Whitetail Deer season has come to an end here in the Adirondacks. So, until next year, we hunters will talk about the deer we got, the deer we didn’t get, and any improvements that we may (or may not) make to our gear, strategy, and success rate.
What has already come up in the conversation, and will continue to do so, is the story of these three trackers that bag big, late season bucks in the Adirondack wilderness. This story was featured in Field & Stream, an international hunting and fishing magazine a few years ago, but there is no doubt that these guys are still hunting the same way today.
These three guys wait until there is snow so they can see tracks, find a set of tracks that appears to be those of a large, older buck, and follow the tracks until they find the deer. The tricky part is obviously seeing the deer before the deer sees them.
Multiple days in the snowy wilderness, lots of experience and skill, as well as a long hike out with a 170+ lbs of extra weight really pays off for these guys in the deer that they take.
It pays off to be featured in Field & Stream too!
