While stand hunting is likely the most effective strategy for whitetail deer, especially for novice hunters, there are other strategies that can be employed.
We recommend that brief explanations and illustrations for the following techniques be provided during a pre-hunt classroom session:
- Tree stands (discussion only)
- Still Hunting (discussion only)
- Deer Drives (discussion only)
- Spot and Stalk (discussion only)
These techniques are generally more advanced, and require more equipment, more skills, more land and/or more group coordination to be effective.
