    Dropping Pins: Talking with Tim and Cory

    Dropping Pins: Talking with Tim and Cory

    Derek talks to two fellow WI hunters who have been in a group chat about deer hunting together for 5+ years.

    We start with some initial stories about learning moments in which Cory shares his mock scrape tactics for locating and hunting mature bucks on public land bordering private and a few lessons learned from chasing a true giant.  

    Tim shares a story about cutting his teeth hunting Northwoods deer in Lincoln and Oneida counties. He tells about a legendary buck named “Rome” who Tim chased for a few seasons and followed on his trail cameras. This buck taught him many things but one big takeaway was that mature bucks do their own thing and seldom walk the same trails as other deer, which saved this bucks life in one encounter. 

    We also discuss learning moments and important things to think about when hunting out of state and in new areas. Tim and Cory talk about hunting public land in Iowa and how to manage time and multiple hunting areas. 

    We talk about trail cameras and how hunters should try not to get caught up with chasing photos but use woodsmanship and scouting to help them focus in on possible locations to ambush bucks caught on camera. 

    We wrap up the conversation with Tim and Cory’s goals for this upcoming season.

    Dropping Pins: Intro and First Story from Derek

    Dropping Pins: Intro and First Story from Derek

    In this episode, Derek introduces Dropping Pins, where the idea was born and what we hope to provide our listeners. 

    Derek dives into his first story which outlines a very special location in the Northwoods of WI. This location was found by Derek’s father but quickly stolen and told was off limits to everyone except the week of WI gun season. This sanctuary technique paid off huge for 5 seasons and harvesting 5 bucks in the spot, including my first two mature bucks during midday hours. 

    We dive deep into specifics on this unique spot and how hunting in a very particular way helped Derek be successful and have many important learning outcomes because of this experience.

What a blast!

Great group of guys that you just can’t help but wanna hang out with. They are intelligent, funny, and business savvy which is the trifecta in my opinion. Great podcast fellas keep up the good work.

A great down to earth crew

These are hunters with families and jobs that talk about maintaining that balance and spreading advice for hunters of all levels to appreciate. I started hunting in my late 30s and gleaned so much knowledge from this crew that my seasons have been increasing in success each year.

Can’t eat the horns!!!!
