What will you do to increase your odds this hunting season?

I have added a ladder stand and I will have a blind. Giving me more opportunity and better odds. Also I will be out and about a lot more.

Hope to get to hunt more this season. I tore a rotator cuff last year and it put a damper on my hunting and pulling my bow.But I am fixed (somewhat) now. ;)

I'll be using my Portable Trekking pole, groundblind. My Scent sticks, I'll be hunting the first day but have to take the first Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday off. I was called up to help teach Hunter's Education. The kids and adult Beginner Hunters come first.

I was successful in our Doe draw:Dthat gives me a little more of a chance.Gonna try turnip for bait,and try to hold off on the apples till the bears are hopefully gone:rolleyes:2 more cameras on the way to put out in different locations to help with scouting.And hopefully we don't have the crazy wind and rain like last year.

Scouting again on Monday and bought camo gear. I got them at the army surplus. I can't believe how that stuff totally blends in at 30yards!

Can't do it here in full camo, where I practice people would probably call the cops on me. Don't know if they would think 'Rambo' or 'Terrorist' or just evil hunter. Sad really... :(

I am leaving the box stand this year. I am making a ground blind farther in the woods and I also bought a climbing stand so that I can be more maneuverable. I am also ging to be shooting earlier as I now have the Onza so hopefully will get out there before they go nocturnal. I also picked up another stand on a a pipeline that has had a lot of deer killed at it.

Well, I guess 1 thing I will not be using to increase my odds of venison in the freezer, a doe tag. Thanks NYS I guess I can start saving my preference points again.
