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.
When there is a fresh cover of snow, forget stand hunting!!! Find a fresh track and fallow it.. Find a big footed buck and take up his track. Look for where he had started to browse, this is a clue he might be bedding soon. When you see this, slow down and get ready. Don't keep your eyes on the track, glance down and keep scanning from side to side. Go slow and be quiet.
If you loose your buck's track in with a bunch of other deer, make a loop around and look for his track coming out.
When tracking a buck, if he goes through some real thick brush(if not pushed by you), he may not have a very wide rack.
