CVC - Do you go on a guided hunt, public land, or do you have a connection out there?
Sounds like fun
Unguided on BLM land. I went with two other guys last year. One guy had been there before and the other two had not hunted antelope before.
I paired up with one of the guys that hadn't been before and we just sort of figured it out. I had watched alot of antelope hunts on tv so I had an idea of what to do.
It was a blast and I hope I draw again. My goat isn't a "book" goat, but it sure was satisfying to hunt on public land without a guide, spot, stalk and take an antelope. Truly one of the best hunts of my life.
There are times when the deer are simply not moving and you're forced to make something happen. Maybe you're up against a full moon or hot weather. This is when a silent drive to force deer to move should be considered.
By silent drive, you're not yelling and making a commotion to scare the deer. When deer are panicked, they're liable to bust out of the cover on a dead run, and any shot you get will be tough to make.
A silent drive is different. It means playing the wind to carry the driver's...
