Still learning from other hunters

I think one of the best ways to learn about hunting is by listening to others. If you like what you hear, you give it a try. If you don’t agree, keep doing what you think is best.

There are a few subjects I’m up in the air about. One involves light: Do red lights versus traditional white make a difference? I’ve read that a deer’s vision doesn’t pick up on red lights as well as typical white light, but I’m curious to hear what you think. I have both on my headlamp, but I’ll admit that sometimes I use the white light because I can see better. Am I making a big mistake?

Next topic: decoys.

What’s you opinion about deer decoys, and what decoy do you use and when? I’ve never used a decoy, but I’ve seen some hunters have success with them. My question would start with timing. Do you only use a buck decoy during the rut? Or pre-rut? I’d love to hear what you have to say about that subject.

Finally, I’m curious how many hunters out there have had success in the past rattling? I’ve heard some guys are putting down the rattling antlers altogether even during the rut, and sticking solely with grunt tubes. Is that a trend?

Please chime in and let me know your thoughts.
