Remi-Gents, I've been white tail hunting my entire life in TX/Oklahoma and this is my first year public land hunting AZ. I'm looking at purchasing a smaller toy hauler to bring SXS (so my and friend can get to trail heads and split from there) and don't really want to camp near other people. I prefer to camp out solo or with my hunting buddy. Is the trailer worth the hassle or are most people tent camping? FYI-I love both!
Hi Remi, thoroughly enjoy your show! Regarding your recent show on shot placement: I'm about 3 years into deer hunting here in NZ (red and fallow deer, mostly shooting a 7mm-08 caliber), and have read and been taught be hunters that I respect, that the most effective way to anchor a deer is a shoulder shot, in that the animal will be physically disabled and should drop on the spot, and that the bone fragments may also help with the destruction of the vitals. I understand that there is going to be some meat loss with a shoulder shot, but have always weighed that against the possibility of losing the animal if it runs some distance into the bush and cannot be located when hit solely in the vitals, which I have been warned against. Is this a bow vs. rifle issue? Caliber or even bullet construction issue? Thanks so much for clarifying! Cheers
Hello, my name is Andrew and I am a college student from the finger lakes region of upstate NY. Currently approaching the end of my second year of college two and a half hours from home, I have missed out on two fall whitetail seasons and two spring turkey seasons back at home. Having the constant drive to hunt and utilizing the diet that I do means I have to make good use of what hunting seasons I have access to in my current situation. Luckily I have access to some small sections of public land in close proximity to my college which is great. The problem is that these parcels are not only heavily hunted but also mostly all timber. I have studied onXmaps on my laptop through and through and usually make a good game plan to still hunt some ground. I like to consider myself somewhat stealthy in the woods but more often than not the deer see or hear me before i see them. Knowing you are predominantly a back country or open country hunter I know this is an odd question but do you have any tips to make me more successful in larger areas of mostly timber? Thank you.
