Patience

June 19, 2018 by Mike

There are lots of suggestions from other hunters about gear and techniques.  Techniques fascinate me  because I don't have to find any other gear to make them work.  I use techniques with the gear I already have.  

Time and time again I've learned patience helps me kill bucks.  Failing at this technique is almost funny.  Here is a vignette about turkey hunting, but it could have easily been a deer.  

I was hunting all morning long in a ground blind.  I did everything right like: set up at dark, listened to turkeys come down from the roost and call, played coy with the call.  It was 11:00 a.m., and I wanted to go home.  A hill called to me for a check just forty yards away.  You probably can predict what happened.  I got over to the hill, and a great big tom mosey through my blind set up.  The tom was ten yards from the tree I'd sat against all morning.  I should have finished my hunt in the blind.  I tried to sneak on the bird, but I spooked him.  Patience.
