This is the way I look at it, to get better as a hunter you have to examine your self; If you have a lot of your actions documented consistenly then you can look at what you have done and what produced the best results.

If I am not seeing any deer in a spot and I have seen plenty of deer at in the past I like to try to understand why. I find it a lot easier to pin point the reason I'm not seeing any deer if I have solid information to support my theory. Even though there are so many things that have an effect on a hunt trying to figure what went wrong or what went right is very much part of the fun of deer hunting for me.

Extremely well said MattR. That was the original reason I started collecting such detailed data--to help myself learn to be a more successful hunter. And analysis of all that data has certainly done that.

I guess I'm a nerd when it comes to it or something, or maybe it's because in the military we documented everything. But it still makes sense that it can definately help you be more successful.

I'm a hard-core data head (read: numbers nerd). I best understand and conceptualize ideas only after all of the "input" has been converted to numbers. That's just the way my mind works.

I keep a log and fill it with tons of details of each hunt. If the day comes that i can no longer hunt, i will be able to lose myself in those pages.
