#2: Glass, Glass, and Glass
"I live with a pair of Swarovski 10×42s in my hand," Kirkpatrick says. Feeding deer are never more visible than they are now, and he takes advantage by glassing mornings and evenings. "I glass from my truck or stay out of sight by using a barn, silo, wagon, or woodpile to spy on a good buck entering a field, or hitting white oaks on an open-wooded hillside." Your goal here is to single out a shooter buck and learn the spot where he typically enters the chow zone.
