I hunted opening morning (near Tekamah) and yesterday afternoon (near Springfield), and our group has seen a total of 20 deer thus far – more than we saw during our first two hunts last year.
Now, I did see a yearling by itself yesterday in a place where the landowner has found one dead deer, but it seemed healthy.
So when a friend tells me that he isn’t hunting this year because there are “no deer,” I feel even better about telling him that his statement just isn’t true. And I was a little skeptical myself, I have to admit. But my confidence is growing each hour I sit in the stand, and yours should too.
But I would like to hear any reports that you have on deer numbers and the general location you’re reporting from.
