I was invited to hunt with Bill Jordan and the Realtree gang on their famous Milk River property in Northeastern Montana. Michael Waddell was the camera operator (before he became a hunting star) and we were in a well-disguised cottonwood tree stand. I told Michael that if a deer came along the trail below us, I’d grunt and stop it right there (as I pointed to a spot) and shoot.
An hour later, a nice 8-point buck came along the trail. I stopped it with a grunt, exactly as promised, and shot right over its shoulder. Here was the chance for 15 minutes of fame and I blew it.
This dubious exploit is on Monster Bucks VII, if you want a good laugh, and Bill Jordan and company have made their entire line of hunting videos available on tablet, phone, and other platforms. Realtree.tv Plus offers hours and hours of hunting instruction and excitement. Now you can download their videos to any device. Check it out.
