The outdoors is a great place! But we’re not just talking about the outdoors, we’re talking about hunting in the outdoors! And if you have anything against hunting you should drop this paper and leave.
If you don’t come prepared you may not be able to hunt.To go hunting you have to dress properly. This is because if you go hunting with a tie-dye shirt on the animals won’t even look at you or come near you. You have to have a camo that matches the nature you’re hunting in. Then it’s all up to the animal.
Scent in hunting is key in preparing and stealth. So as you wake up or get ready take a shower and put on a scent killer. You want to put this on because if the wind is pushing your scent to the animal, you will have a better chance of not bothering the animal. And if the wind isn’t pushing your scent the animal can still smell you. Things you don't want to be wearing perfume or cologne. You will regret it once you try.
Stealth is a great hunting quality. When you get out of the truck, don't slam the door. Just try to barely shut it. As you get to your spot you have to be quiet. No rustling leaves, pick up your feat. Or try and find a small trail to make your footsteps quieter. But you're gonna have to make some noise right? So a effect to the noise you make if you are lucky, maybe a buck will come out and give you a chance.
Animals the reason you came, right? But sometimes your main target is not to focus on when you can’t see them. If there are other animals in front of you focus on them. The way they act. Are they scared, suspicious of you or just fine? This is because animals rely on other animals to show if there is a predator or not. And if they find you they will be gone before you see them!
