Behind the Scenes

California Blacktail 2010

California Blacktail 2010

Shot this great 4x4, my first and only blacktail so far, with cameraman Jeff Parker in northern Cali for an episode of Buck Stops Here on Versus (now NBC Sports). Look at that country behind us, I never imagined such awesome hunting terrain in California, but I loved it.

Saskatchewan Beach, 2006

Saskatchewan Beach, 2006

John Dodson and I shot this buck at midmorning of Day 6 on a 6 day hunt! We rushed and filmed and wrapped the TV show in the last 4 hours of daylight we had. TV hunting is stressful most of the time.

We got this old 8-pointer at Jacalon, a private 10,000-acre low fence ranch in South Texas, down by Mirando City. One of the best ranches I've ever hunted and it's for sale (if you've got 10-12 million laying around you can own it).

Red Bull Afternoons

Red Bull Afternoons

I used to film most of my Versus hunts with John Dodson. Before the afternoon hunt we'd chug a Red Bull and be ready for the action. Long days filming a TV show and you need to charge up once in a while.

First Buck Ever for BIG DEER TV

First Buck Ever for BIG DEER TV

Shot this old, clean 10-point at 7 yards one cold November day, 2011. Marked the beginning of my new gig at Sportsman Channel. Pro cameraman Danny Dodge filmed this hunt and most of my subsequent hunts with his DSLR cameras, the guy works magic and makes me look good!

Big Canadian Buck That Got Away!

Big Canadian Buck That Got Away!

One of my most frustrating and heartbreaking moments filming Buck Stops Here. I had a muzzleloader malfunction and this giant escaped, we reviewed the footage on this monitor and figured he'd go 180 at least.

My friend John Fink (second from right), rifle product manager for Remington, shot this Texas buck for an episoode of Buck Stops Here.

Filming BIG DEER Lifestyle

My favorite thing is to hang our and interview deer hunting fanatics from all walks of life. Here cameramen Randy and Johnny Mac pose with Kevin, a mixed martial arts pro and die-hard longbow hunter and shed hunter.

Hanback and Dodson in KS

Hanback and Dodson in KS

Filmed a lot of great hunts with John Dodson, a talented and hard-working cameraman from Montana. John is a big reason my 3-year run on The Buck Stops Here on the old Versus network was so succesful.

Reviewing TV Footage

Reviewing TV Footage

Just a few years ago we used to rewind the tapes in the cameras, and review the footage we shot each day. I remember we woud worry like hell that we would mess up a tape and lose some cool footage. Now it is simpler! All our footage is digital and stored on memory cards, a breeze to review instantly.

2011 Virginia Giant Buck w/Zane Keen

2011 Virginia Giant Buck w/Zane Keen

This hunt with Capt. Zane Keen, an Army nurse back from Iraq, was one of my favorite shows of BIG DEER TV season 1 on Sportsman. Due monstly to Zane's genuine and inspiring story and narrative, the episode was a Top 5 finalist for best moment of the year. We didn't win, but we should have.

South Texas January 2010

South Texas January 2010

Another great Jacalon Ranch management buck, big 9-point. I remember that Jason Miller filmed me missing the same buck 2 days before we got him.

Good times with good people: John Gould, me, Robby Grainger and talented producer/camera Jason Miller.

Western Oklahoma Nov. 2008

Western Oklahoma Nov. 2008

I used to hunt in Oklahoma a lot and loved it. John Dodson filmed me shooting this beautiful 10-point. I remember the buck was dogging a doe and I had a little hole to shoot through, but I got him. You might have seen the hunt on Versus.
