I love watching and learning from whitetail deer videos. I was watching some deer videos this morning and saw this one I thought I would share with you.
Deer videos can help you be a better hunter.
You can learn a lot from watching deer hunting videos if you pay attention to the details. Notice how this hunter doesn’t draw his bow back until the buck turns his head away from him. It is critical to draw your bow when the whitetail goes behind a tree or brush or looks away. This is a lesson I think that all bow hunters learn the hard way at least once when bow hunting. I like to watch and get bow hunting tips from deer videos.
Bow Hunting Tips
This hunter shows some extreme patience and it pays off watch and see when the hunter chooses to draw his bow. If you draw to soon you could end up holding the bow at full draw to long and have to let off on it while the whitetail can see you. If you wait to late you might not have a chance to draw your bow while the whitetail is in range and presenting a shot. So I like to imagine different scenarios where a big buck might approach and when would be the best time to draw my bow. Sometimes encounters with a big boy can happen fast and that window of opportunity can be small and if you have thought about it before hand you can make a quick smart decision that just might pay off when the moment of truth arrives. Almost nothing is more frustrating than getting that big boy within range only to have him bust you pulling your bow back. People who don’t hunt whitetails just don’t understand the preparation and hard work that goes into it. The opportunities at big bucks are so hard to come by and just don’t come around that often, so use all those bow hunting tips to help yourself be better prepared to get that big buck.
I remember a few years ago I was bow hunting in Georgia and I did a sneak on what just might have been one of the biggest bucks I have ever seen in the wild. I stalked up to about 20 yards of him feeding in a food plot and I had an easy shot. He was quartering away from me and had no clue I was there. The wind was in my face and it was a text-book stalk, all but one little detail. When I went to draw my bow back I didn’t realize there was a spike ten yards away from me in the corner of the food plot and when I went to draw my bow the spike snorted at me and the game was over. Needless to say I felt sick. Always pay attention to your surroundings and make sure there are not other whitetails nearby that can bust you drawing your bow back. Drawing your bow at the right time can be tricky but with a little patience and common sense you just might get that buck of a lifetime.
This buck was hit by a car leaving the property I will be bow hunting this year.
This is the bow hunting property I got permission to hunt.
Yesterday I got permission for bow hunting an awesome piece of property here in Kansas and I am super pumped and ready to go. And what makes it even sweeter is it is in my backyard. I have the okay to hunt 80 acres with a 23 acre soybean field that butts up to a 400 acre soybean field and a huge corn field and the 23 acre soybean field has a funnel of hardwoods that comes down to it and I can hunt the hardwoods as well. Last week I spotted four big bucks feeding in the soybeans and even though I couldn’t see them real good because of the distance and it was getting dark, I could tell one of them was going to be a shooter for sure, he was nice. I got them on video but they were so far away the video footage is not real good.
Last November my wife and my father-in-law saw a 200 class buck less than a mile from where I’ll be deer hunting, and my neighbor saw a huge big buck in the soybean field in the 23 acre field where I can hunt. Talk about pumped, I cant wait to go deer hunting. Heck I cant even think straight!
Ive started a list of things I need to be ready by the start of the season. My list keeps getting longer but my birthday is next week and my beautiful wife said she might get me the stand I’ve been wanting. I put two trail cameras down there on the field already and plan on putting a couple of stands up real soon. I plan on shooting my bow this week also. I love this time of year even if it is hot as heck, deer season and college football are right around the corner.
This just might be the year I get that Pope & Young buck I’ve been after. How about you? Are you ready to get in the woods and do some bow hunting like I am? It will be here before you know it.
I love to see kids getting outdoors bow hunting. I received a call back in November from my friend Brad who told me about a giant Missouri buck that had been harvested by a fifteen year old boy with a bow. A friend of his Shawn at work had called him and told him about it. Brad asked me if I would like to go over and see the buck and do a story about it on here. I told him I would love to do a story on it. So the next day my son and I drove over and got to meet Taylor and his family and they were kind enough to let me take some video footage of the Pope and Young buck and do a story on here.
The boys name is Taylor and him and his brother Tayden woke up a little late that day but got up and went out and sat on a log together and had been using a doe bleat when this monster buck showed up. Taylor made a great shot and harvested a beautiful once in a lifetime buck bow hunting. I unofficially scored the buck around 185 gross and 175 net. To harvest a Pope and Young buck of this caliber at fifteen is just awesome. Now I don’t know but I would like to see where Taylor’s buck ranks all-time of whitetails taken by a fifteen year old with a bow. I would think it would rank very well. Just a few days after Taylor harvested his buck with his brother Tayden watching, it was Tayden’s turn bow hunting and he took a nice eight point buck. Way to go Taylor and Tayden it looks like the future of deer hunting is in good hands.
Sometimes I think us hunters tend to complicate deer hunting to much with all the products and gadgets and everything and if we would just keep it simple we would probably see more bucks. I guess it comes down to being at the right place at the right time.
Congratulations to Taylor and Tayden on such a great story. I’m sure it is a hunt that you two as brothers will cherish and remember for a very long time. Being in the great outdoors making memories like this with family and friends is something that we should fight to keep and be able to pass on the great American heritage of hunting to our kids and theirs. There are many people out there who want to take away our privilege to hunt. We can do more to help protect wildlife and it’s habitat and it starts with us being good stewards of the land and being responsible ethical hunters. Awesome story guys thank you for letting me share it here.
