REDNECK QUAKER: Valley hunters to be featured on Outdoor Channel show

TERRE HAUTE — Little did a buck in his prime at 41⁄2 years old realize he would become famous on not only trail cameras, but a television show as well.

  The 7-Up Buck lived in central Indiana among majestic hardwoods and rolling corn fields. He was named from the irregular rack he sported on top of his head. The buck surely felt eyes watching him last year — because he evaded every attempt a human tried to get close to him.

7-Up had many rubs and a lot of girlfriends. He made a fatal mistake by leading nine does across an open field for about 200 yards. He didn’t pick up any foreign scents of humans that evening. The hunters took an alternate way into the stand because a couple of days before he was spooked in his usual lair.

At 4 p.m. on Nov. 7, 2012 a pretty young lady, Krysten McDaniels, and her husband, Josh, were sitting in a tree watching old 7-Up coming across the field. Krysten was equipped with a Mathews Compound Bow with Rage Broadheads. Yes, you guessed it, Josh was armed with a movie camera.

The buck came directly to them like a coon going to a crawdad hole! When he stopped at thirty yards, Krysten made her draw and waited forever for the buck to present a prefect shot, which he did at 20 yards standing broadside.

As she released the arrow he took a step forward, but it still took out vitals because he went 50 yards, dropped to the ground and stayed there. She thought the shot hit too far back and instantly started crying in her beer and punching the tree like a punching bag. It’s a good thing Josh wasn’t at arms length.

You will be able to see all the action for yourself in the fall of 2014 if you tune into the Outdoor Channel and watch the show “Dressed to Kill.”

This young couple will be featured in many TV shows to come, not only the 7-Up Buck, but turkey hunting with bows, as well as going on safari in South Africa with Cobus Van Vuuren of www.java

vusafaris.com.

This couple is living a dream. Krysten works for Gander Mountain and Josh works for George Custer’s bow shop as a bow tech. Matthews Bow Company came to Krysten and asked if she would be on their pro staff, which is a great honor for anybody!

They are also mentors for under-privileged kids, taking them on campouts, archery shoots as well as actual hunting trips. A young couple like this is so inspiring they are also my mentors.

n Note: If anyone needs to take a hunters safety course, effective in 2013, Indiana DNR requires online signup for all hunter safety courses. To register for the class go to www.inhea.com. The next class is March 18-20 from 6 to 9 p.m.. There is a limit of 50 kids per class. Adults need to register if they take the class with the kids.
