Read on and find out about the craziest whitetail of the 2022 season! From Georgia Outdoor News: On November 9, 2022 Justin Buchanan put the crosshairs on the shoulder of the biggest deer he had ever seen in his life and fired. The .270 slug found its mark, hitting the animal right behind its shoulder for a double lung shot “When we got to the deer, I looked at the glands on the back of its legs and they were just white,” Justin said. “The glands had no color or smell. It had three little dried-up pieces of velvet stuck to the antlers, but the rest of the rack was hardened.” As he skinned the deer, Justin could not find [...]

Right now we're in the middle of a 3-week road trip filming for Season 12 of Big Deer TV on Sportsman Channel. I wanted to share a few photos with this update: I kicked things off in northwestern Oklahoma by shooting this beautiful 10-pointer (4.5 years old) with thick antler bases. He was pushing does all over the place and I finally stopped him with a loud eck and killed him with one 150-grain Hornady SST bullet. Rifle is the great new CZ model 600, mine in old-school .30-06, topped with the great Trijicon Huron 3X-9X by 40mm scope.             Next up was my friend John Trull of Trijicon, who for several days hunted a [...]

Deer Rifles: Sight-In, Wind Drift, Downhill Shots

 Should I sight-in my deer rifle with 3 shots groups or 5 shots like they did in the old days? Sight in with 2 or 3 shot groups. If you shoot 5, the barrel will heat up and the bullets’ point of impact might keep changing. You’ll fiddle with your scope settings too much and mess things up. BTW, zero your rifle and scope so that bullets group about 1½ inches high above a target’s bulls-eye. Now you have a rig with a 200-yard zero, so hold spot on a buck. I’d like to shoot my rifle more, but I’m squeezed for time and there’s no range near my house. What can I do? Set several archery deer targets or [...]
