shot a doe from my blind during second gun, and I got to spent some great time with my daughter during her first year hunting in late season.
