In this week’s Deer Season 365 Podcast episode, we’re talking with Dr. Bronson Strickland of the Mississippi State University Deer Lab about the individuality of whitetail bucks. While we often report the averages when it comes to deer habits and behaviors, it’s important to acknowledge the outliers in our hunting strategy. We dive into buck home ranges and core areas, excursions, bedding habits, food preferences and more!
