there is a vast difference between "hunting" and "shooting." Many who buy tags and go after deer have come to think that siting in a box blind with a rifle rest is hunting. It's not IMO. Actual big game hunting involves moving very quietly through the woods and mountains using your eyes, knowledge and judgement; reading sign, learning the areas they prefer at various times of day/year, how they react to weather, how they move from one area to another (favored trails or geography), and playing that all against the fickle wind. Knowing how to read a map, the weather, adjust to other hunters, to go after animals is far more hunting than sitting in a blind waiting to shoot.TomKat said:StI like deer hunting, but I don't love deer hunting. From a shooting perspective, its not all that hard, compared to varmint hunting. The kill zone is huge.
Deer's are not all that hard to hunt and shoot.
Coyotes are a whole different story. Second favorite hunting, only surpassed by water fowling.
