Well first if not on your own land Be Sure & secure
land owner permission!!. Then scout the area only enough to learn EVERYTHING!!! about that BUCK you can!!!! "BUT from a distance"
with either a good set of binouclars or a nice spotting scope & a good scent of some sort. (DO NOT OVER PRESSURE THAT
BUCK) or you may as well say goodbye to him before the season opens or during. Finally, make sure to limit the trips you make
into the woods to no more than mabye three or four , spaced by a few at least say 5 days apart etc. Figuring one
trip for setting up treestand , groundblind,etc. And three for checking scrapes / fresh sign. That should provide enough opportunity
to gather as much info on the targeted animal & area that you need. Limiting and spacing your trips in this manner typically
is enough to keep the deer off balance, so they don't pattern You , even if they pick you up. I Also always wear a pair of
rubber boots or sneakers depending on the season & weather & I alway's apply a scent of some sort, I personally make
up my own scent. Which I use during the hunting season as well. Its $(Cheap)$ = Free & simple to make & works great!.
However there are several scents you can purchase out there, that are very good & will do the trick. Again another thing
to remember that helps greatly, is getting a map of the area your hunting via. your computer, store, etc. & become as
familar with every foodplot, acorn ridge, various watering sources, that a deer will use when under pressure & not under
heavy pressure as well, like during Bow season. I Usually set & climb a stand during the summer, early autumn, Camera,
camcorder in hand. Mine is a Digital Camera/DVD corder, I film & watch a buck I've spotted & just let him show me
what he does, How he travels, where he beds, comfort zones, etc.,And he usually will show me about where I need consider hanging
a stand or two. So If you see the buck of your dreams cross your path & you really want a realistic "shot" at taking him
. Following these few important guidelines has made me successful, time after time on many occassions, & on many Bucks
& deer overall. I am sure it can work for you as well.
Until Next Time May You have
A Great Safe Hunt!!!
May You Bag The Deer Of
