    I am going on my first deer hunt in a few weeks. Are there any tips you have learned that could help me out. Im using a rifle, I'm not sure what caliber. I'll be in Georgia if that helps.

    Hopefully you'll be going with someone who knows what they are doing. That would be the best tip I could give you.

      Hopefully you will have some time to practice with the rifle before you go hunting. That would be the best advice I can give you besides what OH said.

            All good advice, but please heed Ontario. Also, mentally follow through on the shot.

              +1 on taking some practice shots with the rifle. If you haven't spent much time around guns, make sure an experienced shooter is there to coach you.

              Don't be chomping at the bit to bust the first deer you get a glimpse of. If a good shot doesn't present itself, don't try to force it.

              Apart from that, be quiet, be still, and be patient, and most importantly, just have a great time being outdoors.

                All good posts, to which I might add: don't take any running shots!

                  The posts above pretty much cover it without knowing more about your situation. Just to reiterate:
                  You cannot sit still enough.
                  You should shoot as much as your life allows between now and then even if it isn't with the rifle you will use.
                  Have fun and remember that for your first deer don't set your expectations too high.
                  Good luck!

                      When a shooter buck presents a shot, take it, quickly. I am not saying rush your shot, take your time, just be ready and take it when it presents. Don't overthink it. Practice and shoot well ahead of time.

                          Yeah, man, safety first. Don't let your eyes play tricks on you, identify that target. If you get hot, don't take off your hunter orange. When you are walking out of the woods, wear all you've got.

                          Good luck!

                            Stay in the woods all day. Many big bucks have been killed in the afternoon. Good Luck!
