Whitetail Hunting: The Secret Behind Success
You may have read a lot about whitetail hunting and performed dozens of hunting trails and be still unable to reach the mastery required to become a top level whitetail hunter, with several bucks on your record.
And that' because you have been focused only on theory and practice and even when that's necessary, it's not all about it; in fact that's only one half... the easiest one.
Because to achieve the full set of what's required to become a top level whitetail hunter is not found on blogs, texts or websites, neither on the field while you are hunting, unless you are aware of it.
That's because the other half is about behaviour and habits; and that's achievable only when you propose yourself to work on it day after day, for years.
What really makes the difference between a good withe tail hunter and a remarkable one is the way to do things, paying attention to details and proceed consistently over and over again, that way you always will have good results because your acts are those required for a particular situation ever.
So, first thing about behaviour is to keep always eyes wide open and register even the tiniest detail.
It's not enough just to see a buck or a group of deers when you are scouting; a lucky newbie might see them too, but did you realize about the exact time you found those deer?, from where was the wind blowing? It was on a high pressure o low pressure area?
Every single detail, no matter how meaningless it seems, will count when you bet for consistency and repeatability.
Here we achieve a second behavioural characteristic of top level hunters: Hard working.
Because only after long scouts, detailed data collection and a lot of hiking you will gather enough information to catch the best buck ever!
If you think that a couple of scouting days is enough, you are on the wrong way. In fact the top rated, highly successful whitetail hunters expend more time scouting than hunting... and why?
Because they need to gather as much information as possible, identify predictable patterns and find the best places to shoot from; and that's only possible after many scouting hours.
By doing this work they are less dependable of a lucky encounter and odds of finding a big buck are higher because when a top level deer hunter is out for a killing, he knows exactly what so look for and where.
Finally, no matter how much you scouted and how much information were able to gather, if you miss that once in a lifetime shot, everything you did before will be worthless.
So you must be ready for the ultimate shot, EVER! And that's possible only if you practice constantly. Not only during the hunting season, but ever!
Top level hunters know their gear as their hand palms. Every detail, every function, how to aim, every tiny details about their trigger, everything! And practice a lot!
Daylight, night time, hot weather, cold conditions, a top level hunter practices all year long in order to be accurate no matter outside conditions.
So, keep your gear and apparel up to day and practice as much as possible all year long; that's an habit which will pay later, and much!
Now, repeat all the aforementioned habits, change your behaviour to complete every one of the above actions automatically and consistently to become a master.
If you do so, after no much time, you will become a top level hunter; afterwards with time and more experience, you only will get better and better until becoming a legend.
