As the summer ends and you put your rods and reels away, it's time to start thinking about deer hunting. The first season to open is black powder, which opens in mid September. I think that it is still too hot for deer hunting during the black powder season. I like to take time during black powder season to start watching the deer in the area I hunt. I'll find where there has been a large amount of deer activity and put out deer blocks. Some hunters put out corn, but I feel that the wild Turkey take a large portion of the corn. Also during black powder season and during bow season, which opens in November, I'll make sure my gun is shooting properly. Once you start watching the deer in the area you hunt, you want to be careful not to disturb the area. I try not to enter the area in the same place twice. One thing I think helps is the spray's that cover the human scent. During black powder and bow season, you do alot of praying that the deer you have been watching isn't harvested by another hunter in the area you hunt. When high power season opens in mid-December, it is very cold. You make your way to your deer stand at about 6:00 a.m. The temperature is normally around 10 degrees. It feels like a life time waiting for the sun to come up. Your toes start to hurt, because of the cold. After sitting in the stand for hours or even days, the buck you have been watching finally comes into view, your heart starts to race and your forget about your cold toes and fingers. As the buck comes into gun range, you hope that your gun is still sighted in from when you checked it earlier in the season. Now that you are looking at the deer through your scope you know that all the preparation for that moment is hopefully going to pay off. As you prepare to make the shot and pull the trigger, it feels that you are pulling a car with your finger. Finally a crack rings out from your gun. You know you hit your deer and you sit back, relax and reflect on the moment. Tweet
