Outdoors: All one needs to know to hunt whitetail deer
Whitetail deer depend on smell, sight and hearing for protection against predators. We as hunters try many ways to hide from the deer in order get them close enough for a shot. To overcome smell, we wash our clothes in scent hiding soaps. We use products to mask our natural scents. We wear camo clothing so that we can blend into the surrounding areas we hunt. Lastly, we use calls to deceive the deer into thinking another deer is in the area. Sometimes this works, other times it does not.
