Bone Collector’s Michael Waddell is pretty lethal on whitetails. Put him in a timber block with a whitetail and he’ll hunt that son of a gun down and slap a tag on him faster than a calf wrestler at a rodeo.
In this episode of Monster Bucks, Waddell hunts his home farm in the South. He’s a proud Georgia native. And he’s even prouder when a big Peach State buck trots down the hill.
“Good morning from Dixieland,” Waddell said. “Here it is, in Georgia, the week leading up to Halloween. And we are hoping to catch one of these big, old, mature bucks cruising for a doe. This traditionally has been a good week. And it’s hard because of swirling winds. But this morning, we’ve got a wind kind of coming out of the East with a little bit of North in it. I hope we have enough [thermal] rise to get away with it."
By the looks of things, he did. And a little celebratory swelling of the chest, and beating of the drums, may or may not have happened thereafter.
