Hunting on the Snow. Critical Tips

Hunting on the Snow. Critical Tips

2. Remember to bring with you enough water and a good supply of high caloric feed and snacks. Being out there on the cold and snow consumes a lot of calories as well increase your water loses, hence failing to keep you hydrated and with enough energy to move around could end on problems; so be sure to bring with you all you need to guarantee a proper caloric and water intake, especially when you are planning to be outBlood Trail when Hunting on Snow several days. Don't jeopardize your safety!

Now that your gear and clothes are ready it's time to go for the game and there's a couple of thing you need to know to improve your odds:

1. Watch the high country. If there's snow up there, animals will move to lower elevations, specially big games, thus look for those areas with easier access to food and water (if you have previously scouted the area it will be easier to locate such places) and move toward them, your chances to catch something big will be good.

2. Follow the tracks. Every hunter is a tracker, in fact, tracking is an essential skill for success when hunting but when you are out on the snow the job could be easier. Tracks last longer on snow and rarely are deleted, thus you may follow an animal's track for longer distances, more than on any other condition; however there's a couple of things to keep in mind: On deep snow it's hard to determine the movement direction, thus it's easier to follow the tracks on the wrong way! Hence try to correlate the tracks with near food sources as well terrain characteristics in order to determine the proper direction to follow the tracks.

Bow Hunting for Rabbits?

Regarding rabbits bow hunting, essential techniques are almost the same than shotgun hunting but adapting everything to a shorter range since archers need to be closer to their games than shotgun hunters; thus if you know how to chase rabbits with a  shotgun, you'll be able to do it with a bow, of course if you have developed the necessary shooting skills with this weapon.


Rabbit Bow HuntingIn fact the main difference is on the equipment, but not only regarding bow/shotgun differences but also bow types. Most of big game hunters prefer long, composed material bows because they will have a longer range and a more powerful shot, however taking an instinctive shot with such bows is not the usual thing; moreover, long bows are inconvenient on tight bushy areas and both, hunter and equipment could get trapped  on the bushes before being able to kill a fast and agile cottontail running away from you.

Some Tips for Still Hunting for Winter Whitetails

The key for still hunting is patience. Don't try to cover too much terrain fast, instead, Still Hunting Tipssearch 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.

Rabbits Hunting Essentials

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 littleRabbits Hunting Essentials 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.
