Finally received some rain the past week so I have now made the 3rd attempt at understanding this program. I am trying to exceed my usual 3-4 rings per year. In the fall and winter is when I hunt most. This program of his takes plenty of practice, and I understand the concept of good audio and tight vdi swaying no more than one or two numbers either direction from the hinge, or center vdi response. I am using the Townley set up, mentioned in the book, and am going to make a few discriminating changes in the future, maybe dropping the low 30s. It's been fun so far, but I believe a few changes might work better. I also accept 81-94, so a search without gold may still yield clad and silver.
Anyone tried this program, and later modified it to better suit them? Please share; I am looking for the best possibilities. I'll keep you informed as the summer and fall progress. Thanks and HH all.
