Dude, where were you twenty years ago when I first started bumbling around aimlessly in the woods without a clue on how to find deer, never mind how bucks use the terrain and wind to avoid encounters altogether?? Just watched most of your videos and am impressed with your thought process and attention to detail. Picked up a couple of good tips too! New hunters who want to be successful in the shortest amount of time possible really need to look you up.
Kudos brother!!

Your welcome. I've been hunting public grounds in Northwest Indiana since 2013 and I have to admit
I have taken the lazy man's approach for far too long. I start learning and using the Hunting Beast tactics
the last 2 years. Things are turning around, I hunted a new property this year and saw 4 Pope & Young bucks.
I shot a big old 10 pt. on Oct 4th, unfortunately the shot was high and went thru the back straps, little blood
trail and never found him. Going to reset for next season and scout / shed hunt end of February. I will be ready
next season to slay em' ! Keep the great content coming sir !

Thanks Robert. I really appreciate your generosity and for taking the time and energy to document, then share your experiences. Love watching your videos.

Like you said, nothing is 100%, but it's nice to have starting points and to validate what I'm seeing in the woods.

Thnk you sir
I try to hone in on people who either are just starting or are kind of lost in what they are doing.
The regular guy or gal with limited time.
people have responsibilities and lives outside of hunting.
the big youtube channels are really getting unrealistic and people dont realize they hunt and scout every single day.
a few always dont tell the whole story to keep followers coming back.
not to say they ate lying but , they keep some details out for a reason.
i try to simplify things and keep it real for the us regular people who have limited time and want to still have success in getting on or close to deer and probably older, better, bigger deer.
thanks again and keep on learning its all we can do.
