AUGMENT WITH ACCESSORIES
Improvements in accessories also are making hunting easier. Foremost among them, especially when hunting deer, are scent controls.
“Deer seem to be more sensitive to the things around them than elk, so scent controls can help cover something new to the environment,” says Kevin Rider, owner of Rifle’s Timberline Sporting Goods.
Craig district wildlife manager Mike Swaro says maps and GPSs also are extremely useful when planning a hunt, allowing you to target specific locations. High-end binoculars, he adds, also are essential.
