So I want to start a thread and let everyone share some mistakes they've made over the years to help some of the new guys out on here. The biggest reason I'm starting this thread is bc I'm seeing MORE & MORE people starting to show back up and the trail cam pics are rolling. (Good thing!) BUT..... I notice a lot of people that have decent to great deer on camera and they're in there checking it several times a week or weekly. As a young hunter I blew two 160"+ deer off my property bc I was SOOO excited to check the camera and get pics of them. Turning them into nocturnal animals first and shortly after running them off the property. Deer this time of year will take a little pressure but they wont take it long without becoming completely nocturnal. My only reasoning for bringing this up is to help...... Getting pictures are great but is it worth blowing that deer out and never getting a shot at him. Pics don't taste as good as venison so check with caution! What are some other mistakes people have made over the years that could help refresh our minds?
