Stalking whitetail deer can be one of the hardest hunts to pull off, but with some practice it can be done.
Stalking whitetail deer requires you to pay full attention to all the elements of a hunt at one time. You have to factor in wind direction, scent, sight lanes, noises you hear, sounds you make, and much more, all while you are actively stalking.
To do this successfully requires a lot of skill, practice, and, let’s be honest, a little luck. Check out this video to see a very successful example of stalking whitetail deer in Texas.
