Hunting is certainly a taxing, physical activity, and it takes stamina to be successful.
But what about the mental side of hunting? That is just as important, because it takes quick thinking and decision-making to make snap judgments when your target comes into view.
A post in Outdoor Life magazine offers some tips for staying sharp on your next hunting trip. And while some of the tips may seem obvious – get enough rest, plan ahead, know your equipment – there are less-obvious things that can be helpful.
- Don’t try to remember everything; use a notepad to jot down the critical information you will need on your trip.
- Don’t fiddle with your equipment when you don’t need to.
- And, consider taking well-timed naps to make up for those early mornings.
Another thing that can help is having your own property to hunt. Talk to a member of the Potlatch Preferred Network and have them help you find your perfect hunting spot.
May peace, happiness and prosperity be yours during

As winter takes hold across the North, sitting in your deer stand soon becomes a fruitless exercise. Bucks are not on the move like they were earlier in the season, so smart deer hunters need to get on the ground and go to where they are.
Here are some good tips for “still hunting” – the practice of slowly, quietly moving to spots where deer congregate, while always being careful not to draw attention to yourself.
Among the tips listed here: Make sure you move into the wind, so deer don’t catch your scent. Embrace bad-weather days, because they work to your advantage. And focus on spots where deer are feeding at first light, then moving on to other locations with food sources as the day goes on.
Even though it’s getting cold in states like Minnesota and Idaho, it’s still a good time to look for a recreational property to call your own. Call one of the members of the Potlatch Preferred Broker Network – they are experts in helping hunters buy properties that are a perfect fit with what they are looking for.
May the good things of life be yours in abundance,
at Thanksgiving and throughout the coming year.
