can you move the feeder?if so move it so it takes them longer to do all that travelling. ie;bring it closer to you

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

Not really, theres not anyother good places to put it closer to me. But im thinking about seting up in the first clearing they come to before they get to the tank, and mybe catch them on the trip back to where they are beding down at.

What am I doing wrong

Hello fellow hunters. I have been deer hunting about 5 years now, I started after losing my leg in a hit and run motorcycle accident. The first year I killed a doe drive hunting with dogs (shotgun), the second and third years I killed quite a few stalk hunting (rifle), even my first 7 pointer but the last couple of years it has been extremely slow.

Let me get to the point: I'm a smoker, I try not to smoke in the woods but I have been smoking a deer come 20 ft away. I have parked my 4 wheeler 10 feet away and killed deer, but lately I try to do everything (scent, not smoking, etc) and NOTHING... There are so many versions of the right thing to do...any suggestions?

The size of the poop pile does not tell you how big the animal is but it can tell you if they are getting enough food or if they have mal-nutrition.

When I go hunting I am gone for the WHOLE day.
Hunting is not a sport it's a tradition.
