From opening morning to the frigid finale, there are plenty of ways to screw up a perfectly good deer season. Don’t let one of these 22 miscues get the best of you and your tag
Are you the guy or gal who always has a reason why you missed, spooked a buck, didn’t hunt, or otherwise failed to fill your tag? Don’t be. We give you 22 reasons why this will be a deer season when you won’t need an excuse.
π You’d almost forgotten last deer season, hadn’t you? Then a few weeks ago, your buddy got his shoulder mount back from the taxidermist and was texting you trail camera photos of all the good bucks under his stands. Looks like he’s in for another awesome year. But all of his bragging reopened the old wounds from last November. Now you have flashbacks of bucks snorting in the distance and dreams of arrows stuck in trees. Those haunting words from your cousin—“i don’t see no blood”—are stuck in your head like the lyrics to a bad pop country tune. Spend more than a weekend in the deer woods and you’re bound to screw up a few opportunities. You can make excuses and then repeat the mistakes this year. Or you can learn from them. We're going to help you have a season without excuses, because we’re facing them down right here and now.
