There's a good bit of luck involved, at least sometimes. Tow of the biggest bucks killed by friends of mine were pure dumb luck. Right place, right time. Oh, and straight shooting.

The older I get, the more I just enjoy being in the woods. Sometimes it's about the hunt, but mostly remembering the things that happened in specific places in years gone by. It happens when you hunt the same area for forty years. I hope there's some more.

I bet someone might of directed some of your friends to those places where they had dumb luck.. I know one of my friends was put in a stand by another friend on our property.... Guess what.. He killed a very nice buck and it was the first deer he ever killed.. Was it luck??? Some, but he was put in a place where that could happen.... \:\)

gator, nobody directed them. It happens. Both of the mentioned bucks were killed in the mid-1970's before there were deer everywhere. There were still a number of counties that didn't even have a season then. Granted, the deer has to be there to kill, but skill, preparation, or confidence aren't always in the mix. I understand what you meant.

I believe hunting is like most any thing we do in life. The more you put into it the more you will get out of it.
