Tennessee turkey season. I come in here to do
self-filming so, I don’t know how it’s going to turn
out but I’ve got some birds gobbling up on the hill
just to the right of us. It’s real windy. It’s gotten cold on us so, a
little bit of overcast I just, I don’t know how it’s
going to pan out but we’re going to hang in here
and see. (Outdoor Sounds) (Outdoor Sounds) (Outdoor Sounds) (Outdoor Sounds) (Outdoor Sounds) (BOW SHOT) (Outdoor Sounds) (Outdoor Sounds) (Dustin) I shot that bird an
hour and basically 20 minutes ago, and it’s the
first time I’ve ever pulled this off and as you can
see the other gobblers with him jumped on the bird
that I shot and he’s honestly been there for over
an hour. I didn’t want to scare him off. So, that’s why I’m having to
do this the way I did. Thanks to the good Lord that
he’s given me a day that I can come out and do this. I mean I’m just so blessed
that I mean if you’ve never experienced turkey
hunting believe me if you get out and try it you’ll fall
in love with it and I mean gah. See those birds come in like
that, those jakes and then those two long beards, I
mean it don’t get any better. I’m going to go get my bird. (Outdoor Sounds) (Dustin) Big bird. I love it. (Outdoor Sounds) (Dustin) Let me tell you
that’s one pretty bird, big old fan, I mean I just
can’t thank everybody enough for you know backing us
on this. I mean it is, we work with the
best companies around. If you’ve never tried Wood
Haven Calls let me tell you that’s premier calls in
the business. Got it! (Outdoor Sounds) (MUSIC) (ANNOUNCER) THIS PORTION OF

listening to a good rabbit race cause rabbit
season just came out on Friday and hoping maybe they
might be after a deer, so we go ready and then out of
nowhere from behind there comes a Border Collie
and three big old great Pyrenees and they are
flying up this line that we’re trying to hunt to try
and join the race. But they could bust a big old
buck right towards us, probably unlikely but just
in case it happens. (Outdoor Sounds) (Kandra) I guess sometimes no
matter how hard you try there just some things that
are out of your control. (Outdoor Sounds) (Outdoor Sounds) (BOW SHOT) (Outdoor Sounds) (Clayton) Good job baby. (Kandra) Go down, go down, go
down. (Clayton) Go down. Good job.
Good job. (Kandra) Oh my God. (laughter) (Clayton) Hey he was right
behind the limbs on you but you shot right through it. (Kandra) That was not a shot I
wanted to take at all but if he went one step farther I
didn’t have him. Oh, my God. (Clayton) Good job. (Kandra) I am, oh, thank you
Jesus. (Clayton) Thank you sweet
Lord. (Kandra) And thank you
Matthews. Oh, good grief. (Clayton) And that’s why you
shoot a what? (Giggles) (Kandra) I can’t stand up. Oh, I saw the shot and went oh
no because I mean, that’s all I had. That’s all I had. I was going to wait for him to
come, I needed two steps and he was going to be out
past those limbs. (Clayton) He was definitely
behind some stuff. I couldn’t get him with your
shot. (Kandra) Oh my gosh, thank
goodness, I have a good hunter safety system too cause
if I’d had to I would have swung around this tree. (laughter) When you get
desperate. (Clayton) He’s a good one. (Kandra) Oh my gosh. I don’t, I’m just so excited. I really thought I was going
to go home eating tag soup. (Outdoor Sounds) (Kandra) Oh my gosh. I still can’t get over it. It happened too fast I didn’t
have time to get nervous or excited but I’m awfully
excited. Now he didn’t run maybe 30
yards to the step, so there’s no tracking, there’s
no nothing like that, let’s just head on up there
and get my deer. I cannot believe this actually
happened. This took a lot of time and
patience and a lot of prayers because I finally just
said Lord, please send me one. I said I can’t do it by myself. Oh, my gosh. It all happened so fast. It just blows my mind. This is the biggest buck I’ve
ever taken. That’s not hard to do because
I’ve only taken three and this is the third one but I’m
so excited. I honestly, I thought we
weren’t going to get it done but it just shows you
don’t give up until it’s finally time to go home. Oh, he is beautiful. (Clayton) Good job sis. (Kandra) Thanks. (Clayton) I love you honey. (Kandra) I love you too dad. (Clayton) Don’t run till what? (Kandra) Till he’s tagged up
and we’re all legal and now he’s mine. (Outdoor Sounds) (Kandra) I’m telling you what
he is a brute. We are very thankful to have
this Kymco because there is no way me and dad could both
drag him out of here, probably the heaviest deer
I’ve ever seen but now that we’ve got him right here
I say we get him on back to camp. Let’s go. (Outdoor Sounds) (MUSIC) (ANNOUNCER) THIS PORTION OF

hunt here in Kentucky, I have Mr. Lionel Green manning the
camera for me. We had all kinds of good and
bad experiences and I had no more than told Lionel I’d
really like to see boomerang, probably 15 minutes
later we hear something behind us, well Lionel hears
something behind us and he taps me on the shoulder. He says Richie grab your bow
here comes boomerang. Well needless to say he makes
a beeline and within five minutes of Lionel saying
that he was under us. So, I had no time to get ready. Well once he got underneath of
us as we going to pass us I was going to try and draw my
bow and get one in him. Well just as I started to draw
he looked right up at me and he just froze and I froze. Well he went on about I
thought it was about 30 yards, so I put my second pin
on him. It was actually only about 22,
23 yards and we was already on edge as soon as that bow
went off he jumped the stream and I hit him way high
in the backbone. I was devastated. We give him four or five hours
but I knew it was hopeless. We did go back in there and
look for him but we did find a lot of blood. It was just, it was a flesh
wound practically. I mean it, he was bleeding
like you get cut on your hand, you’re going to bleed
and that’s what he was doing. So, we had to give up on him. I didn’t want to but I knew it
