Hunting will be more fun if we invite someone with us who can be invited to share tasks. But if you have to be alone, always make sure you bring adequate equipment and means of asking for help in case of an emergency. If you’re not accompanied by a guide, remember the hunting route you took so you don’t get lost. You can put a mark in the tree or memorize the hunting area, or you can use a map or GPS of the hunting area where to find deer. It’s also important to make sure the cellphone battery is always on.
Then, you should always pay attention to signs of deer on the tree trunk. Streaks and strokes can be an indication that there are deer that often pass. You are better off waiting near an area with many such signs.
Then, perhaps you can consider using a fragrance switch. Deer have a very keen sense of smell and hearing, so it’s best if you use perfume as an Aroma diversion. If you don’t use perfume, you can use baking soda. Mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda in liquid bath soap, then use it for bathing. This is meant to mask our scent when hunting.
Finally, attract the attention of the deer to the location where you are doing some scouting. You can use the Deer Summoner in the form of your voice, or use the Doe In Estrus scent you can find at hunting supply stores. Spray Doe Estrus in several areas where you are lurking. In some cases, there is a Deer that follows this scent until it approaches where you are waiting because this scent resembles the scent of male Deer pee in the early breeding season. The sound of horns clashing with each other can also be used to lure other deer to come closer.
