for me it's just the total amount of time i've spent on my recent hunting tract. I'm in my 4th year on our present acreage and I'm just now getting the lay of the land. Wasted time hunting field edges, great sign, and waterholes. Eventually, I took the time to figure out where the does bed (and their travel routes) and...wouldn't you know it... I started seeing the big bucks, too. Just stick with the basics and "get to know your deer".

Exactly, vam. I once read many years ago that the main thing that causes deer hunters to be unsuccessful is because,
 
"We are part time hunters, hunting full time deer!"
Hunt Hard,

Kill Swiftly,

Waste Nothing,

Offer No Apologies.....
