In Episode 5 of Back 40 from MeatEater, Mark Kenyon and Doug Duren hunt for late-October pre-rut whitetails.
“Fall has settled across the Back 40, and deer season is in full swing. With a few target bucks identified, Mark Kenyon has invited Doug Duren to hunt the late October pre-rut. Both Kenyon and Duren are disciples of conservation writer Aldo Leopold, who famously advocated for Americans to develop a new land ethic. Leopold challenged us to shift our relationship with the land, to act as stewards instead of conquerors. We’d all like to see these guys get a big buck, but deer down or not, they’ll explore how a small property in Michigan can model Leopold’s land ethic for modern America. #fueledbynature Here’s a look at the upcoming Back 40 episodes through the end of the year:
Ep. 6 on 12/9: It’s the peak rut and Ben O’Brien is back to see if any of the early season work will pay dividends.
Ep. 7 on 12/16: Mark is joined by his dad for a very special hunt.
