Ben and Larry make a living helping land owners improve their land on many different scales and have experience working on their own properties as well.

#141 - Hunting Deer As a Team! Ohio Muzzleloader Season 2021
01:31:16

Group hunting can be a great way to learn a lot in a short amount of time. Ohio’s four day muzzleloader season is a great opportunity for us to get a group of close friends together and hunt public land as a team. The advantage of hunting as a group is everyones combined experiences in a specific spot allows you to learn way more about an area than you could hunting alone. With more eyes on the area it is easier to understand how deer are spending their time in different habitat and terrain. In this episode, some of the group discusses the things that we learned this season and some of the things that we can improve on next year. Hopefully this podcast inspires you to find a group to hunt with because it sure is a lot of fun and a great way to learn about deer!

 

Topics Include: 

-group hunting dynamics -how we could improve efficiency  -stories of the big bucks we saw

They discuss a lot from the basics of thermals to specific setup scenarios and what they would expect wind to do in those setups.

#130 - October in Hill Country w/Keith Robinson
57:12

Zach and Keith discuss hunting in hill country during October and some of the things they have learned this season. Solid stands of timber and maximum foliage cover can be overwhelming when hunting early in the season in hilly terrain. Not only does it seem like deer can be anywhere but changing thermals create wind conditions that make it seem impossible to setup.  In this episode, we talk about our approach to finding deer in the dense forests of Ohio and some things were learned from blown setups. Keith also tells the story of how he setup on a bedding ridge in the first week of October and had a mature buck do exactly what he needed him to for a shot!

Topics Include: 

-reading thermals throughout the day -bedding shifts that happen throughout the month -the story of how Keith killed his biggest buck in the first week of October

Jordan Kurkowski is a successful hunter from Wisconsin who takes being aggressive to a new level.

Nathan Killen has hunted the mountains of Virginia his whole life and has had great success hunting close to mature buck bedding areas.

#117 - Finding the FEED TREE! w/Warren Womack
01:23:22

Warren Womack has been hunting large tracts of public land in the South for the majority of his hunting career. In these large, unbroken, tracts of timber he has spent many hours scouting throughout the hunting season looking for the hot sign he wants to setup on. Unlike the broken habitat of the Midwest, the south has much more potentail for bedding cover. Instead of hunting bedding areas, Warren's main focus is hunting "feed trees." In this episode, Warren talks about how to find these feed trees and how scouting in season has led him to a lot of success hunting public land in the south. Not only has Warren had great success from his many days in the field, he also has some pretty crazy stories of which he shares a few in this episode. 

 

Topics Include: 

-where to look for "feed trees" -a unique way to stalk deer in the timber -the story of the day Warren saw a UFO

One strategy is more of an investment for the future and the other is used to get information that can be used in-season to pattern bucks. In this episode, Zach and Jake talk about specific situations where they have used trail cameras to pattern bucks in-season and even more specifically during the "October Lull". They talk about how to setup these cameras, how to setup around them, and what NOT to do when using trail cameras. This discussion will hopefully help you know when to confidently dive into bedding areas and make aggressive sits during the early part of the season, based off of your trail camera info.
