Tip for Whitetail Deer Hunting

Aug 17, 2007
The best tips for whitetail deer hunting often come from other experienced hunters. It is also really cool when you discover techniques that work best for you from your own personal experience. Every hunter seems to have their own deer hunting tips and secrets. I have included some basic deer hunting tips.

1) Deer are the most active at dawn and dusk. It seems that most of my fellow hunters have gotten their deer at dawn or dusk over the years. This does not mean that dear are not active during the day. But, your chances are greater at dawn and dusk. So, make sure you get up early enough, and do not leave until quitting time. It is often easy to get frustrated if you have not seen anything all day long. But, make sure that you stay until the last minute. I have gotten a few deer five minutes before quitting time.

2.) It is a good idea to find the deer's source of food. In my state, corn is the main food source. So, it is a good idea to watch the edge of the cornfields.

3) It is nice to have a tree stand. This will make it easy to see in all directions. Be careful getting in and out of your tree-stand. Some hunters build permanent stands if they own the property. But, you can also buy a nice portable stand. Make sure you practice getting in and out of your tree stand before the season starts. Always wear a harness for safety.

4) Make sure your rifle is sited in and ready to go. Also, make sure you have plenty of ammunition, warm gloves, boots, hat, compass, GPS. (optional but not a bad idea, if you are in an unfamiliar area), cell phone (make sure your turn it on vibrate), food, thermos, rope, knife, hand warmer, Ziploc bag, etc.

5) Make a checklist before leaving on your hunting trip to make sure you do not forget anything.

6) Always make sure you ask the property owner for permission before hunting. This is a common courtesy.

7) While waiting in your tree stand, make sure that you are extremely quiet and do not move. Deer have an extremely good senses.

8) Make sure that you understand the laws and regulations of your state. If you have not hunted in a while, it is a good idea to take a refresher course.

In conclusion, the best deer hunting tips often come from other experienced hunters and from your own personal experience. It is a good idea to make a checklist before leaving on your hunting trip to make sure you do not forget anything. Also, make sure that you get up early enough to be at your spot before sunrise and do not leave one minute before quitting time. Many times I was ready to throw in the towel after not seeing anything for hours. However, I always try to stick it out until last minute. This is when deer become most active.
