Bob's 2nd WI Guided D.I.E. Hunt Testimonial for 2013!

"I believe that Bob’s DOMINANCE IS EVERYTHING Deer Hunting System is truly as great as he says it is. The King of the herd hunted me, for three consecutive days in the rut. November 23, 24, and 25 – the first three days of the 2013 Wisconsin gun deer season. The D.I.E. System brought him within sight in the afternoon on the first day and he came within 80 yards, just out of sight, during daylight each of the next two days, while I was in my stand.

In addition, the first morning two other mature bucks circled my stand just outside of 40 yards.
Multiple does came in each day and stayed just outside of 40 yards, sometimes for 15 to 20 minutes. Some does had their tails at 45º angles towards the sky, which Bob taught me to believe it means they are in heat. The does paced back and forth. There were no fawns present, only very large mature does.
None of these deer ever became aware of my presence, as a man.

Bob scouted our 240 acres with me, on two occasions in preparation for this hunt. He showed me the territories of three different dominant bucks. We chose to select this site 1/2 mile from the main road, because of logging and hunting pressure on the southern two 80 acre parcels.

Bob constructed first one then two of his D.I.E. Scrapes exactly as he directs us to do in his book. He then advised me, showing me how to make (2) modifications to the standard D.I.E. System Set-Up that users normally follow:

1.) I prefer to hunt from the ground, but Bob advised against it. Through considerable discussion, he agreed to set up the ground blind and guide me on how to do it the right way so I would not ‘get busted’ in the blind.

2.)    We decided that setting two D.I.E. Scrapes inside the pecking order breeding zone (not standard procedure) would get the dominant buck’s attention right away. Of course, with my first day in the stand being the opening day of gun deer season, we expected that the herd bucks would feel some hunting pressure on the properties bordering ours, so we thought it would be best to move into the breeding zone in this one instance, rather than hunt in a transition area. This way a first day encounter with a king would be most likely.

Other than these two alterations, I followed Bob’s instructions from his book in every detail by re-reading the sections on the Set-Up and Hunt Procedure each evening, so I had a plan for the coming day in the stand.

Mature bucks hunted me and the king kept on returning when I was there and when I was not. He owns the land that I walked in on, and the land I set up on, and he was patrolling it trying to find the intruder buck and doe, but instead he found out I was not an intruder buck on Day 3.

On Day 1, just north of my stand 60 yards, a mature buck crossed an opening then 30 minutes later another mature buck did the same thing. The does took this same path, as it was a breeding zone. An hour later, the king crossed the same area for a two-second sighting. He had his nose forward and his rack laid on his back. His body was twice the size of the previous two bucks.

When I walked out, exactly as Bob teaches in his book, I saw the king’s splayed toed tracks in each of my boot tracks I made while coming in. There were 6 inches of fresh snow, and his tracks in mine were clear to see. My stand was up on a hill and he followed me to the foot of the hill then circled away. He was hunting me and he pushed his track in mine with the dew points standing out. It is interesting how wide he spread his toes apart, at almost 45-degree angles.

On Day 2 of my hunt, the wind was coming from the opposite direction and many of the does, except for two older ones had left the area. When I came in on Day 3, I was shocked to see the king had trailed me all the way (1/2 mile), to where I was picked up the night before. He stood right where I got into the car. He patterned me! When I got to the base of the first hill, he was on top directly upwind waiting for me. All I heard was pounding then 5 wheeze whistles.

I continued on to my stand and he came in three hours later. He stood up on a hill, and walked back and forth dragging his hooves into the leaves beneath the snow. He pounded his hooves 60 yards away, just out of sight, directly upwind of the ground blind. He had a clear view to my D.I.E. Scrapes from there. He then whistled several times. He was there quite a while but I could not get sight of him because his stayed just over the hill.

So on the afternoon of Day 3 of my first D.I.E. hunt with a gun, I ended the hunt and went to investigate. His tracks on top the hill and on the other side told me he had been there several times in the three days. Although there was six inches of fresh snow on the ground, he kicked up the leaves and dirt in an area that was 80-yards long.

This king hunted me all three days because I followed the rules set by Bob J. Mercier for his Dominance Is Everything Deer Hunting System. I believe in the D.I.E. System and in Bob’s skills that I now have, which set us apart from all traditional deer hunters.

The things I learned changed my hunting life. I am 62 years old and grew up in a hunting tradition. Here are a few specific things I learned:

1)      Trust what Bob teaches. When I experienced the king of the herd, the words Bob spoke while training me, came alive and I started to fit them together into a puzzle, I could not see before.

