#123 - Aggressive Marsh Setups w/Jordan Kurkowski

August 31, 2020

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

#118 - Hunting BUCK BEDDING in the APPALACHIAN MOUNTAINS w/Nathan Killen

July 27, 2020

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

#117 - Finding the FEED TREE! w/Warren Womack

#117 - Finding the FEED TREE! w/Warren Womack

July 20, 2020

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
