Two years in a row for me. Hasn't happened since I killed my first deer in 1994 but I'm O.K. with it as long as I had fun.

Good luck to you next year and I'm sure you kill a slob. Having a bad year makes the next one that much sweeter when you kill one.

You did get your moneys worth out of your license that is for sure. Not all bad getting skunked. No big taxi bill to pay.
You can fool some of the bucks, all of the time, and fool all of the bucks, some of the time, however you certainly can't fool all of the bucks, all of the time.

It's been discussed here several times....What's a bigger motivator Sucess or Failure. So is eating a tag a failure because you didn't kill something?

Guess I've really never looked at it that way. If you enjoyed your time afield, spent time with friends and family, were in the game, set a standard and follow things you have a passion for. So eating a tag is a problem?

Season ended here yesterday. I scouted a new property bow in hand. Ill be eating all my tags for the second time since 1997. Both times I have had to eat tags, I had shots and elected not to take them.

Next season is only 8 months away, and the deer you didn't get will be one size bigger. Cheer up!
A buck will see you three times, and hear you twice, but he's only gonna smell you once.

The funny thing is......I'm betting several walked by you that I'd have LOVED to have sent an arrow through.

There has always (and always will be) been an element of luck involved (in hunting mature whitetail bucks). You'll be fine.

Get some rest, pal.

You came real close and passed several that will be shooters next year. Maybe next year will be the year you get the 200"+ (your just saving up inch's :mrgreen: ).

As others have said, hopefully there was enjoyment and satisfaction along the way! There is a lot to be said for keeping at it and hunting hard. That can be very rewarding. Hopefully it has been for you.
