    #232 - Overlooked Hill Country Buck Bedding!

    #232 - Overlooked Hill Country Buck Bedding!

    In this episode, Warb, Ted, Greg, and I talk about overlooked buck bedding tendencies in hill country. Hunting a lot of different areas over the last few years we have experienced bedding tendencies that often don't get mentioned in most buck bedding conversations. Often times buck bedding is described by specific winds and terrain features but in our experience in a lot of situations buck beds are not limited to those specific spots. It seems that bucks utilize different areas based off of food sources, wind, and cover and those areas don't always end up being on the leeward wind side of a hill on the upper third. 
    Topics Include: 
    -buck bedding bedding in ravines or deep ditches
    -bedding in thick cover vs open timber
    -wind speed and directions for hunting specific bedding areas

    #228 - The Camaraderie of Bowhunting from Minnesota Deer Camp

    In this episode, Keith and I talk to our new friends Mitch and Tate about their experiences growing up hunting in Minnesota. We tell a lot of stories, talk about their grandpa, who bow hunted for whitetails before anyone else in the area did it, bear hunting, wolves, and what is most important to us when it comes to hunting. One of the most enjoyable parts of traveling to hunt is meeting fellow hunters that are passionate about the outdoors so we have really enjoyed hanging out with Mitch and Tate! 
    Topics Include: 
    -do ozonics work?
    -wolves and their impact on deer populations in this area
    -the importance of spending time with family and friends when hunting

Most informative show on the planet!

I’ve listened to these guys for going on 4 years now and can’t get enough of it! They are truthful and legit!

Garet2108 ,

Please don’t

Good podcast but Zach if you’re not still hunting don’t say you’re still hunting. Still hunting is a specific thing and you always say you’re still hunting but when you explain what you’re actually doing it’s not even close to still hunting. You’re moving way too fast to be acting like you’re still hunting.

Love these guys
