When hunting local ducks that have been in the area for more than a week, it is best to keep calling to a minimum. Rely on soft quacks and feeding chuckles.
Always hunt with a friend for safety reasons. The saying "there's safety in numbers" should be held sacred. Also, if big game is harvested, a helping hand is always nice to have.
CHANGING CHOKES - Pheasant hunters should be prepared to change the choke of their shotgun as the season progresses. Open chokes are best for early season birds that are relaxed and holding tight. Heavily pressured, late season pheasant will run more and flush further out requiring tighter patterns.
A tuning problem may arise when shooting a release aid if your arrows have nocks of a larger diameter than the shafts. These nocks may hit the rest and kick the arrow, so you should switch to smaller nocks.
A good place to find a bear in the West is on open hillsides that green up first in the spring. Carefully glass these side hills in early morning and late evening for bears grazing on the new growth of grass.
The ultimate camo test: Here’s a great way to find out if your stand locations really allow you to blend in. Dress in your favorite camouflage and gather all of your gear. Have your hunting buddy grab a video camera and go with you to one of your favorite stands. Get set up in the stand just like you would if you were going to hunt. Now have your buddy walk all the way around your location, constantly filming you from all angles. Have him film you from close range and from 50 yards out. Have him film you doing all the things you do when preparing for the shot, such as drawing your bow. Now go home and put it on your TV and turn the color off (put the TV on monochrome setting). You’ll be shocked by what you see - amazed by how visible you are from certain angles, and by how little movement it takes to catch the eye. Learn from these things - this is what a whitetail deer sees when it looks up at you! Let us know what you learn from this test.
Swimming ducks only sit motionless when they are spooked. Nothing sets circling ducks on alert more fully than a perfectly motionless spread of blocks. You can add life to your decoys on a still day by using a tip-up decoy on a string or by simply kicking the water up with your feet when the ducks are swinging away.
DISAPPEARING WITH THE FLUSH-Quail hunters can get very frustrated when single birds cannot be found after the covey flush. Give these scared birds some time to relax and move around again. This will allow them to spread more scent, making them easier for your dog to find.
