We were told since kids that perfect practice makes perfect.
Although true, equipment is an important factor. There is a constant change in technology that allows hunting and all equipment to be better and to allow errors to not be as bad down range.
Look at typical clothing, hunting clothing is more technologically advanced than what grandpa/ma wore.
Maybe it’s time to upgrade?
Thank you to all the men and women that served and continue to serve the great U.S.A.
You must begin to think of yourself as becoming the person you want to be.

See the attached link from Mossy Oak about deer stand approach.
I know as a kid walking to my stand, I learned a quick lesson on foot placement. I stepped on a twig, it snapped, and the white flags of a deers tail went up. Five deer approximately 35-40 yards away bound into the abiss of the deer woods to never being seen again.
Great article on clearing you deer path to your stand below.
Arrow fletching is the controlling arm of your arrow. When the right fletching is used, it can optimize arrow and point/broadhead accuracy.
Here is a good article on arrow fletching and bias head accuracy.
Enjoy this article, your family and friends. Respect those in need.
Do you marinate your meat?
I don’t necessarily marinate meat as much as I use to. I typically use injections when I smoke brisket, turkey, pork shoulders, etc. I also use an herbed butter when I roast a turkey. But I never truly marinate meat.
I am heavy on the salt when it comes to red meats. I like to make a herbed salt and lay it on thick. It forms a nice crust and enhances flavor.
The link below is a great article on the myths of marinating.
It’s all about family, food and the outdoors.
Tuning your broadheads is just as important as shooting 10′s.
You can fine tune your arrow rest shooting field points and broadheads at the same time.
See this awesome post.
Here is an interesting read on photoperiod being the trigger to the deer rut.
Deer rut trigger
The interesting part of this read is…that year in and year out, the rut is fairly consistent.
That makes it a little more simple on planning your vacation time but does not put venison in the freezer.
Enjoy and get outside and let the arrows fly.
