Watch Here: David Holder Hunts Over Rub Line from a Ground Blind

In this episode of Monster Bucks, Raised Hunting's David Holder is hunting over a rub line from a ground blind during the rut. A buck walks up, works over a signpost rub, and stares Holder down at point-blank range.

“You talk about shaking. This was it,” Holder said. “He just fell. I think he’s caught in a fence. It sounds like he was rolling down the hill. I don’t know what to say. I haven’t had a good deer close to me all year. And that’s a good one. What a show.”

What a show indeed.
