Question Things you notice in the deer woods?

Red Fox urine is a good cover scent but when I used Skunk cover scent I never saw any deer. What you think about that? Do you think deer shy away from an area if your put a little tab of skunk essence behind your ears???



Dirt and leaves in my coffee taste dam good... Figure I was way before my time when I took in a thermos of black coffee.. Now they sale hazlenut, pumpkin, VANELLLLLLLER, White Oak leaf taste darn good in the deer woods..

What should a deer hunter eat in the morning prior to a walk in. Pancakes give very little energy.. You need protein... However remember what happens half way in if that protein be greasy? Stay away from prunes the night before to... Remember don't even worry "If One is Enough Or if Two is to many!" Your suppose to be watching out for deer not whooping your breeches...


Any thing you would like to add to help a deer hunter out in the woods?

When I'm at camp on my own I like oatmeal for breakfast.

Always remember your toilet paper!

I know a guy who takes a half dozen apples in with him to eat through out the day and just tosses the cores from his tree stand, I told him that may be considered baiting.....He just grinned....hmmm

Careful, guy in the other thread was talking about baiting and Uncle told him to quit playing with the bird.

Deer aren't spooked by cigar smoke.
They aren't spooked by the gut pile of one shot an hour or day earlier. (In fact, they'll come right to it and paw at it.)
Deer step into view 3 seconds after your bladder tells you it's time.
You'll see the biggest bucks of the year walk by you during October Muzzleloader.
Do not share a blind with someone that eats nearly a dozen eggs a day.

Most comfortable places from which to ground hunt never have a field of view beyond 20 yards.

Watching the sunrise makes you forget how warm your bed was when the alarm went off!

Odds of seeing a Booner exponentially skyrocket the instant you put your tag on a buck.

Geese fly low when you're on deer stand, they fly high when you're laying on your back in a muddy cut corn field.

Squirrels everywhere until you're hunting for squirrels.

You get to your stand an hour before daylight so not to spook the deer then at first light 3 guys walk by and ask if you have seen anything.
About 9 am you start to shake from the cold then you see your first deer of the day and you forget its 28 degrees.
Most deer you see are between daylight and 9 am.
Most deer you have shot were between 10 am and 2 pm.
Have your wife plan an event that you have to attend at 1 pm and you'll shoot a deer at noon.
Don't pack a sandwich. You'll jinks yourself and probably eat it an hour after being on stand.
Nothing like taking a young hunter out and watching him/her sleep up against a big oak after being on stand 30 minutes.
Nothing like taking a young hunter out and kicking them to wake up when you see a legal deer.
Nothing like taking a young hunter out and saying you get first shot and watching the biggest buck you have ever seen walk out of sight just because the young hunter couldn't find it in the scope.

Deer always make their trails from the base of one straight tree to the next string of straight trees leaving only unclimbable trees anywhere in bow range, only providing less than desirable shots and increasing their chances of picking out the hunters scent at the base of the tree stand.

Grouse only flush close by leaving a wide open shot only when one is crossing a barbwire fence.

Big bucks alway stop directly behind a doe with only their antlers visible over the doe's back.

It always snows or rains the hardest just when an excited hunter has waited a reasonable amount of time to follow up on a blood trail.

Ducks only fly into a marsh blind 30 seconds after shooting time is over.

Be careful an elf will take you best hunting knife and hide it after you have field dress your deer.
