Snack Time in the Deer Woods

Send by email Printer-friendly version Share this

The importance of being quiet in the the woods is often overlooked when it comes to the little things and if you're planning to spend a day in the tree stand or blind you're going to need to eat. Avoid bringing noisy packaging material into the deer woods. Open and store food in zip-lock bags before leaving camp or home. Don't let the buck of a lifetime getting away due to a noisy candy bar wrapper or you crunching on potato chips. I often take sandwiches just for that reason. Good luck and pay attention to the little details!

Maybe slice up and peel an apple. I know the deer like apples and the smell might bring them in. LOL
