I always hunt alone. Unless I am guiding a client-hunter.

Me , Myself and I. I am the only person allowed on my property. Hunting partners tend to mess things up.

I often hunt alone, but I also hunt with my neighbor and his boy some. I enjoy being able to get on the radio and chat a bit, get deer movement reports, etc....it helps pass the time. I know that is not the most stealthy, but sharing the experience is part of the alure for me.

Isn't the desire to share our hunting experiences one of the reason so many are on this site?

Alone, I kinda like it that way. When my dad was alive he was always out there but he had to stay close to the car because of health reasons.

On the private land I hunt I see my former neighbors so that makes my wife happier knowing someone is in the area that knows me. I may only see them once in a season though. It is easier dragging/loading a deer with 2 guys instead of one but that's one of the few positives about hunting with someone else.

At times I wish I had someone else to go with to possibly open up new areas, but I've done all right alone the last 11 years.

I did take a freind (new hunter) with me the year my dad died (1999) and got to listen to him whine about not seeing anything, but he passed up 2 does that walked right by him. He thought he was going to see herds of monster deer and was disappointed. That was the last time I've actually went with anyone.

I hunt alone 95% of the time. That is part of the reason I hunt; to get away from people.

I hunt with my BIL sometimes but I don't like someone else trying to dictate my schedule. He has learned over the years if he wants to go in early, just go, and don't tell me about it.

I like taking my kids out, but their attention span is short, so I'm happy if we just see deer. They still aren't to the point that they want to pull the trigger.

While I will more than happily take any kid hunting anytime, I normally hunt alone and prefer it. Less noise, less movement, and less smell to have to contend with. I also enjoy the solitude, it gives me time to reflect and think.

There is a reason that it is against the law for you to hunt away from VOICE AND EYE SIGHT of a person 18yrs or older.
the reason for the law is, safety for you and others in the woods.
