New Berlin, WI – (September 15, 2011) – Sportsman Channel, the leader in outdoor TV for the American Sportsman is proud to showcase Grigsby Farm, one of the most notable whitetail properties in Illinois, this week on Savage Outdoors. Host Mike Stroff has canvassed many fertile territories over the years, however, according to Stroff, Grigsby farm is a “cut-above” the rest for whitetail hunting in the Midwest. This unforgettable hunt is one Stroff will never forget as he tagged an 8-point buck of his lifetime. Watch the event unfold this Thursday, September 15 at 8:30 pm EST.
Grigsby farm is located in Petersburg, Illinois. The well-known farm has consistently turned out some of the largest mature whitetails in the Midwest. To help ensure their chances for results, Stroff arrived a few days early for tree stand scouting. The homework paid dividends as Stroff discovered some very impressive buck signs. The first morning of the hunt provided ideal conditions – temperature of 25 degrees with a perfect wind for the tree stand location.
“We rattled one time and the buck came right into us at 20 yards,” said Mike Stroff, host, Savage Outdoors. “I made the most of my opportunity and harvested the largest 8-point buck I have ever taken. Over the years, I have tagged some of my biggest bucks at Grigsby and my largest buck to date. It was a perfect morning with a heavy frost in the rut, and a little calling is what sealed the deal on this buck!”
