Hansen-Expectations

It’s important to harbor realistic expectations while on DIY road hunts. Arriving in far-away habitats with no advanced scouting or experience leaves you at a decided disadvantage.

By Tony Hansen 

The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence—a universal cliché that may or may not prove true. When it comes to bowhunting whitetails, that greener grass is often perceived to lie across state lines. And, quite often, it certainly is.
