I truly love deer hunting. I love every aspect, from early Spring putting out minerals and cameras, hanging stands, to the end result of harvest. I don't have the best places to hunt, but I try to make the best of what I have. I get some nice bucks on cameras each year, but rarely kill one of them. Deer are there, but my places are travel routes, mostly open, nothing that holds deer. Not complaining, the opportunity is there. Just have to be there when the time is right, that's hunting. I have come to the point where I don't bow hunt unless I have a good buck slipping up during daylight, and the wind is right. Camera checks totally dictate my hunts in bow season. That being said, all that goes out the window at the end of October. Wind is only factor from then on. I've only been in a tree twice this year. Part of that is due to elk, but part of that is waiting, and not wanting to mess up antler opportunity, and not messing it up. I miss tree time. I will kill at least two deer this year, but I will kill much less time in a tree than I used to.
