This episode features Pat Epling and Walt Gabbard as they hunt whitetails at Vatoville in Texas. Hunting Texas whitetails is always exciting, but this hunt provides a unique perspective through the art of rattling antlers to bring in bucks. Rattling in deer is a challenge, but an experience that is like none other in deer-rich Texas. Vatoville, a hunter-funded outfit, was established in 1996 by Steve "Vato" Anderson.

The Obsessed | Nebraska Whitetails and Mule Deer
Kevin Tate and Dustin “Shed” Whitacre hunt both whitetails and mule deer in the cold sandhills of Nebraska. Hunting both species of deer is very different adding an interesting twist to the hunt. “The best way to describe an obsession with the outdoors is to look at the toughest parts of it…. You don’t know how you’re going to make the next step, but you do,” said Tate. “What happens is you’re faced with something you can’t look away from. Those are the times you remember. Those are the times that make you obsessed.” “It’s like a chess match. When you win that game, it’s the ultimate. It drives you,” said Whitacre.
