Check this book out!

This is a copy from my post in anything goes about this book:

Last year while I was at walmart looking for my muzzleloader equipment, i came across this book, picked it up and took 5 minutes and looked at it, instantly, it went in the cart with my muzzleloader equipment. I had saw it on the rack just before archery opened up, but didnt get to look at it. The book is entitled, "The Pocket Deer Hunting Guilde: Successful Hunting with a Rifle or Shotgun. By Stephen D.

The very last page has tips for using open sights.

This book helps so much! I recommend buying it the second you see it at walmart, which they had out before the first archery season opened (Last week in September) It gave me tips that i used last year, which greatly helped me with more success. It helped my nephew get his first deer while him and I went out last year for the JR hunt. Alot of the info in it you may already know, but it is still nice to have around for the just in case. If you can't find it at walmart, I am sure you can find it here online, but like I have said many of times, it is well worth the $8, which can put knowledge in you that you may use the rest of your life hunting.

If you go the websites of outdoor magazines such as Outdoor Canada, Field and Stream, Outdoor Life et al and search "Deer Hunting" you'll have a life time of reading righ there...not to mention this site. Here's a good start:
