    I love the challenge of a new hunting spot. Half the fun for me is breaking down a new area and trying to connect with a deer. I have done this the last two years traveling to a place I have never been before and tried to harvest a buck with my bow over 3-4 days. I have had opportunites the last two years, which is all you can really ask for. So hopefully this year will be the year I connect.

    If you want to harvest an animal every fall, then I would say the same spot. For the sake of being outdoors and meeting and greeting whatever nature can throw at you, new and different areas would get the nod.

    If there hunting is good in one pot I stay. If it stinks then I might have to go to a better spot.

    absolutely both! adventure, excitement,challenge!, but then there are the good old reliable spots, the familier spots that you have hunted your whole life, in SC I had my squirrel spot always got a few and knew it like the back of my hand, now I live in Ia, exciting get to start all over again!

    I love this question because even though I find myself often going back to the same old well known locations in the mountains, you just can't bet the feeling of hunting on a good horse in new country.

    I love adventure and always looking at finding a new area. What I use to get around without getting lost and finding really neat places is first I go onto the internet and look for places of interest by clicking on the following and fly around like a pilot.

    http://maps.live.com/default.aspx?v=2&cp=44.023938~-99.71&style=h&lvl=4&tilt=-89.875918865193&dir=0&alt=7689462.6842358

    Once I find an area of interest, I get out by TOPO Map I bought at Wal-Mart and locate it. Scrub it all over for human population etc with both live.com and TOPO then go out to the truck were I have my Lowrance iFINDER® Hunt™ C Handheld GPS plugged in and find it. Load up the ATV and gear and enjoy!

    I agree with Del and Kingfish, both. I love learning new spot and love having a comfortable spot which I am confident in.

    I agree with kingfish both are good for different reasons. There's a farm in MO I have hunted since 1979. I have two stands on it that are as predictable for an opening day shot at a mature buck as it gets. Check my pics for the 2 bucks (14 and 8 points) a friend and I shot last fall. Also enjoy exploring and hunting new farms like the one in Kansas I started hunting last fall.

    good question...I love both...nothing beats the excitement of exploring new hunting territory and hoping that new hotspot is just around the next bend...still, the knowledge gained by hunting the same piece of country, season after season, is invaluable and only comes with time...

    Feels good to hunt land you know like the back of your hand, but I'd take new over known most times.

    I like hunting new land, but every gun season I am at my farm.

    For deer, I like to intimately learn an area and their habits, and expand from there - I hunt mostly heavy woods. But it is always refreshing to get into a new area. For upland birds, I like to continuously try new areas and use the hunts to scout for deer.
