Deer Hunters Wanted.  

Oct 8, 2016

Dan Bayus is a dreamer. And a do'er.   He'd rather be shown than told.  Dan's theory:  Test the theory first and hyper-focus your shots. It seems Dan does this in and out of the field  and that's probably what makes him a great deer hunter and deadly archer.  Dan grew up in the land of Ohio giants and has recently relocated to Pennsylvania. Not surprisingly, even though he won't share exact locations or GPS co-ordinates, Dan already has a focus buck for the season.  Dan prefers to hunt this way: focus on particular bucks, understand that deer pattern hunters, and know that treestands are your friend.  To help him become a better archer Dan once spent time with a US Olympic Archery coach. That's what he means by hyper focus.   We learn from Dan how he prepares for each hunt, how he watches cold fronts, wind directions, barometric pressure,  and moon phases, learning buck tendencies, and late October strategies.  Notebook required.
