Watch These Secrets Of Giant Midwest White-tailed Bucks

Mark Luster Iowa Carbon Express

Midwest bucks, such as this Iowa brute killed by Mark Luster, can grow to tremendous sizes due to a variety of reasons.

Big bucks are in the back of every hunter’s mind this time of year. On this week’s new episode of Destination Whitetail – airing Wednesday on the Sportsman Channel – our team travels to the Midwest to investigate what makes the region hot for big bucks.

Tagging a big buck is a tremendous accomplishment for any hunter, but just what is it that makes a big buck? Is it a matter of food consumption? Environment?

Throughout the Midwest, massive deer are taken every season. Destination Whitetail examines the region to determine if any specific factors exist that create larger-than-average white-tailed deer. Tune in to hear the experts’ opinion on whether these factors could be replicated to grow big bucks in other areas of the country.

Get educated about big bucks with this week’s Destination Whitetail, airing on the Sportsman Channel on Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m. EST and 11:30 p.m. EST, plus an additional showing on Fridays at 9:30 a.m. EST.

Destination Whitetail, produced by F+W Outdoors, premiered in 2012 on the Sportsman Channel. The series investigates the people, places and ways to hunt whitetail throughout North America. In the 43 states that have deer populations, their habitat varies as greatly as the traditions and methods used to hunt them.

Destination Whitetail goes behind the scenes with some of the outdoor industry’s most prolific personalities and learns how whitetails have contributed to their success. After its first season, Destination Whitetail was named a finalist for the 2012 Sportsman Choice Awards for “Best New Series.”
