Editor’s Note: After locating properties with the potential to produce a trophy buck, you need to understand how to manipulate the habitat on that property to hold a trophy buck, how to find that trophy buck and hunt him, and how to successfully take that trophy buck.

Successful deer hunters, after they identify a lease they want to hunt, will set up a food plot and trail cameras to learn what sizes of bucks live on the property. Many deer hunters, once they lease land for the fall to hunt, plant their food plots in early July and begin putting out trail cameras as soon as those food plots are established. They then can learn whether or not any trophy bucks travel there during the day or only at night.

Having land to hunt that has woods in-between several overgrown croplands that have been taken out of production, getting permission from the landowner to plow and plant green fields in some of those overgrown fields and making that land a sanctuary for deer will draw deer there, besides providing additional food for the deer.

Determine never to hunt that sanctuary, unless you’re recovering a downed deer. Follow these steps.

  • Check with the landowner to make sure you can manipulate the habitat by planting green fields before you lease the property;
  • Select a green-field planting that can withstand droughts or floods;
  • Establish a portion of your property as a sanctuary where deer will feel no hunting pressure, which will give the deer a place to escape from hunting pressure where they know they won’t be harassed;
  • Use trail cameras to census the deer herd on the property you lease – putting out trail cameras during the summer months, so you can see the bucks’ antlers as they grow; and
  • Decide which bucks you want to take during the upcoming deer season. From trail cameras, learn the trails deer travel on when they’re moving.

How to Hunt Deer Like a Pro: Volume II
Deer hunting and deer hunters are drastically changing each year. To learn new techniques for hunting deer and have more places to hunt, I’ve interviewed some of the best deer hunters in the nation and share their tactics in How to Hunt Deer Like a Pro: Volume II.

In Chapter 10, Jacob Lamar tells you his tactics for consistently taking older-age-class bucks on public lands in several states. Chapter 11, Bob Walker explains how to find places on public lands where you can hunt that 99 percent of the other hunters never have considered hunting. The Bonus Chapter with David Ramey tells you how, where, when and with what equipment to take big Kansas bucks on public lands by hunting in 100-degree weather when others won’t hunt.

Chapter 13, Mark Drury, his family and his guests take mature bucks every season by having more small places to hunt rather than one large property. Drury explains the strategy of having satellite farms to hunt that only may be 50-150 acres each or less. Chapter 15, Pat Reeve, who hunts far-northern states and Canada, says, “I don’t like hunting for mature bucks until the weather is 20 degrees or less.” Chapter 4, Dr. Larry Marchinton says that funnels are the most-reliable stand sites to hunt for big bucks and tells why.
