If you want to start a good debate among deer hunters, start talking about your list of the best hunters in the country, and let the fun begin. The reality is there are a lot of outstanding hunters who consistently take mature bucks who you’ve never heard of. Nick Skinner of Iowa Land Company is one of those hunters. Nick’s humble personality doesn’t allow him to brag, so Nick and The Doctor do that for him in this episode.
While he has many great bucks on his resume, the focus of the conversation is the 191-inch buck he arrowed in 2019, which he and his wife refer to as the Honeymoon Buck. This is yet another story of redemption as the first encounter Nick had with the buck didn’t go as planned, but thanks to a little help from his wife, as well as luck and persistence, this story comes to an exciting conclusion. This episode continues our series of exciting deer stories, which we’re featuring as deer seasons are opening or are about to open around the country.
We also get some tips from our guest about what to do if you’re considering buying hunting land. It’s more attainable than you might think. This episode’s B Team report is highlighted by the sad tale of a guy that just can’t help but spend money on things he already owns! You’ll have to listen to get the sad details.
