Hey Iam bow in washington I have never bow hunted before and was wondering if anybody had anyt tips and tricks for me Iam hunting in chewelah for whitetail deer and maybe elk and turkey any tips and tricks would help out alot
I suggest going into the whitetail section to pick up some tips too. As far as bow hunting whitetail, you need to do some scouting to figure out where the deer are within 20 yards. Unlike rifle hunting where you just need to be close, bow hunting requires a precise setup. Look for food sources, trails, pinch points funnels rubs and scrapes to get an idea where to put your stand. Make sure that it provides good cover for you so that you are not siloheted when in it and be sure to clear your shooting lanes to present a clear shot when it happens.
How many times have you wished for a better view across a clear cut, an agriculture field or down a powerline?
Ever wanted to get a little higher to try to get above a deer’s nose?
Have you ever wanted a taller stand because… well… just because?
Here is an example of a stand I made a few years ago and it has some very real advantages and a few disadvantages.
commanding view from the stand
able to accommodate two hunters, perfect for parent / child hunts
hunters are well...
