This past weekend I hosted a Field Day at The Proving Grounds. Folks from 14 states and New Zealand attended. It was a great time of sharing, learning, and fun.
We toured a good portion of The Proving Grounds stopping to discuss food plots, timber management, road management, pond establishment, stand placement, etc. Saturday night I presented a seminar and the 2010 Hit List showing the top 20 bucks this year that we’ve photographed at The Proving Grounds. Afterwards everyone had the opportunity to shop at Bass Pro Shops in Springfield, Missouri, the #1 outdoor retailer in America, with a special VIP discount pass.
The attendees had a great opportunity to visit one on one with several well know members of the outdoor community and makers of products commonly used by hunters and deer managers. This was a great learning event and everyone seemed to enjoy the chance to visit with other hunters and deer mangers.
That’s one aspect of deer hunting I always enjoy, learning from other deer managers. Deer hunters from all walks of life usually have one thing in common – a love of all things deer. I look forward to applying some of the tips I learned and hope the attendees feel the same way.
Missouri’s Bow season begins in three weeks and I’m ready to put these suggestions to work.
