Are you a D.I.E. Hunter? Do you own a copy of my book? Do you want others to know about it?

Loyal Customers,

Today I was contacted by three people who wanted me to train them in the wild on property that they have been hunting for many years. These three people are not one party, they are individuals who heard about me and my deer hunting tactics, from the comments one of their friends or family members was making about me and the way I teach others to understand the true meaning of all sign left by deer.

These people and over 1300 others are excited to go deer hunting for the first time in 2014 with the DOMINANCE IS EVERYTHING Trophy Buck Hunting System.

I am as excited for them as they are, because I know they will encounter majestic bucks, and these men and women will be changed forever. Once you see the truth, there is no mistaking it.

It has been two years since I published a new print ad for the D.I.E. Book. I now have more than 3000 customers, who are helping me spread the word to other deer hunters that everyone should hunt with Bob J. Mercier's tactics, because they work. They bring monster racked bucks within 35 yards or less of you, on every hunt, because of the way you behave, and the way you do not ever inform the deer that they are being hunted, but not only that! It is because I am the only man on earth with the knowledge of what deer think, and I am teaching the facts about deer to society, one person at a time.

If you want to help promote the D.I.E. System, then here is how you can help!

Please copy and print this NEW ADVERTISEMENT, and pin it up in your supermarket, sporting goods store, gas station, community building, supper club, auto repair shop, barber shop, convenience store, or local tavern, so the deer hunters in your city or town will not be left out this fall, when D.I.E. System Users take to the woods, to be hunted by kings of deer herds, and their competitors.

If you do not own a copy of my D.I.E. Book, then review this ad, and contact me to ORDER ONE TODAY! There are over 400 pages, and it will take you 16-20 hours to read it. Some people read it multiple times to drill the data into their heads. So they tell me.

Crossbow hunting for deer in Wisconsin is for everyone in 2014. It is about time!

I am anxious to shoot my new crossbow, and I am guessing that tens of thousands of other Wisconsinites are anxious to do the same. Thanks to one of my Private Lesson clients Troy Thielbar - Owner of Trophy Hunter's Supply in Seymour Wisconsin. I am now the proud owner of a 2014 Barnett Raptor Crossbow. (pictured here)

Up until now I have always shot deer with my first and only compound bow, a 1993 Browning X-CELL 2000. I get lots of comments from the bow hunters I have taught in seminars, that I am shooting 'old school'. They are certainly right there!

See my Browning X-Cell Photo Here-- I am on the right and Tom Earle is on the left.


I am not one to brag about my shooting skills in the past but I will be one to show you what I can do in the future. I found out last fall that my bow site was off and I was shooting 9 inches off to the right. That is the reason I missed the monster 10-pointer in 2009 at 8-feet. That is tough to admit but it is true. See this photo taken by Scott Anderson of that buck in August 2009 12 weeks before he hunted me. His mass was exceptional. He was the 5th biggest buck I had seen up to then while hunting with my own methods a.k.a. the D.I.E. System.

I aimed for his spine (standing right above him). I could have speared him from there. I could not believe my eyes when the arrow flew straight to his right shoulder blade, hit it and stuck in the ground. That buck didn't know what hit him, but he knew something did. He looked up and I stared at his back, not looking him in the eyes. Thirty seconds later he lowered his head and moved towards my D.I.E. Scrape which was 10 yards away. By the time I got a second arrow set, he was past the scrape and only offered me a shot at his hind flanks. I passed, and he walked away with a shoulder scar and no blood loss, so he would still be king the next day.

He retreated to the swamp on the neighboring parcel 100 yards to my SW and two and a half hours later a 17-point buck with non-typical antlers charged the spot that I call the 'landing'. A place that is 35 yards straight downwind of one of my D.I.E. System Scrapes. I invented the D.I.E. Scrape, as you know it makes the king of the herd come to you wherever you make it, and he will search for its maker for at least 4 consecutive days in the rut.


The 17-point buck pictured above was in a race with another monster buck (10 or 12 pointer, I caught a glimpse as he ran away) came out of the same swamp at a dead run (gallop). They both got to the 'landing' at the same time, and the took it upon themselves to fight with antlers tickling and heavy grunting... the 17-pointer won the battle and let out three long monster buck growls that made the hair on the back of my neck stand up. It sounded like a bear was growling. The other buck ran off, going in a semi-circle upwind of the D.I.E. Scrape never getting closer than 35 yards of it. He was yielding to the most dominant buck in the area at the time.

