Deer Hunters Wanted.  

Sep 5, 2015

Some of us are so used to hunting the big woods that we overlook opportunity close to town. Granted, it might mean that you will have a visual of your vehicle from your tree stand and will need avoid a jogger or two, but big deer live and thrive in urban areas too. With the right set up, tactics, awareness, proficiency testing, and tags you too could take a monster buck not far from downtown. Dan Spencer takes us hunting in the parks around Des Moines, Iowa and tells about his whitetail blue print for success in urban areas.
