DSI: A Big Woods Buck

Hunting the big woods presents a special set of circumstances for deer hunters.

When the weather is warm northern forests can produce food that rival our best deer plots. Acorns, beechnuts and browse, coupled with lower deer populations, give mature bucks little reason to concentrate around destination food plots.

Managing deer in this environment requires a different approach: lots of smaller food plots and, as you'll see in the video above, a little cooperation from Mother Nature.
