It’s easy to get excited by all of the buck sign in open timber deer habitat. Don’t make that extremely common mistake. John explains what to really look for.
John has 31 bucks in the Michigan record book from 19 different properties and another 19 P&Y bucks from 13 different properties on his 22 out of state bow hunts and has co-authored 3 instructional bowhunting books and an instructional 3 DVD video series.
While there are thousands of hunters with several-record book bucks taken in lightly hunted states or off spectacular pieces of managed properties, what separates John’s accomplishment of having 50 record-book bucks from 32 different properties (31 in Michigan and 19 from out of state) from any other hunter in the country is that he’s always exclusively hunted on public and knock-on-doors for free permission properties.
