Keep Your Feet Warm When Hunting

Keep Your Feet Warm When Hunting

Hunting in a cold weather is no picnic and the best way to avoid it is to wear multiple thin layers, use some hand warmers and wear some wool socks.

But it’s not enough at all and when you go shopping you know by now, unless you’re an entry level hunter, that a good pair of hunting boots may be the key for a successful hunting in the late season, but it can also ruin everything.

Seeing this, let’s take a closer look on how and you need to choose right your hunting boots for the winter.

Keep your feet warm

For many of us, feet are quite often the first body part that gets cold. This happens a lot more when you’re tree standing hunting as a metal platform amplifies cold in your feet, just as a much as a bow would do for your hands.

As you’re going to move a lot when hunting, it’s fundamental for the winter boots to fit you right. Once you sit down, you may want to lose them a bit so that you improve your blood flow and, therefore, to feel more comfortable. When you’re hunting in a pop-up box blind, chances are you’re even going to feel warmer if you’re taking off your boots altogether. If you’re feeling a lot better every time you’re taking off your boots, there’s also the chance for your boots to be too small or that your socks are too thick for the boots too.

What about socks?

If you’re not used to hunting in the cold weather, you may be tempted to put on the thickest socks that you can find out there. Some unexperienced hunters may even put on a second pair of socks for keeping cold at distance. Apart from the circulation getting slower, the lack of moisture wicking is brutal and your feet get damp within minutes. And it’s only a matter of time until they turn to ice while sitting in your tree stand.

It’s important for your socks to keep you warm, but it’s far more important to wick moisture away from your skin. Some fibers are more efficient when it comes to keeping the skin dry and insulated than others. You may have heard by now about how wool is great on that, but you may have other options too.

Choose wisely your boots

The boots are the most important barrier between the elements and your most cold-sensitive part of your body so choosing them right is essential for a good hunting in the late season.

Give it a thought when choosing your hunting boots and keep in mind that not all high-end boots are especially designed for the cold weather. You want your boots to be waterproof and well insulated, instead. Don’t forget about the plug-in boot dryer that may help you keep your boots nice and dry, not to mention scent-free.

Try not to fall for the “thermal rating” of the boots either as there are many things involved when it comes to cold and not all depend on the quality of your boots.

Your boots have to fit well and to remain dry, no matter how the weather gets. “Freezing out” takes many forms and it’s you to decide what works the best for you.

7 Tips for Tracking Better

Deer hunting is great and the more you learn about it, the better you get at it.

Scroll down for some useful tips that aren’t just going to help you track better, but also are going to give you a clear idea on hunting strategies.

  1. Take care of your shooting lanes

If you decided to use the tree stand, the first thing to do is to practice more shooting positions for various directions, as animals may appear from so many. You also need to remove the branches in the line of fire and to decide which position requires minimum movement from you to turn anywhere you want. Don’t forget about the safety strap as you also need to be secure while moving.

  1. Clear the ground blind

For those of you using a ground blind, it’s important to sweep away leaves and brush around so that the zone is clear of forest debris. This is going to lower the noise as well.

  1. Remember to glass

if you’re using binocular first thing in the morning, you need to move to your vantage point in the dark. Glass over the most anticipated spots, but also refocus your attention on places that you’ve already checked. As the light changes in the morning, you may see animals you hadn’t seen earlier as they moved from their night shelter.

  1. Remember the spot

When you’re hunting in a brushy area and you drop your prey at a distance, it’s important to keep in mind where it stood at the shot. It’s fundamental to identify exactly the spot so that you may pick up the blood trail.

  1. Follow the blood trail

Keeping quiet while tracking is also essential. Pay attention to your quarry as it may be just in front of you. When you’re not hunting alone, stay in touch with the other hunters with hand signals. Use some toilet tissue to mark any spot of blood so that you get successful on your hunting.

  1. Pay attention to the “instant drop”

Sometimes, an animal may run some distance and then fall down, whereas some animals drop at the shoot and run off afterwards. Either way, an animal dropping at the shot may be doing so because of the shock, but it can recover and escape. So watch out when your prey drops immediately as it may stand up and flee within seconds.

  1. Always look for the blood

Don’t focus only on the ground when you’re tracking your wounded quarry. You also need to check on the sides of trees, the grass heads or stems of brush too. There are many clues when tracking and you need to raise your eyes off the ground for not missing them.

4 Tricks to Try when Deer Hunting in the Summer

Hunting on a warm weather isn’t as bad as you may think and it’s always worth to try it, even if the weather is going to be rather hot. An early season hunt and an opening day are always fun and you wouldn’t want to miss it because of few sweats. After all, no matter how hot it gets outside, deer still need to eat, right?

If you want to have a nice hunting when it gets hot, it would be a good idea to take a quick look at some tips as they may help you when out there, all sweaty and thirsty.

  • Put on the right clothes

You don’t need to give much thought into it as it’s quite obvious that if you’re not feeling comfortable in your clothes, you’re not going to be feeling all springy and free to move either.

It’s important to put on a base layer and some shorts when the weather gets hot. Some warm-weather crewneck and a pair of lightweight bottoms that wick efficiently moisture. You don’t want only to minimize risk for bad odors, but also you want to remain cool and fresh when it gets incredibly hot.

Some low-profile boots, a pair of mesh shorts and a pair of socks may give a few laughter to your hunter friends, but they’re going to keep you comfortable and dry all day long, causing the envy among the other hunters.

  • Watch the sun’s path

It’s important to know a thing or two about sun and its movement when hunting or spending a lot of time in the outdoors. During the colder months, you may have to look on the south and southeast facing ramps. Once sun comes up, it warms a lot easier the sides of the hills and ridges and deer like to soak up the sun when it gets colder. During the warm weather, the situation goes the other way around.

You have to stay on the north and northwest facing hills as they tend to be more shaded throughout the day with temperature remaining pretty cool.

When deer go from their summer coats to the winter ones, they try to stay as cool as possible and looking for the cool spots is what you should have in mind while hunting.

  • Stay hydrated

No matter how much you like coffee and energy drinks throughout the day, try to stay away from them during the hot weather and only try water instead.

Staying hydrated while hunting in the summer is fundamental as it’s not only minimizing your risk for passing out, but it also helps you focus and plan your hunt more efficiently.

Hunting implies tracking, gutting, dragging and hanging so you do need a lot of energy for that and you can’t have it when you’re dehydrated.

  • Focus only on evening hunts

Some hunters don’t really go for the evening hunting during warm weather. If you pay attention, you get to see that as the temperatures climb to above normal, deer activity minimizes a lot. Deer aren’t big fans of the warm weather and they may leave their food sources in the morning, before the sun going up. As temperatures get higher, deer don’t like staying in the field and they are going to get to the food sources a lot more in the evening.

Try to locate a water source as deer are going to be thirsty, eventually and wait patiently.
