Public land workshop March 17 (max capacity, sign up closed)

Postby dan » Thu Jan 11, 2018 10:46 am

Public land workshop... March. 17 2018



This workshop is limited to the 1st 25 people who sign up. We can go a little over if the last persons signing up are a group that exceeds the number, but as soon as we hit or exceed 25 it will be closed. Its going to take place in the public land that I hunt near my house. I have killed many big bucks in this stretch of public. Jeff G will assist in this workshop, and we will try to see if we can get Mario there as well. Both have hunted this area with me. Jeff Shot his Wisconsin gun buck along this stretch.



Its going to be about a 3 mile hike thru rugged terrain. Its not for someone in bad physical shape. We will take our time and go slow, so no worries, just want to make sure you can walk 3 miles in snow, thick brush, and cattails. I would ask that if you hunt this area of Rome marsh you don't sign up... I hunt here every year personally.



We will be looking at how to tackle large public areas. How deer bed and travel the area, how to set up on these deer, and we will look at my actual set ups where me and people I have taken hunting have had success hunting this area.



A lot of this workshop will be questions and answers. I encourage a lot of questions. They usually bring out the best in the workshop. Its an all day event. I expect everyone to arrive at my house around 8 to 8:30 am. There will be a meet and greet, then we will hit the gas station for coffee and potty break, then dive right into the public land.



Cost will be $150 per person. We had discussed raising the price this year, but ultimately decided to keep it the same, as I want it affordable for young hunters to come. There will be a meal at my house waiting for us when we get there...



Ok... Who is in?

I am very much interested as this falls within my time off of school. Debating on driving vs flying in as I am coming from Western NY. Can you please give me an address of where we will be meeting so I can weigh my travel options?

Thank you!

Put me down please.

Now I need to get a 24 hr shift covered, figure out flights, hotel and car rental! Here’s hoping all that works out.

Cheers!

Milwaukee is probably the best bet for an Airport. Madison is also an option.

Right on, I'm looking forward to it! You'll have to take it slow and bring all your patience...we're not the quickest.

When I went last year, dan sent a pm of where we were going so we could cyber scout it ourselves and compare it to what we found. He also looked over maps for guys too with Jeff.
