I'd love to scout with some guys more knowledgeable than me in the terrain I hunt.

As for hunting, I like to share a ride, but not a block of timber.

Can't wait for me kids to get old enough though.

My feeling exactly.

I generally hunt with others but i am almost always wandering off doing my own thing…

I have learned to take it all for what it is worth and enjoy any situation in the outdoors, friends, family or solo, can't go wrong.

It's probably 75/25 for me. I have a couple of good friends I hunt with most of the time. We are all happy to lend a hand getting deer out and it is nice to have the company when traveling. When we get to the area we are hunting we all hunt separately and meet up back at the truck when done.

I also enjoy hunting by myself and having the freedom of going when and where I want.

Alone other than my brother (same areas different times) and occasionally take my wife. Big deer hunting especially alone, its very hard to put all the pieces of the puzzle together much less trying to coordinate where a group of others are going. I consider every trip out a very special time and dont like risking that being tarnished, as my brother is the only person Iv found who shares the same mindset.

I am a lone wolf and do not like hunting with others. I will take a kid hunting during the youth season though.

Did alot of drives with a small group gun season years ago. Enjoy sharing camp with others. Helped take young hunters out a few times. Have acted as guide for my brother and some freinds while bowhunting for elk. Never found a partner for elk that thought enough like me to keep things coordinated enough between us. Once lost a chance for a shot at a DANDY buck causew my brother shot and missed a doe in a stand only 75 yaerds away. Just had alot of different things happen that made me want to be alone. That is when I'm seriously trying to take an animal of my own. Just like it being me, myself and I agaist the animal I'm after.

Hunting alone gives me the confidence I need to make the kill happen. Hunting with family and friends keeps us close. And it's great. But if I'm on a big deer...I'd rather be alone

Mostly by myself, handful of times a season I will make it out with my wife. Last season seazofcheeze and I sat in the same tree and tried filming for the first time late season when I had a tag left and he was tagged out, that was a good time, got some does on film

Lone wolf. Only times buddy goes with are on trips. Love the solitude. Thats not to say I don't share a spot. But prefer to hunt, scout locally by myself.

I'm pretty much a loner. Usually get around 40 days in during season and my bro or buddy tag along about 10. It's nice having someone to help keep me focused during the season but it's also nice just worrying about what I'm doing

I hunt alone most of the time. If I hunt with anyone it is my dad. We usually scout together.

100% lone wolf, may be around during hunting season but always go my separate way

Though 7 yr old is slowly becoming very interested in Scouting/hunting mature bucks so I will be hunting with him if that's what he chooses.

I roll solo. Maybe once a year I'll hunt with my father during the gun opening.
