From the great Plains to the Deep South, there's no time quite as exciting for Whitetail Deer hunters as the rut. With bucks on the move, fighting and cruising for does at all hours of the day and night, you just never know what may happen, or when it may take place. This week, we've got a pair of great hunts featuring bucks at their wide-open best. We'll stake out a scrape line in Kansas, then travel down the Mississippi River and rattle up a swamp-running Whitetail Deer you won't believe.
Rattling and Running | Whitetail Hunts in Kansas and Mississippi
Every day spent under God's great blue skies is a blessing, but sometimes in the field, we run into a story greater than any other. Through the Catch-A-Dream foundation, youngsters in dire health get to experience nature in ways they otherwise could not, and more fully than we who also love the woods could ever appreciate. Their souls find the restoring solace of sunrise over mountain peaks, and of all the natural wonders that lie below. This week we'll follow one such hunter on his quest for a Texas turkey, and we'll visit with some of the folks who help make those moments happen.
