Today on the show, I’m joined by MeatEater’s Janis Putelis to analyze his 2020 Wisconsin rut bow hunt and explore ways all of us can better learn from our hunts and unfilled tags.

Topics discussed: 

  • The dreaded November heat wave
  • Saddle hunting
  • The urge to tree hop
  • Scent control vs. wind direction
  • Deer sign and lack thereof
  • The importance of scouting
  • What to do with limited time and intel
  • Optimism and moving forward
