I've had such a lucky/successful year, that I don't know what my mistakes are yet. I'm sure I'll come up with several by the end of the season.

1) Thinking I had deer patterned
2) Overhunting one farm because it's 10 minutes away while neglecting another 45 minutes away. (i.e. LAZY)

1. Mis weighed my ML powder charge, resulting in a shot under a buck.

2. Took a shot too quickly, resulting in a bad shot on another buck(still not 100% sure if a hit even, no sign found)

3. Had a misfire on follow-up shot on the previously mentioned buck.

4. Last time out during the eve, I returned to the truck, and started to eject the round from the chamber of my Dads Mod 742 that I been using since the misfire in my other rifle, only to realize that I had failed to chamber a round at all while in the stand.

Several more I'm sure...

1. I missed the deer ive been chasing for 3 years
besides that I cant complain ive passed some great deer trying to get them to the next level. and honestly its been a great year so far. for sure have some work to do starting in January but that is every season. so far that's all I got so far. but still a little time to go.

I have a renewable lease. I was very fortunate this year and bagged a wallhanger despite a lack of work. Bulls ate my food plot down to stubble last year so I didn't bother this year. My biggest mistakes:

1) not running cameras during the summer.
2} not hunting with my crossbow in late September. This gave another lease member a 130" 8 pointer that I could have had.
3) not finding a kid to take hunting with me.

Didn't pull the trigger on a good buck because the direction he was heading, I thought I'd get a better shot....needless to say he changed directions again and I got no shot...
