    Default What without a doubt simply works?

    Play the wind, patience, donít move etc etc... all the typical non negotiable tactics of deer hunting. We all know this.

    What I want to know is what do you do year in and year out that you without a doubt know works when youíre deer hunting? What tricks do you Swear by, products, bait, scent, home remedies etc. What are some off the beaten path, not spoken about often, unfamiliar yet sure fire things that bring success each year?

    for me, where I hunt if I put out any amount of RED only apples during the season, I will have deer show up there within 1-3 days tops!!

    whatís your trick?

    I'd say not letting yourself get mentally worn down. It's easy enough to get into a negative frame of mind if things haven't been going your way. What works for me is to maintain the belief that as long as you're hunting where there are deer that anything can happen at just about any moment, usually when you're least expecting it to.

    Keeping a positive outlook. Sounds corny, but it can make the difference between being ready when your chance arrives or getting caught of guard and blowing that chance.

    #1 for me is Mobile Treestand Hunting. I rarely sit in the same tree twice over the course of the 3 month bow season. I'm able to watch patterns and move-in accordingly. I never burn-out a spot by over hunting it. I can sit somewhere fresh on every sit based on the wind and access. It's more work, but definitely worth it if you spend a lot of time in the deer woods

    Lots of still hunting in the key areas you expect to find deer..... So field edges during the morning/late afternoon and deeper in the bush during the day. Like it was mentioned, keep it simple, watch the wind, move slowly, always looking ahead and through the trees, bush or corn rows.

    ^^^^^^ This!! ^^^^^ The problem is that's easier said than done,especially,when hunting Crown or public land.

    patience is #1
    comfort is #2 if your not comfortable youll be moving alot trying to get comfortable and can't concentrate on hunting. keep the phone away.

    Play the wind, dont burn out a spot and get to your stand at least 1hr before sunrise.

    Hunt where the signs tells you to hunt dont just pick any old deer trail and hope for the best. Knowledge of what signs to hunt and when is important.

    Those are my success tips.

    I've learned a few things over the years that have made me a better deer hunter. In no particular order, here are some tips: Read whatever you can about deer and deer hunting. Pay attention to what successful hunters are doing. Old timers aren't necessarily the best hunters, be objective. Go into the woods properly equipped for a period longer than you intend to be out. Have a plan but be flexible. Don't leave a stand too early. Don't over-hunt your stand; have alternative stand sites. Try to hunt all day; bring a lunch. Be familiar with the general area --> know how deer use the area. Know where other hunters are likely to be. Get away from the crowds but don't overlook those small woodlots next to the road. Try calling and rattling, but don't overdo it. If you see a deer that you don't intend to shoot, remain quiet and leave it alone; you never know what might be following.

    Simple! Hunt where the deer are. If there is no sign, don't waste your time.
