7-13-10 Frank Kovash, One on One, Scouting Pressured and Unpressured Bucks
Frank Kovash says: 'Scouting Big Bucks Pressured and Unpressured
I recently hired David to come to my house and give me one on one scouting lessons for Big Bucks, both pressured and unpressured, as my Happy Hunting Grounds see some of the highest pressure for whitetails in the country and I also plan to hunt unpressured bucks on Daves awesome W.V. lease.
I had at the ready all maps, aerial photos of my hunting area and a few other items Dave requested upon his arrival. He first spent a very patient amount of time at my home meticulously pouring over the maps. He precisely measured, marked and finally announced, -I want to see these places I have marked on the map.- I have hunted this area for many years and was amazed when I looked at the map that Dave was working on. He picked all the spots that I hunt on, in those woods. He did it without ever stepping a foot on any of the acreage. I quickly thought to my self, I may not learn anything new here. I too have put maps to work on my own when scouting, but very quickly realized as I looked at Daves map work, my previous map work was sorely lacking.
We began our field work with an overview drive around the entire area. Meanwhile, Dave was all the while orienting himself and keeping track on the topographic map. Next we entered the woods to ground truth Daves map work. We were not five yards in the woods when the lessons began. In fact, they never stopped for long after that. Though I have scouted with Dave before and already knew that he - stops to smell the roses - so to speak, I was once again amazed at the amount of information Dave retrieved from the deer sign we encountered. Trust me, the man does not need a trail cam, he figures out in short order what deer there are, where they are going and why.
I began leading Dave to one of my tree stand locations a short distance away when he stopped me and said he wanted to look at something first. He began laughing fiendishly, as I soon learned he had found what he calls the proverbial -12 Ring -(in 3-D talk) for big buck tree stand locations. He went on to explain all the sign to me and where exactly I wanted to place my tree stand. I confessed to Dave that I had walked past that spot a hundred times and never noted it as a spot I wanted to hunt. He then exclaimed - I let the bucks tell me where they want me to be.- He says that all the time. You can not argue with that logic. I then took Dave to my second stand location, where I just knew once we got there I would be adjusting the location on that one too, after he was done picking the deer sign apart. Because, another thing Dave will constantly say
is -Twenty Yards is and Eternity.- The difference this time was there was more ground to cover and more scattered sign to decipher. Dave utilized a map to organize all the sign, as he neatly and accurately plotted the information, also using a G.P.S. for increased accuracy. He then began drawing and connecting lines when he was satisfied he had found everything he needed to find. When he finished it was as obvious as the nose on my face, that he had located another twelve ring and of course I would be adjusting my stand location, not the Eternal Twenty Yards, but thirty five to forty yards. He made it all seem so easy, simple and obvious. It did not take him long despite the rough terrain that I hunt.
Trust me, if you really want to learn how to scout for Big Buck stand locations, give Dave a call. He will put you at the beginning of where you want to be, because as I noted to myself, he is not only a good deer scout, he is good at teaching it also.
It is my personal opinion that if you do not understand the gravity of Daves deer sign interpretations and you do not think you are getting your moneys worth, maybe a set of golf clubs instead of a bow is a wiser purchase. I can not thank him enough for the gift of deer knowledge he gave me to use for the rest of my life. I will do my best to ensure that my children and grandchildren receive the joys of this gift as well. Thanks David
