I think some guys are just satisfied to get out hunting a couple of times a year, and if they kill one that's great and if they don't that is ok too. Not everybody has the desire to put the time, effort and money into pursuing big bucks as the guys who frequent forums like this one.
If you have an attitude tjhat its very important to be successful you will do what it takes... If you don't, and your a city boy, your going to be more worried about getting lost than killing a big buck..
I have noticed no matter if there are 4 or 20 cars in the parking lot, and whether I am 100 yards or a mile from the parking lot, I am almost always the last one out, even if I leave before closing time... I think there is a big fear of getting lost.
Thats to bad for those hunters, cause thwe vast majority of the trophy bucks I shoot are shot in the time frame when they are heading back to there trucks.
The last time I hunted when I WAS NOT the last hunter out was when Dewey and I ended up at the same parking area
He must have been in the good spot.
