With hunting season round the corner, you may have already planned your white tail deer hunting trip. So why not make it more exciting by organizing a deer hunting camping trip with your family and friends. This gives you an opportunity to hunt giant white tail bucks and also enjoy camping at the same time.
But first before you do this, there are few necessary preliminary arrangements that you need to make, to fill your outdoor activity with fond memories. Take a look at these 5 helpful tips to have a great hunting and camping experience.
I. If you wish to enjoy camping while hunting, make sure that your camps are situated far away from your deer food plots. A distance of several miles between your camp and hunting ground is most ideal. This will ensure that deer are not startled with your camping noise and smell and you have good chances for a kill.
II. Before you set out on your such a camping trip, see that you have all equipment including firearms, bows and arrows, safety belts, harness, binoculars in place. Also take care to safely place your equipment in locked boxes, when not in use.
III. When camping, it is important to carry sufficient food along with you that could last for some days. However it is advisable not to indulge in complex breakfast and have normal food instead. A well-cooked breakfast can unnecessarily add strong odours to your body, which can startle deer away. If however you wish to gorge on these meals, you must do it at the end of your hunting day.
IV. Deer hunting is a tiring experience and it could be several days before you find a prized head of a white tail buck. Hence it is essential that you are refreshed and completely relaxed every day. Ensure that your camp is set comfortably and is equipped with all necessary amenities.
V. Last of all before you set out camping, you should be completely informed about your state's hunting regulations. Children especially must be told of the importance of wearing orange vests while on a food plot and about not making noise while you are on a hunt.
