This episode opens with accomplished bowhunter, Chris Aasland of Appleton, Minn., who has been tracking a whitetail buck for years. He self-filmed his persistent pursuit of the deer he nicknamed “Dodger Buck,” which kept dodging away. Chris also shows how to set up a camera to successfully capture hunting experiences.
Ed Hegland, from Appleton, Minn., demonstrates his strip-till farming technique, a minimum-tillage system that protects soil from wind and water erosion and provides wildlife habitat.
