Practice! Practice! Practice!

Practice frequently with your arrows and best bow. It is essential to practice in all situations you may be in while out in the field. This also includes going out while having adorned your hunting gear. Shooting with your friends in the backyard is good but it will not be of help when it comes to hunting in the field. Make sure you “practice the way you play”. This is where every small thing counts. In case you have a certain cap during hunting bow, make sure you have it as well during practice! Again, practicing in the off season leaves you with no doubt that if an opportunity arises, a clean kill is the only thing that will come out of it.


You should be able to spend some major time in the places where you are planning on hunting all year through. Scouting the area and making the decision of where a stand is to be put right before the season begins means your stalking skills will be poor as you miss out on a couple of opportunities to practice. Try to also take harder shots during practice because when it comes to the real experience, the shots will seem easier. If you are taking the shots while on a tree stand, practice and have a good understanding of the shooting angles you shall take during the hunt.

Lastly, you need to be able to tell the wind direction and ensure you always hunt upwind or across the wind. An animal that is downwind of you will be aware of your presence long before you learn of its whereabouts. Put more effort on skills outdoor so that you can become good at stalking.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
