Watch Here: Youth Hunter Tags Early Season Kansas Buck

Doug Hampton has been filming hunts for quite some time. Now part of The Rival team, he continues sharing his passion for the outdoors.

In this episode of Monster Bucks, Doug Hampton’s son, Eli, hunts the early youth season in Kansas. The Land of Oz is good any time of year, but it’s even better before the real pressure starts. Doug and Eli planned to capitalize on that. But the youth hunter had one worry.

“The only thing concerning me right now is there’s a glare in the scope,” Eli said.

“Well, there’s probably not going to be one when that sun goes down,” Doug replied. “I would doubt we’ll see anything for a little while. But we’ll be ready if we do.”

And then a stud stepped out.
