It’s really nice to have someone to sit with in the deer stand. If you’re like me, you get fidgety and can’t sit still for long, which makes deer hunting a little tricky at times! I almost have to have my husband with me just to remind me to be still and quiet. Without him monitoring my every move, I’m sure I would always get busted by a deer before I even knew it was there. Usually, a hunter will spend hours and hours at a time high in a tree, so it’s great to have someone to make very quiet conversation with to help the down time be more enjoyable. Just make sure you don’t make each other laugh! Having a deer hunting buddy is also a great safety precaution. Unfortunately, hunting accidents happen every year and having a hunting buddy may help you avoid an accident or at least get you the help you need much faster than if you were alone. It’s also wonderful to share a moment as exciting as finally shooting a deer with someone else. It’s one thing to tell someone your hunting stories, but another to share your hunting memories with someone. So, if possible, always have a hunting buddy!
