Mike Mattly knows how to consistently kill big bucks—the keyword being “consistently.” There are dozens of bruiser whitetails on the walls of his Iowa home to prove it. He attributes much of his success to employing a low-impact scouting camera strategy that goes against the grain of popular techniques. Watch the video above to see how he does it.
For this hunt, we were running a Stealth Cam DS4K. This scouting cam offers easy operation with several modes, featuring both photos and video modes that deliver jaw-dropping high resolution images. Having a reliable scouting cam with long battery life and crispy images is critical if you’re targeting mature whitetails—this camera exceeds all those standards.
