Danny’s had his cams out for 2 weeks and says: “Got a couple decent bucks.

One lesson to take away from this episode: It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been hunting, a shooting opportunity can go south in a hurry. Stay as calm as you can, keep your wits and react, or big deer will get away from you in seconds. You’ll see what I mean. I love Wyoming, spectacular scenery and lots of game (you’ll see) and awesome people. If you want to hunt out there next fall, I highly recommend the fellow I hunted with on this show. [...]
