buckslayer's podcast

This is a podcast for the serious Whitetail Deer Hunter. I will be interviewing people that are consistently harvesting big whitetail bucks. If you are a whitetail deer hunter you know this is no easy task. That is why I want to hear how other people are getting the job done year after year, and make this show for all of you to hear. They say "there's 100 ways to skin a cat" and it is the same way with chasing trophy whitetails. I am going to dive deep into each of these guy’s strategies.
