Deer Hunters Wanted.  

Jul 1, 2017

Please Nominate Us Podcast Awards

Adam Hays III says that to kill a 200" buck, you must surgically remove them from the face of the earth.  This means planning, lots of planning. The first step is to actually hunt where a big deer lives. It's a simple strategy, but an essential one. Step two through the kill shot is a bit more complex.  Using the Red Moon phases of a product he created called the Moon Guide, Adam uses the high likelihood daylight deer movement days to plan his hunt in conjunction with a mental thesis of the buck he pursues.   Does Adam hunt the days when the Red Moon isn't present?  You bet. He says they are perhaps more important than the days of the kill hunt  - these are what he refers to as observation hunts.  Adam is also a fan of hunting the wind to the bucks advantage, hunting outside in, and learning which tree will become the kill tree.  Adam explains all these strategies in more detail during the interview. Notebook required.
