One of the most captivating aspects of whitetail hunting is tracking a buck on his home turf. Yet the reality is that most of us hunt in fairly small, heavily pressured areas where big woods tactics just don't work, which can be very frustrating. Thankfully, in Whitetail Strategies, Vol. II, Peter Fiduccia explains that tracking big bucks in these areas can still be done with consistent success using
a few critical skills. You will learn how to accurately judge a track, how not to pressure a buck into running into the next property or, worse, another hunter, and how to interpret more subtle sign left behind by a cagey buck.
In this comprehensive guide you will also discover how to track a wounded buck by examining the hair and blood left at the impact site, which can tell you where he was hit and what he will do next. Observing the injured buck's body language after the hit provides further clues for tracking, and each type of hit is discussed in detail along with a variety of essential tips for improving your tracking ability.
But this is not just a book about tracking deer - not by a long shot. Fiduccia also provides in-depth coverage on underutilized methods of deer calling. Understanding deer vocalizations and then mastering each call will without a doubt lead to more shot opportunities. You will be amazed at the results when you follow Fiduccia's simple guidelines for when, where, and how to call.
The wealth of other tips and tactics includes timing your hunts for specific days within the rut, reading complex air currents, interpreting the moon phase, and using unusual but effective decoy tactics. This is a must-have book for anyone who wants to see and bag more mature bucks.show more
