The Best of the Midwest Whitetail 2019-20 Deer Season


The Midwest Whitetail team prides itself in producing great deer hunting content. Last year was no different, and Bill Winke himself said it might just be the best season yet. Check out the five episodes that viewers watched the most.

1. Long Lost Buck Returns, Rut Ramp Up

Release Date: 10-28-19

Start Time: 0:00

With a marginal wind, Bill decides to hold off hunting any of his target bucks. Instead, he goes to his favorite stand location. With no targets showing up in this area, he can only hope for luck. By the end of the night, Bill tags a giant buck he's been searching for since last year. Then, we catch up with multiple members of the team as they roll through late October, taking advantage of the great weather.

2. Snort-Wheeze Brings Buck, Classic Deer Camp

Release Date: 11-25-19

Start Time: 21:56

We first join Collins Marine in Iowa as he tags a super-wide buck using a snort-wheeze. Then, we catch up with Josh Honeycutt who, after a very tough Kentucky season, finally gets the chance to wrap his tag on a great Missouri buck. Not only is it a great buck but he also gets to do this while sharing hunt camp with good friends. Finally, we catch up with the rest of the team to see how their action has been during the notorious lock-down lull.

3. River Bottom Bucks, Hunting in the Snow

Release Date: 11-11-19

Multiple members of the team had successful hunts. Jared Mills lets it fly on a snowy November morning. After two years, he uses his first landowner tag. Then, Warren Dykstra experiences great rut action when his top target walks by with a doe. After that, Drake Lamb sneaks out for a hang and hunt on a new property that ends with punching his Iowa bow tag. Finally, we get updates from the rest of the team as they push through November hoping to catch up to their target bucks.

Bill Winke takes advantage of the rut's final days by hunting over his best food source. Then, Owen Reigler shows us another way to have success this time of year by rattling in a mature buck he's previously encountered this season. Following this success, Reigler experiences a different kind of adventure when he spots two locked-up bucks. Finally, we get updates from the rest of the team as they wrap up their 2019 rut hunts.
