I agree with Howler...You ain't nothing but a target shooter, if there isn't a deer to shoot at. Might as well practice, practice, practice for the next tourney.

You have got to be the first honest writer I've ever seen on these boards. Most come on as a newbie asking some question like "How should I hunt a corn field?" and in a very short time an article just comes out of no where in one of the rags about hunting a corn field with the author giving his "expert" advice.

I could shoot straight long before I stuck my first deer. What does that tell you?

There is nothing more important in bowHUNTING than scent control and playing the wind. You can do alot of other things wrong and still score. You get scent control wrong and you are definately going home empty handed.

There is nothing more important in bowhunting than safety.

i voted "other" because THE most important thing in bow hunting is practice and shot placement. you can kill a deer with a bent branch and a piece of broken glass, duck tapped to a curtain rod IF you hit him in the right spot.

i think the best thing you can have is or do is PRACTICE. If you don't practice, no matter how good your equimpment is, you will suffer tremendously. With that said, I think while Practice is KING, good equipment sure does help. We read a lot on here about people who swear by there kind of equipment. Well, I say if it works for you, no matter how I may feel about it, then for you that is the best equipment there is....but you must practice.

Heavy Arrows (12-14 grains per pound of draw weight)

Broadheads that have excellent penetration properties and are durable (think 2 blade Phantom's by Muzzy in 225 gr weights)

Accurate shooting by the bowhunter

Those 3 things = success in the woods
