What are the 5 biggest hunting myths?
 
I am teaching a hunting/shooting class later this month at my churches annual men's advance and I thought I would tackle some hunting myths, so what would you guys say the top five hunting myths be?

That you can determine the sex of a deer based on if its crap is held together in a ball or loose pellets.

Or if the dew claws touch the ground or not on a track. WCL

That you have to have a big caliber rifle to kill a deer.
That "scent proof" stuff works 100%.
That just because somebody else legally hunts different from your style that it is unethical.

That it's okay to be in the record books with a Governors tag!

The wind is not that important if you wear scentlock!

Cover scents don't work!

You can't kill the good ones in the middle of the day.

Topdawg woof woof is not gay and has all of our respect!:D

I'm not saying they can't see blaze orange. All I'm saying, is I've been within inches of buck deer and within a few feet of elk wearing a total orange jacket and hat, and they didn't act like they saw the blaze orange. It sure didn't spook them.

I do agree about the scent lock!:D

1. Deer avoid other deer's gutpiles.

2. You can tell the age of a deer by it's antlers (points).

3. There are better looking guys than me that hunt deer.
