Bow hunting is not easy. One of the most difficult things to do is to get
close enough to the prey and fire that bow of yours. Nevertheless, once
gun season comes to a close you will end up being in that scenario one
way or another at one point in time when hunting. Hunting with a bow,
during the times when gun season is over is a daunting task. There aren’t
that many places to hide, because most if not all leaves are gone by this
time and the hunter needs to be cautious and experienced. Many hunters
try hiding on trees to be able to avoid being detected by their pray. The
most popular pray is deer, and deer hunting with a bow is an excellent
and rewarding pass time. Hunting deer with a bow gives the hunter an
advantage when doing so in a close area. Many experienced bow hunters
hunt for deer at pine forested areas where deer go to hide. Hunting in
such areas takes away the deer’s advantage, the advantage it would
normally have due to the bows limited range. It is best advised to find a
heavy trail leading into a forested area, an area with pine, climb a tree
that oversees the vicinity. Have in mind that the best range to fire a
bow is within a 50 yard radius. It is imperative that you find a good
spot to hide. Staying on the edge of this area will inevitably drive your
pray away. You will stick out like a shore thumb and will never get a
good chance to fire that bow of yours. Experienced hunters know well that
deer, especially during the end of the hunting season, are extremely
cautious when entering or approaching open hardwoods. Nevertheless, they
are relaxed and carefree when entering a pine thicket. A thick pine area
provides deer a good hiding place, it is close cover that allows them to
feel secure and don’t expect anyone to be there.
The hunter needs to stay alert at all times if there is a chance to kill
a deer. Every experienced hunter will tell you that in most cases they
hear their pray before they see it. Most of the time, hearing a sound is
what makes the hunter look towards a direction, towards the direction of
the pray. Being alert is very important for the hunt, especially when
hunting with a bow; more so when hunting in a wooded pine area. Deer will
be more likely to sneak up to the hunter in this type of area. They
occasionally snap a twig in pine thickets but could sneak up behind you
without making a single sound. That’s why many hunters prefer to have
hearing equipment with them during these kinds of hunts. When hunting
with a bow, you need to get up close so you will need a good advantage
over the pray. Aside from the hearing aide, the good warm cloths and
boots and hat the hunter should have a good fine tuned hunting bow.
