I know most of you have probably already forgotten about Deer hunting and are turning your thoughts to fishing or Spring Turkey hunting. Hey, that's okay. But if you want a crack at next years Big Buck, get out and do some post season scouting.
I guess this should have been written ealier in the year seeing how many States deer hunting season's are already under way.
But better late than never!
I receive quite a bit of email about Deer hunting on public land. Having just came back from a Controlled Hunt on Public Land myself, here are some tips for you that are heading out to hunt Public Land Deer.
With the deer hunting season fast approaching in many areas of the country, many deer hunters are looking for buck sign in their favorite patch of woods. Rubs happen to be one sure sign that a buck has been in the area. Doe deer don't make rubs.
I think it's safe to say that most of us have had to deal with Buck Fever at one time or another. But as most of us know, it's how you deal with buck fever that will decide whether or not you go home with a deer or not.
With the rising cost of fuel these days, I can imagine there are a lot of deer hunters who will be looking for ways to cut their deer hunting cost. Maybe this isn't the year you buy that new rifle or bow. Perhaps that new set of Camouflage clothes will have to wait. Or maybe you're looking to get involved in deer hunting but it looks too expensive. I'm going to tell you that it doesn't have to be expensive and you can get started deer hunting for less than $1000 and even less than $500 if you pick your gear correctly.
How To Score A Deer
Now that most deer season's are over and the deer hunting is done for another year, many of you are wondering how to score a deer.
It seems that scoring carries a mystical nature to it. It's like some secret code passed down by the Templar Knights or something.
I was reading a post by Arthur over at SimplyOutdoors.Net the other night. He had an excellent post on baiting deer. After reading his post, I found that we have some of the same opinions about baiting Deer.
The best way I can sum up the new Bass Pro Store in Pearland Texas is; A Lot of Fluff, Little Substance.
I've looked forward to this store opening ever since Bass Pro announced they were going to build it. Currently, the nearest Bass Pro Store to me is in Katy Texas. It's about an hour and half, sometimes two to get to the Katy store. You have to drive through Houston stop and go traffic, navigate a mess of road construction and short tempered drivers to get there.
How To Hunt Deer Funnels
I'm going to assume that you haven't lived under a rock your entire deer hunting life. However, even if you have, I'll briefly describe what a deer funnel is.
A deer funnel is basically anything that causes deer to pass through a narrow or restricted area. Think of the tiny midsection of an hour glass and you'll get the picture.
Hunting fields and food plots seems to be a pretty popular subject going by the number of emails I receive. With a little scouting and pre-planning, you can have that field visiting Buck strung up in no time!keep looking »
