    You can see that I got out the least number of times this year, and second least amount of time in the woods. However, I did see a higher percentage of deer each time. Only one buck though, a fork, and that hurts. Especially since we were buck only this year.

    If your pattern holds, 2016 is the year.

    I was hoping to wait and do it with my new computer and Adobe Premiere, but it looks like that won't be ordered for another month or two. I may have to suck it up and use Movie Maker.

    Alot will depend on when this kid decides to arrive.

    After looking at the stats, I feel spoiled with what I have. I have sits where I see more deer in an afternoon than you do all season.

    Your 2014 numbers don't add up to a total of 21 like your years previous equal the total, weird.

    Seriously that is cool to see it broken down. I am an engineer and like numbers. I may have to start doing this.

    Good catch! I missed checking a box in my excel sheet, I updated the states above to make for the adjustment.

    That's some really good record keeping! I think your 2012 records tell the story. More time on stand equals more...

    Yeah, I was hoping to. It may take a while yet with the resort opening and Jr. taking up much of my free time.

    I did get a new iMac so I can finally use Premiere to edit. I've started to catalog and tag all my videos which will help greatly with the final edit.
