Lure scents, good calls & persistance may be the key ingredients.
No matter how holed up they stay at some point they're bound to slip up in your favor.. Good Luck To You...

onehorse I hope you get that monster. I have not been able to hang that one big monster buck. Maybe it's the good Lord's way of keeping me in the woods year after year? Close but not, oh well maybe this year.

HuntingMan, I think you hit the nail right on the head, and the good Lord sure does have a sense of humor about it too. Don't you agree?

agreed

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

No question about His humor, especially when I think of the times I've fallen out of trees or into creeks. I had to laugh at myself and I'm sure he was laughing at me.

I'm glad you guys replied to that because If I found out I was the only one that's ever ended up laughing at myself for falling into a brook, or slid down a river bank (making it look like thats how it's supposed to be done) or ever Ran out of deer camp because I saw a Bear through the window then realized I ran out with just my binoc's and no rifle, or that time I over-slept, jumped out of bed got all dressed looked at the Clock and it was still Midnight,,,

Thank you guys for letting me know, it isnt just me!

Man if you've never had the opportunity to laugh at yourself out it the woods, you need to spend more time out there. I can't count the number of times I've done something goofy.

Like the time I found out that rubber boots hold water in as well as they hold water out. First day of muzzle loader and I wanted to cross this narrow spot in the swamp instead of going all the way around. Wind and pressure always coming from that direction. It ended with me sitting on a stump wringing out my sock.

We cannot continue to do the same things and expect different results

I almost missed this conversation. How about the day I shot my biggest buck antelope ever - qualified for SCI. So, I'm really thrilled and striding back to my truck to get it back to the antelope, and suddenly the ground seems to give out under me and my right leg goes down a badger hole all the way to my crotch. Man, did I have to struggle to get out of that one! Maybe, it was a message that I shouldn't have been feeling so cocky about having gotten that buck and paying attention to where I was putting my feet.
