CONCORD, N.H. -
Increase your odds of harvesting a whitetail this fall by attending a free talk that can help you improve your deer-hunting strategies. The talk will be held on Wednesday, August 31, 2011, at 7 p.m. at the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, 11 Hazen Drive, Concord, N.H. No pre-registration is required.
White-tailed deer hunting in New Hampshire is challenging. This talk can help you better understand deer sign and come up with a deer hunting plan that will increases your chances of bagging a buck this fall. Presenter Dave Priebe is a seasoned outdoorsman, lifelong naturalist and a volunteer New Hampshire hunter education instructor. He is also a Quaker Boy Game Calls pro-staff member.
Priebe's talk explores some key points of deer biology, such as the rut (the phases of male white-tailed deer breeding behavior), as well as scouting 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.
"Scouting is more than knowing that deer are around. It’s getting to know that deer you’re after," said Priebe. "My talk will enhance your scouting skills and give you insight into the world of the whitetail."
