    hello I like to hunt, ski, build things out of wood, shoot and play with my grandkids. I'm not the best of hunters but not from the lack of trying. I do like long walks in the woods though. Which is what most of my hunting consists of.

    mipjohn - Welcome to NWF. Just a tip about walking in the woods and hunting and this might not be your cup of tee but - Over the years I have found animals like to be around water so once the leaves start to fall, I like to find those damp seepage's usually about midway up the mountain and in a crevasse. If it is still the dry season everything will be green there. From a distance, sit down and maybe later have your lunch, but keep a watchful eye [Using Your Binoculars] try to see the ground around the area for game. Look for signs of a trail then follow it. If you remain patience and skilfully hidden, should you see a doe usually within a few minutes, days or weeks a grand buck will show himself to you.
