Tuesday, September 29, 2009 -- Hunting the Whitetail Deer in New England. Don't miss this opportunity to learn how you can increase your odds of success hunting deer in the woods of New Hampshire. This session features Dean Vanier of NorthWoods Common Scents, who has more than 35 years experience pursuing whitetails in the New England woodlands. Born and raised in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom, Vanier's extensive hunting and trapping experience has given him an intimate knowledge and unique perspective on calling and scent hunting whitetails. The seminar begins with scouting tips and info on what to look for in the deer woods. Then, learn about the whitetail's most effective defense mechanism and how you can use this knowledge to your advantage. Vanier's surefire strategy is that by fooling the whitetail's ears, eyes and nose, you can and will bring deer to you. During the session, Vanier will break down each of the three phases of the deer rut and explain how the rut's progression dictates which calls and what types of scent to use. He demonstrates the variety of deer lures available, their intended use and how deer respond to them. You'll learn typical calling and scent hunting tips and get an introduction to advanced calling and scent hunting techniques. This seminar will give you a whole new perspective on hunting whitetails by calling and using deer lures.

Tuesday, October 6, 2009 -- Fall turkey hunting tactics. Learn all about hunting wild turkeys during the fall season at a free talk with registered New Hampshire Hunting Guide Dave Smith.

An accomplished turkey caller, he also will demonstrate various fall turkey calls. Smith spends countless hours in the woods chasing various quarry, but his love for eastern wild turkey hunting still tops his list.
