Whitetail Freaks’ Don Kisky is a legendary midwestern deer hunter. He’s taken countless Iowa whitetails that anyone would be proud of.

In this episode of Monster Bucks, Kisky heads afield solo. With no cameraman in tow, he has to self film. Shortly after getting settled into the blind, a nice deer steps out. And things start unfolding pretty fast. He takes the shot. The deer takes off out of sight.

“Here’s the deal with what happened,” Kisky said. “I wanted to spot for blood before I went to get the buggy and Kandi. So, I tracked blood for a little ways. Great blood spraying out. I walked up to the edge and jumped the dang buck. That’s after I waited almost an hour. Obviously, it wasn’t double-lunged. I think it was single lung and liver. So we made the decision last night to not push the deer again.”

That proved to be the right call. They found the wide 10-pointer a short way into the track.
