Sticking A Pig – Episode #278

Watch a south Florida wild hog hunt in GrowingDeer.tv episode #278.

Picture this: It’s the sixteenth century, in the area now known as southeast United States, adventurers are hauling hogs with them as a source of food. Today, offspring from hogs those explorers let loose are running wild, breeding like crazy, and are a competitor of white-tailed deer. Every year hogs gain more territory into the whitetails’ range. This is trouble. Hogs will kill and eat fawns, destroy native vegetation and food plots, and compete for resources with deer and turkey. Watch this episode as we put a couple of G5 broadheads through some Florida bacon. We also have tips on how to see if your property has healthy deer habitat.

A large flock of turkeys.

Tip of the Week:

Scouting Gobblers

Reconyx trail cameras have a time lapse feature.

Mount your camera high on a tree and use time lapse.

You’ll capture favorite strutting locations.

Smell that? Mmm, it’s roasting turkey.

Osceola Gobbler – Episode #277

Watch Grant’s South Florida turkey hunt in GrowingDeer.tv episode #277.

Boss Osceola Down! We’ve seen Long Beard XR work to 70 yards on paper. What about 10 yards, on a real gobbler? Ouch. Watch to see a boss Osceola run to the Miss Purr-fect decoy and start strutting. You can imagine what happens!

Spring deer hunt? …Well, no, but we’ve got an awesome spring challenge for you. If you want extra power to hold fall deer then have something your neighbors do not. Spring comes a little sooner in Florida and it was a great chance for us to plant a tree plot. Sugary fruits and nuts are powerful natural attractants for deer.

Tip of the Week:

Early season Osceola turkey.

Decoy Hunting Tips

Early Season: Toms fight for dominance. Use strutting tom, with a hen or two.

Peak Breeding: Tired of fighting? A lone hen looks real good to a big ol’ tom.

Post Breeding: Tricky to hunt, try multiple hen spreads.
