Hunting in the wrong spotContributors to this thread:

Climbed up in this spot this morning hoping to get a doe. After the eleventh buck came by I have concluded there is no does in this area. Fun problem to have i suppose.
I’m sorry for all your pain and suffering right now ! Lol.. good luck .. Mike
Pictures Or video of the bucks? I guess they were too small For you to shoot?
If there is 11 bucks, you can bet your bottom dollar there are does.
Here you go wild, the biggest of the morning and yes not big enough to punch my tag this early in the season.
Oops the video
And a couple others this morning
Yup I’d be punching my tag but of course this is MA and not Iowa.
I feel your pain. Happened to me once in eastern CO when I had a late season doe tag. Only saw bucks, including the biggest whitetail I've ever seen alive. I never did get a shot at a doe. Then I took my wife out there and she shot a doe with her rifle at 30 yards in about a half hour. Go figure.

I bet that doe was downwind and she was using NJ!
Scrappy, good job really. It has been very slow for me, i would rather have your problem. GL!
Scrappy, I had sort of the same luck this past Saturday morning. Second sit in this stand, had 5 bucks, 3 at 10yds, other 2 just under 20 yards. Didn’t see any does which is very unusual from this stand. To early in the season to hang my any deer tag on a nice buck when there are real nice ones around. Where are the does when you want one? Lol
Thanks! This time of year I miss the whitetail woods! Of course I would have filled a tag on that one you passed:)
This is me. For the last few years seems I have trouble finding a doe. Bucks come by often. Maybe I need to rethink my strategies.

You Iowa boys are spoiled! ;-) I don;t think I saw 11 bucks all last SEASON!
