Well, it isn't actually a secret, you just have to be in the know to figure out what hunters are talking about. Do you have their lingo down?Do you know what to do when a deer "bleats"? What about when it "blows?" I am sure when you hear about bedding areas you might want to lay down and take a nap, but to a hunter, it means something totally different.

Some people get all their knowledge from books or the Internet,  while others learn by doing, with this quiz it doesn't matter how you learned your information, as long as you know the difference between a "rub", a "rut' and a "score" you will probably do fine. Just make sure you've got some scent control ready, then take this quiz to prove your knowledge.
