Deer Hunters Wanted.  

Oct 22, 2016

When it comes to deer hunting, we all need to start somewhere. We learn from our parents and peers, we learn from our hunter safety courses, we learn from our mistakes. Often times it's just a good 'ole seminar that helps us understand better the vast information that we are fed daily about deer hunting. And, due to listener requests for a show on the basics of deer hunting, we decided to meet up with our old friend Dave Priebe at New Hampshire Fish and Game. Dave presents two classes each year, one on the basics of deer hunting and one advanced course called Hunting Dominant Bucks based on the studies of Dr Ken Nordberg (Dave's advance course can be found here: ). This is a recorded seminar for those who are just starting out and what to understand the predator prey relationship a bit better before stepping into the woods. However, once you've had your dose of the basics, feel free to peruse through our back catalog for more advanced deer hunting techniques from some of the best deer hunting minds on the planet.
