Watch Here: Bowhunter Rattles in Late-Season Iowa Buck

Midwest Whitetail has a team of real-life guys and girls who hunt the way you do, and live the whitetail lifestyle. In this episode of Monster Bucks, staffer Brad Bever is high in a stand with Jared Mills during the late season in Iowa.

“It’s the evening of November 30,” Bever said. “Jared and I have slipped into this little spot on the project farm. There are a lot of mature bucks in here. I’m not going to be picky. The first mature buck I get a shot at, I’m going to take. We’ll see what happens.”

Bever gets aggressive and calls in a giant buck. It isn’t something you see often. But when it works, it's a sight like nothing else. The buck gives a quartering-away shot right underneath Bever's stand.
