    When hunting deer in the snow, don't eat the yellow stuff.

    Always use wind to your advantage. Keep it Fun! or you will get burned out.

  4. #4
    Stay as calm as possible, if the deer are relaxed and so are you..then you are that much close to success!

    1. if you dont use or never tryed using a climber i would recomend it. it helped my hunting out more than anything i have done.
    The culture I stand for is sometimes lost into today’s society, when in fact society was built on the culture of THE HUNTER. A hunter is more than a predator, a hunter is a provider…a caretaker…a leader. I will never make excuses for who I am..

    1. Pick you battles, It's better to hunt once with the correct wind the to hunt 10 times with the wind not in your favor.
    2. If you have to ask yourself if he is a shooter, more than likely he isn't.
    3. You don't have to hunt high to be successfull, just in the right tree with the right wind.
    4. Invest in a comfy stand, the longer your in the stand the better your odds are (especially during rut).
    5. Shower and keep your clothes as scent free as possible. that means dressing and undressing at you vehicle before and after the hunt.
    Last but not least, you can't kill a big deer if they are not there. LET THEM GO SO THEY CAN GROW!

    Sit still
    But I'm sure that you respect the great American tradition of FAIRNESS, You wouldn't want to be the cause of thousands of poor, suffering Rats sitting in their tiny little Rat-pews in their tiny little Rat-churches, weeping teensy little Rat-tears of sorrow and crying high-pitched little Rat-cries of Rat-sorrow as the city garbage crew prepares to cremate your prey, the product of your vicious, human, species-centric BLOOD-LUST.

    Must be present to win!
    The harder I work, the luckier I get!
    Be unobtrusive, have good entry and exit routes!
    Stay mobile, deer pattern hunters quicker than most hunters pattern them!
    Keep the wind in your face and the sun at your back!

    Can't kill them unless you're out there.

    don't hog one stand more than others.... you can easily run the deer out....

  13. #13
    Don't worry about what others think and shoot what makes you happy. Oh yeah, and always have back up TP for your back up TP.......

    I agree 100%

    Big bucks bed with the red fox

    hang stand 100 yrds. Down wind of doe bedding areas.

    Whatever you do ,don't let him know your after him.

    When scouting ,make noise and talk loud ...let them know your in the woods ,so they can determine what action to take long before you see them.
    They can handle this pressure really well,it's that sneeky sudden surprises they hate.

    Inter/exit undetected ...never hunt the same stand three days in a row.

    Hang/move stands ,just before a rain /snow.

    Better sitting on the ground than to climb the wrong tree and stick out like a sore thumb a 1/4 mi away.

    Get in stand /or buddy in stand ,then look at the horizon....can you still see "something up there?...if so move to a different tree.
    Blend into your cover and be part of it ....not an add on.

    Young bucks are easy to call,trick,and the most curious.
    Old bucks are smart 50 weeks out of the year.
    Alpha does are the smartest 52 weeks a year.

    Shoot the deer in your mind at every possible place in your stand ,before you ever see a deer.

    Tell somebody where your going to hunt every time you leave for the woods.
    Even to what part of the woods you'll be in.

    You can pee off your stand and it will not bother deer.

    Don't spend a lot of time hunting over scrapes(this will require more time to explain)

    hunt 10-2 and during rain/snow.

    Less calling better than too much calling.
    Tickle the bones ,rather than beat them.

    If you get sleepy climb down and take nap on the ground.

    If you see rut chasing going on ,on the other side of the woods ...go after them ...slowly...better chance of getting shots.

    Pass on the small bucks

    learn to blood trail and what deer do after the shot and be persistant.

    Never shoot at the entie deer ,pick a small spot and make d** sure it's a deer.

    The mornings you want to sleep in ,is the morning the biggest buck in the county walks by your stand.

    Have at least 4 different stands for the wind.

    Practice,practice,practice. Learn to judge yrds. Before you hunt/shoot at deer.

    Clear your path to your stand ,not only what you walk on ,but limbs at eye level.

    Never ,if possible, hunt alone it's really more fun with two/three guys.

    Friends come and go ...hunting buddies are forever!

    A lot of great info here! The BOLD Red is a fact, but the only thing worse is when your buddy can see your stand from his, comes back to the camper to wake you up and spends two hours rubbing it in your face that the buck not only walked under your stand, but spent half an hour there tending a doe.

    Don't over think the situation, the deer is relying on his instincts and you should rely on yours!

    remember to control your breathing, that will help keep you in the moment and slow your mind from racing when the time comes ...and the time will come . .....so be ready and breath.

    my tip, only move when the deer's vison is block or they are looking the other way.
    The only great thing about having such a quiet bow is that it gets real loud when something breaks.

    Dryfire is an old indian word for "I'll take this one!"
