Be your Own Childhood Hero, be a White Tail Deer Hunter

By: Razvan Jr

Becoming a whitetail deer hunter is every boy's dream, especially if he lives in a household where hunting is approved (even practiced) and seen with respect. Surely, the most plausible explanation would be the fact that whitetails are abundant in many wooded areas and people just like to go into the forest, prepare their cover and wait for a deer to come into range, and all this while taking full advantage of the natural panorama to relinquish piled up stress.

Whitetail deer are known for their non-stop activity, being active around the clock from dusk to dawn. Also, they have keen sense of sight, smell, as well as hearing, which permits them to stay away from predators and hunters and avoid any danger. Independently, these senses are imposing; and in mixture they go a long way in helping the creatures survive. Hearing is used to spot the presence of other animals, including human beings, close by. Smell is also used for this purpose and to help the deer select food. The whitetail's eyes are located to the side of its head allowing it to see almost all the way around its body.

Whitetails favor an area with varied food and cover types, including mixed-aged kindling stands. Perfect habitat will provide a mixture of forest, brush land, and cropland in blocks of one to two square miles. This means good news for hunters as they have numerous possibilities and chances to make a good stand in an area where deer are plentiful. Alternatively, in more harsh conditions or when you want to try something new, you may choose to hunt from a tree; but this will require a less comfortable experienced, often compensated by a more fruitful reward though.

Whitetail deer hunting is a sport of steel patience and perseverance, as results may come a little later than expected for a learner. Getting those first failed attempts to motivate you to go on trying and not making yourself feel discouraged may be synonymous to a promising whitetail hunting career ahead of you. While it may not be a sport that everyone can practice and really enjoy it, whitetail hunting is promise to bring you enormous satisfaction over the years, especially if you plan on catching that trophy buck everyone will envy you for when they see it hanging down your living room back wall.

In conclusion, although many say that it lacks sophistication and that it relies enormously on patience and dedication, whitetail hunting is today as popular as it can possibly get. But who knows? Maybe in a couple of years we'll be witnessing an absolute domination of this particular hunting branch among hunters of all ages. So why don't you make your contribution to this vision of mine by grabbing that rifle and orange vest and going for that first whitetail?
