Steven was hunting in Upper Michigan in bow season on November 14th 2011 with DOMINANCE IS EVERYTHING. It was his first day in the stand and a mature 8-pointer showed up mid-day. Steven isn't sure if the buck was the most dominant or if he was an intruder buck but he had a nice rack and Steven decided to take him. He arrowed the 140-class 8-point buck at less than 15 yards. The buck has a 19" inside spread.
But that is not all...
Steven kept hunting his stand site with the same set up because deer season was still open and he had a gun deer tag that was good starting on Day 2 of his hunt. On Day 1 he was bow hunting with D.I.E. and on Day 2 he was gun hunting with D.I.E.
Two days after taking his first D.I.E. buck (Nov 16 2011) the Michigan gun deer season was open and Steven shot a second 8-pointer from the same stand during the same set up. He hunted three straight days and was successful at taking two D.I.E. BUCKS! Congratulations go out to Steven for a job well done!
He has earned the rank of #10 in the world with D.I.E. and he is now a member of the D.I.E. hunter's pecking order.
I will keep records on the first 20 hunters in each state where whitetail hunting is legal, and also in Canada. In Wisconsin I may keep records on more than 100. I am using the first 50-100 D.I.E. hunter testimonials in my next book titled "DOMINANCE IS EVERYTHING... The Big Picture on Public Land!" That book will not be advertised for sale until it has been published. No more waiting lists folks.
Please call your D.I.E. hunt results in when you get a buck with D.I.E. so your accomplishment can be acknowledged! You are a D.I.E. hunter when you use the system as directed and a mature buck comes within 35 yards of you while you are on a D.I.E. hunt. I am looking for testimonials that my system works and that it worked for you the first time you used it as directed. Whether you got the buck or not isn't important to me. The fact that you saw him is!
Steven Van Boxtel is the second D.I.E. hunter to shoot a buck with a gun and a bow in the same season, and he is the first hunter to harvest a Michigan buck with D.I.E.! He also is the first to kill two bucks on one set up, and the third person to shoot one or more bucks from a permanent stand made out of plywood. I have yet to do that!
He used D.I.E. as directed! His testimonial will be here in a few days, and I will post it with the rest of the D.I.E. hunters testimonials when it arrives.
He also learned something he has shared with me and I am able to share with you. He stated a mature buck showed up within 35 yards of his stand on each of the first three days, but on Day 2 he didn't have a clean shot at the buck. The D.I.E. system is a magnet for breeding bucks and any buck that is willing to fight the herd's most dominant buck for the right to breed will show up on a D.I.E. hunt!
Congratulations to all the D.I.E. hunters who used the system this season. Whether you set it up right or not, you made an effort, and you will learn by any mistakes you make.
I got busted by a monster swamp buck on Day 1 and Day 2 of my WI gun hunt this year. I am only human, and I make mistakes. D.I.E. is not human, and it has never failed to this day.
Read the book and learn from your mistakes. You will become a successful D.I.E. hunter if you follow my instructions to a tee. Good Hunting to all of you. Stay Safe and enjoy nature. I will post more testimonials when they come in. The rut is on until January 8th for sure in WI, MI, and MN so why not buy a book and get out there to be hunted by kings?
