Buckventures' Daniel McVay takes a quartering-to shot on a giant buck, and at first, things don't look good
In this installment of Monster Bucks, Daniel McVay sits high in a tree in Nowheresville, Oklahoma, and he's after a 180-inch giant. The monarch chases does into the open several times, but McVay has to watch the buck a long time before he gets a shot at him. Then, when he finally does, things get tense.
This hunt originally aired on Monster Bucks XXIII Volume 2.
Hunt Tactic Used: As you can see in the footage, McVay is camped out in an island-like pocket of cover with open prairie around it. Knowing key locations like this to hang treestands can make or break your season.
Whitetails make the hunting world go round. Josh Honeycutt, deer hunting editor and "Brow Tines and Backstrap" blogger, knows a fair bit about killing mature deer. He was raised up hunting the river bottoms of Kentucky. And he still hunts there—among other places—to this day.
Follow along as he shares his adventures, experiences and knowledge of the white-tailed deer.
