Spring is right around the corner for most of us. There's a lot to take in when it comes to spring scouting, and today we're going to be going over what you can accomplish when spring scouting with Zach Ferenbaugh from The Hunting Public. Zach has a ton of experience over the years figuring things out this time of year and knowing what you can look for to help your chances come fall. With that said, enjoy our Q&A below!
