Technology is now a driving source that isn’t going to disappear into anything, at least, not now. Whether you are chasing technology or not, you can’t say that technology doesn’t affect us. If it affects our hunting world as well, along with things in everyday life. There are things like PS4, HD TVs, Apple iPhones, and self-driven cars, etc. If we were to list the things that are driven by technology, it would be an endless list. This also relates to hunting products as well.
There are so many latest companies with all the most recent hunting gadgets to help you to become the best hunter. Feels a bit like playing the game Monster Hunter on PS4. However, although I am not a hardcore gamer that plays third-person shooter games, I have to admit that hunting in the real world is an entirely different story. You can even get hurt during the hunt, so make sure you are geared up to hunt.
Accuracy of Taking Shots
The first thing that we will cover today is shooting. Shooting means shooting accurately to nail down a whitetail, not killing and missing the shot. Rifles and bows have been produced by companies and have made our world of shooting even more efficient than before. Some are really expensive, some rather powerful when you put it in your hands, but all of them are great to practice with. Buying a bow for practice with smoother draw cycles will lengthen the time taken to practice. These bows allow the owner to shoot with better accuracy. Rifles have never been slicker, and the minute you aim, you can explore comfortably. Shooting in shooting clubs and joining exclusive clubs that you can practice bowing and shooting has made hunting your whitetail down in minutes. As technology advances, a new young hunter can learn all the essential skills needed for hunting in a short period. That is why people should take advantage of technology and become the most active hunter out there. Not to mention bringing home some bucks during the high season. No amount of latest gear will replace practice, but the more technology there is, the easier it is to become a skillful trainer. You need to throw in time and money to invest and become the best hunter out there. Whitetail, here I come!
However, before catching a whitetail, you need to find your deer herd. Here, in the wild wild West, getting quality optics is a must if you want to see where the deer at. I remember back in my school days, and I used to get a headache every time I peer into the binoculars. But now, the binoculars no longer give my head spin. I do not need to take pills before I find my game. My optics save me a lot of energy because I don’t have to walk far distances to find where to get my whitetail marks. The more time I peer into the optics, the more game I find, and the more I understand my game. The optics will let us see the animals In a clear image, just like we are standing right there. Attach the cell phone to the scope, and then we will have the best gadget we can find. Excellent optics have aided us to get the best hunting tools that we need.
We need to bring bows, rifles, some knee pads, and optics. The less we bring to the field, the less tired we get by the time we need to start hunting. Make sure that you don’t bring too many things to the area if not the weight of the backpack will wear you down. You will be unable to focus on hunting the whitetail, and you might miss your shot due to fatigue. Make sure you bring just enough gear to capture but try carrying lightweight gear. You aren’t going to camp overnight in the woods, so don’t bring your whole room! It is preposterous to bring a 70lbs bag to hunt. I very much believe that if you bring that entire bag, the deer will run before you even have the energy to pop out the bow to shoot the deer.
Many years ago, when I was still in college, I remember wearing all the coats, flannels and thermals to keep me from the cold. Although it saved me on a slightly rainy day, it was uncomfortable to wear. However, I put up with it, and it felt heavy and bulky. It restrained my movement, and I missed a shot at the whitetail because of the heavy clothing. I learned a lesson, and I made sure that I only put on the necessary dress. Technology has made clothing lighter and more functional than before.
Safety always comes hunt in big hunting for whitetails. Whether you are dealing with bows, guns or knives, we are dealing with firearms here, and it is a pretty deadly world. It is very reasonable for us to be worried about the safety of our loved ones apart from ourselves. There are significant improvements in technology in terms of safety and firearms. Cell phones have improved. We now have tablets with Alexa on them. Like, “Hello Alexa, where is the nearest petrol station?” Even in the woods, near the roadside, I still have excellent phone service. The GPS phone device not only gives me GPS, but I can also always text my family with it too. Due to high efficiency, I don’t have to bring a phone AND a GPS device. You want to worry less about dropping the phone in the woods and just focusing on getting your game. Make sure to bring a first aid kit along with you as well. I have cut myself time again when I am hunting whitetails. Luckily, I never broke any bones or had any missing fingers. Almost killed my thumb though!
Technology is getting better, and it is helping us hunters to become better too. I strive to become a better hunter with the help of technology! Hope this article has helped you, time to get same hunting gear!!
