Advice for a newbie

Recently I have had the opportunity to learn from some great guys tagging along on some turkey and duck hunts, however with deer season fast approaching I am getting excited and anxious about being off on my own. Got any tips, secrets or tricks of the trade you would like to share?

Wait until full light in the morning before starting to hunt. I can recount hundreds of times(and I mean hundreds) that if I had waited just a couple of minutes more I would have seen the deer first, instead of spooking it. Not to mention the very obvious Safety Factor.
Enjoy your hunting

Well I sat in a tree stand for 6 hrs today, freezing, raining on and off and didn't see a single deer. Hopefully I will have better luck in the morning.

Hunt the approaching and retreating storms, not the heart of the storm. Have always had good luck with that. Also, overcast days are the best.
