Hunting Tips

There are as many hunting tips, strategies, tactics, and techniques as there are hunters.


Helpful tips can aid a hunter from the time he purchases his first firearm until he sits down to supper to enjoy his back-strap with mashed potatoes and gravy. So, let me get the ball rolling with a tip of my own.



Deer scouting strategy

I’ve learned that deer are creatures of habit, and they seem to follow a routine path. It’s up to the deer hunter to find out what their habits and routine are. This can take time and observation. Any time I’m out and about, I’m looking for deer. Winter, spring, summer, or fall I keep my eyes open. I take notice when I see deer activity and make a mental note of the location. Then as I travel around and see deer at the same locations again and again throughout the year, I pretty much have decided on where I need to set up my tree stand by the time hunting season arrives. It’s a simple strategy, but it works.
