What’s Up Outdoors: A slow start to the deer hunting season
The sights and sounds of deer hunting have been far and few between for the start of the 2020 rifle season.
So far this year our deer season hasn’t had much to do with deer. It seems more like we are just sitting in trees watching birds. The gunshots have been pretty quiet and scrapes and fresh sign has been non-existent.
This was the first year that I never even saw a doe or fawn from the stand I’ve been hunting since I was 14 or so. But each year, as the deer numbers seem to be lower, amazingly there is more and more wolf sign? But since I know we don’t have a wolf problem I guess I don’t know what’s going on.
Well, I hope everyone walks away from this deer season with some great memories, and hopefully a little something for the wall.
