New hunter needs help!!

Postby pimpdaddy » Sun Nov 19, 2017 3:42 pm

Hello I bought some Land in Marshall Co. Ms in April I wanted somewhere safe to take my kids hunting. But I’ve only went hunting a hand full of times and never seen anything when I was younger. Y’all got any tips or ideas to keep my kids into hunting they’re 7 and 4. We put out two feeders and cameras back in the summer and got a bunch of pics. But I don’t have a clue what I’m doing. Thank you

The best advice I can give would be to have an experienced hunter take a look at the land, cam pics, and everything. Do you have many day pics? Am or pm most? Do u know where they bed?

The pics are all through out the day mostly 6-7 am and 4-6 pm is when the pics had more deer on them. Up to 6 at one time. No I don’t know where the are bedding. It’s a 50 acre lot I’ve not walked all of it mainly just the property line to hang posted signs and survey ribbons. It is heavily wooded and grown up. Thank you

Welcome aboard. There are some very knowledgeable hunters in here. I agree with Chad, you need an update experienced hunter to lend you a hand. But it sounds like you have a great property.

One thing I would suggest, maybe next year after season goes out is to learn your property. Where the hardwoods are, where the water is, where the funnels and draws are. Being familiar with the property makes a big difference .

As for your kids, ease them into it. Go sit for an hour or so the first time and work your way up. Leave when they start to get fidgety. Make it as enjoyable for them as you can.

Take along some games or something to keep them occupied when the deer aren't around...and get each of them their own set of binos. Haven't seen a kid yet that doesn't love a pair of binoculars. Cheap Walmart ones will work great.

And 3 turkeys come wobbling through also. I know of one small creek the runs on the back. Not sure what hardwoods look like but there’s a lot a acorns on the ground around the small creek. We were looking at deer tracks but there’s a bunch going every direction.

If you're seeing some and seeing tracks, that's a good sign. For this season, I'd go with your pop-up blind and maybe try to pattern them a little. Biggest thing is just enjoy being out there. The kids will pick up on it and will learn to enjoy being out there too. Once the season is over you can start working towards next season.