2)      The king was looking for me, the doe, upwind of the D.I.E. Scrape and he was calling me to go to him. If I was in a tree, I would have had several shots each day upwind of the scrape. In the ground blind, I was hidden, but it restricted my view.

3)      Even when he busted me (he saw something walking like a deer that wasn’t a deer), and he alarmed-out wheeze whistling on the hill top, while I walked the ½ mile to my stand on Day 3, he still came looking for the doe, and intruder buck at the location of my D.I.E. Scrapes. I don’t believe he busted me as a human, but he busted me knowing I was not an intruder buck, or a doe.

4)      The king did not want to go straight up a hill to follow my tracks all the way in. Every time he turned and angled up the hill crosswind in thick cover.

There are many more points I learned from this guided D.I.E. hunt, but I would recommend having Bob teach you, and use my hunt as a basis for understanding why each of these things happened as they did. Next year, with a few modifications from Bob I will get a clear shot at this animal. The king reminded me of a moose, a majestic buck with a huge body and large rack. I am sure he was the king of his herd because he showed no fear, splayed his toes, and was intent on showing his dominance to every deer that walked through his territory."

Day 4 of my 2013 WI Bow Hunt

I have to quit trying to make it happen, and just let it happen. The D.I.E. System does the work for a human, and there is no human in a D.I.E. hunt.

Day 4 turned out to be a bust for me, because I left early on Day 3 to avoid shooting the buck in the rain, and having a chance of losing his blood trail. I do not like taking chances and shooting a buck on a foggy and rainy afternoon is pretty chancy if you are alone, like I was.

When I walked out on Day 3 the king was there and I disrupted his normal behavior by advancing too far downwind of my D.I.E. Scrape. I did not intend to boost the buck from his sanctuary as I actually did by accident that day.

In hindsight I know now that the king knew I was not a deer, because no deer would have pushed through brush from upwind of his position and head straight towards his body as he staged downwind of his primary breeding scrape. My D.I.E. Scrape had become his core breeding scrape. He placed his front hoof print in each of the 3 scrapes that existed there (by the end of my D.I.E. Hunt) and he did so on a daily basis. All the bucks in the area, and does stayed away from the D.I.E. Scrape except a yearling buck that is young and dumb.

I hunted on Day 4 for 7 hours, and I had a conversation with three bucks that surrounded my scrape, before I realized I had been busted and at least the king was aware that there was a threat in his midst. He circled the Set-Up at a distance of 70-100 yards and when he came upon my drag-line scent, he locked up on it, and made his presence known to every deer in the area by raking his antlers on brush that was chest high on the buck. He wanted to call attention to himself, and to tell his herd that he is their commander, that he was downwind of the scrapes and that no deer can get to the scrapes without first encountering him and earning the right to breed there, by beating him in a fight.

I know now that quitting early on Day 3 cost me a successful kill. I can live with that. I will hunt the buck again in a week or two and I will improve my location and not call to him at all. That will force him to look for me in the new area, rather than telling him I am there, and allowing him to circle me to keep me inside the 35 yard bubble that exists around every D.I.E. Hunter's tree stand when we are in it.

Thanks for following my first hunt this year. The next one will turn out to be another learning experience, but as I have become accustomed to know, the king will be convinced that a doe is there to breed, and if I do not make any mistakes, then he will never feel threatened, and he will advance to find his next mate, the way he does in the wild when a doe in heat goes into estrus and visits one of his scrapes.

The D.I.E. System kept the king bedded within 35 yards of me for 3 days, and the buck actually approached my stand and urinated within 22 yards of the D.I.E. Scrape, that being 6 yards behind my right shoulder. If you have read my book, you well know I build the cover up behind my right shoulder so no deer can see me or catch a glimpse of my shadow in the morning. I do not care if some readers do not believe in what I write. I only speak the truth, through my spoken words and the ones I write whether they are in print or on a computer screen. The truth is all I know.

God Bless You,

Day 3 of my 2013 WI Bow Hunt with D.I.E. (Details)

Day 3 of my 2013 D.I.E. hunt resulted in some discoveries. When I came in, I walked like a deer through the dominant buck's core bedding area. It is the place he beds when the wind is from the WNW. He wasn't there of course, because he was NNE of my D.I.E. Scrape protecting his interests in breeding the two does I represent when I am in the tree stand. 

