Kyle Barefield of The Resistance TV took this nice deer in Texas. He rattled in this nice 11-pointer, which exhibits loads of character in its rack. This is yet another deer that proves rattling can be effective in certain situations.

Michael Lee from Backwoods Life TV had an incredible season. Here is with one of two bucks he killed in Texas this season. Don’t you love how those main beams just go up and out? This is a great scoring (gross wise) buck.

Here’s Michael Lee again with the other buck he took. This deer’s genetics are almost exactly opposite (frame wise) from the first buck. Notice how this buck’s beams sweep out and in and almost touch in the middle. That’s one of many things that make whitetails so captivating — no two are alike.

Check out this hunt where he killed a Florida gobbler with a pistol. Or this one where he killed his biggest buck ever. Simply put, he’s a machine.