That 17-pointer then charged straight towards me (not knowing I was there of course). There was a major deer travel corridor between him and I and being that I was situated upwind of him he had to gallop to the trail. When deer run they do so directly into the 2-inch wind, unless their life is in danger. In that instance a deer will run in whatever direction the closest cover away from the threat is, regardless of the wind.

When the now dominant buck in the area (17-pointer) hit the one-way deer trail, he turned the only way he could... toward my D.I.E. Scrape, and I grunted at him with my voice. One long tending grunt and he stopped in his tracks. I held my aim on his ribs behind his right shoulder and let the arrow fly. Even though I was shaking and the sight on my bow was hitting 9-inches off center I still made a killing shot through the liver and out the back of his left lung. He went 80 yards and fell down dead. I recovered him in a lowland in 4 inches of standing water. His rack scored 172 4/8" non typical, with 17 legal points and a 19.5" inside spread. He was aged at 5 1/2 years. I am thrilled to have recovered him and I am very proud of that hunt.

That 17-point buck has become the buck on the DOMINANCE IS EVERYTHING logo which is a registered trademark of the DOMINANCE IS EVERYTHING Deer Hunting System. (See photo below) Tom Earle of Palmyra WI is the artist who drew the logo.


The buck that was the most dominant in the area at 7 am was the 10-pointer with a rack that many people estimated was 180" class. I am sure he commanded the herd. He had a typical 10-point rack, a huge body, and 15" G2s and G3s.

He may have been close to a state record with a bow, but I will never know. I was fortunate that my D.I.E. System does not fail to bring in the competitors of the kings of herds, after the king has come and gone, or before the king ever finds the D.I.E. Scrape. If you set it up correctly the king of the herd finds it within 72 hours of you constructing the D.I.E. Scrape. I have taught it that way for over 13 years to over 3000 people and to this day that and every other fact I state in my book, have been proven by those who use my DOMINANCE IS EVERYTHING System as directed.

One thing remains the same. I always set up my D.I.E. Scrape and Tree Stand with the same method, and I train others to do what I do. Kings of deer herds cannot stay away from a D.I.E. Scrape for more than 4 consecutive days during daylight or they are no longer king of the herd. You will meet the most dominant buck, and whether you feel hunted or not, when that mature (two year old or older) breeder buck walks within 35 yards of you while you are using my tactics including the D.I.E. Scrape or Not Including a D.I.E. Scrape, then you have succeeded at learning from me, that DOMINANCE IS EVERYTHING...To A Monster Whitetail Buck!

Last year in 2013 I was hunting in Central Wisconsin with my bow and on the first day I encountered a 150" class 8-point buck at 15 yards. I passed on him because I wanted the king of the herd, and by observing his behavior while walking, and trotting I knew it was not the king. I was right! At ten o'clock on Day 2 of my hunt, I heard the king of the herd make his approach towards my stand location. He stiff-legged through 8 inches of oak leaves and ground clutter, making his foot steps resemble someone dragging their feet on a gravel road. That is typical behavior of the king of the herd when you challenge him to a fight within 35 yards of your tree stand, as all D.I.E. Hunters do when using my D.I.E. System as directed. The buck walked past me and then held up in cover 50 yards away. I waited until 2 pm and he never left the area. I believe he bedded down just out of sight of me. Later on I was interfered with by a trespasser and I yelled at him to get off the land. The problem was I forgot that the king was bedded me at that moment, and he got up and left. He went to the highest hilltop within view of my D.I.E. Scrape and grunted as he walked back and forth. When you tell the buck you are a human, in any way, (as I did in that case) he will retreat and hold in a patch of cover that protects him from the human, yet allows him to still dominate his entire herd. His grunting was informing the deer, in the area that I (a human threat) was near one of their main trails to their evening food source and that any deer that heard him should quickly get to a gallop and gather in a group on the hill he was on, if they wanted to be safe. That is what all the deer did. They went to their king and held there as one group until sunset, then they made their way through the hardwood forest to their congregation zone. A nearby pasture and overgrown corn field.