My stand faces SSW in hopes for a NW wind which I have yet to see. It was my fault that I set up expecting the NW wind at this time of year, and not checking the 3 day forecast as I direct my clients to do. I will not make that mistake again. Each day the Dominant Buck has visited my D.I.E. Scrape in the dark and has bedded within 45 yards of it (straight downwind for Day 2 and Day 3). He is in command of my D.I.E. Scrape(s) and he has made a third scrape of his own on the South Side of the two I have made before, and during this 4 day hunt. 

When I walked in yesterday I did not drag any deer scent, I only dumped a bit of urine out in a few of his staging areas on the way to my stand. I knew the buck would be hundreds of yards away in the opposite direction, and it being daylight had me feeling safe to do so.

Come sun up the Dominance buck walked from his bed to the direct downwind position 30 yards behind me. I could hear his abrupt steps as he announced to his herd that he is there king and that he is in charge of these scrapes. It rained all day with only two breaks for about 2 hours each, one at 11 am to 1 pm and one at 2 pm to 4 pm. During the first break, a spike buck walked into my primary scrape, stopping just shy of the dirt, looking over the dominant buck's rub and then sniffing one of the scent canisters I had placed there. He then came to my second scrape which is 5 yards from me on my left side and sniffed the doe estrus urine I have in that one. He moved off and never saw the invisible D.I.E. Hunter. He was flipping his tail, which told me there were other deer in front of him and behind him in view of his tail, that I could not see, but he could. The king was in front of him and other does, fawns, and yearling bucks were behind him. 

During the second break, the king made his second approach to my scrape. He held up 6 yards behind me and took a pee. I have never had a buck pee within a few yards of me before. He turned his body 180 degrees around as he urinated on the ground 22 yards downwind of my scrape. I did not look at him, because I cannot see a reason to bust myself. I cannot shoot behind me, and he did not know I was a human, so what do I have to gain by turning around, other than proving which buck or doe was there? I do not feel I need to prove anything to anyone, so I stayed invisible and let the buck do as he may.

Today is Day 4, and the wind is from the ESE at 5 mph at 6 am, at 7 am it will be from the South, and at 10 am it will be from the SSW. The best news I have is that the wind will be from the WSW at 10 mph when the afternoon finally gets here, and then the king of the herd will be right where I want him (where I will be dragging my doe scent in this morning). I hope to see him approach the scrape today and give me a shot opportunity, but I have to wait to see. I pushed a big deer out of the area 80 yards downwind of my scrape yesterday (Day 3) when I left. I did not see a rack, but the deer was 50 yards away standing broadside and was well over 200 pounds. I expect it was a buck scent checking the area. 

The good news is the king is hunting me. There is no bad news. The D.I.E. System worked on Day 2 when the Dominant Buck approached behind the hill to the WNW and rubbed trees within 35 yards of me, he again entered the 35 yard bubble around my tree stand yesterday (Day 3) while I was in the stand, the only thing is he is on my backside due to the ESE winds we have had for 3 days. Today the wind will change as I am in my stand, and while I have his complete attention, I am going to keep on hunting him (invisibly of course). I have a fifth day off, so I may use it, if need be. This boss buck is worth the extra effort. He owns the land I walk on, and I do not want to be the first one to back down. He will continue to come to me, as long as I persist and as long as I continue to be two deer which he has never met face-to-face, but he believes are real. 

God Bless.

Day 2 was a success. I am role-playing with the king!

Yesterday was Day 2 of my 2013 WI Bow Hunt with DOMINANCE IS EVERYTHING. I went in to my stand on the scheduled time, and when I got there I realized that the king of the herd had visited my D.I.E. Scrape for a second time (overnight). This time he rubbed the tree behind my scrape. He claimed ownership of all the land between the scrape and the deer trails I had walked in on for the past two days. He is upset that an intruder buck is in his midst (me), and he is anxious to meet this doe in estrus, that has been eluding him for a day and a half (also me).

I went to my stand via deer trails that the king owned. His shredded rubs tell me he owns this entire woods, and that I am trespassing when I am there. I thought it would make sense then to tell him the intruder buck doesn't care if he is trespassing, so I left buck sign near some of his territorial rubs that I passed by on the way to my stand. 

I made a 2nd D.I.E. Scrape when I arrived there as planned, but I did not place any decoy. Instead I did a bit of calling during the day. Doe bleats, and buck tending grunts. At 1 pm I saw two does off to my right. One was pretty big (estimated 160 pounds) and the other was a yearling (estimated 130 pounds). They were waking up from their bedded positions, and moving inside their core doe bedding area which I am hunting inside the fringe of. 

