Hunting as a team

The important thing, when hunting as a team, is to work together to track that elusive moose. Did you uncover a clue, such as signs of rubbing, or detect a call? If so, it’s time to pull back and prepare a plan to track and harvest your prey. (Video in French only)

Deer hunting

Habitats: the buck stops here

During the rutting season, bucks often feed less, and therefore have less interest in baited sites. Michel explains what characteristics of the forest environment are preferred by bucks during this period and why. (Video in French only)

Finding and exploiting deer scrapes

Sometimes bucks will scrape the ground to eat mushrooms or whatever is growing there. In these situations, such scrapings are not to be exploited by the hunter. Michel explains the clues that allow us to identify the strategic scrapings that are of interest to us. (Video in French only)

Baiting deer the smart way

The first thing to consider when baiting deer is that one baited site is not enough. You need at least two, ideally three. Michel explains why it is important to have several options up your sleeve. (Video in French only)

Use of surveillance cameras in deer hunting

Here we learn how to make good use of surveillance cameras when preparing for a deer hunt. Michel explains, among other things, how to take advantage of the valuable information that these technological tools can teach us about the habits of game animals. (Video in French only)
