Podcast Ep. 179: 7 Traits of the Successful Public Land Pheasant Hunter

Host Bob St.Pierre is joined by Pheasants Forever Journal Editor Tom Carpenter to break down Carp’s Upland Bird Hunting SUPER issue article titled “7 Traits of the Successful Public Land Pheasant Hunter.”  To kick off the conversation, Carp offers his theory that the way a person approaches a hunt – spirit, attitude, mindset, effort, energy, heart, outlook – are qualities as important to bagging birds as being a smart upland hunting tactician.  

Episode Highlights:  
  • The guys talk about people’s ability to generate excuses not to hunt early season, mid-season, and late season, while breaking down all the positive reasons to chase longtails all season long.  
  • The duo discusses the most productive days to take off from work for the birds to have settled down after the weekend and to best escape pressure from other hunters.  
  • Carp explains why he uses onX Hunt app all year long before falling asleep in bed each night.  Use the code PHEASANTS or QUAIL during checkout at for 20% off your onXmaps subscription.
