As winter takes hold across the North, sitting in your deer stand soon becomes a fruitless exercise. Bucks are not on the move like they were earlier in the season, so smart deer hunters need to get on the ground and go to where they are.
Here are some good tips for “still hunting” – the practice of slowly, quietly moving to spots where deer congregate, while always being careful not to draw attention to yourself.
Among the tips listed here: Make sure you move into the wind, so deer don’t catch your scent. Embrace bad-weather days, because they work to your advantage. And focus on spots where deer are feeding at first light, then moving on to other locations with food sources as the day goes on.
Even though it’s getting cold in states like Minnesota and Idaho, it’s still a good time to look for a recreational property to call your own.
