Episode Summary

Episode Notes

Our good friend and Land & Legacy team member Seth Harker joins us for a mid-season update this week. Seth Harker is a proven whitetail hunter, especially in Southwestern Missouri. Over the years, Seth has worked on developing a property for a nonresident landowner. His devotion to land stewardship, habitat management, and whitetails pays off for him each hunting season.

This year, Seth had his sights set on a buck he called Snoop. Seth's first encounter with this buck came years prior when the young buck entered the food plot with his target buck of that time. Since then he identified him as a buck to follow and watch closely. The yearly study of habits began. For two seasons now Seth has watched and documented this buck closely. Each season revealed consistencies in his travel, bedding, and feeding patterns.

These consistencies ultimately lead to Snoop's demise! In this podcast, Seth recalls from hunts this season, including a miss with a bow, that lead to him successfully tagging Snoop, a 146+ inch 10-pointer. This buck is a great example of how consistent devotion to learning a property and it's natural resources can lead to successfully harvesting hit list bucks.
