Good Morning, I want to preface this rant with a brief history. I have been hunting or attempting to hunt for this will be the start of my 4th year (1 - Shotgun 3- Archery) all of which have been blank. My previous experiences hunting have not been successful and sometimes down right crappy. My 1st yr shotgun hunting I had two does coming towards me when they decided to walk back into the standing corn they came from to only be shot by another hunter after legal shooting light. The following year was my first year archery hunting and before any one flames me I do shoot a xbow but that is due to a football injury to my shoulder making holding full draw nerve wracking if my shoulder is going to stay in the socket or not- I digress... but as I was sitting there in my natural ground blind here comes a nice 6 pointer and as I put the cross hairs on him my neighbor slams his horse gate and the last I saw of that buck was a white tail. The other year I didn't see a deer during shooting light- I got skirted at 6am well before I could see let alone shoot. I have sat in the rain, snow, freezing cold -15F wee hours of the morning to 1.5 hrs after sunset. <br><br>Fast forward to this 2015 season- In my area in Ohio it is difficult to find land to hunt let alone the boss allowing me out of the house to spend time in the tree or a blind. I have sat opening morning on a piece of property that looks like a major highway with several intersecting trails and 1 decent rub. I have located my stand by a creek and the main trail in a valley. I might have heard a deer just before shooting light up the hill up by my ground blind which is located on the main trail where it splits off into several other trails. The only wildlife I saw was a couple of squirrels, chipmunks and a skunk that scared the hell out of me. The next day the property owner sent me a text that they were in their property with a 4 wheeler cutting trails and clearing some area of brush so they can survey for where they are going to build their house. As the owner was riding at the top of the hill he spooked a doe (@1050am) and she ran all the way down to right in front of my stand (which I was not in). They said it was a pretty big doe too and he didn't say if she was milling about or bedded down. Last night I went out and sat in my blind up on the hill in hopes that a deer was going to pass by and go down towards the freshly picked field. But you guessed it No Dice! <br><br>When it comes to scent control I do the best I can with what I have. I hunt in a charcoal lined NBC suit, I use scent free baby shampoo and soaps, I use scent free deodorant. All clothing under the NBC suit have been washed scent free and hung outside for 2 weeks including my towel I use to dry off. I stay away from garlic, onions and other strong foods the day before hunting. I guess I am grasping at straws. I hunt not only to be in the woods which I enjoy but to put meat in my freezer. My only exception is to at least see a deer and if it is just out of shooting range them at least I know I have done my part it is just a matter of time before they walk by me. Any ideas or mindset tactics that I need to do differently?
