I am curious to how many on here that truly think they are a deer/deer hunting addict. I know I am my mind is racing and always thinking of ways to out smart mature deer. I am ate up with the chess match. this time of the year is one of my favorites because imo it is one of the most important part of the year. you get your season started before it starts and I think it has a lot to do with the success you have during the season. hanging stand, clearing lanes, food plots, mineral sites, I don't run trail cameras but you can for sure throw that in it for some, all kinds of things. I think about deer every single day of the year and have been like this for a good while. but I am ate up with the chess match that goes on. I am curious to know at least on this site how many people are like this. I know if I were told tomorrow I could not deer hunt again I would seriously probably go into depression I would not know what to do. same goes for turkey hunting and I love it but there is just something about deer that gets me going.

I love deer hunting but I move on to other pursuits as the year progresses. After the season I line up next year's hunting spots. In July I begin hanging cameras and in October I start bow hunting. I ride my Harley and go to the range the rest of the year. I think I'll do some fishing soon too.

I have only one passion in life, and it is deer. I dedicate as much of my time as possible scouting, studying, and hunting them. I would rather go shed hunting and get skunked than to kill a big tom, catch a ten pounder, find 500 hundred mushrooms, whatever.

Yup, sums me up pretty well - the guys at the office hear about hunting and deer management all year long \:\)

Used to be obsessed. Not as much any more. Still a passion but not an obsession.

Got wrapped up in it harcore for a couple of years. These days, I continually look to spread my hunting experience out over many different pursuits and be more well rounded. There is something to be said for being a specialists, but there is a big world of hunting out there.

When I used to have larger tracts of property to hunt it used to drive me to find the deer almost to the point of being obsessed . But now that all we have are small tracts to hunt there is so much in season scouting to be had although it does pay to do some . As I've grown older it don't bother near as much but knowing a good one is around still ruffles my feathers some

I'm always plannin my next deer hunt... I would say I go very little time without thinking about deer hunting strategy throughout the entire yr.. Turkey's are a good distraction, but they just aren't the same. I may love each turkey hunt as much as each deer hunt, but killing a big ole tom ain't like killin a big bruiser buck! Also turkey hunting is just very different... It doesn't require scouting 6,3, or even 1 month before the season to be successful... To me it's s day based endeavor where as deer hunting is a season long endeavor, and really even longer than that.. I guess the same could be said for deer, but since I've started taking it as serious as I do now.. I feel like I've become a much better mature buck hunter. I'll fish or play a little golf to pass the time but there isn't much id pick over sittin in a tree stand on the last week of November, on a cold frosty mornin!..

I love deer hunting, but if I ever have been obsessed, it was over the ducks!
