Perfect timing as the kids and I watched the E.E. video on Tuesday night.  Can't wait to show them the pics.  Great buck and story.  Congrats.

One question, was their footage of him in primal dreams, the first one? At 20 minutes in there is a buck that looks a lot like him but younger and with a smaller rack. Anybody know?

tuscarawasbowman- There is no footage of Hurley in Primal Dreams. There is however footage,  set camera photos, and dialog from Barry as he describes his close encounter with this great buck in our latest film Essential Encounters. Mike

There are a lot of deer that look similar as they grow up. We only throw several hundred at you in our films from many different states. Ha! The Wensels did not start hunting the property where Hurley grew up until some time after we launched Primal Dreams.

About how much property (acerage wise) do you guys hunt in a given year? I've always wondered that.

If you are talking just Gene and Barry, they have been established in Iowa for over a decade and have access they have work hard to secure. They also commit a great deal of time to hunting and do not want to over hunt a given area. My brothers and I have done the same in Illinois. Access is kind of dynamic in that it changes from year to year, but me personally I focus on my best several hundred acres. Some could say we brothers of the bow are lucky, and you won't hear us disagree, but we are very committed to this way of life and it is what has brought us together. Many chapters in Gene's and Barry's books describe some of the properties and resources they have worked to get permission to hunt on.
I have written about "home body" bucks that tend to stay in one area most of their life. Gene has written articles about bucks that tend to travel more. But no matter the place, its great to just be able to be in the woods with mature deer. That has always been our goal and the Wensels goal. They even moved to a new state to to be able to do that.   Mike

Interesting. Thanks for the info and thank you guys for working so hard to establish a good name for traditional bowhunters and hunters in general and for making guys like me better hunters. I'd be much farther back on the trail if it wasn't for y'all.
Thanks- Nick
