If you’re familiar with the videos and TV shows produced by Drury Outdoors over recent years, you’ll probably recognize Mark Drury’s daughter Taylor. For well over a decade now she’s been taking to the woods and fields with her dad and chasing big whitetails on camera. Over that period of time the number of females getting into hunting has risen dramatically, and I think it’s safe to say that Taylor has been one of the most positive and visible young female role models out there for other young girls. From everything I’ve seen and heard, Taylor has handled this responsibility admirably, so my hats off to her for that.

That all said, today we’re bringing up Taylor because of her success with a bow and arrow this past weekend as she tagged an absolute giant Iowa eight pointer. This deer, one known as the 8th Wonder, is a 7.5 year brute of a deer, and scored just over a 151″, as an eight!

Congratulations Taylor on an awesome buck!

On a side note, if you saw the Drury DVDs last year, you’ll likely recognize this deer as Terry Drury was after him for quite awhile, to no avail. Terry was recently on The Wired To Hunt Podcast and he shared an absolute mind-blowing amount of whitetail wisdom.
