Good read.
You can fool some of the bucks, all of the time, and fool all of the bucks, some of the time, however you certainly can't fool all of the bucks, all of the time.

When I see pics of big penned bucks(educated guess here), like in this article, I don't put much stock in what they have to say......
A buck will see you three times, and hear you twice, but he's only gonna smell you once.

I have all of his Whitetail Hunter's Almanac's except for one's out of print. The Do It Yourself Bear Hunting Almanac is great too even if you hunt with a guide. Nordberg has great info and i really enjoy reading his stuff.

Here is a link if anybody is interested.......http://www.drnordbergondeerhunting.com/index.html#

Did you ever read his stuff Spysar? He is not a research guy like Charles Alsheimer using penned bucks since he got his knowledge from actually hunting bucks in mostly big woods environment. Who cares about pics.......did you ever try to get a pic of a bedded buck?

Minnesota I believe and sounds like wolf country for the most part.

Ok, I guess the pics are just pics. And no I never tried to get a pic of a bedded buck. The first paragraph of the article talked about a deer spends half it's day time feeding and half bedding? Didn't make sense to me. I like the measuring bed stuff. No I never read this guys articles.

And I'm leary of deer guys that are a "Dr"... :lol:

Yea I think it was 4-6 hours feeding and 4 - 6 hours bedded. That's only 8 - 12 hours. Lots of time in the day left. That struck me as odd. Good article though. Kind of general info.

He's talking about day time, not the whole day. But still very odd..

His Bio.........

Dr. Ken Nordberg is a full-time whitetail naturalist, hunting method researcher, outdoor writer, wildlife photographer, seminar speaker, teacher (buck & bear hunting school instructor), publisher, book distributor and Feature Editor for MidWest Outdoors, and Field Editor for Bear Hunting Magazine.
Dr. Nordberg has been an avid whitetail hunter since 1945 and an equally avide whitetail naturalist since 1970. Armed with knowledge and experience gained from earning degrees in animal psychology and natural sciences and from teaching and conducting research at the University of Minnesota, his decades of whitetail studies in the field were generally directed toward creating improved hunting methods, especially methods that would improve buck hunting success.

He has written 11 books, Whitetail Hunter's Almanac 1st through 9th Edition and do-it-yourself Black Bear Baiting & Hunting 1st & Revised Edition. Each of his best-selling deer hunting books provides scientifically-based information on habits and behavior of wild whitetails throughout North America and scientifically-developed, sometimes wolf-inspired, instructions for new and improved ways to hunt whitetails, especially adult bucks. Each book covers one or more different subjects evolved from his 35 years of ongoing field research.

I didn't mean to sound negative. His website looked interesting. I plan on reading a bit more articles he has. I've seen some of his books before.
