Basic Deer Hunting Tips – 4 Ways To Grab The Trophy!

While to some it may seem obvious the right things to do, and not do when deer hunting, for the newcomer there are some tips that may are well worth mentioning. Deer hunting isn’t as simple as walking into the woods with a gun, there is a lot of preparation required, but following these few guidelines, a hunter will greatly increase his chances of bagging his first trophy.

• Start Early. Hunting season is limited to only a certain time of the year, and only at certain times of the day. Firearms are not to be discharged before sunrise, nor after sunset. This protects the safety of other hunters in the area, because at these times there is not enough light to reflect off the hunter orange every hunter is required to wear. Some states however, allow guns to be fired one half hour before sunrise, and one half hour after sunset; check local regulations for further details. Keeping this in mind, a hunter should still use the law to his best advantage; head out to your blind well before sunrise. This will allow you to remain better hidden from any deer in the area, and when sunrise does come up and the deer are moving around, the hunter will be ready and waiting in his blind.

• Stay Late. While some hunters choose to hunt the entire day, sunrise and sunset are the best time to find the deer. Depending on local regulations, a hunter should start to head to his blind well before sunset, around mid-afternoon, and stay for as long as the law will allow, at most one half hour after sunset. If a hunter is only able to hunt a limited time of the day, these are the two best times to do it.

• No Scents. Before going out to hunt avoid any unnatural smells; this may be the one time of year when a shower may not be in a hunter’s best interest. No perfume, cologne, or after shave, and beware of strongly scented deodorant. Deer have a very sensitive sense of smell, and even the slightest scent can alert them to a hunter’s presence.

• Absolute Silence. While this may be a slight exaggeration, silence is essential when deer hunting. Very low whispers only, and if that can be avoided, all the better. Hunters often underestimate a deer’s heightened senses, so be sure to stay as quiet as humanly possible, otherwise your trophy buck may be long gone before you even get a peek at him.

While there are a lot of other things to know to increase your chances when deer hunting, these are the basics a hunter should keep in mind before heading to the woods. Following these few rules will help a hunter bag the trophy he’s been dreaming of.
