How Accurate Do You Have to Be Part 6 By Dr. Ken Nordberg The deer hunting method that most contributes to accurate and humane shooting is an advanced form of stand hunting which I call “Opportunistic Stand Hunting.” While using this hunting method, the hunter becomes very difficult for whitetails to identify, sitting quietly and well hidden by natural, unaltered cover at ground level, using a backpacked stool, or above the ground in a tree, using a portable stand, changing stand sites once or twice daily.

Posted by Michael Lecrenski on

How Accurate Do You Have to Be ­ Part IV By Dr. Ken Nordberg Have you ever wondered why some deer hunters seem to have all the luck, taking deer every year, some even taking mature bucks every year? Could this be attributable to better shooting? Some hunters seem to have the touch for this, rarely missing running deer or deer standing great distances away. Maybe a fast-shooting semi-automatic rifle or one of those range finders is the answer. Or could it be attributable something else, like the way they hunt? Some years ago, a group of hunters that hunted...
