Default Re: Tips for a first timer...

I'm not really looking for input on what range to draw on a deer. I know where I'm comfortable right now and I'll stick to it. Anything further than 15-18 yds would not be an ethical shot for me currently. Honestly if I see 20 deer walk by me at 20 yds I'll let them walk. I also need time to observe deer, how they move, if my ground blind is worth a piss or if they spot me.

Looking more for practical tips. I have very little experience, most if my knowledge is from books I've read, videos, or message boards like this. I'm as green as they get when it comes to experience in the woods drawing on a deer.

A quiet bow trumps a fast bow every time, unless you can achieve both.

If you're hunting from the ground, it's a good idea to take a few test shots when you
first settle in (two, three flu-flu arrows are ideal). Doing this checks for clothing/bow
string clearance or that invisible twig, or that bow limb-catching branch above you, or that
noisy tree bark that rubbed off when you turned to see that deer that came up in back of you...
ask me how I know
