How a little help can go a long way to help others become successful hunters

© By Othmar Vohringer

Those of my readers who also read the Whitetail Deer Passion blog may remember the post I wrote about the young Wisconsin hunter who killed his first ever buck after seeking my advice.

After that initial buck Shawn, the young Wisconsin hunter, asked for more advice because he hadn’t seen any more deer. He was wondering where they went. I gave him advice, based on the information he provided, and a few days later he called to tell me that he shot a huge 11-point puck during Wisconsin’s slug gun season. The hunter kindly supplied me with his hunting report and the permission to publish it on Whitetail Deer Passion.

In the report he writes an interesting part that all hunters should take to heart. “…His way of thinking surprised me. I always thought that bow hunters had to be either in a tree stand or in a ground blind that is manufactured…” To often hunters are caught up with traditions and “that is how it is done” rituals. The fact however is, that the hunter who thinks outside the box will always be more successful. Deer do not read hunting magazines, watch videos or attend hunting seminars. Deer do what they do and hunters need to observe and adjust accordingly.

As Shawn’s story and the popularity of my hunting strategy consultant service and seminars prove time and again thinking outside of the box and be flexible pays off big time.

The full story can be read here.

I am flattered by the credit Shawn pays to my advice but also very proud of having been able to play my part in his success. It is quite something for a novice hunter to go from getting nothing for years to filling tow doe and two buck tags, and big bucks at that, in one season.

Here I leave you with Shawn’s two big bucks which he killed within a few weeks of each other.

This is Shawn's 10 point bow buck.

You are so right about how good it feels when readers use some of our advice, to get better at something, Othmar! :-) Sharing, through a blog, to me, is the ultimate writing experience. Equipped with a live comments box even, to contribute with as well for feed-back and almost instant communication with Your readers. What more on earth could any real writer desire?

Keep up all this fine work that you somehow produce my blogging friend and there'll be plenty more Shawns out there in your future!

Thanks you for the kind words.

I love blogging because, as you pointed out, it gives me the opportunity to interact with my reader. Something I can' to writing for magazines and newspapers.

I sometimes just wish I had more time to blog.
