Tips and Tricks.....

Recommended Posts

Great info. Thanks for the tips.

After the leaves have turned but before they have fallen, cut branches the right size to brush in your blind/stand. When all the leaves fall off the live branches, the leaves on the cut branches will not fall off and will give your spot more cover.

Another trick is to take the licking branch/branches from an active scrape and then attach it (using tie wraps) over a mock scrape that you've set up to lure/stop a deer within shooting distance of your trees tand in a different area.

scouting/topo's etc.....

Here is the program I use to do some scouting, you can use the tabs at the top to select different types of maps, and you can also pan and zoom as well, and if you select the topo tab at the top, you can zoom, and print topo maps for FREE!

hey guys i got a trick for ya... i gut a deer with a 2.5" blade... instead of breaking the pelvis when field dressing your deer, start out at the anus and cut around it as deep ad you can go into the cavity... then when you disconnect the esophagus and pull... everything comes right out... plus there is no exposed flesh to get dirty from where you would have split the pelvis.. AND you have more control over a 2.5" blade than you do a larger blade.... your fingers will appreciate that when you reach into the body cavity... :)

I use old pill bottles and cotton balls. Tie a string around the bottle and hang from a tree branch. When you're donne for the day you can cap it up to save it for tomorrow.;)

An old PA trick. 35mm canister, turn upside down poke small hole in bottom, put small twine through tie knot on end pull back to hole. Will hold canister upside down. Fill canister tightly with cotton balls, then scent and cap. You can leave these in the field if you hunt the same stands often by capping them on the way out, and opening them on the way back in. Never really used them myself, but alot of guys swear by this technique, esp using dom buck and doe esterous in different containers/areas. I personally drag line, or more often than not prefer to throw scent bombs out from the stand, gettem when I leave, makes alot less noise getting in then all the moving and noise of putting them up.

The 35mm trick does work pretty well. Fairly cheap as well. If all else fails you can always use what girls have to use once a month. Sounds nasty but works quite well! Hang from a tree and put your scents on accordingly.

The smartest thing my family has done as atrick is making a sent bomb out of cheap items. Ok so take a wooden clothes pin and put hot glue on one side and take a small camera film container (doesnt matter which color) and put the open end toward the part you squeeze pushing it into the hot glue to hold the container to the clothes pin. Then put a couple cotton balls in the container and add your favorite sent. Then cover the container with the lid. Take reflective tape and wrap around tthe container so on the dark nights you can recover your sent bombs. its actually an easy process.

Another thing I've found that works well is plain old' thumb tacks. I leave them on the cardboard they come packaged on and spray them with orange lawn marking spray. It glows like crazy when any amount of light hits it. I just press them into a tree about every 25 yards or so. They light up like a Christmas tree when you point any type of light source toward them. Just another idea.
