Certified wildlife biologist Bob Zaiglin invites the Destination Whitetail cameras to Texas, where he employs helicopters and a team of junior college students to study, manage and breed local white-tailed deer. Tune in to the Sportsman Channel this Wednesday at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT to check out their unique breeding and management process.

To control the white-tailed deer that populate thousands and thousands of acres of land on a Texas ranch, Zaiglin and his team take to the air, using two helicopters and a rifle system that propels a net to spot and capture carefully chosen whitetail. The Destination Whitetail cameras are on site to document the entire process, one that is sure to excite viewers interested in land management and the future of breeding. After entangling the deer in the net, they are able to airlift deer to a new location, where his hand-picked team of 17 students wrangle the deer and record its statistics. Discover how this small team is working to enhance the breeding potential of Texas bucks.
