New Berlin, Wis. –-(Ammoland.com)- Harvesting ‘big bucks’ once a year in Canada has become a way of life for Mike Hanback during the last ten years and that is not about to change. Sportsman Channel, the leader in outdoor TV for the American sportsman, takes audiences into Canada for unmatched whitetail hunting with Mike Hanback.

The latest journey north finds Hanback trying to snap his string of bad luck in Alberta and conversely maintain his success rate in Saskatchewan.

The results in one of these Canadian locations will likely make viewer do a double take. Big Deer TV is an original television series that premieres exclusively on Sportsman Channel. Do NOT miss the ups and downs on Wednesday, July 10 at 8:00 ET/PT.

The frigid temperatures and the 20 mile per hour winds are certainly tough to deal with, but the elements will not deter the positive spirits of Mike Hanback as he searches for the buck of his dreams. Alberta proves once again to be tricky for buck sightings, however; there is a silver lining when Hanback has a memorable encounter with a massive grey wolf in the distance with an eagle soaring above.  The Canadian journey moves east from Alberta to Saskatchewan where his energy is renewed by several sightings of does and small bucks in the thick woods. Hanback did not have to wait long before a dominant buck rolls into the area and the adrenaline begins to flow.

“I could not believe the size of this old buck,” said Mike Hanback, host of Big Deer with Mike Hanback. “I saw this huge buck in my cross hairs and made a clean harvest. I have had a lot of luck in this location in the past, but this massive buck was my proudest moment in Canada. When I factor in the freezing temperatures and wind chill, the end result could not be more satisfying.”
