If your not using both your not using all the tools in the tool box. No place for both on the poll.

Re: Spot & Stalk or Ambush

Prefer Spot n Stalk, but it doesn't always suit the terrain in western states.
Sometimes I'll still hunt or ambush too.

Both, depending on the situation/terrain/time of day etc. But graetly prefer spot and stock to any other method hands down.

Re: Spot & Stalk or Ambush

I'll spot and stalk in areas I don't know but once I know them I go to ambush mode so I can slip in and out without disrupting any animal movement with stalking. Eventually, if the animal movements haven't gotten out of wack you can start taking a few out or wait for a big buck to work through.

Re: Spot & Stalk or Ambush

old areas, i used ambush for wt, mulley deer in the morning and evenings.
if they don't show up i change tactics and go after them.
starting few years ago, with cwd on deer, they tend to change behavior, so ambush is not working all the time.
you start seeing big bucks between 10-11am, 2-4pm, exactly when you are relaxing between morning and evening hunt.
in week days - mo-fri, not a problem for ambush, but on end of the week... notca chance on some areas.
i have to walk deeper from the main roads to be able to fill my tags.

Re: Spot & Stalk or Ambush

The place I hunt I can only ambush becaus its so thick and can only get a 20 yard shots.
but on windy days I stalk I know where they are bedding with there noses to the wind, I have made shots from 5 to 10 feet.
