    Default Your Number 1 bowhunting tip

    I will start

    Practice in exactly the same fashion that you hunt.

    IE:

    If your gonna be hunting from a treestand (practice from elevation)
    If your gonna wear a face mask and gloves (practice with both)
    Heavy coat..........you get the idea.


    if you have already posted your No1 you can repost with No2 just try to keep them seperate.

    Baking soda,,,

    Wash your clothes in buck addicts (or your fav scent killn detergent)

    then place them in a plastic tub and sprinkle on the baking soda.

    then another layer of clothes or gear and more BS.

    then shake it up good and let it set.

    When I get dressed all my base layer are sprayed with scent killer.

    then I put on the outerlayers that are dusted heavily with the BS.

    Just be careful around binocs and (booner) camera lens..the BS is very fine and can scratch lenses.

    dont forget boots and hats...but do not use in boots if you are doing alot of walking..it can irritate your feet.

    Might have to try this. Haven't used BS before on my clothes. Thx Rodney

    My top two tips would be:

    1.) PLAY THE WIND!

    2.) Patience/Confidence:

    Although some lucky hunters might fill their tags within the first few days, remember the season are usually much longer. In years past I would get so upset if I didn't have something on the ground by the time the rut is over. Once you get upset you start to question yourself, your locations, you scent control, are you moving too much, are you getting in the stand to late, leaving too early...etc... This will eat at you. Stick to your plan. Stay confident. Not every animal is taken by Nov. 30th!

    SAFETY

    In any walk of life, especially hunting, safety should be number 1.

    Now, this typically won't help you drop that next wall hanger, but it is much better than the alternative. There's my #1 bowhunting tip.

    Use a Lifeline with your safety harness and stay hooked up from the time you leave the ground until you return.

    When you try to stop a deer with a bleet or a MRRRRR

    start off softly and gradually get louder if you have multiple shooting lanes.

    If you have one spot to shoot, then start right off with a louder MRRRRR or bleet.

    and when you have to stop a deer,,,aim at the bottom of the heart,,the deer will try to load up its legs at the sound of the shot and it can drop 10" before the arrow makes it there.

    Might be the most overlooked tip. I'm guilty.

    Prob not a number one tip...but a good one. I place my rattle horns on my pull up string. When I finish a sequence....I drop them to the ground. This does two things.....one, it mimics the sound of horns seperating and leaves rustleing...two, if I have a buck come in that I am trying to get closer i can grab my pull up rope and jiggle the horns to get a little ground level light rattle. When I am ready to rattle again I pull them up and start over.

    most falls occur climbing in and out.

    the lifeline HSS sells should almost be mandatory!! best $35 you can spend.

    Scout! know the your game personally, with trail cams, scouting from a far in your truck or just taking the kids for a walk.

    Know your land, know where they are going to come from know where thay are going to go.

    know your general wind direction so you can pick the right set.

    Use razor sharp broadheads, they will kill quicker and leave a better blood trail. Check blade sharpness before every hunt because they can and will dull from going in and out of the quiver, or from oxidization.
