Watch Here: David Blanton Hunts Big Typical 12-Pointer in Texas

Last year, David Blanton had what anyone would refer to as the deer season of a lifetime. He took three giant whitetails.

In this episode of Monster Bucks, Blanton hunts hard for one specific buck. It’s a Texas giant. And it takes 12 solid days of hunting to catch up with him.

“I can see deer way off in that mesquite,” Blanton said. “There’s this big, giant wheat field we’re alongside of. Paul thinks these deer have sort of moved over to this wheat field. He thinks the frost has killed all of the natural browse and now they’re really hitting this wheat. These deer are just going back and forth.”

One of them ends up being a huge, typical, 6-by-6 whitetail.

Crouching down next to a deer like this is every whitetail hunter's dream. (Realtree photo)
