I started bowhunting about 2 yrs ago, albeit not consistently. I went out maybe 2 times each year (I moved a lot and had a hard time finding land), so of course I never killed anything. However, my first year in Charlotte I spent every weekend of deer season in Uwharrie. I would go out 2 days in a row and spend hours in a stand or a blind. I switched spots maybe 3x since I never even saw so much as a raccoon. What gives? Am I crazy or has this happened to other people? I am leasing land for 2017 with higher hopes. Maybe I am doing something wrong?
Oh I hunted with my boyfriend who's been hunting for years, and of course the one day I was too sick to go he actually killed a buck in MY spot, on his FIRST year ever bowhunting
I don't want to get discouraged. I am going coyote hunting and turkey hunting for the first time this yr and hoping its going to be a bit better.
