Besides a trophy/mature buck.
My goals are to stay on stand longer, and keep a journal with every on stand sit documented.

Since I moved to 3-11 shift and have weekends off, my goal is to be in the stand every day if possible.

1) Put my sister and my wife on a deer or two. Especially my sister, whether it be a doe or a big ole buck. She needs to harvest a deer

2) Become a better hunter / become more disiplined hunting the wind.

3) Get on Fort Campbell and hunt.

4) Take a deer with a bow. This will be my second season bow hunting and I haven't killed one with a bow yet.

5) Have some dadgum fun, and make sure who ever I'm going with is having fun!!!!!

1. Kill my first ever buck 20 years is long enough I have paid my dues I think.
2. Kill a deer with a bow.

Anything beyond those 2 it would be beyond expectations

I have several goals this season. I seldom set goals but this year I have.
1-Enjoy sunrises more than shots.
2-Take more pictures.
3- Experiment more with some new ideas I have on attracting/calming scents.
4-Kill at least four fat does for the family.

I like BW way of thinking !

As you get older things that we take for granted seem more important .
My goals
1. Just to be able to go and forget things that bother me (been a trying year).
2.Would like to kill a mountable buck with my bow not that I haven't killed some respectable bucks with my bow but not one I would consider mounting .
3.Kill at least three deer for others (buck or doe)
4.Hopeful to spend more time with my grandson hunting (he is chasing does now )
5.After every hunt returning home uninjured along with all my TNdeer buds .

I've been more of a shooter than a full fledged hunter, but this is the first year i'm leasing land, scouting, attracting, running cameras, hanging stands/blinds, etc...All i want is for all the $ and work to pay off. Also, first time bow hunting and i can't put my bow down. I'm gonna be the happiest Tndeer member on here if i harvest a deer with my bow. PROMISE YOU THAT!! I take on all challengers

This year I want to focus on the process vs the results. If I take extra care to reduce my scent, hunt the wind as effectively as possible and get in and out of areas in the dark I hope to get results.

I have really got worked up about going to the woods and coming home empty handed. I need to be more patient and focus on the process.

Hopefully, watch my daughter kill her first deer.

Have a safe and fun hunting season, enjoying the company of friends and family.

Killing a decent buck would be nice.

keeping a journal is definitely on the list. I want to kill another old nanner doe, I want to kill a deer from the ground with a bow and I want to donate some of my deer to HFTH. Just off the top of my head. Oh and yes I want to kill a public land deer or two with my bow.

I can tell u one goal that isn't on my list and that's taking my wife in the woods with me. I love my wife dearly but I ain't going into the woods to hear some nagging. That's my hobby and passion.

I am going to do more videoing this year swapping out with my best friend . I love running the camera for somebody. And also since this will be my old man's first season retired I want to get him a Tennessee wall hanger. That is if he parts from his stubbornness and listen to me for once. Doubt I'll accomplish that though unless I add some zoloft to his early morning coffee.

I want to focus more on learning deer travel routes on my property.

I'd like to help my daughter get a deer if she is ready to shoot a rifle that is capable of killing a deer. Not sure she's ready for the recoil or not though.

Avoid letting my itchy trigger finger shoot more deer than I want. I killed 3 last year and I definitely don't want to eat that many deer!

Kill 10 deer. I hit one with my car in Dec of 2012. The wife hit one with hers in March of this year. $1,000 in about 6 months for deductibles. i figure 1 deer for every $100 spent. \:D

Same as every season...enjoy it. I killed big deer yet not really enjoyed the season and have not fired a shot, but really enjoyed every day out there...If you are in it to kill a big deer and will do so at most any cost, then imo, you just don't get it.

enjoy

Well after reading everyone's goals, I have decided to add two more,
1) Film my cousin's first kill.
2) Take a youngin with me
PS .......today squirrel hunting I found a white oak already dropping, major trails rounding the end of the ridge coming to it.
