One of the hardest challenges any hunter faces is the prospect of having to find a new hunting area. Where do you look? What should you be looking for? How can you best judge the value of one area over another?
The answer to all of these questions is complex to say the least. Deer need the same sort of things we do. They need food, access to water, and some form of shelter in order to feel security and safe from predators.

It is no secret that animals in the wild have a far sharper set of senses than your average hunter. Deer are especially well adjusted to their environment and are put on high alert the very moment they detect anything out of the ordinary in the world around them.

There are certainly some things you can attempt to do to minimize your smell, but there are also other smells you can incorporate that can help to improve your chances of bagging a deer.Continue reading

Just because you saw a deer in a field one day does not, by any means, guarantee that this particular deer will be there again tomorrow or even next week.

In each case, the particular deer you just saw may in fact have no connection to this particular field and may not be there when hunting season comes around. If what you are after is an almost certain guarantee of venison in the freezer, you should take a few needed steps to all but secure your prize once the season sets in.Continue reading
Whitetail deer behaviors can change for any number of reasons. Predators and hunters can force deer to behave strangely as can food availability and weather concerns. If an animal is placed under stress in their current environment, it will surely do its best to either remove the stress or to remove itself from the environment.
One of the greatest reasons for changes in deer behavior is in regards to the shift in seasons. Many deer behave in predictable patters based upon the season. This is an especially important piece of information to consider when not only hunting, but when doing preseason spotting as well.Continue reading
