Practice a lot with your bow. If I could give you just one strategy on where to set up to hunt it would be breaklines. Make it easy on yourself and set up where two different types of cover come together, like where thick pines run into the open hardwoods. Hunt inside and outside of those cover breaks. Don't get real fancy and just enjoy yourself!

"Patience!" Wait for that deer to give you the right shot!

The most important lesson in bow hunting. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The second most important lesson.

It is OK if the deer wins !!!!!!! -If you aren't offered a good shot -PASS - another one will be by in a little bit.

The third most important lesson -

If you make an error in judgment - the deer is the only one who SUFFERS !

How about a few rules - WRITTEN IN STONE

#1 Be SAFE

#2 Have FUN

#3 Be SAFE

#4 Have FUN
