E76: A Knack For Big Racks ( Feat. Jared Mills of Midwest Whitetail on Locating, Accessing, Hunting, and Killing Giant Bucks)

July 19, 2018


We all like the idea of killing mature bucks. However, if we are honest with ourselves, the idea of a giant set of antlers is enthralling. There is just something about the rarity and beauty of a world class animal that make our hearts race and skip a beat all at the same time. Jared Mills is a guy who justs has a knack for these beasts. He has had so many encounters, chased so many monster deer, and arrowed an astounding number of giants that it has to be way more than luck.

This interview is jam packed with info that we selfishly will be using to try to seal the deal this fall. Luckily for you, we recorded it so that you can do the same!
