Thats a good point. I would hope that people would make sure of their targets and wouldnt shoot at a bush, but its entirely possible. I dont think Texas requires that we wear the orange though. I didnt really plan on using the ghillie anyway, there are plenty of blinds where I'm going so I wont have to creep.

Like the quote..... My feelings also

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

i know that a lot of predator hunters use ghili suits.from what i understand you weave em yourself so you could weave some orange into it i guess.i wear a leafy bug suit that looks like a bush but i wear an orange hat while moving and during bow season only

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.

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

LA, I'll probably be stalking, since I don't own a stand, but that's what I am better at, and prefer as well. I don't think its hunting, unless your.....well hunting. not that there is anything wrong with sitting in a stand or blind. just my prefrence. I was thinking water source should get me something for sure, but I don't know. I reckon everything needs water. I figure to camp for maybe three days, unless my luck is just that good. using bolt action 30-06, remington 710. 3-9X40 bushnell. came with it, but its accurate as heck, as am I, and one thing the Corps taught me was never shoot unless your going to kill your target. One shot, One kill. so as long as i dont smoke, and keep the wind in my face, move slow, and dont make a lot of noise, (as i was trained in hunting man) i should be ok then?

pretty sure you'll do fine

Yeah, the mechanics of stalking deer are pretty much the same as stalking the bad guys. Don't silhouette yourself on a hilltop, watch the wind, ect.

I know several hunters whose preferred tactic is to slip along a creek, slough, or an elevated bank in the swamps. Just can't do it everywhere, though. Too many hunters in Louisiana.
