Hunting Texas Whitetails – Deer & Deer Hunting TV, Full Episode

Hunting Texas Whitetails – Deer & Deer Hunting TV, Full Episode Everything is bigger in Texas, right? In this full episode of Deer & Deer Hunting TV, Dan Schmidt returns to the Lone Star State for a hunt. He’s hunted Texas with a bow and a rifle, but this will be a first for his Thompson/Center.

FREE RANGE FUN. by Daniel E. Schmidt. When you hunt anywhere in the South early in the season, you have to expect some distractions. And when it’s Texas, well, there can be complications. This trip was filled with them. My hunt had started two days earlier when D&DH video editor Abigail Hehner and I settled in for our first hunt at the Patterson cattle ranch near Aspermont. While moving our blind chairs into position, we encountered one very active and not-so-happy scorpion. We managed to avoid it and sit long enough until we had a group of mature does in the food plot. And, seeing this was a management hunt, I gladly pulled the trigger on a big nanny so we could exit that blind and its prickly occupant.
That was just the beginning of our adventures. Over the course of the next few days we had close calls with fire ants, diamondback rattlesnakes and one menacing black widow spider. Heaton nonchalantly dispatched all of them. That’s all in a day’s work for this hard-nosed Texan.
I know what you might be thinking. But, hey, we’re Midwesterners. We just don’t get this stuff at home. It kind of creeps us out.
One of the few things that didn’t creep us out was the incredible beauty of this wild oasis. The Patterson is a hidden gem of an 18,000-acre cattle ranch just north of Abilene.
