HUNTING SPEAKER SERIES
THE ART OF CALLING DEER & BECOMING INVISIBLE IN THE WOODS
Tom Richardson hails from Carson City, the heart of Michigan's big buck country, and has stalked the woods and fields for over 37 years learning and honing his skills in the the ways of whitetails, turkey and small game.
An accomplished professional hunting guide and game caller, Tom attributes his success in his ability to get close to the animals he's hunting by becoming as invisible to the game as humanly possible. In his seminars, Tom not only teaches different deer calling techniques, but also, and just as important, scent and sight control, learning the animals habits, weaknesses and developing and utilizing woodsman-ship skills to successfully blend into the forest, becoming a part of his surroundings by not only vocally imitating the animal he's hunting, but other animals as well, to cover his tracks.
Tom’s seminar is strictly a nuts-and-bolts educational tool that will open the door for hunters that want to enhance their hunting skills by learning the art of calling deer and unconventional, outside the box hunting strategies to get you up close and personal with the game. His unique old school style and sense of humor is complimented by the many years of knowledge he has acquired hunting Michigan's woods and fields, and the genuine enjoyment he gets from passing on what he's learned to fellow hunters. Tom's seminar is a must see for both veterans and new hunters alike.
WHITETAIL FOOD PLOTTING FOR SMALL ACREAGES
Learn food plot growing basics presented by Paul Cwiklinski, who, with 50 years of whitetail hunting under his belt, including 23 years of food plotting, has shown consistent success with only 13 acres of property and a 1-acre food plot. Paul shows in this step-by-step approach, how to attract, grow, and hold whitetail deer and other game to properties as small as 7 acres withfood plots as little as ¾ of an acre in size. This visually informative seminar will educate the ‘every day hunter’ that, with a little ‘sweat equity,’ you can maximize the potential for increased body mass and antler growth with minimal expense for a standing food plot. Learn plot placement, maintenance, and record keeping techniques that will give the average hunter valuable information from spring through the rut, and right through the winter months when whitetail nutrition is most critical.
