Wayne's whitetail tips
The best whitetail hunter I've ever known is Wayne Pearson, worked with him for years on ESPN, asked him to give us some tips on whitetail strategies. When I started we didn't have cameras. We didn't have all the optics that we have today. And we literally had to do it and had to get closer and had to try to pattern. I prefer still to do it the old way to go. Scout, look for trails, look for feeding areas, look for where the deer are watering, where they're bedding, how they're routing themselves. I remember one thing, and this is very true, 90 percent of the game live in 10 percent of the area. If you can learn to figure out that 10 percent of the area, then you're going to be very successful and you'll find that deer prefer a route. And if something's different on that route, they see it. So if you go into deer habitat and you start cutting trees and you start moving things around and certain things, you better give yourself some time for that deer to adjust because they don't get big by being stupid. If you go into a hard wood area, then you look at what they're feeding on in that area. They love acorns, they love nuts.
