    Book Hunting Mature Whitetails the Lakosky Way:

    I saw this posted in the Classified Ads. I wonder how long of a book it is. I imagine it says:

    Buy enormous tracts of the best whitetail ground in America. Hang stands given to you buy sponsors. Kill giant deer.

    I bet it's a good read though.

    LOL, not bashing just them, I'm just completely jealous of them.

    It actually is a very good read, and I would bet there would be a lot less bashing of them by our forum members if they had read it.

    I would love to see a hunting Show where all these " professionals " hunted pressured public land like the majority of the working class American.

    I bet they'd save a ton on taxidermy bills lol

    How old is Lee and how many deer a year are you allowed in Minnesota? Here is 4 bucks a year.So he would have to have hunted for atleast 35 years to harvest that many around here.I didn't think he was that old.

    I believe he meant that Lee killed a (ie one) 150" buck on public land in MN.


    Now that that's cleared up, lets get back to the Lakosky hating. How dare they work hard, achieve success and hunt for a living! Its an outrage!

    If I wrote a book called "killing mediocre bucks on crappy properties" and every AT member and all their hunting buddies would buy one or two copies each...then I could afford to write a more interesting sequel after a few years.

    The Lakoskys seem to have done well for themselves and have a pretty good thing going, good for them. It took time, effort, and skill to get there, so we could all probably learn a thing or two from them.

    you can do it year in and year out if you know what your doing and put in the work. I can not give a websites name on here as it is not allowed, but it you want to learn a different and proven tactic to kill mature bucks on public land. google "Dan Infalt"

    She might be good looking, but far from "smoking hot"

    Im a working class man and i'm not wasting my time hunting public land? I spend a ton of time and money (effort) on hunting and it pays off! Then i get to hear people *#&$% that its not fair when i or the people around me kill big deer. Guess what... you get what you put into it. Also i know everyone is different but i for one don't want to watch a hunting show that hunts only "state ground" with fork horns and 115" 8 pointers getting killed and the simple fact that those shows don't really exist means i'm not the only one.

    Hunting big tracts of prime private property in Iowa, Kansas, Illinois. Check!
    Planting Acres upon Acres Food Plots. Check!
    Having 1000 Trail Cameras. Check!
    Having 365 1/4 days a year to dedicate to killing a mature buck. Check!

    The list goes on.

    I really dislike how hunting is portrayed on most TV shows. You must either be able to complete above check list and if you can't, just save your money and go to "insert name here" outfitter or ranch and you too can harvest a 140'' buck for $x,xxx. Just be sure and go buy our newest deer call or use this new scent eliminating product or you won't have a chance. Blah, blah, blah.

    And people call these salesmen great stewards of our sport?

    Killing mature bucks doesn't take what the industry wants you to buy into. Common sense, strategic scouting plans, pouring over maps until your eyes cross, finding bedding areas/travel corridors, perfect stand site locating and prepping, obsessing over your entry and exit routes, hunting the right stands during the right rut phase, using wind and thermals to your advantage. Last but not least, time on stand is what kills mature bucks.

    A mature buck (3.5 yrs.) no matter where you hunt is a trophy to me. Some areas your average 3.5 might score 130-140 and others it might push 160. Age structure of bucks killed always impresses me vs. genetics and nutrition.
