One word comes to mind. STEALTH. Anyway you can make yourself "invisable' to a deer's eyes, nose and ears.
Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and feed him for a lifetime.

learn your yardage and plan your shots. practice the hardests shot you can imagine and then when you are in the field you have the confidence to make the shots that are presented to you. Confidence in yourself and your bow are key

SCENT......smell like you live in the woods dont buy scent blocker or store products grab dirt and vegetation from around the area and let it sit in a scentproof bag till ready to use w/your hunting clothes of coursethen drive out to your spot and dress there wash with dial unscented antibacterial soap and use baking soda like baby powder all over your body especially armpit and lower back area

Stay humble, never think you have trained enough or prepared enough, i also try to think of every hunt as if I knew that a once in a lifetime buck was going to come through my stand. Also try hanging a stand and shooting from it in your yard or whereever you shoot, this will give you practice from elevated shots and familiarize you with the sequences. Just like NJ said, next to practice i think scent is the most important thing, its crazy how good a deer senses are, a couple of things that usually throw off some strong natural scents are cedar twigs and pine needles, usually you can find some of these and if you crumple them up you will notice how distinct the smell is. Hope this helps.

I gotta go with practice. BEing comfortable with your bow will help a lot. Knowing you can hit your target is another. Practice from the top of tree stands. Hitting a target below you and at a distance is different than being on a level plane with it. Learn how your target...ie: deer line up at different angles. Study some internal diagrams and realize that trying to hit a deer in both lungs, quartering away from you level, requires a different target position from on high. Think of them in three-d, and adjust your targeting accordingly. Most importantly, learn to judge your distances. Start learning a walking pace off that you use every time. Find a few, or three limbs and mark off your thirty yard range around your stand. Practice before you use this so you know how your arrow will drop, rise or whatever, from the position you see the deer. Practice, practice, practice!!! Then, develop a mantra that you tell yourself in the tree...I'll be calm, pull smoothe, wait for my chance....I'll be calm, pull smoothe, and wait for my chance....OH....and don't forget!!!! Look for shot paths!!! There is nothing more irritating than watching your arrow glance off a limb you couldn't see because of deer fever.

Make sure you hunt with the wind in your face even if you are wearing scent lok clothing or bathed your gear in some form of scent control spray. Make sure you have cover around you to break up your silhouette. Practice shooting with your gear on to see if your gear alters your point of impact.

If you are going to be hunting in an elevated stand or a ground blind where you will be sitting learn to shoot in the sitting position. That way you will not need to stand and give the deer a chance of seeing you move.

Living on a small farm, I took a round bale of hay, placed it on a wooden skid, then I drove small posts in at 10,20,and30 yards. This is my homemade practice range. A peice of cardboard, with a rifle target attached to it, and you're ready to practice. I use both field points and broadheads on the hay. it works for me.

I forgot...be sure to shoot in the SIDE of the roundbale, or your arrow will get lost in the loose hay at the end of the bale

Find your local pro shop, go there and do some shooting. Sign up for a league or a tournament. The people that do these things are almost always bow hunters too and they can teach you alot. Dont worry about being the new guy that dont know alot because they see this everyday. You will learn aloy in a hurry and have a blast doing it.
