Basic Deer Hunting Tips

If you have just started hunting deer, some tips from more experienced hunters can really help you become what you have dreamed of. Of all the good ones you may hear, the following deer hunting tips are the basic ones for beginners just like you.

* Earlier Can Be Better

It is crucial to understand that there are rules that all hunters should follow at all times. Deer hunting is only suitable for specific periods in a year and in a day. Hunters are not encouraged to play their games at night or at dawn. This common sense rule is aimed at ensuring that no hunter ever comes to harm.

However, this does not mean that you can only show up at a specific hunting time. You can always be at a hunting area early in the morning as long as you do not attempt to shoot any deer before the sun comes up. In fact, this is important that you arrive your area earlier to get yourself familiarized with the environment and position yourself at a favorable spot close to your target.

* Keep Your Hunting Game Until Sunset

Even if you arrive at your hunting area early in the morning, you should not stop hunting until the last rays of the sun are about to disappear. Just like early morning, late afternoons are crucial time to both the deer and the deer hunters. It has been reported that late afternoons are the time when hunters are likely to get good shots and have many options to choose from.

The importance of late afternoons is because the deers have to adjust their eyesight to the changing light at that time. This has made it difficult for the deers to detect you. Besides, the late afternoon is also a time when the deers come out for food and water, so that you will have lots of choices to target.

* Make Yourself Smell Neutral

You are supposed to go hunting. You are not about to go on a date, bar or party. With this in mind, you should just avoid using cologne, soap, perfume, shaving cream and other strongly scented products. These scents will not attract deer. They will instead alert the deer that something does not smell right. You should instead simply have a neutral smell. This is a great way for you to be able to merge with the scents in your surroundings.

* Stay Quiet

The top tip of all that even some beginners instinctively know is to keep quiet at all times. This does not just mean keeping your mouth shut. This also means that you have to ensure that your movements do not create even slight rustles. As you may have seen in the nature channel, deer are very sensitive. They are also quite careful. They can easily hear things and run away at the slightest sound.

The tips included in this article are only the basic ones, but, as deer hunting is probably the most popular form of hunting activity, there are more than enough open sources for you to learn more advanced deer hunting tips. You may even come up with your own tips to share with others after some practice.
