Deer hunters hoping to perfect the hunt or just experience the thrill of it on video can watch a number of realistic deer hunting videos. Deer hunting videos can help hunters learn techniques from pros, whether it's how to call a deer or how to build a tree stand. In some cases, the deer hunting videos show average hunters making a big kill. Other deer hunting videos try to interest viewers by capturing the chase of a particularly big animal. Some hunters use deer hunting videos in the hopes of spotting that one technique that can make a difference in the hunt; others watch them purely for fun; and yet others watch them as novices hoping to learn the basics. Professional hunting DVDs are for sale over the Internet and at popular outdoors stores.
Amateur Deer Hunting Videos
Amateur videos are beginning to appear on the Internet, as hunters star in their own mini-reality television shows on YouTube and on other Web sites. Amateur videos are very popular, and appear on numerous hunting magazine and aficionado Web sites. These deer hunting videos are more likely to entertain than instruct, however. The ForemostHunting.com Web site has a list of some favorites. DeerBeards.com lists videos on YouTube of amateur deer hunters. Hunters can upload their own videos on Deer101.
