So all of a sudden you’re putting a ton of pressure on your property. And that’s taking a mature deer, he’s going, “All right, this guy keeps coming around. I’m out of here, I’m going to the neighbor’s.”
WHITETAIL RENDEZVOUS PODCAST Initial Ascent with CEO Dennis Stokes
“Yes, you can deer hunt with an Initial Ascent pack say Dennis Stokes
At Initial Ascent (http://initialascent.com/) innovation is at the forefront of every decision. We benchmark our products on Innovation, Quality, Durability, Functionality, and Comfort. Our products are 100% made in the United States. We are proud, American backcountry hunters who live, work, and play in the adventurous state of Idaho.
We test our products extensively with help from our Ascent Team Athletes. We construct each product to outlast even the toughest environments. Our backpack frames have been through 14 generations and 3 years in development. We are honored to introduce the highest quality suspension system for backcountry hunters.
Our IA4K bag design uses a “??V”?? shaped structure, which properly centers heavy loads across the back. This creates a wedge, keeping the load high and tightly fitted. Pockets, zippers, and straps are strategically placed to increase efficiency and accessibility during the hunting experience.
We hand-select our pack system materials using a thorough, arduous process. The materials we use to construct our products are the best on the market. We use Triaxial Carbon Fiber, 500d?Cordura’®, 400d Packcloth, UV resistant nylon webbing, water proof YKK zippers and?Duraflex’®?buckles and hardware.”
WHITETAIL RENDEZVOUS PODCAST Grandpa Ray Land Management Part 3 “?? John O”?”??Brion
“John, welcome back to the show and let”?”??s talk about the Land Management plan and how it affects deer hunting from Grandpa Ray Outdoors.
John: Yeah. If I have somebody where I”?”??m actually stepping on property, hopefully, they”?”??ve had soil samples taken ahead of time. But if they haven”?”??t, that”?”??s one thing that we”?”??ve done at times is I”?”??ve helped people take soil samples as we”?”??re walking around touring the property. Because without a soil sample, I”?”??m just guessing, we”?”??re rolling the dice. It”?”??s hard to formulate a solid plan. So that”?”??s essential.
When I”?”??m on a property, we”?”??ll walk around, and if there”?”??s existing plots, everybody has probably got a name for each plot. And if they don”?”??t, we”?”??ll help create a name. Or I guess in some cases people are like, “??I don”?”??t care. Let”?”??s call it plot one, two, three, five, eight, whatever. So again, what we”?”??ll do then is I”?”??ll have a plan that we”?”??ll put on hardcopy, and it”?”??ll have the name of each plot, the acres of each plot. It”?”??ll have what seed mix that we”?”??re gonna recommend, when to plant that seed mix, how much of that seed mix to plant, what fertilizer to use for that seed mix, how much of that fertilizer to use and when. And then again we also have some other little notes on there saying, you know, if it”?”??s a perennial mix, clip every 30 to 45 days. Maybe if a guy has got certain weed issues, I”?”??ll give a recommendation saying, “??Hey, you know, use in May 10 ounces of clethodim, mix with 9-4-9 plant foods.
And again, when I do a plan, it”?”??d be for the existing, the current year, but then we also, when we”?”??re walking around on these properties, we”?”??ll also bring up as part of the plan that, “??Hey, the following year, we”?”??ll have another plan. What we”?”??re planning this year is setting ourselves up for us doing something the following year on that bit of land.”?? So, you know, that”?”??s one thing that we do discuss.”
