Your going to love deer hunting. It is alot of fun. You will need the basic gear for this year and move on/up from there. Knife,drag,treestands,warm clothes, etc. Start your scouting soon. Find where they are now, and they will be close by this fall. Scout a little thru the summer, and just before the season starts.Make sure you set up down wind from where the deer are going to come from. Scent control is important. I like to use scent free deoderant,soaps,laundry detergent, and sprays.I like to wear rubber boots. Practice like crazy with your bow and/or gun also. There will be alot more tips also from other guys, but this is a descent start.
