Deer Hunting Season in 3, 2, 1…

Deer Hunting season is almost here! As you might have seen on Twitter, Hunters are pretty excited about it (ourselves included). I’m surprised #Deerseason isn’t top trending worldwide!

No matter if you are a bow hunter or a rifle hunter, you just want to shoot something. We get that. We have put together some good ol’ deer hunting pictures to get your excitement flowing just that much more.

Those antlers would look GREAT on the wall!

Of course, you also need to have some solid knowledge before you go on your first trip of the season. To make that trip a success, we suggest you visit Outdoor Life for some good deer hunting tips. If you are looking to go somewhere special this season, Ask Men has a great article on the Top 10 Luxurious Hunting Lodges for you to visit. And don’t forget your gear! The PCW3000 from Portable Winch is a great tool for pulling a deer from downhill, in a ditch, or in any other low-access areas. You can also use the Winch to hang your deer for dressing, moving firewood, and moving your Quad or ATV. Make sure you are prepared for the fun ahead!

Hunting Tips & Tricks

Who wishes they could be a better hunter?

That makes all of us. However, it is unlikely that any of us will reach Rambo status if we don’t take advice from experts or our fellow Hunters. Not everyone know everything, but every one of us knows something everyone needs to know. Right?

  1. DON’T GIVE UP. Just because you have lost site of the animal doesn’t mean it isn’t hiding in the bushes. If you injured it, make sure to check for a blood trail for a hint of where your game could have gone. If not, walk (quietly) to where you last saw it and look for any unnatural disruption in the wilderness – perhaps broken twigs or rustled bushes. Unless the animal was running, it is unlikely that it traveled far.
  2. PROTECT YOUR KILL. Make sure that when you hang your kill out to dry you make sure that it stays as YOUR kill.Other animals might try to claim it as their own if you let your deer stray too close to the ground. We recommend using your Portable Winch with a combination of pulleys and other hardware to do this successfully.
  3. ENSURE A CLEAR SHOT. If your strategy is to camp out in a tree stand, make sure you have nothing encumbering your view to where your hunting sixth-sense tells you the deer will appear. Take your spot, analyze all your views, and remove the branches/bushes before you start waiting for your victim.

  4. KNOW YOUR PRAY. Do you know where the deer you are stalking is going to be? Or how it is going to act? Deer like different locations based on weather, season, and time of day. Check out Outdoor Canada’s page on deer’s reaction to different weather for the upper hand.
  5. BRING YOUR WINCH. Make sure you bring along your hunting Winch to help move and hang your game, move firewood, and even pull your ATV or 4×4 out of a ditch (we’ve all done it).

There is so much information available on the web and from your hunting buddies. Try to seek out Hunting Forums as well for a large audience of knowledgeable hunters, and a small audience of non-knowledgeable ones. Some of our favorite forums are HuntingBC, Hunting Washington, and Jesse Hunting.
