It’s no secret that successful deer hunting isn’t easy, requiring a combination of intelligence, practice and patience.
As examples of the difficulties involved in the sport, consider some of the challenges for deer hunters in the Southeast, writes Realtree pro staffer Michael Pitts in Realtree.com’s “Brow Tines and Backstrap” blog.
Southeastern deer are constantly on high alert. Swirling winds can give you away in an instant. And for hunters who are members of the Southeast’s many hunting clubs, it’s often no secret where bucks are coming through or stopping for food or water.
That doesn’t mean hunting in the Southeast or elsewhere around the country is impossible, though. It just takes careful planning, something hunters should strive to do in the off-season anyway.
At PotlatchDeltic, we know that having a home base for your hunting trips can give you an advantage over hunters who only come into the area during deer season. By having your own land to hunt on, you can have acreage that isn’t crowded. You can select prime locations for deer stands. And you can make the property more attractive for wildlife over time by planting food plots.
For recreational land owners, the advantages don’t stop within the confines of their property, though. With a place of your own, you can become an expert on the habits of wildlife in the surrounding area. It’s such an advantage when you already know where deer are bedding down and where they are going for food and water.
With summer around the corner, it’s a great time to start thinking about having your own recreational property for next fall and winter. Contact one of the recreational land sales experts in the PotlatchDeltic Preferred Broker Network today!