I am aware now that the king of the herd has a tight grip on his pecking order bucks. The king must have a massive rack, because no lesser ranked bucks and no challenging intruders have made a charge for the D.I.E. Scrape as of yet, while I was there. At 3 pm I saw a pecking order buck chasing 3 does. He was trotting and went into a gallop as the deer ran up a small slope to gain a view of the upcoming area. He was either an 8 or 10 pointer with a 16" wide spread and a very symmetrical rack. Probably a 3 year old but maybe 4 year of age. He would have scored about 130 or 140 at the most. His tines were high off the top of his head. The rut is on folks!

Just as the buck and 3 does took flight into a gallop, I heard the Dominant buck let out a set of tending grunts off to my right. He was straight downwind of me about 70 yards, and moving at a 45 degree angle towards his territorial rubs that I had walked past earlier that morning. When he got to them he laid into them with his main beams. I could hear him rubbing trees in a smooth manner, and also making shredded rubs. The king was telling the doe and the buck that he believes are real, (but which are only a mind game in my and his head) that he is there, he is downwind of them, and he knows by smell and sound that they are there to meet him. 

Dominant bucks never start fights with other bucks, they only defend their right to be king, by showing up to every challenge they are offered (that they believe to be real). The existence of a DOMINANCE IS EVERYTHING D.I.E. Scrape inside his territory is a territorial challenge, and the existence of a doe in heat or estrus coming to the king to breed, but not visually there for him to find, makes him into the protector of his herd territory, and a very aggressive breeder who is growing ever impatient to meet his next mate, who obviously cannot hear his calls to her, or see his rubs, and know where the king is bedded so they can meet. I tell the king of the herd, through my actions that I am a deaf and dumb doe, but I have the sweetest perfume, and I keep coming to see him on a daily basis because I want to breed with him. After all he is the best buck in the land, and he has the right to breed any doe that is 'hot' and inside his herd boundary. I am that doe, but instead of answering his tending grunts by standing up and going to him to breed, I stay quiet, and make him think about me some more. He has to believe I cannot hear his grunts, and that I cannot read his buck rubs, both shredded and smooth, in order for him to hunt me down for his next mate.

I have achieved that in the past two days of sitting in my stand, after role-playing with the king by walking like a deer, and using his herd's trails to get where I am going whenever the wind told me I could, without breaking any deer rules. He is on a mission to meet me and yesterday was the day he planned to do it. I threw him for a loop when I left 30 minutes early to play hard to get. Today he will be bedded within 50 yards of my stand when I arrive, and I expect him to show up in the first few minutes or hours, and he will be posturing all the way in. I have seen this behavior over a dozen times before on my past D.I.E. hunts, and their is no mistaking the approach the king of the herd makes to a D.I.E. Scrape. 

The wind was from the ENE on Day 1, and Day 2 it started out from the ENE, and ended up from the SE. We had a bit of snow between 1 and 3 pm, when I saw the pecking order buck and the does moving. I am convinced they were in the #2 doe bedding area before the snow came and they entered the #1 bedding area on the NW side while I was there, because the wind told them to move to the furthest downwind bedding area before the storm. If you want to know more, I invite you to read my book, DOMINANCE IS EVERYTHING...To A Monster Whitetail Buck! Copyright 2011. I sell them at www.dominanceiseverything.com 

Today is Day 3 and a D.I.E. Hunt only lasts up to 4 days. It ends when you meet the king of the herd inside 35 yards, or when 4 days pass, whichever comes first. I find that monster bucks are the smartest of all the kings a D.I.E. Hunter can meet, and having a monster racked king hunt me, is a heart racing experience. I pray that God keeps my heart beating when the monster buck shares space with me. That incident has been planned on both his and my calendar now for two days. It will either happen today or tomorrow. My odds are going up as the days and hours in the tree stand pass me by. I have never failed to see a mature buck within 35 yards or less of my tree stand while using my D.I.E. System, and I do not expect to start. God brings the king to me, and my actions in the deer woods, pretending I am a pair of breeding deer, that no real deer can locate, and that the king has to search for in order to meet them, must have something to do with the success I have had hunting this way. 

Up until now I know I am not busted. The king is aware of me as a buck and he has taken the D.I.E. Scrape over. He owns it now. The herd bucks are kept at bay, because the king will not allow any pecking order bucks within 35 yards of his core #1 breeding scrape. He will circle it and he has circled it while I am in the stand, and he will guard it with his life. He wants to see a doe in estrus so today I will show up on time, and expect he will be there waiting for me. Bedded down with his back towards my stand, hoping the doe shows up without her mate today. I will not play two deer today, only one. That way he will feel at ease and make his approach, if all goes the way I want it to. I have faith in D.I.E. and no regrets.

