Lets hear it, what's your favorite to hunt? Plots, scrapes, rubs, intersecting trails, bait, clear cuts, swamps?

My favorite is archery hunting a community scrape, especially if I made it... Swamps down home but, it's a different beast up here

Any form of turkey hunting followed by hunting a big hardwood bottom from my climber with my rifle in my hand on a clear crisp morning in late January. One of those mornings when you can hear them walking in the leaves.

I’m just lucky to have access to a property I can hunt and the health to make it out. Any way I can get out there is my favorite. Cheesy but it’s true

My favorite setup is a cool October afternoon in the woods with acorns raining down around me. Foliage at peak colors, you can feel the Alabama heat losing its grip on things, the magic of the hunt is renewed from a long offseason. That’s my favorite

Lov clear cut and powerline and crossings/roads. Also like an unpressured field

Also very much like freestate/Gator - just glad to get out

Like controlling the hunt pressure and wind hunt amd letting deer grow and getting multi year pics on them


Hunt the wind - leave it better than you found it - love your neighbor as you love your self

Turkey hunting is King and one lap ahead but I guess the closest I can think of would be bow hunting in the mid west.

My luck has been so bad lately, it could be raining pussies and I'd catch one with a dick broke off in it.

Yeah the first few days of November have been killing days for me for a long long time. Way better than the rut IMO.

From the ground with a bow on a big ridge with a narrow top and mature timber. My problem is I used to be good for several hours standing. Now, I can only last a couple.

Kicking high grass to flush pheasants, tucked in watching a big gobbler hammering on its way in range, busting the hell out off dove with cold beers and good buddies. Shooting back flapping mallards in the face, oh yea and hanging on a tree looking over a trail in a transition area

Don't care....... I target a particular buck and hunt him however I have to hunt him. My favorite method is whatever method it takes to get that particular deer dead.

Good stuff

I stopped getting impressed w how u kill him years back. Just kill the dang thing! Usually low pressure and hunting wind correctly or avoiding getting smelled will b involved

Same w turkeys - i hav hunted some hard scenarios - but now i enjoy easy as well as hard. If he wants to gobble - great chance he getn called in

Cruisin down the backroads in a nice heated cab with a nice bright spotlight and a super accurate small caliber rifle. Doesn't get much better than that

Favorite method is to slip around on top of ridges on big tracts of public in a light drizzle or right after a big rain. Always seem to find deer that way and a lot of times if I see one I want to shoot it’ll be an up close and personal affair. Doesn’t get any better than catching a mature buck easing along with no clue you are right there with him.

This is mine. Slipping down logging roads in wet conditions and the wind in your face. Going to them is way more fun than putting blisters on my rear end waiting. That being said, I move too fast and am not as successful as when I had more time.

I like hunting white oaks, or being up high in a climber, where the deer have no idea I am even there.

Flooded creek bottom in late November/early December with 100 year old red and white oaks. Permanent 20 foot ladder stand that I have killed over 20 bucks from. It is a terrible drag getting them out of the bottom, but it is so great a feeling!


I can't stand a thief.

Second for me is in a summit climber in the grey of dead winter with a little snow on the ground looking at so many redbirds in a holly tree they look like Christmas ornaments!

Hard to top the responses so far.


One favorite of mine are the "surprise" hunts when you don't have your favorite spot available when you go to sign out, and out of frustration take foam pad and just do your best to go find a place to sit against a tree. And low and behold you have several close up encounters in the same hunt. You may not shoot, but those are the times when I remember what hunting is supposed to feel like. After typing that out, I guess I should do it on purpose more often.

Slipping around hay fields and cow pastures that have lots of drains and rolling hills. If hay bales were in the fields, you had something to hide behind and a good shooting rest. I miss the way Marengo county was in the 80’s before so many of the places described got planted in pines.

Whiskey makes it real. 😁

Actually my most enjoyable hunts lately have been easing into a place that’s good on a cold, pretty January morning, popping my Millennium tree seat in a likely place then hopefully popping a deer when it comes by. I do the blind & field or corn thing too, but the ground hunt in a likely spot back in the woods feels the most like “real hunting.”


“Killing tomorrow’s trophies today.”

On the distance I like to walk to my stands:
“The first 100 yards is also the last 100 yards.”

30' high in a climber- watching the edge of some hardwoods and pines where I can still see down into a 2 to 3 tear old clear-cut.
