Center Shots: How to Leverage Luck for Successful Whitetail Seasons

As any diligent deer hunter knows, hunting a specific deer usually involves more luck than anything else. After all, you can't control enough factors in a situation to create the opportunity that completely overpowers luck. It can be downright hard to get it done sometimes. Most of us just put the time in and hope that buck comes by. Simply put, you have to be lucky to be successful some seasons.


Field Editor Bill Winke examines the role luck plays in your season and how a positive attitude can help you leverage that luck to become better whitetail hunter next season in this Center Shots segment.
