Watch as this hunter pursues a massive Manitoba whitetail with his traditional bow.
After having a close call when the buck came in to some well-timed calling, this hunter gets his opportunity a week later.
While sitting in a natural ground blind a half a mile from the site of his first encounter with the buck, the hunter is presented with a perfect broadside shot and comes away with a big Manitoba whitetail to show for his efforts.
For all you impatient souls, the shot takes place at the 6:30 mark in the video, but the hunt leading up to the kill is part of what makes it so special.
What a great hunt and what a fine Manitoba whitetail.
This hunter exhibits the values that many traditional bowhunters share. The kill is the culmination of the hunt, not the entire goal.
If antler scores and numbers of animals bagged are your only measures of a successful hunt, perhaps you should stick with cables and sights. But if you are looking to experience the outdoors at a more intimate level, consider giving traditional bowhunting a try.
This hunter's big old Manitoba whitetail is proof that you can go traditional and still be successful... if you're willing to put in the effort.