I will post today's activities when I have time tonight or tomorrow. Check in to see what happens as the Deer Whisperer is hunted by a Wisconsin Monster Buck in 2013!

Day 1 of my 2013 WI Bow Hunt is behind me

I have a One-On-One meeting with the king of the herd today. Yesterday was Day 1 of my 2013 Wisconsin Bow Hunt. I got in my stand at 8:48 am and saw a bruiser buck walk away from my D.I.E. Scrape at a distance of 65 yards. I could only see one half of his rack and the length of his main beam was over 20 inches with 2-3" mass. I know I wasn't busted, even though I was 45 minutes late getting there. Darn alarm clock was set for 4:30 pm instead of 4:30 am. 

The day was quiet at the D.I.E. Scrape until 4:40 pm when the king rose from his bed, 45 yards downwind of me and let out a double grunt. He was calling his doe in estrus to him, asking her to go to him, rather than making him come to me. I am his doe in estrus, so of course I played hard to get, and hard of hearing at the same time. 

He waited 4 minutes and galloped 3 jumps away from his bed in a Southerly direction, and then back Northerly again, as if to tell the 'hard of hearing doe in estrus' that he WAS RIGHT OVER HERE!

Again I stayed silent, and then I let out a doe in estrus bleat with my mouth, and voice. He strutted his stuff a few yards in my direction, pushing brush and making his presence known, and then he locked up, and waited for sunset.

I climbed down out of my tree stand and left the area like a buck that was surrendering his mate to the king.

Today is Day 2, and I have a monster buck waiting for me at my D.I.E. Scrape and stand. I am invisible to deer, and I am going to enter the area in broad daylight at 8 am this morning with a mission to meet the king of the herd. The catch is I am bringing another doe in estrus along today, and I am placing a doe decoy within 5 yards of my tree stand, and ten yards upwind of my D.I.E. Scrape. When he gets a look at the D.I.E. Scrape, after I stop my ground motion, and am safely into the tree stand, that king and his competitors are in for an exciting day. I will rattle and grunt to behave as two contenders who are closer to his mate than he is. That will bring him in. In case I get busted or miss the shot I have a secondary location picked out to retreat to, and in that case Day 3 will be needed, but as of right now, I think today is the day that I will meet the king at less than 30 yards and my arrow should fly true to his vitals.

Wish me a safe hunt. I do not need any luck, because I have faith in my DOMINANCE IS EVERYTHING Trophy Buck Hunting System, and I always use it as I direct you to use it. I have no regrets!

I will post the day's results when I get home tonight, along with photos of the king or the buck that I shoot if he is not the king.

God bless you all.

I set up for my first 2013 bow hunt in WI today.

For those who wish to follow my efforts to hunt with D.I.E. this year, I am now anxiously waiting for the king of the herd to find my D.I.E. Scrape and to take it over. I set up my DOMINANCE IS EVERYTHING Trophy Buck Hunting System today in Wisconsin at an undisclosed location. I am waiting 2 days and then I will become a breeding pair of deer and the king of the herd will fight with monster un-ranked bucks to determine which buck is the most dominant. I will then meet the winner within a few yards of my 2013 D.I.E. Scrape, which I put in the woods today.

I will shoot the king this year, or a monster buck that is un-ranked, whichever shows up first!

I intend to hunt in WI with my bow and my gun this season, and I will take a buck with each tag.

I may also be hunting in OH, MN, MO, later on this year if I have time.

My goal is to shoot at least 2 kings and up to 4 kings depending on the amount of private lessons I have at the time.

I invite you to hunt with D.I.E. this fall. All you need to do is buy a copy of my first book, read it, and use it as directed. It is as easy as that. Check back here for photos of my buck and stories I will write about the bucks that I encounter while walking among deer unnoticed.

Send in your testimonials, and I will post your photos on my web site.

What to expect if you hunt with D.I.E.!

DOMINANCE IS EVERYTHING is a Trophy Buck Hunting System, (when used 100% as directed) it calls out the Most Dominant Buck in any herd, it also attracts Challenging Intruder Bucks, Un-Ranked Monster-Racked Bucks and Swamp Bucks. Does in heat or in estrus will come to a D.I.E. Scrape too, but not fawns of either sex or yearling bucks, and certainly not the pecking order of the king of the herd. They are banned from ever approaching a D.I.E. Scrape.

The king of the herd and his competitors compete to dominate the D.I.E. Scrape which you have set up within 35 yards of your tree stand before the hunt. Only one mature buck will approach within 35 yards of you at a time. The king of the herd will come in during daylight, in any four consecutive day period of the rut, as long as you are invisible to deer, and you are in your stand waiting for him. 

