Remain Undetected

Whitetail deer don’t like change. They will notice even the slightest change to their environment. We need to remain undetected while were hunting, scouting, and even while were hanging our stands.

Avoid making too many trips into your hunting area prior to the season. You’re only stinking up the place.


The Hardest Part

A friend of mine asked me, “How did you get so knowledgeable on whitetails?”

I answered, “I’ve spent a lot of time in the woods and more importantly I did the reading.”

I’ve read everything I could get my hands on about hunting.

No one said preparation was the fun part, but it’s important. I wonder why we believe we can skip it and still be successful.

Looking for Excuses

This is the first warning sign that a hunt is in trouble. Sometimes it begins even before the hunt does.

Excuses make it easier to back off when the going gets tough. Great hunters take responsibility for everything that happens in the field.

Instead of seeking excuses, the successful hunter is obsessed with avoiding excuses.
