It’s easy to get excited by all of the buck sign in open timber deer habitat. Don’t make that extremely common mistake. John explains what to really look for. Public & Pressured Land Deer Hunter with John Eberhart.
Deer & Deer Hunting presents an online hunting show for real-world hunters who chase whitetails on public land and highly pressured private parcels. This series features one of America’s top public-land hunters — John Eberhart of central Michigan. Eberhart is a master bowhunter who has taken dozens of trophy whitetails over the years while hunting highly pressured lands throughout his home state and other locales.
Public & Pressured Land Deer Hunter with John Eberhart will air a new episode every Tuesday for 26 weeks on deeranddeerhunting.com, the DDH Facebook page and DDH YouTube channel. Every week, John will take viewers step-by-step through his process and strategies for researching, scouting, preparing and hunting mature bucks on highly pressured land. The topics he covers and the tips he provides in this exclusive hunting show will include how to select potential hunting properties, hunt pinch points, scout security cover and deer habitat, choose stand sites, interpret rubs and scrapes, scent control, gear and much, much more.
John’s tips and tactics will help white-tailed deer hunters anywhere in the country hunting on land with extreme amounts of competition. He can back it up with real-world experience, since he has never paid a dime to access any property, and never hunted with an outfitter, over bait or over a food plot. He relies solely on his scouting and time-tested strategies to get within bow range of mature bucks year after year.
While there are thousands of hunters with several-record book bucks taken in lightly hunted states or off spectacular pieces of managed properties, what separates John’s accomplishment of having 50 record-book bucks from 32 different properties (31 in Michigan and 19 from out of state) from any other hunter in the country is that he’s always exclusively hunted on public and knock-on-doors for free permission properties.