When the a mature buck comes within 35 yards of you on a D.I.E. hunt you have indeed succeeded and the system performed 100% for you. If you are sure that he is not the king of the herd, you can pass him up and wait for the king. In my book I teach you how to know the king by his behavior. Many first time D.I.E. Hunters shoot the first buck that comes in close, and many times he is a challenging intruder or an unranked monster buck. Either way, the hunter is the hunted and the hunt is complete. 

My system makes big bucks fight over the right to come to you. They are not informing each other that a human is in their world. Traditional Deer Hunters are blown away when they trust my teachings and use D.I.E. as directed. They call me and tell me "Your D.I.E. System works!" I know it does, and I can tell in their voice that they were skeptics when they hunted with it, because they found it hard to believe that a deer hunter could see a miracle on every hunt, but with DOMINANCE IS EVERYTHING (my hunting tactics) you can. Thanks be to God!

I teach you to become an invisible pair of breeding deer. The king hunts you believing you are both the buck and the doe, while his competition seek out just the (invisible) doe to mate with. Every buck that comes in is either the king of the herd or he is willing to fight the king of the herd for the right to mate with the invisible doe. You are the invisible doe and you are also an invisible ex-dominant monster-racked buck, that the real bucks and does cannot find. For those reasons I want to be in a tree stand and not hunting on the ground, so the monster - racked buck can never reach his goals. 

Always be safe when hunting with D.I.E.! 

Remember you are 'the hunted', and every mature buck that comes within 35 yards of you is not just passing through. He is on a mission to meet the doe (to breed) while avoiding a confrontation with the invisible monster buck if at all possible. You have to use D.I.E. as directed in order to meet the king. If you mess up, or intentionally modify the D.I.E. System then the king will not approach your stand in daylight.

 Challenging intruder bucks, some with huge racks of antlers will still fight for the right to come in, but they only fight each other, because the king warns his herd that a human is present. The dominant buck and his pecking order bucks will stay away from all humans.

Read my D.I.E. book, attend a D.I.E. seminar, or hire me for a private lesson, so you know what to expect. 

 To this day, every person who used my D.I.E. System 100% as directed, has been within 35 yards of a mature buck while using my tactics and hunting within 35 yards of a D.I.E. Scrape. Some hunters modified the system, sometimes that meant not using the scrape itself. Only some of them succeeded. I am hearing from them, and I am posting their testimonials on my web page.

David Stoelb of Sheboygan County WI is #28 in the D.I.E. Hunter's Pecking Order

It is a great accomplishment to buy a book, DOMINANCE IS EVERYTHING...To A Monster Whitetail Buck!©2011, and then use the system in that book on a deer hunt, and to have two big bucks come to you in less than a week. Harvesting one of those bucks with a bow, is another great accomplishment. Wouldn't you agree?

Well this is the story of a man from Sheboygan County Wisconsin, who successfully harvested a mature 11-pointer while on his first D.I.E. Hunt on November 11, 2012. He emailed his testimonial in to me at the address I provided in my book mydiehuntresults@gmail.com but due to the distractions of training deer hunters year-round, and me forgetting to check that email account until 6 months after 2012 deer season ended, I did not give David Stoelb the credit he had coming.

Two weeks ago I saw his testimonial for the first time, and it is an awesome one. The buck he shot is a dandy in any deer hunter's book. He is a beautiful animal, with a rack I would love to have on my wall. I do not envy David, I applaud him for his efforts.

I stopped ranking people in the D.I.E. Hunter's Pecking Order in late November 2012 because I was hearing of hundreds of Pope & Young caliber whitetail bucks being harvested by deer hunters using my D.I.E. System. I call those men D.I.E. Hunters. I have personally taught 8 women in classroom and 2 in the field, but to my knowledge none of them has called to tell me they hunted with D.I.E. and made a harvest, so it may be until this fall before a woman succeeds with it.

Knowing now that David Stoelb had harvested his 11-point D.I.E. Buck on November 11th 2012, and that the D.I.E. Hunter's Pecking Order was alive and well, welcoming new members into its ranks on that day, I see it fitting to award David Stoelb, with the rank of #28 in the world with DOMINANCE IS EVERYTHING®.

(BELOW) is DAVID'S TESTIMONIAL & A PHOTOGRAPH of his POPE & YOUNG Record Book Buck (coming out in the next printing of the Pope & Young Record Book, along with my 17 pointer) David said the buck scored 153+"

My expertise is unmatched... Read this and believe me...It is tough not to!

