I learned your season can turn around quickly when you do as others have often suggested and stayed on the stand long after most guys have gone back to camp.

This was my second year hunting our new lease. After the first year, you change your set up for the better for the second year, and hunt harder the second year. After this second year, I've learned more of the deer patterns during different times of the season. Certain areas hold more deer near the bedding areas early on in the season, then shift to a different area of our lease. Once rut hits, there is definitely areas that have better buck traffic than others. I plan to hunt these areas during right time on my 3rd year!

By hunting with my daughter this season, I learned why my dad always spent so much time hunting with me. It's the greatest thing and puts a whole new perspective on hunting.

That if you take a new light bulb and put it in the light socket in the walk-in cooler that about a dozen guys off of 4 different leased pastures have been struggling with head lamps, truck headlights, leaving the door open, etc. in, for two seasons, and turn the switch on...there is light.

It's not a good feeling when you think you lost your wallet...
Then you find it under your chair in the stand...
So you go ahead and burn a tag... aim

That prep for next season needs to begin NOW. I got behind this year and kept thinking I'd get everything done, but never did.

If you park your truck facing the direction of your feeder, the Deer "Blow & Go", but if you turn it around they look in that direction once and ignor it. (My truck is parked 250-300 yards around the corner of the woods.) LOL...redneck experiment to prove it to myself. Pretty funny until you realize the way you parked spooked the deer.

Nice bucks don't just show up during the rut. After the rut and after the fair-weather hunters have gone home to watch football, the big guys are focused on bulking up for the winter and can get a little careless.

Don't pass on one of the only two shooters you see because it's at your uncles feeder! He was more upset with me for not shooting it. He had missed him the day before. It felt wrong taking it from him. We never seen the deer again. think I seen him on here taken in Jack county. Our loss. There is always next year.

Second thing is don't get out of the blind until the hunt is over. Had two pigs down, got out with 10 min left to find the second pig, looked up and a buck was following a doe at 160 yards walking right to my feeder. That was this Saturday with two days left. Only seen two mature legal deer all season.
