After years of reading their books, watching videos etc..

The key to their hunting style is . DRIVE A LOT OF MILES AND DON'T HUNT UNTIL YOU FIND A TRACK. It is referred to many times in their books, interviews etc., but never spelled out like I did.

Not putting them down at all, but when there is snow that is what you do. Like he said it is getting tougher these days to find a track and it has forced them into the woods to look, go to Ontario etc..

Now..., there is a lot to finding a track, analysis of the track, deciding whether it is big enough, fresh enough, and where it is heading. And...being able to physically and mentally follow the track wherever it goes, without getting lost. That is what they are good at. Maybe the best.

I think knowing when to speed up , slow down, when to circle , keeping that track when it gets in with other deer, especially on a couple day old snow. They've always prided themselves on shooting too. I think at one time Shane, Lanny and Lane were all state champ trap shooters. That's a lot of shooting to take two barrels out.

I've thought this as well. If you are going to track big bucks in the snow you have to be able to jump shoot at running deer. Obviously that isn't safe in a lot of places but up in the woods they hunted I don't think there is very rarely going to be another hunter within miles of them.
