    Hunted area 48 Saturday and Sunday morning. Killed a doe Saturday morning, saw a buck that was right at 12" wide. Sunday morning saw a nice buck but no shot. My dad and brother both saw legal bucks with no shot available. If the weather had been better Sunday morning I think we could have done better. Saturday we figured out where we needed to be, but Sunday morning was steady sleet and freezing rain.

    Hunted area 116 and to my surprise took a 2 1/2 year old buck that was ANTLERLESS. He appeared to have either shed the antlers or been in one heck of a fight. The bases where the antlers should be were already dark and scabbed over. He weighed 99 pounds and the guide and hunt control were not overly concerned about this incident. I thought I was shooting a larger doe. Tagged it as a doe. Any saw this before around this area of the state?

    Back in the late 90's we got drawn for the 1st weekend. Buddy killed a spike (this was before the they had antler restrictions) when we went to drag it they pulled off in his hands.

    There were only 2 hunters that did not show for area 116. I think there were 2 bucks ( mine that didnt have horns ) and 4 does taken.

    Not sure how many were killed in 48, but in a day and a half of hunting I heard less than 10 shots anywhere.

    My buddy who hunted area 102 (or maybe it was 103, I can't remember for sure) said that only 10 out of 18 showed up for their hunt. And of those, 5 were the "guides" and whoever was with them. He said no one killed anything in their group and didn't even hear but one shot "anywhere close".

    I sorta figured there might be some decent movement out there this weekend and some meat on the ground!

    I hunted area 81 all day Saturday and sunday. only got a glimpse of a deer on Saturday. I think only 2 doe were taken this weekend. seems like a good area with lots of sign but the deer just wasn't moving. the party leaders were great and very helpful. I am a tier 4 hunter and this was my fifth year at knox and I am very greatful to have the opportunity to hunt there. thanks again to my guides and the whole fort knox group for giving me this hunt. see ya next year!!!

    Hunted Area 82. Only a few deer seen by all and none taken. Area 85 took a decent buck and a doe on Sunday. Only 8 people hunting in our area, of which five were guides and their guest. Decent sign in the area, just no movement seen.

    Not sure what was killed, but I was in 48 across the river and I didn't hear any shots.
