The key for still hunting is patience. Don't try to cover too much terrain fast, instead, search for spots and deer signs, afterwards move slowly; a good approach is two steps forward and stay still for 30 seconds, meanwhile look for deer signs: an ear movement or a flashing tail; you must be focused on the environment because all you will have is a tiny signal of deer presence.Obviously you won't cover too much terrain this way thus use such approach only when deer signs are present, otherwise move faster on open terrain but remember to keep the wind in your face as much as you can; if not possible, moving ahead keeping the wind diagonal to your face might also work fine, but remember to avoid as much as possible the wind on your back, otherwise deer will be aware of you much more before you can even think about their presence.
First thing to do is build up a contact net on the field; nobody is better aware about the bunnies presence than farmers; after all they need to keep rabbits away from their plantations and will be happy to provide you enough information to locate their little enemies.Once you have identified two or more lands where bunnies are living it's time to scout; usually covering a spot on one or one and a half hour and moving to another later; the best time to do it is at sunrise or sunset, when bunnies are more active and it's easier to locate them but not if you don't know where to look for.When out on the field try to think as a rabbit; where would you get hidden? Take a look around and search for thick covers; the more dense the bushes, more probably to find bunnies, but you must have a keen eye since most of time the only thing you'll see is a little bunny foot.A way to have an edge is going out for bunnies on cold, windy days; on such situations the poor rabbits insulation makes them move from one shelter to another, making easier to find them. Look for covers from wind, and snow and you'll find something interesting for sure.
Since they are so nervous, it's pretty difficult to get close to the covey, in fact warning calls will begin even before the hunter reaches 30 feet from the covey, if the approximation continues the birds will fly away a hundred of yards to regroup the covey. If the hunter insists in going towards the flock, same thing will occur once and once again in an attempt to discourage the human predator.Nevertheless if you keep going, sooner or later birds will change their strategy and will fly away one from the other to set down as singles, giving you a better chance to shoot one; however it's not an easy task since a close range shot is not easy to achieve.Hungarian partridges love to life on open landscapes and farmlands, hence a good strategy to catch them is to set at the end of the open field and wait properly covered until the get near to you. A good way to encourage the flock to get closer is using a beater to push the birds towards the hunting place where a good armed hunter with a 12 gauge shotgun will be able to knock down several birds before they realize about the trap and move away.
On many states it's allowed to use dogs to break flogs increasing the hunter's chance to call and intercept a bird; however to achieve a high performance on this technique, legal on most states, as well on any other regarding turkey hunting with dogs, it's mandatory to keep some details in mind.1. Choose a proper breedMany dogs are able to chase turkeys but the best breeds usually includes a cross between a pointer and a setter. Two of the most populars breeds are the Boykin Spaniel and the Appalachian turkey dogs which were raised especially for turkey hunting.2. Everything is about trainingIt's no reasonable to expect a good performance if dogs go out on the woods only during the hunting season, thus continuous training is mandatory. While most time is spent on the bushes, better the performance will be once the game begins.
You must sit down on a covered position and wait, wait and wait, usually squirrels will show up early in the morning or at the end of the day but no so long, thus very good reflexes are mandatory, specially after being monitoring the area from hours almost immobile.Once an squirrel shows up, you'll have to shoot fast as a lightning because it will not expend too much time outside, in fact the animal may get out just a few seconds, jumping from one tree to another very fast, giving to the hunter a very tiny chance to shot.