I injured my left elbow while placing my tree stand on that hunt, last October, and since then I was told I have tennis elbow. I wondered if I would be able to pull my bow back and hold it (set at 62 pounds with 35% let off) long enough for a shot on my hunts later on in the fall. I found out that my arm hurt so much I had to keep my left elbow straight before attempting to draw my bow, and under those circumstances it was hard to hold it without constant pain. I wished that crossbows were legal for everyone but at that time they were only allowed to be used by someone who was incapable of using a compound bow, or was over the age of 65 years.

Later on, in November 2013 I heard on the radio that WI DNR had passed a ruling allowing anyone who can obtain an archery deer license to use a crossbow or a bow. Now it would be a choice for everyone to make. Those like me who are for this change, are glad to finally see that deer hunters should all be able to hunt with the same choice of weapons (based on hunter safety) not based on who you are.

You know as well as I do that times are changing. Lots of people used to believe that compound bow users were not as skilled as recurve bow users, and that using crossbows, or state of the art equipment was cheating. Not so. Today, things are different, we look at those things as options, not ways to cheat. Anyone who is law abiding can buy a deer hunting license in Wisconsin, as long as they pass a Hunter's Safety Exam and take the classes of course. Back in the day, before I became a hunter (not to long before 1979) people did not need a Hunter Safety Certificate of Completion. Why? I do not know. Maybe there were not any classes offered, or maybe so many people were responsible gun owners that they did not think it was necessary back then. Anyway times changed and the DNR implemented Game Laws for us to follow.




As a law abiding gun owner, and 1979 Hunter Safety Certificate holder, (Photo above - is my official patch) I for one, am glad there are laws governing the legal harvest of wild game, but that does not mean that I agree with all the laws. The way I see it, if you can live by the rules in the state(s) that you are licensed to hunt, then you will have many more years to enjoy the sport you love the most... deer hunting, and if the law saws you can choose to use a crossbow to harvest a deer, then by golly I am going to exercise my right to do so, and I am not going to put if off for 21 years like I did when it came to upgrading my compound bow. In my case, still having a sore elbow, using new equipment is the best way for me to be successful as an archer, whether I hunt with a crossbow or a compound bow, it is my choice to make.

I do not compare myself to others with regards to who is a better hunter. My reputation speaks for itself. You may have more bucks, but I have no more about deer than you do. I want to hit what I aim at, so this year I will use new equipment or I will be sure it is shooting straight before heading afield.

I hope you will use DOMINANCE IS EVERYTHING on your next hunt, because it is now a choice for you to make. Having an extensive knowledge of how deer behave, what it means, and knowing what to expect from deer when you do a certain behavior, and learn to leave deer sign instead of human sign, is a skill. It is not cheating. Why wait to get the latest information. It is available to you now. Those who wait to purchase my book(s) will be left in the dark ages while hundreds of thousands  of deer hunters across the country move forward using my tactics and they will see instant results, just as the first 3000 American D.I.E. HUNTERS have seen. Gun, bow, crossbow, or muzzle loader does not matter to the deer. Just make a good shot and hunt according to the laws in your state and we will set a new standard (you and I) that all the future deer hunters in America can be taught right from the start. Success is imminent for the users of the D.I.E. Scrape as long as they never tell any deer that a human was there and that the human is coming back.

You can depend on my teachings being FACTS that I can prove and you can see for yourself on every hunt for the rest of your life. The D.I.E. System is not the only way to hunt deer. It is another way, and for those who do not like traditional methods or playing the waiting game, hoping to see a monster buck, DOMINANCE IS EVERYTHING is the system that is right for you.

I will continue to write books, put on indoor and outdoor seminars, provide private lessons to people who want to learn. I will provide guided set-ups, land analysis (showing you the borders between kings of different herds).  I am offering to Guide you in the field with my tactics. I am living my dream, of teaching others to hunt as I do, and I am changing the outcome of their future hunting trips one hunter at a time.

Help me spread the word. If you read my book and you love it, then tell a friend where to get it. If you are a store owner and you would like to sell my books then please contact me immediately.
