    September 1st here in Washington. I've been out scouting locally, went to were I saw bruiser of a buck last year after the season, and dropped a 30# feed block from Primos... yeah the bears had it completely gone in a week. So I went back out and found some good sign including rubs, picked out a couple trees and left a couple small salt licks off the game trails going by the trees... Now I just wait. That's the hard part... the season may start the first but I can't get out to hunt until the 6th; the next week and 5 days are gonna CRAWL by! LOL

    We need a list of the plain jane that will get the job done. Camo is more inexpensive than it was, but still outrageous in price, considering most is made in 3rd world sweat shops. Camo hat, $12.00 made overseas. Camo hat, $8.00 at the Caterpillar Store on Adams Street, Peoria, Illinois and made in the great state of Washington. Past clothing, there is the multitudes of washing and descenting products to catch the unaware.

    Clothing; Worked 50 years ago and works today, dull clothing. Dull, checked flannel shirts and jackets use to tromp the woods and timber. Some of us wore black and brown face paint for both face and hands. I was wearing a old black ball hat, wore out army jacket and faded blue jeans when I took my first deer. So close was he that there was hair all around my arrow.

    Washing products; For bathing, Ivory soap is hard to beat. For clothing you can't be Arm & Hammer baking soda, just wash and let air dry. I store mine in a thick plastic bag after a shot spray pump of some cover spray, acorn or earth scent.

    Yes, I have camo clothing, most bought by my wife for me. She is a treasure. My main object to cover, my hands and my face. Those el-cheap-o camo cotton gloves do the job. The only thing I do is cut off the index finger so I can feel the trigger of my index release. Face, found this place that had the pulling over camo screen netting on sale. Bought 3, still using the first. Want to use camo clothing, mix them, Mossy Oak with Real Tree. That near bright hardwood crap is good for something, I just don't know what for.

    Lures; 12 to 14" off the ground the scent is picked up by the near constant ground air. Where do deer have their nose? Mostly to the ground. The only time I see them with their nose up in the air to catch the scent of what might be danger. More than a few bucks have come by me looking more like a Beagle on a hot bunny trail....

    Stands; They don't have to be on top of the Empire State building. My tall tree stand seat is not 7 feet off the ground. I just have good cover and I use the thickest tree I can find near game trails or crossing points. A two wide Oak goes a long way of breaking up your outline.

    Bow; My bow is where I can grab it and not reach out to break my outline or make unnecessary movement. Mostly, it's right in my hand. Most of my bow hunting has come after I turned 50 years of age. It amazes me that today healthy "kids" are wimps. My primary hunting bow weighs more than hunting bows today and has a ata of near 38". I don't have trouble packing it near all day and not one problem in the tree stand or stalking. I do my home work to the tune of something of 38 deer in the last 14 years most all of them on our 31 acre farm/home site.

    K.I.S.S. applies to hunting as well.....

    And for hiding hands, I use brown Jerseys
    They are about 50cents/pair here,

    I've killed several deer and 1 turkey wearing dark blue jeans.....
