Because it is very different tha. what you see and read about in his videos and books. In the hill ground in the north and western part of the state for the most part his tactics do work in my experience but when it comes to the flat big woods, flooded timber thickets you cant really compare it to anything up north and just have to do lots of scouting and move as needed to stay on deer.
This is kind of the key here, people need to look at Dan's vids and tactics and apply them to their woods. For years all I had was a marsh and hill video and I don't really have marshes and not much for hills where I hunt but you can bet I took what I learned and applied it to the land I hunt. Even the farm video can help a bigwoods or any hunter if they keep an opening mind and pay close attention to the details. I'm not out there scouting for marshes or other terrain so I can hunt like the marsh/hill guys to, I am looking for big bucks and where they live and then figuring out how to hunt them on my turf.
Austin....have you watched the swamp video? There are plenty of flat wet swamps here in Wisconsin. I’d bet that you’d be surprised with the similarities. With that said, deer are deer and you’ll find plenty of common ground with deer habits regardless of the terrain they’re living in.
No I haven't yet, plan to add it soon. All I know about swamps in that part of the country is the little bits I've read in threads on here and yes there are some similarities but also several differences to me, mostly in the size and amount of flooding. One wma I hunt here is about 34,000 acres and about 14,000 acres of it is flooded for duck hunters every november. Due to all of the hunting pressure it receives the biggest bucks are generally miles back in that flooded timber. I'll definitely add the video though, I'm sure it will definitely help in some situations.
