Today on the Wired To Hunt Podcast we’re joined by Bill Winke, accomplished whitetail writer and creator of and Midwest Whitetail TV. Our topic of discussion? The art of hunting one, specific buck. There are few goals in the hunting world more thrilling, but equally frustrating as chasing a single, specific buck but Bill Winke has proven he can do it on the biggest and oldest bucks in the woods. So if you’ve ever set your sights on “the one” but have struggled to get it done, this is the episode for you.
