Jarrod Erdody started NextBuk Outdoors (formerly Blood Brothers Outdoors) in 2002 out of a desire to “break the mold” that most hunting videos seem to fit into these days. Jarrod’s friends and mentors in deer hunting pointed out something obvious to him that is not being shown on television or hunting videos these days; anyone with the desire, determination, and dedication, can kill mature bucks consistently. Jarrod’s goal is to demonstrate how to do this through instructional hunting videos that show you how to take your whitetail hunting to the next level.
“Watch today’s hunting shows and DVDs, and a person might get the impression that to kill big bucks, one needs to own a lot of land, plant lots of food plots, run lots of trail cameras, and leave properties undisturbed. In other words, it takes a lot of money. Although that scenario works, it’s not your only option. I’ve met and become friends with many hunters that knock down big bucks every year, and they don’t have bottomless wallets. They don’t travel all over. They don’t use outfitters to put them in front of big deer. They do it by scouting. I’ll say it again, they do it by scouting! And when they can’t find a big buck to hunt, they scout until they do. They know how to find them and when to move in. Meeting guys like this…guys like Lee Gatzke, Andrae D’Acquisto, Paul Ranft, and many others are why I wanted to make these instructional hunting videos. Big bucks are a product of their environment. They must be hunted based on the local terrain and pressure. For this reason, I’ve chosen to focus each of our videos on how to hunt specific types of terrain. Each video features hunters that get it done time and time again
on their own. We demonstrate the scouting behind the hunts. We’ll show you exactly how we determine where and when to hunt. The only secret is that there are no secrets…there’s no magic pixie dust to consistently killing big bucks. If you want it bad enough and are willing to put in the time and effort, you can do it too.”
Jarrod lives in Plainwell, Michigan with his wife and three children, where he operates Erdody Studios, a graphic arts business with national clientele, many of which are in the hunting industry.
