    i shot alot of deer my first year but had alot of time in it. the best advice for youre first year is to be patient and study the patterns. also make sure you are pot during the rut as much as possible!

    I have hunted 4 years (although only a few weekends each year) and have not killed one yet. I hit a doe in the shoulder two years ago but she lived to see another day. Hopefully this will be my year!

    about a one month, I was lucky enough to have a nice little spike come in my direction. It was also my first deer.

    I started bow hunting last year and just saw one small fork that I decided to pass on. Hopefully this year I will see a couple more deer.

    The first month I hunted, but like steve182, I also would have bagged a deer sooner if I hadn't been strictly a buckhunter at the time.

    I was buck hunting only at the time, or i'dve probably scored a lot sooner. This year i'll take a doe for the freezer right away and hold out for a Wallhanger. Have killed a few decent bucks with my bow, but the Good ones on my wall are rifle kills. Hope that'll change when i go to Ohio in November.

    It was my first time out in my second year. Took a nice fat doe, and boy did she taste good!

    It took me two years before I got my first deer and I have yet to get a buck with my bow, but I haven't given up.
