Something to get you thru until next spring season is a series of spring hunts by Dave Owens from this past season called the Pinhoti Project on YouTube. Dave is a Grand National calling champion, but that’s beside the point. He chronicles starting in FL then moving north with the seasons. The videos are numbered Day 1, Day 2, and so on. Today he just uploaded Day 42 in Kentucky. Bingewatching worthy for sure.
No commercials. No endorsements. Just a guy doing a little research, parking at the forest gate and figuring it out. Although he is a champion caller, what you could take away more from these videos is it’s less about calling and more about woodsmanship and patience. No decoys. No blinds. And for 95% of the hunts just a mouth call. Some of the places he hunts are ones he’s known for years and some are places he’s stepped foot on for the first time.
So if you are like me, with it being more about the hours it took to find em and fool em, and less about the 2 seconds it took to pull the trigger, check it out.
