Scouting and Hunting Strategies for Whitetails
CONCORD, N.H. – An all-new talk on deer hunting strategies may be just what you need to improve your chance for success this year. Seasoned outdoorsman Dave Priebe will offer his talk "Productive Scouting and Hunting Strategies for Whitetails" on Tuesday, September 28, 2010, at 7 p.m. at the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, 11 Hazen Drive, Concord, N.H. Admission is free. No pre-registration is required. The session wraps up Fish and Game's fall series of evening hunting talks.
Whitetail deer hunting in New Hampshire is popular, but can be a challenging activity. At this talk, you'll pick up some key knowledge of deer biology to help you understand deer sign and come up with a deer hunting plan that increases your odds of harvesting a whitetail this fall. Presenter Dave Priebe is a lifelong naturalist and a volunteer New Hampshire hunter education instructor; he's also a Quaker Boy Game Calls Pro-Staff member. Priebe's talk will cover the rut (the phases of male whitetail deer breeding behavior); scouting (the real hunt!) and identification of classes of deer in your area; hunting techniques and strategy during each rut phase; areas of greatest deer activity; and the effects of food, water, weather and humans on deer behavior.
