Wow! Great deal Tracer!

I will start this off, I'll start by saying I don't consider myself an expert and I learn something new every year. When I started big game hunting we shot any deer that we saw. But as the years passed, we stopped shooting does & it is amazing how many bucks we are seeing now.

So my tip is "Let the does pass if you want to shoot a buck"

Hi Guys,

My tip is aimed at Bowhunters but does apply to gun hunters as well.

Practice in your hunting clothes and gear. Too many guys shoot all summer but fail to remember that when November and December rolls around they won't be shooting in shorts, T-shirts and flip flops. Wearing a bulky jacket, gloves and a face mack can shorten your draw or change your anchor point which can lead to a heartbreaking miss.

Great tips guys, thanks for your submissions. Here's another tip:
A cheap way to tell the wind direction while hunting.
Attach a piece of sewing thread to the muzzle end of your rifle, just behind the front sight. The thread should be a bright color and hang down 8-10". A glance at the thread easily indicates the direction of the slightest breeze and whether or not you are in danger of having your scent alert your prey.
Another trick for the use of sewing thread, is to lay out a line right through the area you think the deer are travelling in. Hang it about 2ft off the ground and secure it to trees. It is almost invisible and the deer just break it as they walk through. Nobody will know it's there except you. Repair the breaks and very quickly you will pattern the deer. Buy a large black spool at Walmart in the sewing supplies section. *


* Relax, I'm not eligible for this contest. I just thought I'd share.

Pour a bag of bird seed a few yards from your treestand. Birds will visit all day long and may give away the presence of an intruding deer. Use birds and squirrels to your advantage.
