This is floating around online again. I'm a big Fred Bear fan and this is still some wisdom young hunters need to be told. You fellows have any other words of wisdom?

Fred Bear’s Ten Commandments of Hunting
• Don’t step on anything you can step over. 

• Don’t look for deer, look for movement and remember it’s what they’re looking for, too.

• Always approach from downwind. In the cool of the day, move uphill; in the heat of the day, move downhill.

• The best camouflage pattern is called, “Sit down and be quiet!” Your grandpa hunted deer in a red plaid coat, think about that for a second.

• Take only the gear to the field that allows you to hunt longer, harder, smarter.

• A rainstorm isn’t a reason to quit the hunt, it’s a reason to stay.

• Camouflage your appearance, your sound and your scent.

• Be sure of your shot. Nothing is more expensive than regret.

• Hunt where the deer actually are, not where you’d imagine them to be.

• Next year’s hunt begins the minute this season’s hunt ends.
