#105 - 50 Years of Hunting Journals w/Warren Womack

April 27, 2020

Warren Womack has been documenting his hunts in journal form for over 50 years. He can tell you many fine details of hunts that happened decades ago that most wouldn't remember just a few seasons later. Although he has lived in Louisiana his whole life he has traveled and hunted in 13 different states and spent over 1100 nights in his truck camper. He has shot hundreds of deer with a bow and it is evident that those have come from his expert woodsman-ship skills. 

Topics Include: 

-what details Warren keeps in his journals
-how to hunt primary feed trees
-mobile hunting in the south
