Be smart, your opportunity awaits

Earlier this fall I warned hunters about educating deer.

Don’t start now. Don’t you dare start now.

Now is the time of year when some hunters get sloppy. We’ve all had those moments where “I don’t need to spray down my boots,” or “I won’t worry about the wind today.”

What are you doing? Chances are you have put some time into the season, and maybe you’ve learned a few things. Maybe you have figured travel routes, or better yet, you’ve seen a good buck on his feet. Don’t blow it now!

The No. 1 mistake hunters make is overhunting one area. They go to one stand night after night after night and can’t figure out why they haven’t seen as many deer lately. Ah, hello? McFly? Chances are the deer have patterned you.

There comes a time in a season where you have to give a particular spot a rest. Mix it up. You have another spot, so go check it out. Use your trail cameras and let them do some of the work for you.

And when the time is right, and you’ve let that sweet spot relax a bit, sneak in and wait for that magic moment. You’ll be glad you played it smart.
