The Whitetail Freaks team definitely knows big deer, and that includes Freak Tyler Rees. In this episode of Monster Bucks, Rees is hunting the late muzzleloader season in Iowa, and he's flying solo, self-filming, while he does it. Besides that challenge, the weather isn't cooperating.

“One of the key things with late-season hunting is cold weather,” Rees said. “And we don’t have it. It’s 30 degrees, and that’s not cold for this time of year. The bucks are chill. They can do whatever they want. So we had to get closer to their bedroom tonight. It’s a tough deal this time of year when you don’t get the temperatures and the snow. But we have to go at it anyway.”

Looks like he beat the odds.
