    Question What will you do different in bow hunting this year?

    What will you do different in bow hunting this year? I am going to have more stands this year and a blind. A few more places to move around and not have to stay in the same place.

    since my stands were stolen last season and are not likely going to be available to replace them,im going to hunt from brush blinds and do alot of spot-n-stalk through the swamps,creekbottoms and cornfields. If I do get relacement stands I'm going to wire 220v direct as a theft deterrant and maybe some Rambo style boobie traps to further help matters.

    Add more tree stands and put the wife's tri-pod to work - found a new areas in the pasture deer have been using - Man, saplings tore up and deer trails like a hog wallow. I'll get some pics....

    Spend more time on stand this year. And, harvest a doe (attempt to); I passed on several last year waiting for those darn antlers. Never got a shot at a mature buck, serves me right.

    Default What am I going to do differently??? how bout just...

    HUNT..... as I have not been able to hunt for the last 4 years. I am going to go this year if it kills me, I'd rather it be the deer and turkeys that die instead of me though. LOL Maybe I might try a tree stand this time out or a ground blind. I have never used either. I am a spot and stalker. Always have been I guess always will be.

    hey,Bro. You can't eat the rack! I absolutely love shooting big mature does. Ya know. The nosy ones that alert every deer in the woods. I'd rather shoot those than bucks. It's more satisfying for me and a bigger challenge. I've got my share of bone though. My biggest is a 3 1/2yr old 11pt.

    I feel stupid for passing up the bucks. That's all I usually see. Spikes on up to 12pt. The 11pt was the biggest in range so far but have had bigger that I couldn't call in. It's a real treat to get a bruiser doe in range. Michigan cornfields nestled in oaks intermingled w swamps and creekbottoms. I love it
