I think they will all help you, but maybe start with swamp and if you like the content get the rest?

The hills are pretty small for the most part and training constantly pushes the deer around. After reading here though I feel like the swamp bedding video just has to much good info to pass on. I was thinking maybe 1. Hill bedding 2. Marsh bedding 3. Swamp bedding. What do you guys think. Keep in mind I am a rookie hunter.


I would buy all of them, you can learn something that relates to your area from any of them. I hunt a lot of flat farm land and picked up a lot of info from the hill country videos.

Thanks, Tom

1 and 2 will focus on the introduction and about bed hunting. They are not done yet. Yes there are more after 5... We are working on farm bedding, bigwoods, river bottom, and urban... AFTER THAT A RUT SECTION, AND set ups, and tactics in more detail.

Dan I wanted to thank you for the advice. I have swamp bedding and hill country bucks and have watched them both several times already. I do have one thing to ask though about ordering the other DVDs. I'm deployed right now and am not able to select an APO AE address to have them sent to. Can I input the address as a comment and have it shipped that way?

I have all four dvds and I hope swamp bedding will help me the most. I just moved to Dallas, TX from New Hampshire and it is very flat. There is only a small amount of public and of the public that's here Army Corps of Engineers owns most of it and they're flood control areas.

Is there anything in particular in the DVD that I should pay extra attention to? Some of the land is almost two hours from where I live so scouting trips need to be structured to make them count.

The whole DVD is non-stop things about bedding and setting up in that terrain that will help you. Its hard to pinpoint one specific area of the DVD.

It's so information dense. I have a tough time remembering things when I get out in the woods. :think:

I actually hear that alot. I get told at 1st its a little overwhelming but after the 2nd or 3rd time watching it starts to click. It really helps if your scouting after watching and can see the relation of what you saw in the DVD with what you see in the bush.

Howdy neighbor, sounds like u live pretty close. Bet u got a heck of shock when you got here and tried to find a place to hunt that didn’t cost a small fortune per season! There’s more public around the area that isn’t advertised as public. Plus there are a lot of good draw hunts u can put in for. The best large track hunting in the state is the Davy Crockett national forest. I’ve never stepped foot on it just going off word of mouth and kill stats. Just like any other state there are hidden gems around for the hunter who chooses to look for em. Good luck
Just remember if we get caught, you’re deaf and I don’t speak English.

Definitely shocking. I also like public land for what it is. I wouldn't turn down an invite to private but to figure out mature deer on public comes with its own set of rewards.

I'll put in for some of the draws and I read about postcard hunts as well. Trying to exploit all resource. May knock on a few doors to ask permission. It is hard looking at all this great land I can't hunt yet. Thanks for the advice. I really appreciate it.

The season closes tomorrow and will check out one of the areas next weekend. I don't see cattails or dogwood here. In New Hampshire we had the stuff you describe. Before I moved I started finding some beds but never got it together enough to set up successfully. Here the vegetation and terrain are a bit foreign. I have to believe deer behave the same way with different vegetation. I'm excited to get to figure it out though.
