    Dwight's book is a must read.

    In addition to some of the great comments already posted I would add that unless you see the buck leave, he is still there!

    I remember sneaking in on a buck during my teenage years. When I couldn't find him I assumed the jig was up and I had blown the stalk. Frustrated I pulled off my face mask only to have the buck blow out of there less than 20 yards away. So I repeat, after completing your stalk if you have not seen the buck leave he is still there! Take a deep breath, relax, you will find him or he will eventually reveal his location.

    One other tip that may help you. Stalk with the setting or rising sun at your back when possible. If the sun is low enough in the sky, animals have a tough time seeing you coming. I have witnessed people stalk within bow range of deer using this method on open ground.

    Patience is the key. Most people will start out their stalk in open country slow and easy. It seems as their stalk progresses the more impatient they get. They tend to speed up the stalk and in turn make to much noise and movement. Patience!!

    Hate to be a repeat, but patience and good optics are an absolute must for me. Whenever possible I try to watch a buck bed and then continue to watch for another 45 min. or more to make sure he's completely comfortable. Then it's slow and steady…if you're super lucky you might win the race.
