#2 Hill country workshop Sunday March 4th

Postby dan » Wed Jan 31, 2018 12:26 pm

Due to the amount of people responding, and how fast the march Hill country scouting event filled up, We will be doing another hill country workshop on Jeff G's property in Minnesota on the border of Wisconsin Sunday March 4th. Me and Jeff will fill in more Details as it gets closer, such as start times and meeting places.

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 on Jeff G's hunting land.

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 up and down steep terrain in snow, thick brush, and mud.

We will be looking at how to tackle Hilly areas. How deer bed and travel the area, how to set up on these deer, and we will look at Jeff's actual set ups where he and his family members had success hunting this area, and discuss why.

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.


Cost will be $150 per person. We are going to try and arrange a meal afterwords...

My property is in Frontenac mn. Across the road is Frontenac state park which is thousands of acres and gets little no no hunting pressure. Tons of hill country with lots of areas tht are not accessible to hunting. Last 5 or 6 years has been antler restrictions and we have seen some giants grow up. A legal buck must have 4 points in one antler. Lots of hiding spots for bucks to reach a mature age. I have hunted this property for the last 25 years and have done very well. I know where all the bucks bed, how they use thermals and how they cruise nob to nob in the rut. Rut hunting is very easy on this property and I can show you How I set up and why.

Deer live on the property year round, they are use to some human interaction, but only in certain areas.

We took 4 bucks of the property in 2017. 158", 139", 125" and 120"

I can share my findings of:

1. Thermal tunnels
2. How bucks enter the low spot on a field
3. How bucks bed on the many points we have
4. Doe bedding
5. Overlooked spots
6. Stacking
7. low impact trail cam inventory
8. How we tag team the property in bow and gun seasons

Last spring dan and I were doing a workshop in pepin. We had time to kill so I took dan down to our farm to walk around. I took him they very quickly. Normally I keep my intel quiet, but I told dan we should show some of these examples to fellow beasts. They are very easy to learn from and might help you get in a hill country buck.

We will meet just outside of lake city, property is only 10 minutes away. Bring maps if you want.

Here are a couple pics of some of the bucks I have taken off our farm.
