    Before Your Go Bow Hunting

    Deer hunting is probably one of the oldest of man's activity in the history of our planet. Due to the wide spread of deer all over the world and the large variety of species, deer hunting enjoys popularity in many countries. Who hasn't heard of the famous whitetail in the Rocky Mountains? This makes the best game in the United States and North America in general.

    Before you go deer hunting, you should know a few things about the species that will be your game, as well as inform yourself on the special hunting regulations imposed by the associations managing the public hunt grounds. The equipment, the clothes, the permit, the weather and the vehicles used to reach the hunting area are just a few examples of what sort of information you should search for. Regional hunting associations can provide tips on all of the above and much more.

    Then, depending on where you hunt and what experience you have with this recreational activity, you may be a little confused by terminology. In some parts of the world the concept of 'deer hunting' is associated with the use of hounds, and followers on horseback; this is usually specific of the United Kingdom and Ireland. For deer shooting, the British use 'deer stalking' instead of 'deer hunting'. Nevertheless, 'deer hunting' is widely used in North America for all sorts of shooting or non-shooting expeditions.

    • There are several methods of deer hunting. 
    • Spot and stalk hunting involves spotting the deer and then following the game.
    • In stand hunting, the hunter waits in the areas where deer are most likely to appear.
    • Stalking depends on the hunter's capacity to track and follow deer trails and signs.
    • Still deer hunting combines the concealed pursuit of the game with walking quietly in its search.
    • Dog driving is one other type of deer hunting worth mentioning here. It relies on the use of trained dogs that catch the scent of the animals, find them and drive them out towards the hunter.

    Modern gear and supplies now allow hunters to get camouflaged in the environment using all sorts of blinds and stands to ensure a better shooting position. Deer hunting can be organized on private properties or on public land, and although it has the reputation of keeping the animal population under control, it still receives intense opposition from animal rights supporters. Like all the other forms of hunting, deer hunting has fired disputes on the issue of cruelty towards animals.
