Deer Hunting Tips:
There are three simple rules to observe while hunting deer and larger north american game animals, sight, smell and sound.
The use of camo clothing is the best place to start but many states require that you wear blaze orange, so in light of that fact get the broken camo orange patterns to break up your outline.
If stalking use trees to your advantage, stay within the tree line and out of open fields and meadows.
The most important factor is that you are in the animals domain and they do know what looks right to them and for the most part upright walking creatures are not normal in their domain and stick out like a sore thumb.
This is probably one of the most important things to keep in mind animals will smell or wind you from extremely long distances so you will need to cover your scent.
Use unscented soap, shampoo and deodorant for personal hygeine.
For clothing, use unscented laundry soap to wash hunting clothes.
Then use the commercial cover scents on your boots and clothing. Purchase all of these which are made especially for hunting, they are made different from the standard unscented soaps in supermarkets.
Using scents. There are also other alternatives such as deer scent lures to attract deer that work effectively as well.
When you are in bedding areas, use extreme caution, big game animals such as deer are very alert, one twig snap and they will be long gone before you even know that they were there. Slow and easy is the only way to go.
Using a deer call. Not everyone can use a deer call or chooses to but the fact remains it works and for the most part works real well. There are many good calls on the market and they do work.
