Deer Hunters Wanted.  

Nov 26, 2016

More often than not, to hunt and kill the deer you have your sights on, takes far more than one day. For Neil Pendleton, the deer of a lifetime took much longer, 1489 more days to be exact.  It was all worth it and the journey was more of a lesson in whitetail behavior, reinforcing the concept of hunting smarter, not harder. Neil takes us on his epic journey with a New Hampshire buck, but he shares much more about his set up, how he learned to hunt, and what hunting urban New Hampshire is like compared to hunting the big woods of Maine.  And there's one thing Neil specializes in, and it is one of the reasons he routinely kills big southern New Hampshire bucks, mock scrapes.  The buck activity that Neil is able to produce around mock scrapes is astonishing. Neil tells us how he does it.
