I was looking at a hunting videos on YouTube and ran across this one I thought you might like.
It is an unbelievable 265″ buck spotlighted on Midwestwhitetail.com. The buck was taken during shotgun season in Iowa. This buck is just amazing, makes me want to hunt in Iowa. I have seen so many nice bucks come from Iowa, it is definitely one of the places I dream of chasing whitetails one day.I just love looking at hunting videos on YouTube, you run across some really nice bucks on there. This buck is one of them, I had never seen this buck before but it is really an awesome buck. I wish the hunter had given some details about the hunt.I don’t know any details except it was taken during the Iowa shotgun season, but never the less it is an amazing buck, congratulations to the lucky hunter.
Filming hunting videos is tough and exciting.
I would love to see a buck like this one day when hunting, although I did see a potential Kansas state record typical when I was filming DHBB Pro-Staff member Troy Redner, I have never seen a buck of this caliber when I was doing the deer hunting. It would be a dream come true to be able to film my self shooting a buck like this. You have to have a lot of different things go right to see a buck like this, you have to hunt where there are whitetails of this caliber and you have to be a little lucky to and be smart and hunt with the wind in your favor and many other factors also. I was hunting a place where a 220 class buck was seen a few years ago but I never saw him. My wife and father-in-law were driving down the road right near where I had permission to hunt and this huge Kansas buck was laying in a field like he was worn out from chasing does. You just never know what you might see in Kansas.

Now is the time to put out those mineral lick sites.
Well I got out this past weekend and put out some mineral lick sites and put fresh batteries in my trail cameras and checked my sd cards in my trail cameras. I had a lot of good pictures of several bucks starting to grow their antlers.
Mineral lick Sites
Now is a great time to put out those mineral lick sites for the whitetails. A friend of mine sent me a good inexpensive recipe for mineral lick sites I wanted to share with you. I put some out a while back and the deer are really loving it. The recipe makes about 200 pounds for around $50. You can pick up the ingredients at most local feed stores. Here’s the recipe:
1 50lb bag of Di-calcium phosphate
1 50lb bag of stock salt
2 50lb bags of trace mineral
Mix 12lbs of trace mineral, 6 lbs of stock salt and 6 lbs of di-calcium phosphate. Mix together and dig into ground and reapply about every 2 to 3 months with half the recipe (12lbs). Store the bags separate, don’t mix all at once. This is a great way to put out your own mineral lick sites at an affordable price. I like to top mine off with a TrophyRock and some corn and the whitetails love it.This time of year is a great time to start providing the whitetails with minerals. I got several pictures of bucks at my sites already growing their antlers and the minerals should help them grow nice big antlers.
I got a picture of a three legged deer on one of my trail cameras I wanted to show you. It looks like a doe and it looks like it is healed up well. I don’t know how well a deer like this can get around but I have seen dogs that get around pretty well with three legs. Would you take this deer out of the herd? You hate to see a deer like this, there is no telling what happened to it. I am surprised the coyotes haven’t gotten it. It seems like they would be able to take this deer down pretty easy, but you never know. I guess it is still able to get around okay and defend itself if it is able to get up and eat and move around. I will be looking for more pictures of this one in the future.
This 3 legged deer recently showed up on one of my trail cameras.
The GoPro is great little video camera. I highly recommend you check out these awesome little cameras and get you one for filming your hunts.
GoPro HD Hero2 video camera is awesome.
I have put out some mineral lick sites in the last few weeks and deer are really hitting them pretty good. Now is a great time to put out those minerals, the does will be having their fawns before too long and the bucks will be growing their antlers before you know it so it’s good to give them those minerals now. Also it’s time to plant those warm season food plots for deer, turkey, and rabbit. I just love the spring time turkey season is well under way and the fishing is cranking up, but my preparations for next deer season are already under way and I have got some work to do to get ready for next season. I am getting my equipment ready early this year I have got a few things I need to get for next year like some stands and trail cameras and new arrows and broadheads etc.
It has been a busy last few weeks for me, I have been doing some intense four hour physical therapy on my shoulders to get me ready to return to work after being out quite some time for two major shoulder surgeries. I can now pull my Mathews Z7 back without the intense pain like before the surgeries.It sure is a lot better now than it was this time last year, there were times where I didn’t know if I would ever be able to bow hunt again. And for someone who loves bow hunting as much as I do that is a scary thing to think you might not be able to do something you love so much. A big thanks to the doctors and physical therapist you guys are awesome.
I also want to ad a little video I filmed at the first annual Monster Buck Classic We Are Kansas deer hunting show in Topeka Kansas. It was a great show and we are already looking forward to next years show. Talk about some big bucks, Kansas is no joke when it comes to monster whitetails.
