When it comes to deer hunting. Opinions vary as to what the best strategy is at times. The speed we enter and exit the woods is a common topic of discussion among hunters.
New hunters attempting to pick the brains of accomplished hunters find themselves bewildered at times. They can ask several hunters a question, and receive a different answer from them all. So, how do you find out what the best answer is? Sometimes the answer to a question changes with additional information. The style of hunter you are or become is dependent more on the information that you can apply, rather than what you have received.
The two most common hunting styles are stalking and stand hunting. Each one requires a completely different approach and mindset to get the job done. When switching styles, your strategy will often need changing, while there are also parallels. One such parallel is again how fast you should move through the woods. Where you are going and what your intentions are can dictate your speed. Your hunting style will change it also. Some hunters find that they are a much better stand hunter. While others feel more comfortable stalking. You must first know what and why you do something to determine the speed of travel. This means you must have first decided which style you are going to hunt.
