They can make a lot more sounds than most of realize. I have not heard that sound but the first buck I got with my bow was making a clicking sound like when you click your tongue. I’ve never heard it since.
The funny thing is I knew what it was from a field and stream youtube on deer sounds and I have never seen or heard anyone else talking about that sound.wolflb2ParticipantDecember 19, 2017 at 11:57 amPost count: 351
That first year I kept fine tuning my sights, during winter I had a bag hanging in my garage and a string hanging to shoot at from 6 yards. It helped, and I was scared to miss so I always had my bow directed at the bag during my draw. A good habit.wolflb2ParticipantDecember 19, 2017 at 11:54 amPost count: 351wolflb2ParticipantDecember 17, 2017 at 3:27 amPost count: 351wolflb2ParticipantDecember 15, 2017 at 1:16 amPost count: 351wolflb2ParticipantDecember 13, 2017 at 3:57 amPost count: 351wolflb2ParticipantDecember 13, 2017 at 3:52 amPost count: 351
Someone to show you the ropes.
What is your setup? Your equipment needs to be right but it doesn’t need to be high end.
You can do this cheap and effective.
Since you have a bow I will assume your arrows, sight quiver, etc are all a good fit for hunting. Then you need broadheads, everybody has a favorite but some choices should depend on your setup.
In 2007 I bought a Walmart Pearson bow. (I was 52) I started off on the ground sitting on a 5 gallon bucket that I had spray painted brown and gray. In the bucket I had camo burlap, clothes pins and a pair of clippers to cut off the tops of the weeds and branches. I bought a ladder stand that season too but split my time between the two. I liked both, I learned more on how and where to set up from ground hunting and more about deer behavior from the tree. One thing I really gained was confidence in ground hunting.
Don’t forget you need a knife and a way to split the pelvis. I had a big fixed blade buck knife and had to beat on that to split the pelvis. A saw is MUCH easier.
I learned a lot of valuable information that way so I would suggest that as a way to start your hunting. One improvement would be to add a leafy suit, they are pretty cheap.wolflb2ParticipantDecember 9, 2017 at 1:33 pmPost count: 351wolflb2ParticipantNovember 26, 2017 at 12:55 amPost count: 351wolflb2ParticipantNovember 22, 2017 at 1:38 pmPost count: 351
