It is the last week of the NJ permit hunting season and the same 3 stands that I have been seeing deer out of all season have come up goose-egg. I just moved up here from NC and am wondering WTF? Is there a certain time of the year that the deer up in this area just say "naaa I dont want to be shot today". Just looking for a little input. Oh and yes I did get a nice talking to about taking my .308 to the woods in NJ. Their rifle season is actually for muzzleloader. Oh well no ticket no harm. So now I use a Scoped 20 ga slugger.
