So much for the Night before Christmas's prancing and pawing of each little hoof, how about the night before Christmas roast, ribs, and steak! Yum! I'm making myself hungry and have to settle for beef roast tonight for the big family Christmas dinner.
I like beef. I really do. But it just doesn't come close to good wild game that you harvest and preapre yourself. That makes a meal that is infinitely more satifying to my palate or maybe its just more satifying to my soul and brings the palate along for the ride.
If you're lucky enough to be on private land and can leave your stand up during the off season you can tie an old piece of cloth or something of the sort to your stand. I like to use an old camo bandana that I have. That way the deer get used to the movement and eventually don't bother even looking up when there is slight movement. This may just give you the time to draw your bow or raise your gun without being detected.
