doing. I see post all the time about, if certain things work or not while hunting. The leafy suit post got me thinking about what is the real answer???

Well, we all have questioned ourselves on long days in the woods. I have learned over the years that if I did certain things and it seemed to work/help.... Guess what... I would keep on doing it until it proved me wrong. The most important thing to have while hunting is confidence in what YOU are doing. Hunting is a learning process and that's what makes it fun.

Always keep an open mind when you ask for advise on a hunting forum because you will get several opinions but keep in mind that you will have to find out what works for you..... \:\)

i think deer hunting in general is one of the easiest types of hunting there is- big animal, marginal eye sight, high population density. truely an animal whose speed and agility has made not have to worry about any animal that is further than 70 yards away.it is not about skill. you can take any novice of the street, train im to hit an 8 inch circle at 80 yards with a modern firearm with a scope (something anyone can do) put him in a shooting house with a rest and he can kill a deer or 3 a day. the two factors that most closely linked to success are time and access.

Hunting to me starts at the moment you wake up!!

It's more than what you experience in the stand!

I guess we could start a different topic that says>>

What does Hunting mean to you???

Nope... You have to make luck happen... How.... You have to give some thought about it and hope things work in your favor.... When it does, it's luck.... When it doesn't, it's a bad day....

How do I know this.... My hunting season is all year long and I depend on luck but I have to put myself in the position to make it happen.... That is luck with some thought..... \:\)

Most living things on this earth are creatures of habit... When you give that some thought.... Luck will happen... \:\)
