Best Way to get a trophy deer in AL

Hello everyone my names Will I'm 13 and just started deer hunting this year. I hunt in Greene County, Alabama. What is the best way to get a trophy buck?
I have been hunting from a shooting house and have not had much luck (Did kill my first buck! A spike weighed 123 lbs!) I can hunt from a tree stand. Do you guys know any calls or something that would help?

Best Way to get a trophy deer in AL

try and do some scouting for rubs scrapes and deer trails and see where they are moving to and from and get in a stand where you can see and have a good shot at a deer on the trails. you can try grunting and ratteling but ppractice before you hunt the more realistic it sounds the better your chances. I have had some luck with one of the bleet cans called "the can" some people say they're crap but it has worked for me this year, i had an eight point come through while i was using it. but the best advice that i can personally give you is do a lot of scoutimg and find where the deer live and just spend time in the woods. Good luck

80% scouting 20% hunting.
That expresion is a little exagerated but the point is do a lot of scouting and know where the deer your looking for is going to be and when he'll be there and then murphy's law will take over. Big smile
