Monster Bucks wouldn’t be the same without David Blanton in the mix. He’s a staple in the series and knows how to get on big whitetails. In this episode, he cashes in on yet another giant deer. Heading to Iowa with the CVA in hand, he’s prepped and ready for some late-season fun.

“I cannot believe that just happened,” Blanton said. “This is the hottest day that we’ve had. It was 55 degrees in the truck coming out here. It’s crazy. We said don’t be surprised if it doesn’t happen on a day like today. But when you least expect it, you can expect it.”

Lining up the crosshairs on a corn-fed giant is what the late season is all about. (Realtree photo)
