Video: Here’s How Persistence Pays Off with a Last Day Buck

last day buck

This hunt came down to the wire.

It is easy to get frustrated and feel like packing it in on the last day of a hunt. But Eric Chesser of the Hushin crew shows why you should never give up.

It’s the last day of a solo backcountry mule deer hunt, and he finally catches up with a great buck. This is what hunting is all about.

How many of you had your heart skip a beat on that first shot going high? We know we certainly did. He lucked out when that buck didn’t move. It’s likely he didn’t even realize he was being shot at, but still, Chesser was able to make a couple great shots to bring this buck home.

This hunt just goes to show hunting isn’t always easy. He really had to work for it here, but persistence paid off big time.

We have to give Chesser kudos for donating the meat from this buck to charity, too. Congrats on a great buck, and thanks for sharing this exciting hunt with the rest of the world!
