Big Bucks in Big Woods with Paul Putera

Big Bucks in Big Woods with Paul Putera

DIY Sportsman  / 

Posted on October 28, 2020

Show Notes

Today's episode is a must listen for anyone hunting big woods areas or who deem themselves mobile hunters (or simply would like to become more mobile). Paul Putera has a knack for locating older bucks in the big timbered lands of the Northeast, scouting and hunting them down, and shooting them with a bow. Most of his bow kills are even from the ground.

Throughout the episode we do a hunt breakdown on his most recent Pennsylvania buck, and discuss some of the details behind his methodology and strategy. For instance, how does one actually still hunt a big buck successfully? How much scouting versus hunting time should you expect to put in? Is the pre-rut better than the rut? (spoiler alert: Paul says very much so for older bucks) We also talk about food sources and seasonal shifts from early season all the way until the end of the year, and how to employ tracking as a key skillset.
