Deep-woods bucks spend their entire lives far from civilization and the stifling hunting pressure that goes with it. Heavy snowfall is the animals' greatest enemy, and winter yarding areas like cedar swamps, their greatest ally. If you've got the ambition, determination and patience to hunt a deep-woods buck, go armed with a reliable firearm, a good pair of walking boots, food and water. You'll also need navigation gear, such as a compass, an aerial photo and a topographic map. Then venture far from established roads and trails, and carve your path into the wild unknown. Deer here are few and far between, but the bucks are wide-bodied and wide-racked.
