Deer Hunters Wanted.  

Jun 23, 2019

When you need to hunt to survive, you learn how to hunt efficiently and effectively.  Phil Vanderpool's hunting journey began in a similar fashion. Today Phil is among the most recognized and respected personalities in the outdoor industry.  Phil broke into the outdoor commercial world when he started filming his hunts using a VHS camcorder and he's never looked back. We discuss Phil's upbringing, his tactics and strategies for hunting big bucks, and discuss in detail his near 4 year hunt for a monster buck he named Obsession.
