Take Careful Shots

Too often a buck will come in from behind you. Be patient and don’t take shots at an extreme angle. A missed shot and your chances of seeing that deer again will go to slim to none instantly.

Dress for Success

Invest in hunting clothes that will keep you comfortable. A good camouflage pattern won’t help you if you’re freezing your buns off. I prefer to dress in layers. This way I can remove layers to keep from overheating and add layers when I ’m not moving.

Don’t Bet the Farm

If you’ve located a big buck close to a road with plenty of access, don’t bet the farm on him being there when the season opens. You can be sure other hunters have seen him too. While you shouldn’t over look these convenient places, your pre-season scouting should be focused on giving as many options as possible.
