Observing whitetail behavior can one of the most rewarding parts of the hunt. It takes years of
experience, discussions with other hunters, listening to the old timers around the camp fire, and
countless articles and books to make you a successful hunter. One major aspect to success is
patience. How do you instill this in a young hunter? One way is to focus on watching the deer
without the pressure of actually having to harvest the animal. You will learn more about whitetail
behavior by letting them pass.
Whitetail Communication – Body Language, we call it “Whitetail Bingo”, is a checklist of actions
of deer in the wild. It is a great tool to get young hunters focused on what the deer are doing while
spending long hours in the stand. The objective is to make it fun to be in the stand and you can
actually score your progress. The more observations you make, the better your score, all while
improving the most essential behavior – patience.
To play the game is simple: print off the checklist and take it to the stand with you. As you observe
the different deer behaviors, check the sheet. You get a point for every behavior witnessed while
in the stand. At the end of “hunt” you tally up the points. Every time you go out, keep track of the
points. The point totals will start to add up as more behaviors are observed. What’s great about
“Whitetail Bingo” is that success is now focused on point total instead of actually harvesting an
animal. Try it out before the season begins, then progress once the season opens. The goal is to
increase the knowledge and patience of young hunters. In the end, they will be better hunters.
Guidelines for the checklist: If you had zero observations, you’ve had a tough day in the stand.
This can be a learning tool – where were the deer? That is why it is called hunting. This can lead
to new conclusions: maybe we have to pick a new spot, what about food sources, what was the
direction of the wind, etc. If you scored one to two points, it was a good day on the stand, as you
got to see some deer. If you scored three to five points, you’ve witnessed several deer, and from
there you can go over the time of year, what is happening with the herd, etc. If you scored
anything over five points, you’ve got a honey hole, and keeping the young hunters focused should
be great time.
Please give us feedback on what you think about the game. Please send comments via the
feedback tab on our website, www.ultimatedeerhanger.com. Some enhancements that are
planned for the future of the game is a short DVD showing young hunters these behaviors before
they hit the stand to witness them. Remember, to get the big racks you see on the hunting shows,
you have to be patient and know what the deer are telling you. Anything we can do to promote
the sport of hunting and conservation is our goal. Thank you for trying out the game and good
