I just have to buy some rubber boots and I think I am going today to buy some new arrows. Other than that just a constant stream of target practice!

A book to keep your mind stimulated when the deer just arent moving. (make sure you can put it away unnoticed when the deer appear out of thin air)

A journal to record sightings, weather conditions, misc things.

Maps and ariel photos.

A powder wind indicator or a feather tied to your stabilizer with thread.

Everyone forgot to mention a 150" class whitetail broadside with its head down eating clover. For some of you it might be a whitetail with horns that stays put after you shoot the first four arrows of your quiver and you finally connect on the fifth.:yikes:
