I’ve always looked at the whitetail hunting world a bit sideways. Between all the trail cams, food plots, expensive leases, and nicknamed deer, it all seemed more like a high tech circus than the immersive nature experience that I’ve always sought through hunting.
But then last year, out of nowhere, a large, impressively antlered whitetail showed up on the farm where I live and spent the summer months bedding in our hayfields, sunning his velvet rack and eating our vegetables.
In this episode Aric and I talk about this buck, and the season I spent chasing him. And of course, it’s complicated.
