Have you ever looked around at other hunter’s success and wondered what their secret was? How did they become so successful? How did they fill so many tags? How did they find such amazing animals? There could be many answers to those questions, but for hunters that consistently get it done on public lands, it boils down to simple elements, such as focus, preparation, determination, time in the field, etc. Maybe what we need to do is focus on the basics, be persistent, and that becomes the “secret” to being a more effective hunter.
