How to Enjoy Deer Hunting In Group

Aug 17, 2007
If you are an occasional hunter, did you ever try hunting in group? Hunting with a companion is of great way and it helps you also in your trail and stalking the deer. But it is difficult to find a hunting companion who will be a help rather than a hindrance. This is because unless they work, as a team, the chances of either of them sighting a deer depends more on luck than it does on hunting skill. When hunting with a group that is large enough to cover all probable crossing places, it is not so important for the trailer to stick to his trailing. It is not so important for the trailer to stick to his trailing. You can apply a different type of hunting when in group.

There are several ways in which two hunters may work as a team in deer hunting. They may go into the woods and travel a short distance apart in an effort to stalk feeding or resting deer. If they start a deer, they may separate, with one man on the trail and the other off to one side so that he may sight the deer if it should turn in an effort to evade the trailer. They should keep in touch with each other so that as soon as the deer's course may be predicted, one of the men can circle and cut in ahead of the deer and intercept it on its expected course. This is where most hunting teams become individual hunters. If the deer fails to show up at the expected place at the expected time, the watcher is apt to start hunting aimlessly instead of trying to intercept the deer at another point or rejoin his companion in order to determine the deer's new course. If two hunters are able to contact each other occasionally, they may be able to alternate on the trail and may hunt all day without too much fatigue to either.

A large part of my hunting has been done in a farming country where deer were in patches of woods which varied in size from several thousand acres down to practically nothing. When hunting the smaller of these wood patches, one man would start and trail the deer, and his companion would watch the place where the animal could be expected to leave the woods. In this type of hunting, the man who jumps and trails the deer should not try to stalk or to intercept the animal, but should confine his attention to the trail unless he should overtake the deer and have a good chance for a shot.

When the trailer hunts as he would if alone, he is apt to cause the deer to change its course enough so that his companion will have no chance to prevent the animal from reaching another piece of woods and prolonging the hunt. Of course, when hunting with a group that is large enough to cover all probable crossing places, it is not so important for the trailer to stick to his trailing. In such cases it is probably better to organize a "drive" which is a different type of hunting and requires different tactics.

While hunting with one or two companions, it is desirable for them to have a plan and for each man to play his part in that plan until the deer's actions prove it to be useless and the hunters have a chance to meet and devise another plan. Nothing discourages a trailer more than to follow a trail to the place where a man has been stationed only to find that he is gone.

Two hunters can work as a team in deer hunting. Even though they go separate ways they should keep in touch with each other so that as soon as the deer's course may be predicted, one of the men can circle and cut in ahead of the deer and intercept it on its expected course. Therefore as a whole you can sum up that there is a need to have good combination between the two of the hunters.
