Deer hunting tricks

#1 Post by t.r. » Wed Dec 05, 2018 6:00 pm

If you want to stop deer along a well travelled route so you can make a good shot, drag a small tree across their trail. They will stop and stare at it before going around.

Want to make deer cross a fence where you want them to cross? Tie the top strand to the middle strand of barbed wire and then drag a small tree to block access to their former crossing spot.

Want to have a permanent deer blind for cheap? Buy a junk car from a salvage yard and have it towed to your spot in the woods. Stuff old clothes with newspapers to form dummies and place them in the front seat. Opening day you simply toss the dummies into the rear seat and hunt with the windows open. Deer can't tell the difference between the dummies and live hunters. No kidding, this works!

My Dad (1922-2004) taught me these tricks.

Head out to the woods with four noisy grade-schoolers along. Get into your stand, then tell them to go back to the house, and make as much noise as they want. Most of the times I did that, I'd shoot a deer within 30 minutes. Evidently they can't count... :D
