Dan Miller, 68, from Nehawka, NE, saw the blinking light on his answering machine upon returning home from out of town late Tuesday evening, September 4. The unexpected message from Ike Eastman informed him that he was the 2012 Eastmans’ Bowhunting Journal’s Fourth Annual Hunt Winner. Not knowing if the message was real or not, Dan knew he had a long night of waiting before he could call and verify the news with the Eastmans’ office the next morning.
Dan, a retired UPS employee of 30 years and hunter safety instructor, will be met by Guy Eastman and the Eastmans’ Hunting TV crew during the last week of September. Dan and the crew will watch in awe as mature herd bulls push harems of cows through high-alpine meadows and grassy creek bottoms with satellite bulls in tow. Dan will surely have to hold back when presented the opportunity to take an aggressive satellite bull and hold out for a real trophy. Over the years, the hunt winner bull’s score have averaged 354 inches B&C gross! To top this all off, Dan will be able to watch his hunt unfold on the Outdoor Channel on Eastmans’ Hunting TV. This will be a hunt that he’s surely never to forget and you can see why it’s the most anticipated hunt giveaway in the industry. Good luck Dan!
