- Small Game
- Large Game
Words of wisdom from Fred Bear:
- Don’t step on anything you can step over.
- Don’t look for deer, look for movement (and remember, it’s what they’re looking for, too).
- Always approach downwind. In the cool of the day, move uphill; in the heat of the day, move downhill.
- The best camouflage pattern is called, “Sit down and be quiet!” Your grandpa hunted deer in a red plaid coat. Think about that for a second.
- Take only the gear to the field that allows you to hunt longer, harder, and smarter.
- A rainstorm isn’t a reason to quit the hunt, it’s a reason to stay.
- Camouflage your appearance, your sound and your scent.
- Be sure of your shot. Nothing is more expensive than regret.
- Hunt where the deer actually are, not where you’d imagine them to be.
- Next year’s hunt begins the minute this season’s hunt ends.
