Expectations vs Reality w/ Cam Derr

Show Notes

Hey everyone, welcome to episode 157 of the Antler Up Podcast!

On this week's episode Dimitri and I were joined by Cam Derr from Exodus Outdoor Gear.  Cam also is host of The Deer Gear Podcast and can be found on a ton of Exodus’s YouTube videos.  For this episode Cam talks about his expectations vs reality for this past hunting season with some amazing storytelling.  We had Cam on the show back in the spring when he had high hopes of pulling an Iowa tag and filling his ND tag for the second year in a row.  Well, as it turns out Cam pulled that Iowa tag, filled it and filled his ND tag on his biggest deer to date in velvet.  

Hear how even success brings challenges and how persevering leads to his success.  From struggling with shooting his bow, Cam was able to gain the confidence back and get the job done.  For the ND hunt, Cam shares what he needs to see from the field in order to go after a deer and how that totally changes when he goes to Iowa.  For just shy of two weeks, Cam’s Iowa story had me in total awe.  It is something that I believe every whitetail hunter dreams about one day when they have the chance to hunt Iowa and from this story it did not disappoint.  Cam wanted a specific experience, and Cam got it.  

Exodus Outdoor Gear just released a brand new Rival cellular camera and they will be at the GAOS in Harrisburg in two weeks.  Get there early to snag one if you are interested and Cam also shares what he will be doing himself with some arrows at the show!  

Thanks again for all the support and best of luck out there and Antler Up!
