As you prepare to head out to the woods on your next hunting trip, there are plenty of things to think about. With this in mind, we found an interesting list of hunting tips from the alloutdoors.com website. While the article is about deer hunting, we think you’ll find many of them of interest no matter your game! Here are three that you might not have heard before…
- As you pack your lunch for a cold day, make sure you’ll be able to easily open the packaging with your gloves on.
- If snow is in the forecast, consider chopping down several small trees ahead of time to create a food source that can attract wildlife after the snow falls. (Of course, make sure you’re on your own property if you’re cutting down trees – one of many great reasons it’s a good idea to buy your own recreational property.)
- You probably know to bathe before you go into the woods to eliminate scent from manufactured items like shampoo. But if you want to take this a step further, consider making and then using homemade soap from natural materials like jewelweed (checking to make sure those materials aren’t poisonous, of course).
