Different Tactics to Take Deer Day 2: Make a Deer Come to You

Editor’s Note: Have you ever considered making deer change their routes and instead come to you? Many hunters do this successfully to take deer by using the information they learn from their trail cameras.

Trail cameras have become one of the bowhunter’s best friends to see where deer are moving at day and night, determine the antler sizes of the bucks and learn how many and what types of deer are moving by the cameras. Then you can decide which bucks you want to harvest. But you may have trouble finding a tree that’s big enough or straight enough to hold a tree stand and that’s within a reasonable distance for your shooting ability to take the buck you want to harvest with your bow. However, with a lawnmower and a weed eater, like Jensen, you can cut a trail coming from where you enter the woods to the tree where you’ve hung your stand, walk in quietly and get into your stand quickly and silently.

Deer, much like some people I know, always want to take the easiest route from where they are to where they want to go. They prefer not to duck their heads to get under limbs and brush, don’t want their antlers clicking against tree limbs and do want to walk with their heads up to see, smell and hear better. If you brush-in the trails the deer are accustomed to walking down with limbs and sticks piled several feet high, the deer will take the trail of least resistance, rather than walking the old trail they’ve used in the past.
