New Hunter - No experience!

Recommended Posts

Good luck . Keep it fun. Practice shooting from a tree stand at various angles . Study the pictures in Jack's thread , keep your movement down, and play the wind to your advantage.  Also be obsurbant of how the deer reacts to being shot it can tell you a whole lot about how good of a hit it was and can be the difference between putting your tag on it or not. .learn from all your mistakes .. you will make many!

Welcome!  This rain will bring you good luck on your test.   Pics I just put up on another thread about 'how do you prefer to hunt?' should help you a little with natural blinds and ground hunting.  Do it right, and you'll have deer in your lap.  Deer don't look down anymore.  Good luck hunting, and I'm looking forward to another ground hunter to share stories with.

Haha and rain it did. Got lucky during my archery and shotgun field tests it was only drizzling but I passed no problem. And awesome, I'll check that thread out - thanks!
