Episode 13, Don't Waste Your Time Hunting... Scouting, timing, and optimizing your time in the field.

Chance favours the prepared mind.

Join John and Mike as they discuss strategies for planning the upcoming hunting season.  Topics include planning around the rut, the merits of patience, and not letting eagerness hamper your effectiveness. 

Mike lays our some dates of successful hunts to outline the importance timing can play, and just because its legal to hunt on a certain date, doesn't mean it makes the most sense.  What to hunt, Where to hunt, and When to hunt make up the framework for this episode.  Focused mostly on the Western big three, elk, mule and whitetail deer, they chat about when each of the ruts takes place and how you can capitalize on it.  Black bear hunting is discussed as an option for those eager to get out in mountains early.
