Whenever I find a new deer trail while scouting I immediately try to determine the “story” behind it. I ask myself questions like, where are they coming from? Where are they going? Why have the deer chosen this route to get from point A to point B? Are they safer here or is it just a natural funnel they have to travel through? The list goes on and on. The point is, like a lot of things in the woods, deer trails tell a story and I love a good story.
I love to hunt but I get almost as much enjoyment out of listening to old timers, young kids, and every one in between recount the the story behind the deer laying on their tailgate or hanging on their wall. It is my hope that I can share these stories in a way that truly captures the imagination and breathes new life into the tradition of hunting here in New England and beyond.
