Online courses prepare you for a successful deer hunt

The key to successful deer hunting is preparation, and the most successful hunters almost always look at the pastime as a year-round pursuit that goes far beyond the hunt.

With that in mind, the publishers of Deer & Deer Hunting magazine have launched a series of “Deer & Deer Hunting Education” online courses.

In a news release, the magazine describes the education program as a one-stop shop for hunters of all levels looking to improve upon their skills and increase their success in the field.

Categorized by beginner, intermediate and advanced, courses explore topics that are most important for developing new skills or refining existing ones.

Topics include bow hunting, camping and survival skills, deer rut, hunting regulations and more. An expert in the field leads each in-depth learning opportunity and is available to answer questions by participants throughout the duration of the course.

All course components are set up so participants can work through the materials at their own convenience and at their own pace. Participants can log on morning, noon or night to read lesson material, submit assignments or post questions and remarks to the ongoing discussion boards. Course prices, which vary from $135 to upward of $200, include select hunting gear and instructional deer hunting DVDs and books, carefully selected by expert instructors to encourage attendees to continue expanding their knowledge after the conclusion of courses.
