Episode 118 – Buck at 14 yards

Two straight weeks I took a buck, so I was looking to get my 4th and final blacktail, this time with my bow. I talk about what I’ve learned, the importance of reflection to improve rather than running the same program, and what happened with that buck at 14 yards.

Episode 117 – Hunting Muskegs

It’s rut season for Sitka blacktail deer up here in Southeast Alaska so Ryan John and I talk about how to hunt southeast Alaska muskegs.

Rut Repost – Drop Shot Calls

Last year I visited the Drop Shot Calls workbench to talk about how they got started, what makes a good call, when you should call, how long you should wait and what works for them. We also talk about the right tools for the job, rut tactics, and the future of the resource. So I’m…

Episode 108 – Who is in charge?
