Tired of going of coming up empty handed every hunting season? Here’s some tips that might help you bring home a nice Buck next season.
First of all, keep in mind that the by far the best time to hunt for deer, whether it be in Oklahoma or elsewhere, is right before dawn and right at dusk. Deer generally don’t come out much during the middle of the day, so you probably won’t have much luck hunting during these times.
Another great tip is to take many notes when doing your research on the location you plan on hunting in because this will help you to get an exact feel for the terrain you will be hunting on. You will probably want to go a day early to the place you will be hunting and take some notes of all the places that the deer will be going so that you know exactly where to go to intercept them. For instance, find out where their feeding place is, and where they live right now so that you can get in between these areas and catch them when they pass.
Also, always make sure to wear a harness if you are in a tree stand. This is to ensure your safety. If you don’t do this, you run the risk of falling off it. Yes, this might sound obvious, but believe it or not many hunters don’t take the precaution, and can, therefore, suffer serious injuries from falling. Don’t let this happen to you.
Also, make sure to move the tree stand around from time to time. If you are in the tree stand often, the deer will learn to avoid the stand because they will associate it with you. However, when you move it from place to place, they will be less likely to stay away from that. Now that you know some great deer hunting tips, here are a few myths to expose.
First of all, big bucks do not frequently roam. Generally speaking, bucks like to stay in one general area that they feel comfortable and, although they may roam when they search for other areas. However, most of the time they like to stay in certain areas, so you will have to search for them if you want to get them because they probably will not come to you.
Another important deer myth to eliminate is that big bucks only stay in places where there is the thick cover. While this can sometimes be true, they also go to other places such as hills and ridges where they are more exposed.
Finally, make sure you check with the local guides before you go out hunting, particularly if you are unfamiliar with the hunting location. This is a great way to help you to find the best place to go hunting without actually having to do all the research yourself because you simply soak in the knowledge of the local guides. Unfortunately, all too many hunters go to the new location and spend their whole time on a try to find the best place to stay; when you have this information beforehand, all you have to worry about is shooting the deer.
Therefore, if this is the case, you’ll probably have more trouble getting to them, as they can see you from a long ways off. Try to find bucks that stay in thick cover, because they’ll be less likely to see you this way.
Finally, make sure you invest in good deer hunting gun; regardless of how good a hunter or accurate a shooter you might be, the best hunting equipment can make all the difference between catching and just missing a deer as they run by. Use these deer hunting tips to catch as many deer as possible on your next trip.
