Watch Here: Biggest True Velvet 8-Pointer Ever Killed on Camera? associate editor and Midwest Whitetail team member Josh Honeycutt is passionate about whitetails. It’s a way of life for him.

In this episode of Monster Bucks, he hunts a big deer he’s followed for two years. It all unfolds on the 50-acre family farm.

“Well, we’re back after him — the Big 8,” Honeycutt said. “We’re hoping that he comes out. We’ve cut the distance in half from where we sat on him last time, and I’m hoping that gives us just enough that he makes it to us in daylight. So, we’ve done a hang-and-hunt specifically for this deer.”

A pop-up thunderstorm moves through the area and gets the big deer up on its feet earlier than normal.
