5 ways to kill big bucks *

Five ways to kill big bucks
       1. Nasty Weather
Always check the weather before you go out hunting. The nasty weather will get the big bucks out of their beds and moving around to feed. During a hot sunny day, the big smart bucks will hold up under a log, stump, or brush to stay out of the heat. Also hunting in nasty weather can help you if you are stalking or trying to be really quiet. That reason is the ground is very moist and the leaves aren't loud when you step on them.

          2. Put in for other zones
                        Hunting in different states can change your perspective on hunting in California. There are so many different opportunities on killing big massive bucks outside of California. For example I was hunting in Nevada a couple years ago, and I was seeing 20-30 different bucks a day. Around here the majority of people will only see 2-3 different bucks a season. The success rate in different states can potentially be very high.

                       3. Hunting with dogs.
                         Hunting with dogs can be a huge advantage to killing a buck of a lifetime. Not only killing the buck, but helping you find the buck. Dogs can tell when a deer, or any animal is close by. Dogs will help push the buck out in front of you, and line you up for the perfect kill shot. The big smart bucks will let you walk right by them, if you are hunting solo. The dogs my family huts with are bred for tracking down deer, and treeing squirrels.

                      4. Scouting
                         Early season scouting is hands down the biggest tip for killing nice mature bucks. There are a few advantages of scouting before rifle season starts. First, you can pattern the buck from their sleeping area to where they are heading to feed. Big mature bucks like this have the same feeding routine everyday. When it comes to the season, you have done your research and you know exactly where the big buck is going to be. Second, is that the bucks will stay out in the open ground, and stay away from thick brush in the scouting season. That reason is because their horns are in velvet, and it hurts the bucks horns in the thick nasty brush.                                        
                     5. Tactics
                         Not only putting the work in, and hunting the extra mile, but having the right tactics in the mountain is very important. Having good scopes, cameras, guns, and gear will help you push the extra mile to kill the buck of a lifetime. Also having good rain gear, will help you push harder, and not give up in the nasty storm weather.

  1. I like how you arranged your information in this article. I can tell that you know a lot about your subject and I was surprised to learn that you should go hunting in nasty weather and avoid sunny days. I will definitely use this info in my future so keep up the good work!

  3. I like how you you knew a lot about hunting and about killing deer and such. For each way to kill a big buck you had a very detailed paragraph explaining it. It was very helpful that you included pictures in this blog. You always inform me with new facts about hunting!


  4. I couldn't have explained this any better. I've been very successful killing some mossy back bucks using these tips. I didn't have too much information of out of state hunting but your tips were very helpful.

  5. Good knowledge on buck hunting guy. I have buck hunted with you before and we always, always make sure sure we got that dialed in weather before we are out trying to hammer down on some yollie bowly bucks bud. It is a pleasure hunting with you and reading up on what you know. Keep up the work Holden.

  6. This is a very informative article if I were into hunting. I had not thought about some of this before and always wondered why hunters like to go out in bad weather. The tip about scouting prior to the hunting season makes good sense. I know a bow hunter who scouted for months before the season started, He agrees with this idea. Thanks for the information but I only hunt with a camera.

  7. I think you did a really good job on explaining the conditions and things to consider when hunting. I think you should write a blog post about Hunter's Safety. Often times, people will try to go hunting and not know the first about guns or laws. It would be a smart idea to inform at least this class about gun safety, hunter's safety, and explain a few of the hunting laws, such as why there are limitations and the rules about female deer.

  8. I really like to see how you go about your big buck hunts, but I would like to see more with other types of hunting such as a duck or goose hunting.
