What's up deerhunter81 and welcome to the site. You came to the right spot for tips and advice. Greetings from a fellow New Yorker. My first tip for you is SCENT CONTROL, CONTROLYOUR HUMAN SCENT BECAUSE TO ANY GAME ANIMAL WE HUMANS SMELL LIKE, WELL, YOU KNOW. GOOD LUCK.

yes i agree the most important thing to keep in mind is scent........ i would go to your local sporting goods store or wherever it is that you go to get your hunting needs and buy just about everything they have for scent control... read the directions on the scents you buy believe it or not the they are there for a reason.
next is your location? where and what kind of terrain are you hunting? until i know i have no further input. send me a message with that info and ill help you out the best i can.

ive been to that one its huge.a fellow could go broke in a place like that.

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

ok what i would do is walk the perimeter of the woods/field and look for deer sign.if there are corners that would be a good spot to start if you go with a buddy one can walk in the woods 50 yrds deep and the other walks the edge just outside the woods.walk together wear orange if you kick up a deer one of you should be able to get a shot off .the other option is to set up on the spots where you find the sign.I would bet 20$ that theres got to be a trail winding thru the woods to the corner of the field i would post 30-50 off that trail with a good shooting lane.bring warm cloths some thing to sit on and a thermos of something warm and food and sit there all day with your binnoculars scanning.you should see does moving at first light and 1 hr before sunset the bucks will follow the does.dont leave at lunch time .deer are hip to that and will get up and walk around from 12-2 then rest again.now you've got a plan go use it and post a pic of your deer.

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