Elks have heavy shoulder bones, and an archer's arrow will not penetrate through the thick shoulder blade. But since an elk's lungs extend about 14 inches behind the shoulder, a bowhunter should aim about six inches behind the shoulder line to insure a safe lung hit, while missing the shoulder bone.
Beginning goose hunters often misjudge shooting range. Approaching geese that are gliding into a decoy spread appear to be much closer than they really are. Be patient and wait until the birds actually extend their feet to drop down before making your move.
When muzzleloading always be conscious of the need for a second shot. Have a pre-measured vial of powder, bullet and cap tucked into an accessible pocket. Experienced muzzleloaders can reload in about 30 seconds.
Good optics, from binoculars to your rifle scope, can mean the difference between spotting and missing game. It pays to buy high end optics. As long as you take good care of them, they’ll last for many, many years.
Do not hunt your favorite deer stand more than 2 times a week.
Pay close attention to the areas that bucks use during the early season. After the rut is over many bucks will return to these spots because they feel secure there.
Never dry fire your bow- it may cause permanent damage.
During the late September antelope rutting season, bowhunters can lure a rutting buck into bow range by using a decoy. Crawl within sight of a buck and his herd of does and then raise the decoy. The jealous buck will often come on the run and stop at 20 yards or less.
