Episode Date
#216 - Find the ACTION During the RUT! - Reading Rut Sign w/THP
01:09:32

In the last episode, we talked about reading sign during the early part of the season and into the middle of October. In this episode, Aaron, Jake, Ted, Nick and I pick up where we left off and talk about what "hot sign" we are looking for during late October and during the rut. What sign we look for during this part of the season is a lot different than what we look for earlier when the bucks haven't laid down as much sign. We discuss different situations where sign led us to the action during the rut!

Topics Include: 

-how our focus chances to scrapes in late October

-moving around to find the best action during the rut

-why we don't pay as much attention to rubs during the rut

01:03:10

Although we are always looking for "hot sign" throughout the season, what that sign looks like may vary greatly depending on where we find the sign and what time of the season it is. In this episode, Aaron, Jake, Ted, Nick, and I discuss different sign that we have found to find bucks early in the season. If you have ever asked yourself, "is this enough sign to setup on?" then hopefully this podcast helps you understand what sign is important to us in September and October. 

Topics Include: 

-how to tell how old sign is

-knowing when to setup based of of the sign you see

#213 - Increase Your Odds Of Recovering the Deer You Shoot w/Shane Simpson and Ryan Carpenter
01:18:47

In this episode, I talk with Shane Simpson and his friend Ryan Carpenter about blood trailing deer. Shane has a tracking dog and gets a lot more tracking experience than the average hunter by using his dog to help hunters that have put marginal shots on deer. Throughout these experiences tracking deer, Shane kept data about every track that he went on. His friend Ryan, organized the data to show what can increase your odds of finding deer that you shoot. We discuss these factors to hopefully help you have better success shooting and tracking deer! 

Topics Include: 

-what you should do if you make a questionable shot

-what broad heads give you the highest odds of recovery

-how your tracking impacts the dogs ability to track

#210 - Our Days at Hunting Camp w/Doug Ferenbaugh and Rich Meyer
01:46:43

Ever since I can remember, my Dad and our friend Rich Meyer have spent time hunting together every year at some sort of hunting camp.  I was lucky to have many great hunting mentors as a kid and along with my grandpas and dad I was also greatly influenced by the guys at camp.  Before I was old enough to tag along with my dad and his friends, I couldn't wait for him to come home and tell me the stories of everything that happened on their trip. Eventually when I was 12 years old, I started tagging along with them on their annual deer and turkey hunting trips and couldn't wait for the next one. Over the years I learned a ton from those guys and I'll never forget the memories we made. In this episode, Doug, Rich, and I talk about some of our best stories from the days that we spent at camp and some of the things we learned hunting together. 

Topics Include: 

-the positive influence that the guys at camp had on me and my friends growing up

-stories from hunting camp and past hunts

-the benefits of sharing camp with others and the hunting lessons we learned

#209 - Why We STOPPED Shooting MECHANICAL BROADHEADS!
01:21:37

Throughout our bowhunting careers all of us at THP have experimented with mechanical broadheads. In this episode, Aaron, Greg, Ranch Fairy, and I talk about our experiences shooting mechanical broadheads and what bad experiences ultimately made us change back to shooting fixed broadheads with heavier arrows. Along with our own personal experiences, we also talk about how we watched countless videos of deer being shot by the Midwest Whitetail prostaff with mechanical broadheads when editing footage when we worked there.  After watching hundreds of shots frame by frame we learned a lot about the potential problems that mechanical broadheads can have. We hope that by talking about our experiences we can help others become more successful archery hunters.  

Topics Include: 

-stories from mechanical broadhead failure on perfectly placed shots

-everyone's personal experiences with mechanical broadheads

-the pros and cons of mechanical broadheads

#206 - Mobile Hunting Camps for the Traveling Hunter w/Sam Soholt
58:59

Sam Soholt is a long time friend of THP. Sam and his brother Josh are huge advocates for public land and over the years he has built some of the best mobile hunting camps that I have ever seen! The first hunting rig that he built was The Public Land Bus which is an incredible  setup for big groups and also helps raise awareness for the protection of public lands across the country. More recently Sam built The Public Land Van. The van is a smaller version of the bus and is the mobile hunting rig that a lot of hunters would dream of having! In this episode, Sam and I talk about how he got the idea to build the bus, what our original camping setups were when we started traveling to hunt, and tips for how you can create your own mobile hunting camp!

Topics Include: 

-the bare necessities that you need to travel to hunt

-what we have done to improve our mobile hunting camps

-where you can camp on public land

#205 - Creating a Better Hunting Property By Managing Timber
01:40:45

My friends Larry Helmers, Ben and Keith Robinson have been working together on Larry's 80 acre property for the last four years to improve the wildlife habitat. The property is primarily timber and their management practices have greatly increased the number of animals that live on the property year round. When most whitetail hunters think of "land management" they think of creating food sources like food plots for wildlife. While this can be beneficial in some situations creating cover that is also a food source is a better long term solution to create a higher carrying capacity for wildlife. In this episode, the four of us discuss how they went about managing the timber and how the property went from being an average to below average place to hunt to being an incredible spot with multiple mature bucks, turkeys, and other game species living on it all year!

