The Thrill Of Whitetail Deer Hunting

Dec 5, 2007
One reason that whitetail deer hunting can prove to be so difficult is the fact that the does are extremely careful about keeping their offspring hidden from predators. This results in the deer, even in maturity, being quite shy, nervous and overly cautious.

Some hunters even claim that white tailed deer have ESP. As the story goes, the hunter was in the woods with the animal all around him. While some of the animal remained totally at ease and seemingly unaware of the hunter's presence, others started to get very nervous and left the area for no apparent reason.

The reasoning is that the deer were fine until the hunter started concentrating on killing. Some liken it to the feeling you sometimes get when you just know someone is watching you. Their advice pertaining is to try to stay relaxed so that the animal will not sense your excitement or presence.

Defining the whitetail deer's habitat is difficult because these animals are highly adaptable. This makes it possible for them to thrive everywhere from swamps, deserts and plains to mountain ranges. One of the reasons deer hunting has become more popular is that they have no problem living near towns and cities either, oftentimes becoming pests and hazards to their co-inhabitants, humans.

What would you consider successful whitetail deer hunting? Many say just getting out in the woods makes for a good hunt. Putting themselves amid many different types of animals, sort of acting out the man versus beast scenario. Of course, actually seeing the animal adds much to the experience and occasion. And, naturally, taking a deer is the peak moment of satisfaction and accomplishment.

Have you ever found yourself in the position of defending hunting? If you are like most hunters, that answer would have to be yes. It is a controversial topic and there is little you can do to sway the opinion of the non-hunter in your direction. When it comes to defending deer hunting, try to be sincere and actually put your heart into it just as you do during the actual hunts.

One thing that non-hunters have a hard time with is when the hunter kills for sport and get a thrill out of doing so. It is one thing to hunt for food, yet quite another to kill for a set of antlers. For example, some non-hunters have been told that "trophy hunters" do not use the meat from their kills, which you know to be untrue.

Perhaps educate them a little by showing them that wildlife populations have increased across the US, partly due to the fact that hunters are footing the bill through many different hunting funds. Try not to talk down to someone who has never experienced the thrill of finally seeing a big buck while whitetail deer hunting.

Maybe the most important thing is to know when to quit. Sometimes if dealing with tightly closed minds that can't or won't concede that they may have been wrong, you are better off agreeing to disagree.
