Now that deer season is over : [Frown] : , what have you learned/experienced that you will do differently next year? Are you going to make a change in equipment (bow, broadhead,etc.), method of hunting,(ground vs tree ) or what? I always try to reflect back and learn from my messups. One of my problems was not practicing enough during hunting season. My form (or lack of it) cost me a nice buck. After my mmmmiss, I took my old 3-d deer target and placed it in the woods where I park my truck to go hunting. Just a few minutes each day shooting in a realist setting at a 3-d deer target before going hunting was a big help. What about you? What are you going to do different?

I learned that hunting in the cold, snow or rain was easier @ 30 than it is at 51. Not sure if I'm getting softer or smarter.

Do more off season sight prep. After frost use camo with a lot of light background, (Predator ASAT etc) A heck of a lot about general deer movement on my property I was totally unaware of. (Good snow cover helps)

I learned that Blacktail deer read the WA hunting regulations to find out exactly when legal shooting hours ended. I also learned that if you use a wounded rabbit call you better be ready for what ever answers when you are still stalking.

Definitely practice wearing ALL the clothes and gloves etc. that you will be wearing when that deer presents itself-missed a nice one this year as a result I believe of not doing just that! [banghead]

I learned that I have to get up earlier than I thought because it always takes longer to put on my boots than I remembered and it's a longer time to reach the woods. I enjoyed the hunting but felt the deer were way trained before I got there at all. Good place to hunt but really needed a tree stand, but decided to ground hunt, but, but butt! If I had less butt a tree stand might be possible. Had fun anyway, and at least I saw a good one!

I learned that some people will break the law just to kill a deer. I actually already knew this, just had it happen on the property that I hunt. Has brought about alot of static between me and another guy.
