Two years ago I hunted Iowa whitetails for the first time, and in preparation for that hunt I visited the Land of Giants several times during the spring and summer to get various projects done. On one of those trips I had one of the most incredible whitetail encounters of my life, getting face to face with an absolute monster whitetail only 40 yards away. I was lucky enough to capture some incredible footage of this encounter, and still today I get chills watching it again.

With the “velvet rut” upon us now and many of us searching the evening ag fields for bucks, I thought I’d share this video again to help scratch that itch for ya. It’s sure to get you pumped for your next velvet drive and for the hunting season to come too! Enjoy.
