Scent control.
Accuracy is a close second.

It may be one thing or several. The One Thing would be attend to the very basics. The subheadings under that would be: be still, be quiet, put in the time in the woods and practice your shooting beforehand.

All the other stuff is very, very secondary. Just MHO!

There are a lot of things that go into a successful hunt and even more that goes into being successful year after year. But none of it means a lick if you don't put the time in the woods necessary to find the animal you are looking for. You can have the best scent control, best cammo, be able to move without sound ad be able to shoot the wing off a fly at 1000 yds but it don't mean a thing if you don't invest the time actually being in the woods. The more time you spend in the woods the better hunter you'll be. Because not only are you finding more game but ever encounter with game and game sign only hones your skills more and more. But then again I hunt out West in the Rockies. I don't what it's like hunting over a corn feeder.

For me it's knowing my limitations first! I guess I could see the Ole' 30 pointer and have a perfect shot and not be able to capitalize would suck! Know your weapons of choice! Good luck everybody and enjoy it!
As well as all of the above! Practice!
Excellent post!

#1 thing- determination and self confidence. gotta have the confidence in your self. if you say that you can put the arrow in the 10 ring, you're gonna do it. if you think you're going to miss, chances are, you're gonna make a bad shot. also, as far as gunning for big whitetails, its A: Luck and B:Location. The guys who shoot big bucks consistently have the right location. everybody shoots a decent buck once or twice. it takes a helluva hunter to kill 150"+'s every year.
