Always try to stay downwind and no matter how slow and boring it was yesterday, get up and go again. It only takes a few seconds to become the hunt of a lifetime.
Well said! Scout! Scout! Scout!

Scout out all your possible areas to hunt before season. Find the best feeding areas and trails, then look for the best tree.

Never heard that minerals were considered bait in any state. Bait is classified as food; i.e. apples, acorns, corn, etc.

By all means, check your states hunting regulations first.

Good luck, and enjoy the hunt.

I'm not sure I just briefly read that and sounded like baiting, thats why I said that. In IL I won't use anything like that just in case.

Anything, including minerals, salt licks, etc. are illegal in NYS. Food plots are not, it seems it has to be planted and growing to be legal here. I don't know about other States.

Put on a cover scent, go to the woods & stand still & be quite, sounds like you got everything else covered...............Good Luck.

Public land huh? I would walk trails and maybe find a clearing to sit. I wouldn't put up stands, blinds, or bait as I wouldn't want the worry going out to find someone else using my things or worse finding my things gone..

Had that happen. Go to my tree stand and the thing was gone! Also had tree cameras get stolen too.