Recently I was submitting some seminar topic ideas to a promoter of a Sports Show, and after letting him choose a couple of topics from this list of six, I am an expert at, I decided to share them with you (the public).

These are all topics I am writing about and will have either books or pamphlets written about in the future. I think every deer hunter should know how to scout for deer not for a tree stand, and know how deer think when you are not around. That way you can think like they will be when you are around, and you can make a choice. 

The Dominance Is Everything Deer Hunting System
'Hunt' of be 'The Hunted' - It's a choice!

2013 Seminar Topics for Sports Shows
  1. Dominance Is Everything - Hunting Dominant Bucks
  2. Dominance Is Everything - How Deer Communicate
  3. Dominance Is Everything - How to find the daytime haunts of monster bucks
  4. Dominance Is Everything  How to become invisible to deer, on foot, in a tree, and while moving
  5. Dominance Is Everything - How to approach bedded down deer in daylight to within 35 yards
  6. Dominance Is Everything - How to find a mature buck, on any parcel of land.
I have over 100 additional topics that I may teach in the future, many of which no one has ever taught about before me. I believe that anyone that reads my book or comes to a D.I.E. Seminar, will know more about whitetail deer behavior when they complete the book, or attend a seminar, than 99% of the world's population. 

I am also quite sure that each of clients who walked land with me on a One-On-One is skilled enough to be able to find the three core doe bedding areas within every dominant buck's herd (something I discovered and wrote about in my book). They know how to identify their location from looking at one shredded buck rub, one deer bed impression, or viewing one deer feeding on a field, no matter what time of the year they see those signs of deer. They have seen deer sign both fresh and old, and I have taught them to 'read it like a deer'. These folks who I call D.I.E. Hunters are good at thinking like a deer. They love it! 

The best part of learning the whole DOMINANCE IS EVERYTHING concept of making bucks fight over you, is the fact that it has not failed to bring the king within 35 yards of its user. That means when you use D.I.E you have a date with the king of the herd. How awesome is that? I have learned from deer, that a human can mimic deer behavior, and be invisible to deer, at the same time. I am proud to share my tactics with anyone willing to learn. 

The progress that I myself and the other D.I.E. Book owners are making towards getting a complete understanding of whitetail deer behavior is huge. We share stories of our hunts with one another and the DOMINANCE IS EVERYTHING Deer Hunting System is the common denominator in every story. It makes you invisible to deer, and then, it makes deer believe you are a pair of deer that have come from a mile or more away. They hunt you! The biggest - racked bucks in the herd do! They will not tolerate a challenging intruder in their midst. It is the easiest way to see a big buck in the rut, and to know if he isn't the king, that the king is still on his way!


You are not human when you hunt with D.I.E., because no deer will ever 'hunt' a human, therefore you could never tell a deer that you are human. Only you know you are. I teach you not to ever tell any animals in the woods, that way they have to guess what you are. Most deer are happy guessing, and they do not even care that you are there walking among the herd in daylight, but the king of the herd cares. He is the sole owner of his territory, and he will not allow any deer, buck or doe, to live (bed) with his herd members without checking in with him. You must believe that deer are smart, in order to believe in the D.I.E. System. All mature deer are smart. I believe it, and so do my readers, and those who have hunted with my tactics since 2001 (when I taught the first person). You see folks you are what the dominant buck and his competitors are brainwashed into believing you are, and that is a breeding pair of deer. 

No, we do not wear deer hides. We do not put any scent on our bodies or clothing. I never advise endangering yourself in any way. Every moment of a D.I.E. hunt has been scripted before you start into it. You are presenting the herd there with real-life situations, and you will offer them up to deer in a manner that they believe that the signs you leave are real. Made by real live deer-not a human. If they believe it who are you to burst their bubble. Remember by following the step-by-step instructions for making a D.I.E. Scrape and by hunting (going to and from it) in daylight as I teach, you are telling the deer that you are a real intruder buck or doe. The D.I.E. system works for everyone because I did my homework, before I decided to share it with anyone. 

I studied hundreds of deer in a 6 mile by 3.5 mile area for 6 years and in that time I learned from them what signs they leave while eating, drinking, walking, defecating, urinating, bedding for a short time, bedding for a long period, encountering other deer that are in no danger, encountering other deer that are fleeing danger, etc... 

I read deer sign, and I think like a deer so I know what the deer that left the sign, was thinking. In my book and at each of my seminars and One-On-Ones I teach you to see deer sign from their perspective, and to analyze it as I have for the past three decades in secrecy. It does not matter where the sign is on the land, or what the weather forecast is, when a D.I.E. hunter finds any deer sign they are trained by me to read it, to know what it means to other deer, and to know what to do because of your discovery of it.

