    Everything has to be in writing. If something is agreed to and not in writing then it doesn’t exist.

    My opinion is the morning move is usually very brief and the late movement has a window of a couple hours or more on the right day. Plus the guys that have been hunting hard all season are tired of getting up early.

    I’m praying for you.

    I’m sure the dogs will get a good home.

    They can make a lot more sounds than most of realize. I have not heard that sound but the first buck I got with my bow was making a clicking sound like when you click your tongue. I’ve never heard it since.

    The funny thing is I knew what it was from a field and stream youtube on deer sounds and I have never seen or heard anyone else talking about that sound.

    That first year I kept fine tuning my sights, during winter I had a bag hanging in my garage and a string hanging to shoot at from 6 yards. It helped, and I was scared to miss so I always had my bow directed at the bag during my draw. A good habit.

    I have it. I find it valuable. The county plat books are updated every two years and cost about $25 for one county, with this you have the state.

    Define not steady, at what distance are you shooting and how far at your shots wandering?

    Someone to show you the ropes.
    What is your setup? Your equipment needs to be right but it doesn’t need to be high end.

    You can do this cheap and effective.

    Since you have a bow I will assume your arrows, sight quiver, etc are all a good fit for hunting. Then you need broadheads, everybody has a favorite but some choices should depend on your setup.

    In 2007 I bought a Walmart Pearson bow. (I was 52) I started off on the ground sitting on a 5 gallon bucket that I had spray painted brown and gray. In the bucket I had camo burlap, clothes pins and a pair of clippers to cut off the tops of the weeds and branches. I bought a ladder stand that season too but split my time between the two. I liked both, I learned more on how and where to set up from ground hunting and more about deer behavior from the tree. One thing I really gained was confidence in ground hunting.

    Don’t forget you need a knife and a way to split the pelvis. I had a big fixed blade buck knife and had to beat on that to split the pelvis. A saw is MUCH easier.

    I learned a lot of valuable information that way so I would suggest that as a way to start your hunting. One improvement would be to add a leafy suit, they are pretty cheap.

    Nice deer! I’m a senior too, but still a ways behind you. I’m guessing from the entry point you are still hunting out of a treestand?

    Some act like that and then complain they have difficulty at their “stops and don’t get many tips about poachers.
