Re: Spot & Stalk or Ambush

The country I hunt is best for spot and stalking. But I like either style of hunting sometimes getting into a good hunting area and watching trails is productive for me.

Re: Spot & Stalk or Ambush

I have ambushed white tails in Texas but prefer to spot and stalk muleys in Colorado. The name of the game is to kill "it" cleanly prior to being detected and from a secure position if "it" is aggressive. Hence the stealth bomber, intercontinental ballistic missile, submarines AND LONG RANGE RIFLES!!!

You may wanna spend your money on scents, lures, blinds, fancy camo...
I'll spend mine on good glass, long guns and lots of "practice ammo". No offense to anyone, I respect your method and am glad to join you with wooden recurve in hand during bow season. But when we get down to the nut cuttin' I want to hear my spotter say "send it".

It seem that most people on the show spot and stalk western muleys

I tend to do a lot of both. Most of my actual deer hunting is done by watching huge wheat fields and when I spot a likely shooter I then try to maneuver for a shot. More often than not I'm spotting from over a mile away and due to terrain will need to move to within 300-800yds to get set up.

I've done some close stalks as well but they are not the majority.

Re: Spot & Stalk or Ambush

Not many high places or open plains here in Ohio. So find yourself a good spot with lots of sign and wait for the big one to come by.