You too can read the signs deer leave, but the secret is to 'read them like a deer', and to forget you are a hunter or a human (if not a hunter), it takes you out of the Traditional Deer Hunter viewpoint and into the D.I.E. Hunter mentality. Think of it as you have to be a deer when you are moving, a bush when standing still, and the wind blowing through the trees while walking on the edges of cover if you must. Deer are used to those things. They see them in everyday life. Every step of every day is a decision for a deer. Do I step there or don't I? It could mean their death if they do or if they don't! This is not about humans folks! It is not what you would do if you were them. It is what a dominant buck would think you are if you walked one way rather than another. You see he is the only enforcer of the deer laws. 


I Robert J. Mercier (Bob) invented the DOMINANCE IS EVERYTHING Deer Hunting System, and until now I have held a low profile. Times are changing for all of us D.I.E. Hunters (we number over 2000), and it is time for the rest of America to see that this is for real, and it is for everyone. No one has failed to see it work just as I say it does. It brings the king of the herd to a hunter, in less than 4 consecutive days of the rut. You can use my 'walking like a deer' tactics to walk into deer bedding areas all year long and shoot a deer, or take its picture that way too. It is up to you to do what you want with the information I am providing to you in my book. 

I am taking my system nationwide this year. It is going to be in stores this fall. With the help of those who already own a copy of my book we are sending a message to every man, woman or child across America. If you want to learn about whitetail deer then get your hands on a copy of Bob J. Mercier's "DOMINANCE IS EVERYTHING...To A Monster Whitetail Buck!" copyright 2011. You will not be disappointed!

Read Paul's own words (below)

"First thing I want to say is WOW! The D.I.E. system really works. The information that is in the book make sense and is easy to understand. Thank you Bob for putting a book like this together. I have used the D.I.E. System and on my first hunt with it I bagged the biggest buck of my life. I modified the system because I had not quite read the whole book. I use the information in the book to put up my stand in the best location for success. The day I hunted the area the first time I walked like a deer to my stand and walked within 15 yards of a monster buck and he never even knew I was there. He thought I was a doe walking by. When I got in my stand the buck was only 15 yard out he was making his way towards me. He was looking for the the doe(me walking like a deer). I took the shot and now I have a huge 10 point buck hanging on my wall. I could not have done this without the knowledge that I have gained from this book. Once again, thank you Bob you have changed the way I hunt, and the way I think about deer."

Bill Haga got a 14-pt. D.I.E. buck

I am proud to announce that Bill Haga has broken the mold for D.I.E. Hunters. Bill was hunting land that one of his friends owned in WI this gun season. His friend was using my D.I.E. Scrape and the entire system and Bill decided he would not. He would only behave as a deer and make all deer that hear him, smell him, or look at him, believe he is a deer. Because D.I.E. hunters are sure to be scent-free and do not put any deer scent on our body, the buck that beds downwind of us has to come to find us in order to identify us as a deer. That is what Bill figured on when he went afield on opening day of the 2012 -WI gun deer season.

Bill told me he is 70 years old and he walked 400 yards in daylight on Day 1 of the 2012 WI gun deer hunt, just to get to his stand in daylight and to avoid bothering his friend's ultimate D.I.E. Set up a couple of hundred yards away. When he got there he settled into his stand and within a few minutes this 14-pointer rose from his bed over 100 yards away and started his mission to enter the area that Bill was situated in. Bill shot the buck at 50 yards with his rifle. Bill told me he knew he was invisible. Bill never had a buck with a rack like this one, ever walk close by like this one did. He said it was different to walk among deer in daylight and he will be using the D.I.E. system on his next hunt.

All in all there were 4 hunters on the land that Bill Haga # 27 in the world with D.I.E., hunted and each of them shot a dandy mature buck within a few hundred yards of the land owner's D.I.E. Scrape.

My D.I.E. System will bring the most dominant buck in the area at the time within 35 yards of the system's user if the hunter allows the buck to advance. In Bill Haga's case he shot the buck at 50 yards as he was in the open. Bill chose to shoot because he had a gun and could make a fatal shot. It is up to you to use my system as you choose. I would have shot the buck at the first moment I could have as well. In the case of gun hunters many of them shoot the buck outside 35 yards, but I am sure if they waited the buck would indeed come in.

All I can say is what more does a person have to hear in order to want to order my book. Right now they are only $39.99 ea. SALE RUNS THROUGH JAN 20 2013.
