Why do some hunters kill elk almost every year, while others rarely do? When I was a kid I killed far more deer than my dad and brother. It actually became embarrsing. My skill and equipment was no better than theirs. Mom thought I had a lucky gun. I hunt with guys that kill elk every year out of my stands, while some never do. We move around trading stand locations, so it is not that one stand is getting all of the action. There is some great reading material on how to hunt, but that does not change things for some. I know some people who read the book I wrote, who had success right away, while others saw no difference. I will post again here later, but I would like your thoughts.
