This week on North American Hunter-TV, Mark Kayser travels to his home state of South Dakota for a whitetail hunt in the foothills of Mobridge. But this prairie hunt throws Kayser and his hunting partner for a loop as the weather creates inactivity, and then switches 180 degrees with so many deer running in the early rut, Kayser has a hard time honing in on one. North American Hunter-TV is part of the North American Hunting Club, the premier community for hunters and outdoor enthusiasts. Tune in for a look at this week’s episode here.
“Deer are fairly easy to pattern. It’s not uncommon for the deer to just disappear for two or three days. So it’s crucial we don’t give up on a spot,” said Kayser’s hunting partner, Levi Duncan.
While Duncan was going after a monster muley he’s seen on property, Kayser is all about whitetails. The trip brought drizzling rain, which made the hunters on a “slide and stalk” instead of “spot and stalk.” “The high humidity and drizzle definitely turned these deer on after being inactive the day before,” said Kayser. “They were jump-started and ready to rut, and we had all the action we could want in a hunt.”
Also in this week’s episode, tune in for “One More Thing,” where Kayser demonstrates the versatility in the new Cam Am Commander XT 1000. In the “Mathews Minute” segment, Gordy Krahn gives advice to work on keeping your upper body in a consistent ‘T’ form. In Field Test powered by StuffStuff, get the latest reviews on the Survivor Fire Starter, Rage Xtreme Broadhead and the Schaffer Opposition Lite Arrow Rest. Lastly, in “You Call the Shots,” Kayser and Hartle discuss bottomland whitetail hunt that had Kayser climbing round hay bales for height advantage.
