I have had my best luck with bucks early in the season and I'll tell you how I got most of them.
First, I knew the area well and had a good idea from scouting and past hunting experiences where the big bucks liked to bed down.
Like LJ, I pick my days and I agree with him, a misty rain with heavy air works well. I can smell a deer.
Still hunting - real still hunting! Cover almost no ground in an hours time but I scan the terrain looking for anything that could resemble any part of a deer.
I have shot many bucks just as they got up out of their beds - some so close to me it scared the bejeepers out of me.
Other than that, for those nocturnal bucks, get a BIG flashlight! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
