How to Hunt Bucks during Lockdown

MO-Urban-HuntDid you know that the best time to tag a bruiser could be the lockdown phase? Well, most hunters think the onset of the lockdown phase is the end of all the thrill and fun of hunting. However, it can be one of the most fascinating moments once you master how to hunt well during this period.

Any avid hunter understands what lockdown is all about. It is a term used to describe the time or the season when the rut is breeding. During this time the buck pairs up with a doe and breed a number of times within 24 to 36 hours. This is the time when he barely leaves her side. Most hunters think that this is the time when the mating pair tend to lie down and barely move. Contrarily, this is not the case. Even though the mating pair lie lazily, it is common to see them moving around the woods. The only difference is that the receptive doe tends to be a bit relaxed and does not run around like she does during the chase phase. She tends to browse as her suitor follows, waiting for another chance to mount on her.

During the lockdown, the deer tend to isolate themselves. As a hunter you should not hunt doe bedding areas at this time if you did during the chase phase. During this time move out to other areas away from the bedding areas. The best areas to hunt will be fingers of timber, small islands of cover, or ditches. These hideouts tend to be secluded but lie close to the bedding areas. They are also located away from the rest of the herd. Therefore they make a perfect isolation option for the deer.

During the breeding period, the bucks tend to stay with the same doe but still mate with more than one doe. They usually breed one and once done embark on the search for another one to breed. They go for a lookout on areas that are known to be  doe bedding areas so as to meet receptive females. The males move from one bedding area to the other, scent checking until they find a ready mate. They do this even during day time. Younger and inexperienced bucks can be seen in the open areas whereas the mature males stick to heavy cover when moving from place to place.

Proper understanding of the land you are hunting during the lockdown period can be a huge advantage when hunting a buck. If you clearly comprehend the common travel corridors and the areas of breeding, go for them when the conditions are favorable. However, you should be very cautious since the bucks tend to be more careful during lockdown. Their greatest weakness though lies in the doe they are shadowing.

Whenever you see a lone mature doe, chances are high that it is being followed by a buck. You should try to read her body language and figure out where the buck is. For instance, if she keeps looking over her shoulder, there is high chance that a suitor is right behind her. It will be up to you to avoid being detected. If she fails to detect you, she will bring out the suitor. You can get a lot of success with killing during the breeding period, more so, during the archery seasons. If she stands for a while and no deer shows up, evaluate whether you can get an optimal shot and take a shot. Avoid marginal shots, get her to drop near your stand and use her as a natural lure since a dead doe attracts many bucks. Nonetheless, you cannot try doing this during the dry season since the meat will get spoiled pretty fast.

It may never be exciting to hunt during the lockdown as it is during the chase phase. However, it can be one of the best times to bring down a big buck if you understand how to hunt well.

Shopping for Caliber Types

Shopping for right caliber types is also one of the important elements which influences your aiming a gun (21) and firing a gun (22)

     1. Considering both benefits and limitations of every type of bullet:

According to researchers of bullet and tactic, handgun rounds is quite weak and less reliable than bullet-placement. However, handgun rounds also has its own advantages so you have to know which caliber you are looking for to take full advantage of your shopping for caliber types.



     Penetration is an extremely important factor due to it is quite difficult for the internal organs and the nervous system of human to be hurt, if the bullet did not penetrate deep enough. According to the FBI’s research in 1990s, a credible bullet has to be capacity of penetrating at least 14-16 inch (35.6–40.6 cm). This number allows bullet to enter human being’s body under an optimal angle but it is still strong enough in order to reach the vital organs and spine.
     Permanent cavity is “a void” which is created by majority of bullet’s energy transferred on the fleshy part of target even you will see all of its surrounding destroyed tissues. You are able to determine the level of internal damage as well as the central nervous system thanks to the magnitude of permanent.
     Recoil is a subjective feature of each type of specific weapon without being the bullet’s own characteristic. Basically, the lower recoil is, the faster and more accurate your shot is. However, each individual will have a different feeling about recoil of a bullet. What is more, every gun will transmit recoil for shooters by different ways.

     2. Understand the caliber of most common bullets:

Nowadays 9mm Parabellum is the caliber of the most common pistol with relatively low recoil so it allows users to fire quickly and accurately. 9mm parabellum is an attractive selection because of the following benefits. For example, its capacity of magazine is usually bigger than others especially the low cost, great availability, excellent high pressure and good defensive feature.

     Unlike the quite low velocity of 9mm, 45 ACP utilizes the wide and heavy bullet. Its permanent cavity is also larger than 9mm about 40%. In terms of recoil, it is more serious than 9mm but the magazine capacity is lower very much.
     Besides 9mm Para and .45 ACP, 40 S&W is also another common caliber. Its energy transmits faster for creating the bigger permanent cavity.
