Post your aerial photos, topographic maps, and questions on our "Land
Management Forum", and let Dan, his Pro-staff, & the knowledgeable forum
members debate the best ways to strategically hunt and scout your public
or private land parcel. They will be quick to offer suggestions to
private landowners on how to improve their property with well placed food
plots, water holes, tree cuttings, etc. While I cannot guarantee that I,
or any other specific member will personally evaluate your property, we
will attempt to look at it as many as possible (time permitting).
Dan, will come out to your property and spend a full day scouting side
by side with the client. Dan will create an all-season hunting plan. He
will find buck and doe bedding, show the client exactly where the beds
are, when they are likely being used, discuss with client which beds will
likely be used on certain wind directions, exactly which trees to sit in,
how to access stands, when to hunt them, and explain how to hunt the
property based on all the SE factors and more. He will also discuss how to
improve the property based on the client's goals. Basically, you will get
inside Dan's head to see how he scouts and hunts on new property. He will
take the time to answer any questions. Dan will be available for phone
interviews concerning the scouted property and the developed plan for one
year, since the day it was scouted. Additional days $300 per day, 1/2 day
Travel charge of 40 cents per mile for anything over 50 miles
$149.99 Scouting workshops / Full day includes meal
Dan will take you to private and public properties that he actually
hunts. Show you where and how the bucks bed on these properties, discuss
why they bed where they do, what winds, how he accesses the property in
relation to the beds, exactly where and how he sets up. You will look at
some of his actual set ups, the buck beds, and discuss in detail
everything pertinent. We will look at different kinds of buck bedding
including looking at primary beds. We will look at identifiable land
features that promote bedding, and discuss how to recognize them when
looking at new land.
I can also get my stand set up out, and show how I set up my stand
quietly within close proximity to bedded bucks.
Currently I am doing workshops that are held 1/2 on a private farm, and
the other 1/2 the day in a public marsh.
This would be covering farm bucks and marsh bucks but will lightly touch
on Hill Country as well. If I can find a suitable Hill Country farm we
may do an entire Hill Country workshop later on. However, you will see
how elevation of small hills on a relatively flat farm effect bedding
just like on big hills.
At the end I would reserve some time to make sure everyone's
questions get answered, and to look over peoples personal maps and
give advice one on one. I don't want anyone leaving with an unanswered question.
