Part 2: Only 2 Weeks
No matter the situations of your life, if you really want to bow-kill big bucks on your own, and you don’t have a “leg up” on the game, would you supply two weeks of your time to “git’er done?” If not, then stop reading right here, and start dreaming of success because dreaming is about as close as you’re going to get to consistent success!
On the other hand — even if you’re an “underprivileged” whitetail bowhunter (such as I), I assure you, you can bring big bucks into your life!
The fact is if you put me in a good area for two weeks each year, in the middle of November, leave me alone, and let me hunt hard, and 90 percent of the time I’m going to put a big’un on the ground — case closed. It’s not rocket science, it’s a relatively simple process — labor intensive for the DIY’er, but totally doable.
Here is a three-step plan to big-bone wealth:
1) Do all the home/leg work in the off-season
2) Take two weeks off work, sometime between November 7-25
3) Get to your area — use your brain — get in a tree stand, and stay put. It will reap great rewards!
