What's The Most Bucks You've Seen On A Single Sit?

Unread postby Spysar » Mon Jul 04, 2011 9:44 am

I have many days of seeing multiple bucks on stand. Sometimes several following one doe. The most I've seen in one all day sit was 17! :shock: The weird thing is I only saw four does. And the 17th one got dropped, I couldn't take it any more! :mrgreen:

So how many is the most you've seen in a single sit???

Here's a pic from near the spot. See the buck chasing in the background?

A buck will see you three times, and hear you twice, but he's only gonna smell you once.

Last year on heavily pressured public land Nov. 2nd I saw 6 bucks and 4 of them were over between 130"-150". Don't know if I will ever be able to repeat that again on public land.
This was over about 6 hours of an all day sit.

During 1st gun season opener 2 years ago on public land I saw over 150 deer and easily over 35-40 different bucks. It was freaking insane, I sat all day and there was never a second that I didnt' have deer around me. Passed up a lot of really nice bucks in hopes of a giant.

15 comes to mine, but there could have been a duplicate basket 6 pointer :? The morning started with 7 bucks chasing an early doe like a pack of wolves. Two were between 135-145" :D

Still don't know how I didn't end up with a shooting opportunity that day. . .

The most I've ever seen in one sit was 14. Everytime I tried to get down from the stand another one would show up. I finally shot the second to the last one. When I got to the ground another buck showed up. One crazy morning. Saw 32 deer that morning.

I think 6, on an urban bowhunt, only about 2hrs I had 40 deer come within 20 yards including the 6 bucks. I knew there was a big deer in the area and I was holding out for him.

One morning I had 5 bucks chasing a doe behind my house, two were big 10 pts.

In S.Western Iowa I have seen probably around 50 bucks in an all day rut hunt. As far as how many were in range? maybe a dozen in one hunt. Guessing, never really kept track. But some of the open areas like S.West Iowa you can see a long ways.

Andrae has a lease in Illinois and the 1st day I hunted there I probably had about 200 deer come past out to a field to feed. I think only about 20 or 30 had antlers though... That was a late season hunt.

Make no mistake though. Those are rare occurrences. The public land I am hunting in Wisconsin I can go days even a week in some areas without seeing a single deer. But there are public places I drive a couple hours to and see deer almost every sit.

Last Halloween on an all day sit I had 19 bucks come through, 15 were in range including three shooters over 130. They were chasing hard and never would stop for a shot.
