Mapping Trophy Bucks
- Item #: 599
White-tailed deer hunters working public lands know the competition to bag big bucks is tough. Fortunately, there is a powerful -- and underutilized -- tool available to all hunters that can dramatically increase success in the field: The USGS topographical map. By learning to read "topo maps" and understanding how deer relate to their landscape, hunters can learn to consistently put themselves in a position to bag trophy whitetails. Author Brad Herndon explains the basic concepts of using topographical maps effectively and implementing sound terrain hunting strategies in this new must-have guide. From inside corners and double inside corners to the perfect funnel and mastering the wind, readers will get a better concept of using the wind and understanding topographical maps. Illustrations show details of how deer move, where the hunter should place his stand, and how to use the wind to ensure a successful whitetail hunt.
