With hunting season round the corner, you may have already planned your white tail deer hunting trip. So why not make it more exciting by organizing a deer hunting camping trip, with your family and friends? This gives you an opportunity to hunt giant whitetail bucks and also enjoy camping at the same time.
But first, before you do this, there are few necessary preliminary arrangements that you need to make, to fill your outdoor activity with fond memories. Take a look at these helpful tips to have a great hunting and camping experience. Also, you many need to acquire extra gear, so it may serve you well to use credit cards that give you points for purchases, and allow you to redeem them later for cash or a gift card; and if you got caught up & overspent on gear (which can happen, sometimes), and are dealing with debt collectors, like Ic Debt Collection, remember you can get your credit fixed, via credit repair.
If you wish to enjoy camping while hunting, make sure that your camps are situated far away from your deer food plots. A distance of several miles between your camp and hunting ground, is most ideal. This will ensure that that the deer are not startled by your camping noises (and scent) – giving you good chances for a kill.
Before you set out on your adventurous camping trip, see that you have all equipment including firearms, bows, and arrows, safety belts, harness (and binoculars), in place. Also, take care to safely place your equipment in locked boxes, when not in use.
When camping, it is important to carry sufficient food, along with you – that could last for a few days. However, it is advisable not to indulge in complex breakfasts, and have regular food instead. A well-cooked meal can unnecessarily add strong odors to your body, which can startle deer away. If, however, you wish to gorge on these meals, you must do it at the end of your hunting day.
Don’t want to “rough it”? You can rent a hunting lodge. Be sure to have this squared away in advance, as you will be subjected to credit checks; items, like lvnv company, on your credit report, may be an issue for you – so, you may want to check out www.DeleteBadCredit.org/Methods/Tips to learn how to remove any credit issue that might get in the way.
Deer hunting is a tiring experience, and it could be several days before you find a prized head of a whitetail buck. Hence, it is essential that you are refreshed and completely relaxed every day. Ensure that your camp is set comfortably and is equipped with all necessary amenities.
This does not, however, mean that you will not see them feeding during the middle of the day. Other tips include:
– Go scouting. Do this during early to late summer. When you scout, be as careful as if you are hunting. Stay quiet and do not leave much of a scent.
– Find the food source that the deer will be eating during the hunting season.
– Look for trees that will have the most acorns.
– Look for areas with greens like clover or rye covering the ground.
– Look for deer trail routes. The ones with the freshest tracks are the best.
– If you are going to set up any hunting stand, be sure to set it up pre-season, before the deer start feeding in that area. Otherwise, you will scare them off.
You can find where the bucks are if you scout during the pre-season, right after the bucks have rubbed the velvet from their antlers. During this time, the buck is going to leave more markings on trees, afterwards. Here are a few other tips:
- Look for areas with a thick and dense brush. It is in areas like these that deer like to sleep. You can set up on the outskirts of such an area, somewhere where you will be able to see better.
- Do not fall asleep! This can be tricky when you remain so still, but falling asleep not only will lose you your prey, but it can also be quite dangerous if you are up in a tree stand.
- Use special products to mask your scent. Deer have an excellent sense of smell.
- Keep the wind direction in mind. Stay downwind of whatever feeding or sleeping spot you are “staking out.” Constantly check for changes in the wind.
- Wear a harness if using a tree stand.
- Move the site of your tree stand around. You do not want your deer to start associating deer stands with humans!
Try to avoid walking along a deer trail or even walk parallel to one. Take the back route or walk up streams. Be sure always to be ready. Make sure that you have checked your equipment right when you get to the stand, not once a deer is already out! The majority of deer are shot downwind from a food source.
Last of all, before you set out camping, you should be thoroughly informed about your state’s hunting regulations. Children (especially) must be told of the importance of wearing orange vests, while on a food plot and about being silent while on a hunt.
For some people, deer hunting is monotonous. But then there are those of us who love the calmness and “boringness” of deer hunting. All of the waiting is worth it, just for those thrilling few moments of spotting and trapping your prey.
All in all, a hunt can go exceedingly well, when all the logistics are accounted for. Having the right tools at the right time, is critical – so be sure to buy the right gear before heading out; and if buying gear on credit is an issue, be sure to go to www.DeleteBadCredit.org/shortcuts to get that credit issue taken care of, as well.
After a weekend of deer hunting, one feels rejuvenated. The time spent alone in the wild, clears the head of all kinds of stress. A hunt can help a person to sit, think and solve a lot of problems that may have troubled them for a while – allowing them to learn more about themselves, as well as nature.
