Tips for a Successful Deer Hunting Trip

Tips for a Successful Deer Hunting Trip

 Hunting is enjoyed by men and women across the country. Even though it is no longer necessary for survival as it was many years ago, people still enjoy the thrill of the hunt. Learning to do so safely and responsibly is a valuable lesson that every first-time hunter should learn. Along with learning to hunt responsibly, there are a few things that can make the trip more enjoyable and productive.

 Take the Right Weapons and Clothing

 Choose your rifle or bow depending on the season. Many areas where people go to deer hunt have a bow season first and then gun season. If you are a seasoned hunter, you will already have chosen a favorite weapon. However, if it is your first time, talk to friends that hunt, and get recommendations on the type you will need.

 Hunting season generally starts in northern parts of the country in the late fall and early winter. It is quite likely you will encounter snow, and temperatures could get quite frigid. Ensuring that you have supplies including warm clothing is a must. A hat will help keep your head and body warm. Pants, shirts, and jackets, as well as warm socks, will help you to be more comfortable in the cold. An example of a company that offers hunting socks is Techspun.

 Choosing the Area

 If you want to have a successful hunting trip, it is a necessity to know where to go to find the deer. When it is possible, checking on them a few weeks in advance of the start of the season can help. It is not unusual to see plenty of deer before hunting season and all of a sudden, they disappear. Many people like to say they know when the season starts. Once the season does start, it is likely they move due to the increase in people in their area.

 Tracking the deer is easier when there is fresh snow. If you are not experienced at doing so, you need to remember, the deeper the tracks, the heavier the deer. When the temperatures drop, particularly overnight, it is more difficult to figure out when tracks were made. With more experience, it becomes easier.

 Of course, you will need to take a backpack with the essentials. Being prepared is one of the best ways to ensure that you have a good trip. Even experienced hunters can learn new things that help to make their hunting experience better.

Food Storage Recipe - Quick and Easy Ham & Bean Soup

This recipe uses canned beans for a quick, last-minute recipe. If time is not an issue, however, you can save a little more money by using dried beans. They will need to be soaked and prepared first, so just be sure to follow the instructions for preparation on the package.


3 carrots, diced

 1 onion, diced

 3 celery ribs, diced

2 cloves of garlic, minced

 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes

 4 (14.5-ounce) cans great northern beans, rinsed and drained

 5 cups chicken broth

 2 cups cubed, fully-cooked ham (you can make this vegetarian by skipping the ham - it will still be tasty!)

1 bay leaf

Salt and pepper

1. In a soup kettle or Dutch oven, sauté the onions, carrots, and celery in the oil over medium-high heat for 3 minutes. Add the garlic and continue to sauté, stirring constantly, for one additional minute.

2. Add the tomatoes, beans, broth, ham, and bay leaf to the kettle. Bring to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 40 minutes. Use water to thin the soup to your liking.

3. Add salt and pepper, to taste.
