Big Deer with Broken Beam


I filmed this hunt with Willi Schmidt for Mike Hanback’s Big Deer TV show on the Sportsmens Channel. Willi is host of Pure Hunting (Sportsmen Channel) and also hunts for Mike’s Big Deer Hunt team, he is an excellent hunter and a pro with a compound bow.  I follow Mike’s blog and came across this photo from 2012, Willi shot the deer in 2011.  


Interestingly enough, I not only filmed the hunt but I also took this picture!  So cool to see some of my work found on legendary Mike Hanbacks blog!  Thanks Mike and Willi!  If this buck passed under my tree stand, you better believe I would draw my longbow and fling a double bladed Zwickey broad head down range.  Would you shoot this buck?


Another angle and a different hero shot of Willi, there is so many good photos of this old warrior its hard to choose which ones to post!  Nice job Willi, you really deserved this one.
