I wrote a novel a number of years ago. There was a discussion in there about using time travel to kill Hitler. The point of the discussion was to prove that, if you want to kill Hitler, you have to rearrange the Universe so that Hitler becomes killable. Then you have to stand back and ask yourself: did I really kill Hitler, or did I kill a parallel universe make-believe quasi Hitler, and in doing so, did I in turn do anything to change the Hitler in the original time line.
How, may you ask, does killing Hitler have anything to do with your question? Let me explain. Let me first off tell you that the easiest way to kill a big buck is to go somewhere that has big bucks, and pay someone for the chance to kill a big one. When you get done, what have you got? A dead deer that you paid a large sum of money to kill. Whether or not that appeals to you is for you to decide. A lot of folks do it. Any dollar you spend changes your hunting universe, whether it is for a new pair of boots or better underwear or a new lease. Now, how has that changed the whatever original goals you had for going deer hunting in the first place? I cannot answer that for you. That is what you have to answer.
Beyond that, I will tell you that any dollar you spend on stuff in order to get a better chance at getting a deer beyond what you have spent is not going to get you much further than you are.
What will get you farther down the road is sweat equity. Think boots on the ground, time spent afield. The short of it is: get out and hunt. When you are not out hunting, spend more time looking for places to hunt. When you find a place to hunt, look at improving the habitat to attract more doe. They will be the bait that brings in the big bucks. In the latter suggestion, do the cheap things first. in 13 years on my 200 acres, I will tell you that the inexpensive things like letting the cedars grow and edge-feathering the pastures have done more to bring in deer than food plots or supplemental feeding.
Mostly, it is time out in the bush that gets you a deer. Your 30-06 is fine. Your bow is probably fine. If you want to burn cash, burn it on more days afield, off-season scouting, and the eternal search for the new piece of land. Any dollar you spend towards those things will pay a dividend.
Here is another thing that will get you down the road. If you spend most of your time in-town, away from your hunting grounds, invest time observing deer close to your house. If there are deer in a local cemetery or county park, go find them and observe them. It will be of immeasurable help later on.
