“Do High Priced Deer Scents Really Work?”

By Marty Prokop

I am frequently asked, “Which works better, deer scent collected and made from a single deer or deer scents collected from multiple deer?”

In other words, when it comes to deer scents, is there a difference that results in more deer or bigger deer?

A deer hunter could spend a small fortune on deer scents. I wanted to know what kind of deer scents are worth my money.

Get Deer to Follow You to Your Tree Stand

By Marty Prokop

In the newsletter last week, I talked about cover scents. This week I am revealing how to use attractant scents to get deer to follow you to your deer hunting tree stand or deer hunting blind.

Scout for Big Bucks during Turkey Hunting Season

By Marty Prokop

Turkey and deer share the same habitats. Chances are if you are turkey hunting you will be hunting on or near your deer hunting land. Of course, deer season is not open, but turkey season gives you time to master your deer hunting land and increase your chances of harvesting a big buck or doe for the freezer come deer season.

Spring and summer deer patterns are very similar to those during the early fall, prior to the rut. When I am in the woods during the springtime, I scout and begin to pattern the deer on my deer hunting land for the early archery deer hunting season to come.

Muzzleloader Deer Hunting

By Marty Prokop

Do you want to lengthen your time in the field deer hunting?

My state offers a nine-day deer hunting rifle season. Although nine days deer hunting may seem like a lengthy season, I want to hunt more. Maybe you do too.

The solution? Muzzleloader season.

Most states offer a separate season for deer hunters who choose to deer hunt with a muzzleloader. In my state of Wisconsin, muzzleloader deer hunting season begins at the end of the regular rifle season. Click here to read this Deer Hunting Tip.

How to Find and Tag Late Season Bucks

by Marty Prokop

It is late season, and all you are seeing are does.

Though a doe for the freezer would be nice, you are looking to tag a big buck.

What to do When You Aren’t Seeing Bucks

Take a look at where you are hunting. What is the terrain like? Are you hunting in semi-open woods? Is your stand currently set up in gentle terrain with rolling hills?

Semi-open woodlots and a gentle terrain are doe magnets. During the rut you would probably find bucks in these same areas. With the main rut over and the majority of the does bred, big bucks are tired and need to rest. They will seek out thick, dense cover.

It may be time to move your deer hunting location. Click here to read this Deer Hunting Tip.

How to Deer Hunt the Best Private Land

By Marty Prokop
