Deer Hunters Wanted.  

Dec 10, 2016

When you hail from the land where the Hold in the Horn Buck originated and the land of Ten Point Crossbows, you know you're in a good spot.  Dustin Kismore, the taxidermist behind Bill Wilson's 190" double droptine mount (Bill was on this show in Episode #95), knows this area very well. Dustin hunts the urban area around Portage County, Ohio and knows there's potential for a transient buck to cruise through his set up at anymore, a set he doesn't mind hunting frequently.  Dustin is looking forward to mounting his cousin's buck grossing 241 inches, but for now, he shares many tips and strategies on how to get your trophy buck out of the field in onto the taxidermist's form effectively and without error.  Dustin believes in ozone, hunting out of treestands, cooling deer with frozen ice jugs instead of ice, and hunting when the moon is underfoot.
