Top 10 Whitetail Deer Hunting Videos


I filmed this buck in one of my favorite whitetail deer hunting videos.

I was looking at whitetail deer hunting videos on YouTube and thought it would be fun to share my top 10.  There are so many to choose from but these are a few of my favorites.

Whitetail Deer Hunting Videos

  1. First on my whitetail deer hunting videos list would have to be one that I just happened to film. Some of you may have heard about a buck we were after we named “Horn Donkey”, he was a very special buck that I honestly believe would have been very close to being a possible Kansas state record typical with a bow. Although it didn’t quite turn out like we had hoped, it’s still some awesome footage of a very special buck. You can click the following link to read the full story on Horn Donkey.
  2. This is one of my all time favorite deer hunting videos, just crazy to watch this whole hunt unfold. Dylan shoots this very nice buck and then another nice buck comes in and starts attacking it. This has been one of my favorites for years. One Huge Kansas Buck with another one coming to visit.
  3. This is some awesome footage of just an amazing Kansas Giant buck, this is one we all dream about seeing one day. My wife and father-in-law saw a buck of this caliber a few years ago while driving to town here in Kansas. I can’t imagine seeing a buck like this in the wild.
  4. Bowhunting.com is one of my favorite websites and this video is of a great big Illinois buck that took a lot of hard work and determination to get him. The hunter surely earned this big monster.
  5. ‘The Joe Franz’ Buck: Joe Franz killed what some believe is the biggest buck to ever be taken on video. Enough said.

  6. 192″ Boone and Crockett buck with a bow“, the title says it all. The hunters reaction after shooting this huge whitetail is priceless. When it all comes together and all the hard work pays off it can get a little emotional.

  7. 210″ inch Giant whitetail buck with 11″ drop tine” awesome footage of a brute of a whitetail.

  8. Whitetail Boone and Crockett Buck ?” Check out this buck filmed near Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. What a huge world class whitetail deer. I can’t believe there have only been 79 views of this video.
  9. Giant 184″ 21 point whitetail by: Aaron Law” This one starts off kind of crazy these guys are throwing peanuts out of the tree onto deer, then this huge Kentucky buck comes in making scrapes and the hunter makes a great bow shot.
  10. 2013 Kansas Monster Buck With Bow BBD” This is a great Kansas whitetail deer hunting video, these guys do a great job loved the second angle of the shot.

Filming hunting adventures can be a lot of hard work and can be tough. Most of my hunts are filmed and I know just how hard it can be to even see a buck like one of these much less get it on film with good light. It just makes me appreciate the footage in these videos even more. I hope you enjoyed a few of my favorite whitetail deer hunting videos.

Off Season Deer Hunting Tips

  1. Learn about Whitetail Behavior and habitat: The more you know about whitetails and their habitat the better prepared you will be when hunting season comes around. Learn to pattern the deer and it will help you to be able to pick good stand locations that increase your odds of harvesting that big boy.

  2. Practice Quality Deer Management Where You Hunt: Quality deer management can improve your deer herd and increase your odds at getting that buck of a lifetime. Planting food plots and or starting a supplemental feeding program can help the health of your deer herd and attract and hold deer on your property.
