Today on the show I’m joined by accomplished public land deer hunter Joe Elsinger to break down how he patterns locations rather than bucks and the advanced tools he uses to analyze deer movement in correlation with weather related factors.

Subjects Discussed

  • What “patterning” means to Joe and to what degree he believes it’s possible
  • Why he typically focuses on patterning locations instead of specific deer
  • How he deploys trail cameras when trying to pattern locations
  • The advanced data analysis tool Joe built to correlate weather with deer behavior
  • The weather variables Joe tracks
  • What he’s discovered about the trends that matter most
  • How you can use location patterns to effectively hunt the entire season
  • Examples of how certain locations hunt better at certain times of year
  • How patterning locations can help you on typically slow hunting days
