On this episode of the Nine Finger Chronicles, Dan talks with Jim LaRose of New York about how the tides of bad luck shifted in his favor when shot a 170" whitetail buck. Jim kicks off the episode by breaking down the terrain of the properties he hunts and how he has seen the overall deer population decrease over the last several years. This has led to Jim making a strategy change with him moving his treestands off of the field edges and deeper in to the blocks of timber where the deer bed.
Before the 2021 started Jim had 3 bucks on his hit list that he was going to chase. On opening day one of the bucks was hit by a car, and a couple weeks later he let an arrow go on a buck that that they called in a dog tracker to help recover, but they never did. Feeling down and out, he let the rest of the archery season slip away. But, on opening day of the firearm season he connected on a giant buck that he had 3 years of history... with a pistol!
Excellent episode, enjoy!
