Troy Spooner lives in southwest Michigan and has been a deer hunter since the age of seven. Since then, he has taken many respectable bucks while hunting the public lands of southern Michigan and the wilderness area of the Upper Peninsula (U.P.). His techniques rely heavily on year round scouting to find good bucks and getting away from the crowds when it comes time to hunt them. Troy is a minimalist and relies on only the basic essentials when chasing trophy whitetails. go deeper and hunt harder is his motto and his choice of minimal equipment is what he is all about.
Troy is also a accomplished outdoor writer, having had works published in Michigan Out of Doors magazine, North American Whitetail, Big Buck, Deer and Deer Hunting, Michigan Sportsman, Illinois Fish and Game and Bowhunter magazine.
Troy hopes that his personal experiences hunting public land whitetails and his big woods deer hunting strategies will help viewers of the nextbuk website and future videos gain insight that will help them be more successful in thei whitetail pursuits.
