Buck hunting is about logistics. You can be the best hunter on the planet, but if you don’t have the gear and a plan to be where the deer are, no hunting skill can make it up. Today’s video is a good example of logistics:
Taking all the recon I’ve gathered on this hunt over the last six days, I took a gamble by giving up an evening and a morning to swap my road camp out for a backcountry horse camp. With a storm and below zero temps forecasted, I only had a few hours to put together all the gear I’d need for these conditions for what could be six more days of hunting. For a solo hunter, this task can be overwhelming. Luckily I have a Dad who pitches in every chance he can.
See if the lost hunting time and all the work of moving camp was a wise idea.
