It was a very strange year from the beginning. All the full moons hit at the wrong time of month. Huge acorn crop from all the rain in the Spring. Then 6 months of drought

I've seen lots of doe but not enough bucks worth shooting. Public land any hunter will take any deer and not allow the bucks to grow. I guess that's just about anywhere though.

The public land is overhunted, the buck quality and deer numbers can’t withstand the onslaught of the long seasons. Management of public and private land should be different in my opinion.

Quality of Bucks are better than the past seasons. Seems like they are less deer. Overall the state doing a good job on management. Could be tweak in a spot or too.
