E126: Success With Access (Feat. Bill Winke of Midwest Whitetail and Realtree 365 on Scent Control, Walking Past Deer, Hunting w/ a Partner, Creative Treestand Access, Public and Private Land)

July 25, 2019

Here is the baseline: Bill Winke is quite honestly one of our heroes. He has always been on the cutting edge of deer hunting knowledge and media production. It is probably because Bill is a master at calculated risk and never afraid to try new things, no matter how crazy they may seem. He is a good man and a pleasure to talk with.

Bill has his access dialed in on his property in Southern Iowa, and it has come from his experience all over the country chasing whitetails. in this episode we got to really get a glimpse of how his mind works and how he is able to beat deer at their own game time and time again!
