Greetings big_willy welcome to the deer hunters club.
Also a big Thank You for your service to this great country we live in.
There's really no one secret to successful deer hunting so it's not as easy as saying do this this and this and you'll be all set.
Harvesting your first buck takes time but If you keep in mind what you need to do you can find sucess quickly.
you need to beat the Deers Eyes, his Ears and his nose, Wearing Camo and blending into your backdrop works on a deers eyes,
You also have to keep as quiet as possible (coughing, sneezing etc etc etc, silence is golden)deer have excellent hearing but
if you are keeping quiet you'll do well, and then there's that nose,
Personally I think anyone can beat a deers Eyes and ears but a deer's nose is key to their survival, therefore Scent Control is a must,
making sure you do your very best to descent your equipment as well as yourself.
If you do your best to achieve all 3, the eyes, ears and nose then your putting yourself in the zone for a successful buck harvest.
We have a lot of texas hunters here at the deer hunters club and I'm sure they will chime in to offer tips at the local levels.
Good Luck and don't hesitate to ask specific questions.
