I personally think you make your own luck. What I mean is putting in scouting time and making sure they have browse. Staying on stand is a big part also.

What's your measure of "success?"

When it comes to stand time, personally I would rather spend far fewer but smarter hours on stand than lots of unproductive hours on stand. In essence, I would rather hunt 3 hours in the right stand than 3 days in the wrong stand.

Lol, I can't count that high. I let does walk last year because of the die off we had. Don't know for sure what exact disease it was, but it got quite a few. Didn't see any big bucks, but had some on camera.

Again, that depends on what "success" is: success at killing a deer? A buck? An old buck? A big buck? What is "success?"

Some years I may pass 30 or more deer, but last year I only passed 10 deer (1 buck, 8 does, and 1 fawn).

I think alot also has to do with the property you hunt.

. Success is all in the mind of the beholder ! What some deems success will not be to another . Attaining personal goals would be a successful year to me but with that being said just being able to spend time in God's creation and forgetting our life's troubles could be considered a successful season. There are many who don't have the physical ability to even go hunting . Our hunting privileges are being threatened every day so while you are able and have the means go have your successful hunting season with Godspeed. !