was a hopeless case cause I knew he wasn’t going to die
and we actually two or three days later, we got trail
camera pictures of him. So, that made me feel a lot
better. I knew he was still alive. Well then about, I think it
was about exactly seven days later I got word one of
Lionel neighbors went in there and killed a big buck
with a drop tie and got him with a crossbow during gun
season. Well as soon as I seen the
picture of him my heart sunk. It was boomerang. That very next day we had a
deer we call pumpkin head. The reason we call him pumpkin
head is cause he’s real tall white rack and his
antlers they almost touch. They’re real tall and almost
touch and Lionel said you could set a pumpkin in his
horns and it stay there. We heard something off to our
left and the first thing we seen was that white rack. And Lionel said I think that’s
pumpkin head Rich. Well, he read the script. He come right around the
hillside to us and stopped broadside. I couldn’t get a good read on
him with my range finder and I told Lionel I am not
wounding another deer. If I can’t find the exact
yardage of that deer before I shoot I’m not going to let
another arrow fly at him. We sat there the rest of the
day. We’d done made up our mind we
was going to stay there till dark, daylight to dark
set cause it was just, it was the first week of November. They were rutting heavy. They was just deer everywhere
and we wasn’t about to go in. It got to be about 11 o’clock
and I was doing a little intro telling you know,
telling about the deer we had been seeing and I seen
Lionel’s eyes get real big and he went doe. (Richie) He was a 160 probably
white horn. I’m about to shoot him for 35
yards but I couldn’t get a good read on him with my
range finders and I didn’t want to shoot him. Do you see one? (Outdoor Sounds) (Richie) We’ll continue this
later. We’ve got one in the food. (Richie) It got to be about
12:30 and we seen another eight pointer coming
on the same trail that boomerang had come in on
the same morning, the same morning. He came right in fed right
under us, got his fill and was going back the way he come. Well he kind of veered a
little bit left off the trail and we seen movement of
another buck coming around the hillside and low and
behold it was pumpkin head coming back. I thought he had read the
script. I thought he was going to come
right to us. I already had my bow. I thought it was a done deal. Well he got out about 75 to 80
yards and he seen this eight pointer and I’ll be
dag-gone if he didn’t go to that eight pointer and
instead of coming on in to us after he left and the eight
pointer went on his way, pumpkin head fed out of
sight and I never did see him again. We headed in the very next
morning. We saw a couple of small
bucks, a couple of two-year old’s and a handful
of does. (Richie) We still haven’t seen
anything of boomerang. This is days we wait for all
year though. Bucks are definitely on their
feet and cruising. Some of them are chasing, the
rest of them are looking but you never know what’s
going to come through this time of year. (Outdoor Sounds) (Richie) It got up to be about
11 o’clock and I happened to look over my shoulder and
there stood the buck I ended up taking right in our
by our food pile. He finally realized there was
a buck down there, a shooter buck. He has the camera pointed the
total opposite direction. He has to swing it way around
the tree. It takes me it seems like 10
minutes because that buck would look up at us every
15, 20 seconds. He would look, we’d have to
freeze. We’d reach a little farther,
we’d have to freeze. Well, I finally got the bow
and he finally got the camera on him and I let it eat. (Outdoor Sounds) (BOW SHOT) (Outdoor Sounds) (Lionel) I knew you couldn’t
stand it. I knew you couldn’t stand it. (Richie) And it was a money
shot. (Lionel) I wanted to reach up
there and get it so bad. (Richie) Boys, I think I’m
done in Kentucky. He wasn’t boomerang and he
wasn’t the big tall white rack 10 pointer we seen the
other morning but this is my last day of vacation. I’ve got to go have hip
surgery on December the 9th, so my days are numbered
in the stand. (Richie) We done our
celebrating and I got down and got my arrow, found blood
right off but we still, it wasn’t a complete pass
through. So, we got our stuff together,
walked on out of there. We give him till it was about
three or four o’clock that evening, that afternoon
we went back in there. So, we give him about five
hours and we had marked, we did track him about 75
yards and we left the arrow right there at the blood
trail. So, we got back on it and he
didn’t go another 50 yards and he just couldn’t handle
that Rage. It was a perfect shot. I mean
it took him out. (Richie) This right here is
from a lot of hard work. Me and Lionel we’ve been on
vacation for over two weeks now together and we have
been in the tree stand every day but like one. I want to thank Lionel Green
for coming along, running the camera for me. I want to thank God for making
all this possible. I want to thank you guys for
watching. (MUSIC) (ANNOUNCER) THIS PORTION OF
3B OUTDOORS IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY THESE FINE COMPANIES, (MUSIC) (COMMERCIALS) (Freddie) Wow, I told you it
was going to be a great show. How about Dustin shucking and
jiving on that Wood Haven custom call to get that
big old gobbler into bow range plus film it himself, it
takes a lot of patience to do that. Then how about Kandra up in
Ohio with her dad Clayton behind the camera, it
doesn’t get much better than that. Last Richie Mason punching his
tag in Kentucky on a big old white tail. We’d like to thank all the
boys up in Kentucky and Ohio for all they do for 3B
Outdoors. Well we’re out time again this
week folks, join us again next where we’ll have you
somewhere in the woods or on the water. I’m Freddie Neeley and thanks
so much for watching 3B Outdoors TV. (MUSIC) (MUSIC) (MUSIC)
