How to Kill a Buck: Late September

In episode two of How to Kill a Buck, Mark Kenyon, Tony Peterson, and I discuss tips and tactics for tagging a whitetail in late September. Specifically, we cover how to hunt lifetime patterns of a buck, striking on opening day, and avoiding hunting pressure on public land. We even break down a piece of public ground in Missouri and compare how we’d approach it.
