This hunter demonstrates an interesting and effective bowhunting trick that gets this bedded 5x5 mule deer buck up on his feet and offering a close range archery shot.
This hunter spotted a beautiful 5x5 mule deer buck while archery hunting in eastern Washington. There was only one problem though: the buck was bedded in a spot that would be difficult to access without spooking him.
Luckily, the hunter had an interesting trick up his sleeve that allowed him to get a close range shot on the deer.

Sometimes the simplest tricks are the ones that work the best. Obviously, throwing a rock will not work every time and it is most effective if the deer doesn't know you are there. However, it's still a good tactic to remember next time you're out in the field.
Part of this video was filmed using a Solvid head camera mount, which allows the user to film using either an action camera or a regular camcorder.
This system is perfect for allowing the average hunter to film their own hunts and is great for both big game and bird hunting.
