Getting Started Hunting
We all need a little help. Whether you are a novice or amateur hunter, everyone appreciates a little advice. From deer to elk, moose, turkey and upland game birds we're into it all.
Check out our basic guide below and poke around the TIPS section for regular posted content.
We aren’t all ninjas… but we can sure try to be stealthy when it comes to stalking game.
As humans, unlike the animals we like to hunt, we got stuck with some of the worst hearing. Large game and most game birds have exceptional hearing, which is why it’s essential not to tromp through the bush like wild elephants. It’s ok to make some noise, the wilderness and other animals aren’t totally silent, but keep your steps light, avoid those dry twigs, don’t carry on full conversations and try to move in natural ways.
Not Stinking (Winding)
Of course what good is super hearing alone without super smell. If an animal gets a whiff of your scent it can be out of there faster than you can even think what to do. Watch the wind. Always hunt into the wind so that Mother Nature isn’t broadcasting your position to all the animals in front of you. Keep mindful of wind changes and adjust your path accordingly. As humans, to game animals we smell like danger. It’s always good practice to use scent cover ups and animal urine to mask your humanly demeanour.
When Is The Best Time To Hunt?
Animals move around at any time of the day. You could bag a big one at 6am, 6pm, noon, 2pm etc. On average, it’s a bit of a crap shoot. That said, there are some times of day that you are more likely to see game.
First Light, dawn, awful o’clock. For the most part, large game (deer, elk and moose) out of respect for their own safety, tend to feed during the night when most predators are sleeping. Ungulates are most active first thing in the morning as they finish feeding, or head back to where they are going to bed down for the day. Farmers fields, water sources or game trails are good places to set up for a morning hunt.
Before sunset, the large game start to get active again. They’ve had their naps and are ready to start getting their eat on. They tend to start moving around and use that last bit of light to find food sources. Hillsides that may offer that last glimpse of light, or farmers fields where there is an abundance of food are great places to set up for an evening hunt.
