About This Quiz

Hunting deer is not for the faint of heart nor the inexperienced hunter. There is a lot of  preparation needed to execute a good hunt. Do you think you've got what it takes? Do you know what kinds of equipment or tools are the most effective? And most important of all, do you really know what animal you're actually hunting? Yes, that can get quite confusing, especially for beginners!

A good hunter knows how to estimate the animal that he or she will be hunting for. So part of that estimation is knowing just how the behavior of the animal changes from time to time. Get to know your target, first and foremost. Do you know how they behave when alone? Do you know how they move when stimulated? Can you sense if they can sense you? What do you think they will do if they sensed you? Can they actually throw you off their paths so that they can get away from you? Harsh and tough questions of life, for sure, but if you really want to be serious about pursuing hunting, especially deer hunting, then it's best to get ready and deal with such questions beforehand -- and prepare for the answers before going to the field.

So, do you think you already have what it takes to be a good deer hunter? Let's see about that with this quick quiz, shall we? Fire away!
