    Default Pick one thing that has helped make you a better hunter.

    Your bow doesnt count. It can be anything. A new product, help from a friend, whatever you think has helped you.
    That course was so easy I even missed a target !!

    Only shot a few squirrels and rabbits with a BB gun before the service. Lots of fishing though.
    They taught me to shoot really really good, and how to move, track, observe, decide, and be patient with prey. ,Not every Marine had the same training and experience that I had, by a long shot. Lucky me, huh.

    For me it was doing more scouting. Spending more time in the woods and learning the area better.

    experiance, learning about what your hunting, learning the area your hunting. I think the more you do it, the more you learn.

    As far as products that I've purchased, I would have to say my climbing tree stand. The climber gives me a lot of different options and lets me change hunting plans as the hunt progresses.

    Making sure that you use the crapper before you go up in the stand...

    Nothing worse than being up in your stand and turning it into a square!

    Alabama huh? What part? I have hunted in a couple of different places in Alabama. The Alabama river lodge was a good time with a lot of good people. It is located in Sardis.
    That course was so easy I even missed a target !!

    One thing I did recently was switched releases. It helped me a bunch. I dont think many people think about it but in my opinion the proper release length is just as important as your draw length.

    I am much more confident and I quit punching the trigger by going to a smaller release

    Other than good equipment that fits you, some of the keys to being a better Bowhunter are:
    1. More time spent Hunting
    2. Paying attention to all the details
    3. Ability to shoot under pressure
    The more you want to kill a particular animal the harder it is to make the shot.
