What You Need To Share in Group Hunting of Deer

Aug 17, 2007
It is very important to share the knowledge that the hunters have when they go for deer hunting, to make them aware of the things you need to take care when hunting. In this article you will learn how important it is to share the knowledge among the hunters in group hunting.

My failure to share my intimate knowledge of these deer resulted in the failure of any of us to obtain a shot. There is the possibility that I was wrong in my deductions and that the presence of my companions prevented the deer from proceeding on the northeast course.

Another time, a similar pair of deer was seen in a field near a road and I was asked to help hunt them. There was no snow on he ground so the actual tracking was out of the question. They had entered a fairly narrow piece of woods and I thought that if a man zigzagged along and did not hurry, the deer might be nudged along much the same as if trailed. I had no knowledge of these deer and the only facts that I could use to predict their course were that they had not crossed the road and that they had apparently arrived from the north. The woods which they had entered extended to the east for about three-quarters of a mile, made a right angle turn around a pond, and then extended north for about the same distance to a road which separated these woods from a much larger wooded area to the north.

There were two family groups of deer in the area to the south and one to the east, and I was uncertain of the number to the north. These deer could belong in any of these areas, but as they had apparently arrived from the north, I decided that they would return to the north. None of the others would agree with my deductions, yet one of the men agreed to travel through the woods to a point where I would be waiting unless he or one of the others shot the deer before that time. The other men would cover the east and south crossings in case I was wrong.

Two hours later I shot a spike-horn buck as it tried to follow a doe across the road into the larger piece of woods. The doe reached safety before I could shoot. I will admit that there was a lot of guesswork in my deciding the probable course of these deer, but I was positive I was right. I stayed at my post and killed the deer, while the others who had covered the other crossings had gone home long before my shot.

I was hunting with three companions when we came to the track of a doe where it crossed a road and entered a large piece of woods. Deer were scarce that year or we would not have bothered with that one, for the piece of woods, which it had entered, was a very difficult place to hunt. There was a good tracking snow, so the deer could be followed; nevertheless, the woods were such that it would be nearly impossible to predict where the deer would stop to observe its back trail. The under-brush was also so thick that it would be difficult to obtain a clear shot anywhere except at a few small clearings which the deer would probably avoid. Because of the size and shape of the woods, it would be impossible to drive the deer from there without the aid of a small army of hunters. I predicted that the deer would stay in the woods until near sunset unless it followed its back trail as soon as it was started. I picked the place where the deer would cross a road if it should decide to leave the woods. I refused to follow the track until I had the assurance of the one hunter in whom I had confidence that he would cover that crossing from sunset to dark.

Your calculations on the shooting might not work at times and you have to make some predictions. These things also can happen even with an experienced hunter.
