Mid Afternoon Monster

Well Randy never thought that this being his first time hunting with Whitetail Xtreme would start off with such a pig of a deer! After arriving in camp and shooting in his gun Randy was taken to see where he would be hunting. Randy would be hunting in one of our new box blind sets that overlooks some of our newly planted food plots. With this particular location and most of our sets, we always recommend an all day sit. You just never know when that buck of a lifetime will decide to stretch his legs, look for that doe still in heat and walk on by. Well the first morning was full of action as Randy passed up on numerous deer that just were not mature enough. Wrapping up the morning with some great action Randy settled in for the afternoon anticipating the approaching final few hours of daylight which typically lends itself to more deer movement. Not long after lunch he spotted some deer moving through and prepared for the shot if need be. As the deer moved closer within range through the Iowa timber and along one of the many ditches Iowa is famous for (or infamous!!) he could see that it was a buck! With each step the buck took Randy prepared for the shot and continued to peer through his scope waiting for that conclusive view that this would be the one! Finally, the buck stepped through a clearing and turned his head towards him. "No doubt on this one"!...... The buck presented the shot and Randy did not hesitate in taking it!
This heavy horned pig hit the dirt at approximately 1:30pm. It's massive main beams were just over 24 inches inside and carried mass the entire length of its beams. Green score B&C on this deer just over 189 inches!! WOW!
Hunting the great state of Iowa, you just never know when that buck of a lifetime will walk on by!! Never forget that midafternoon can be just as productive as early morning or evening! Great job Randy!
