Contrary to what the name implies, still hunting is the act of walking through the woods, slowly looking for game. It is slow, effective, and very hard to learn to do correctly. Once mastered, still hunting can be one of the most productive hunting methods is the whitetail woods.
The best way for two hunters to skid a deer out of the woods is with the aid of a sapling about 4 feet long and 2 to 3 inches in diameter. Cut holed in the deer’s forelegs through the skin and between the tendons and bone, just above the knee joints. Shove the sapling through these holes as the deer lies on its back. Tie the head, or antlers, between the forelegs against the sapling.
Each hunter takes an end of the sapling, lifts it until the deer’s shoulders clear the ground, and walks away with the deer. Only the rear part at the hipbones will touch, and though this may rub off some hair, no neat will be damaged.
