Instead we will be giving away donated hunting products throughout 13 weeks of the hunting season. Now all hunters who enter will have a chance to win a prize. Prizes will be listed at a later date. Winners of the hunter class will recieve the NasHunt Championship Plague and a chance for prizes.

NasHunt will always put the working hunter first and for the dedicated crazy whitetail hunter we are introducing the NasHunt DIY Pro-Hunter class. Hunters will be required to provide video of there hunt including experinces of family, friends and time in the field to NasHunt. The film will be edit into a 13 week Web-show series with the grand winner at the end. Hunters will be judged by their video, personality, rack score and popular vote. The winner will recieve the NasHunt Pro Championship Ring and our hope is for a sponsor to provide a great prize. THIS WILL BE AWESOME !
We encourage Outfitters to get more involved in the NasHunt National Outfitter event. No outfitters signed up in 2016. We will provide great exposure of your name and link to your web site. A chance for NasHunt hunters to view your outfitting and harvests.
We ask the hunting world to please consider to help fund this great event so we can promote the event to the 13 million hunters who can enter. Imagine if each hunter participated how many lives we could help. We have faith-hope and believe with everyones help we could see a true miracle.
NasHunt donates 100% of all Hunter proceeds and Lorie and I have volunteered all our time and funds to hold the event. We truly enjoy meeting all the great hunters along the way.

Thank You for all you do and the NasHunt charity event. It took me about 4 years to draw an archery tag for south east Iowa, this year I drew my tag. Just so happens tho, my wife and I just had our very first child. My baby girl was only about three weeks old when I left for my 2 week Iowa hunt. My wife knew I was trying to get a tag and thankfully our families were able to help while I was gone. The hunt itself was outstanding, lots of action and many up's and down's as the hunt went on. I had a few close encounters with great deer but couldn't close the deal. With archery equipment everything needs to be just perfect to get a chance at a mature whitetail. The two weeks of hunting ticked by and the grim thought of the last day of the hunt was here. Friday November 11, veterans day was the very last day I would be able to hunt Iowa. After checking the wind direction for the day, which was the worst possible for a river bottom stand the land owner and I thought would be best for one more sit. I had the most encounters with good bucks in that river bottom and the "wind was awful" but I decided to just go for it and get in that seat. Thank goodness I did!! That buck broke from the timber in the one place the wind was best and I was able to get a shot. The rest is history! This buck is not my largest, but is the best buck I've ever taken with my bow. However that's not what made this one so special. I'm a 13 year Army combat veteran and I was able to take such a great buck on veterans day. What a way to close out two long weeks!! I shoot a Hoyt Vector with Easton FMJ and Rage hypodermics, that combo did the trick!!
Thank you for your effort and thoughtfulness in helping out with such a great cause!! And I'm grateful to be able to help my Brother's and Sister's in uniform!

Hunt information: location, Westchester County N.Y., Bow: PSE DEER THUG, arrows: BLACK EAGLE CARNIVORE, broadhead: THUNDERHEAD 85 GRAIN, accessories: FLEXTONE GRUNT TUBE, PRIMOS CAN CALL,SCENTBLOCKER CAMO, TINKS SCENT BOMBS,LADDER STAND----- story: Cold morning,bucks were on their feet in the seeking pre-rut stage.I heard some restlessness on hill to my right above me, noticed this 8 pt coming down hill 25 yds in front of me looking for love.Once deer got directly in front of me he had stopped at a large downed tree and made a fatal decision to turn left and follow tree to 5 yds to base of my ladder stand! Once he cleared the tree he walked another 8' to the base of my ladder.I had put 2 TINKS scent bombs close to my ladder to mask my scent, one was next to me up my ladder, the other was only about 3 yds in front of my ladder on branch.Buck nosed up to my ladder to smell "high scent bomb" then went towards the one on ground.As he passed the 2nd scent bomb, he turned back to smell it, and was shot hard quartering away.Pass thru at 4 yds! Deer went down 30 yds in front of me,in sight from ladder. Took best pic I could from ladder and sent to my dad. Remained in stand for 2 more hours......the longest 2 of my life. My biggest buck to date! Memorable day for dad and I in deer woods!!! Thank you for your thoughtfulness in helping out with such a great cause!!

NasHunt VA Hunter Class Doug Costello Score 132
I feel really privileged to be a part of this great event and charity again. It was my 2nd day hunting The Kingdom Farm in Leesburg Virginia. I took an afternoon stand in a wood lot on the south side of the farm on the edge of a harvested bean field. It was pretty windy, but I felt pretty confident that I was downwind from a major funnel. Sure enough an hour in the 1st doe made an appearance. Then another and another. I could see a big body moving through the cover and finally he stepped out. The .308 with a 155gr A-Max piled him up right where he stood.
Thank you for your thoughtfulness in helping out with such a great cause!!