Topics Include: 

-making a plan to manage timber

-how improving timber stands creates more food for wildlife than food plots

-how to do a prescribed burn and the benefits it has for wildlife

#201 - Returning to Hunting As an Active Duty Military Member
01:15:43

Many people take a break from hunting throughout their lives for one reason or another. For some, eventually something sparks the interest to get back into it. That was the case with one of my best friends from high school, Connor Pickens and his buddy Jim. They both joined the Army in 2013, and with their busy schedules their time in the woods took a backseat. Recently, both Connor and Jim started hunting again after long breaks. In this episode, we talk about how they got into hunting, the challenges they faced trying to hunt while serving in the military, and how they ultimately decided to take the leap back into hunting. Whether you are in a similar position to them as an active duty military member, or someone who is just getting started hunting this podcast is for you!

Topics Include: 

-realistic expectations for new hunters

-the challenges and opportunities of hunting while serving in the military 

-the significance of camaraderie within hunting

#193 - Are Cell Cameras Messing with Your Strategy??? Season Recap w/Erik Barber
01:42:53

Erik "Slingin' Rik" Barber puts a lot of time into hunting public land whitetails throughout the fall. In the past, Erik has had the best success using run and gun style tactics where he aggressively hunts an area once and then moves on to a different area. This season he tried some different tactics, using cell cameras for the first time ever. In this episode we discuss the pro's and the cons of cell cameras, knowing your limits on how far you should be shooting at an animal, and situational calling tactics on pressured whitetails. 

Topics Include: 

-stories that make you realize how Erik got the nickname "slingin' Rik"

-the effects of cell cameras on hunting strategy

-why effective range can be different for everyone

#190 - Deer Drives in Hill Country - We Shot 3 Bucks During Muzzleloader Season!
01:44:53

This season was our third annual “Muzz Camp” where long-time friends of THP make the trip to Ohio to hunt as a group during the muzzleloader season. The first two years we learned a lot about this style of hunting and were frustratingly close quite a few times. This season we finally found success and knocked down three bucks in the short four day season! In this episode, Ben, Colin, Shane, and I all discuss some of the things that we improved this season and what helped us get opportunities where they have slipped through the cracks in the past. This hunt is one we look forward to every year and we can’t wait to try again next year! If you want to try some fun tactics with your hunting buddies, you may be able to take away some things from our experiences hunting as a team!

Topics Include: 

-what mistakes we made this trip and years past

-how Zach snuck into range of a bachelor group of bucks as a “driver”

-tips for hunting with a muzzleloader

#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!

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

#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

#123 - Aggressive Marsh Setups w/Jordan Kurkowski
01:14:35

Jordan Kurkowski is a successful hunter from Wisconsin who takes being aggressive to a new level. Through his never ending scouting, Jordan learns how mature bucks are using the marsh and then moves in for the kill. The difference between other hunters and Jordan is his aggressive setup is on the GROUND! Jordan has never shot a buck out of a tree stand and he believes hunting from the ground gives him more of an advantage to get close to big bucks that feel secure in their bedding areas in vast cattail marshes. If you are wanting to add new tactics to your playbook before heading to the marsh or swamp this fall you won't want to miss this episode! 

 

Topics Include: 

-how to pick spots on a map to scout -advantages to ground hunting in marshes and swamps -stories from Jordan's successful ground hunts in the marsh

#118 - Hunting BUCK BEDDING in the APPALACHIAN MOUNTAINS w/Nathan Killen
01:06:08

Nathan Killen has hunted the mountains of Virginia his whole life and has had great success hunting close to mature buck bedding areas. During the off-season, Nathan spends a lot of time scouting in areas he suspects there to be mature bucks and tries to figure out where they may be bedding. Once he finds these areas he hunts around the bedding cover which is usually on steep hillsides that are thick with mountain laurel. If you hunt any big timber or hill country bucks you won't want to miss out on learning from Nathan's success! 

 

Topics Include: 

-finding buck beds in the mountains -when to stay in an area and when to move on -backcountry hunting for whitetails

#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

#116 - How-To PATTERN Big Bucks with TRAIL CAMERAS! w/Jake Huebschman
01:10:59

THP uses two main trail camera strategies that differ greatly. 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.

Topics Include: 

-common trail camera mistakes -stories from past hunts that we patterned bucks with trail cameras -how to setup trail cameras in safe areas that can tell you where bucks are bedding
