Tayler Riggen was born and raised in Marion County, Iowa. From his earliest days his father would take him squirrel hunting, and since, he has been completely addicted to the outdoors. Tayler has made the outdoors less like a hobby, and more like a way of life. He is now working for Mossy Oak Properties out of Albia, specializing in the brokerage and management of many properties across the state. Living in the heart of a big buck country has fueled Tayler’s year round pursuit of giant mature whitetails. Tayler also has a passion for other game, making regular trips west in search of mule deer, elk, pronghorn and more. From bowfishing the rivers, to hiking the timber, Tayler will be filming so you can follow along. Tayler also shares his passion for hunting with his wife, who will be regularly tagging along to check trail cameras, pick up sheds, and in the 365 day a year, trophy pursuit. Whether Tayler is sitting in a treestand, planting food plots, or helping a client with a property, you can follow along, learning with him from his successes as well as failures.

I’m sitting here in southern Iowa currently watching it rain, as it has done for the last few days. It seems like rain totals have varied pretty drastically around the area, as I’ve been getting quite a few different reports. All I know is what my gauge says, and over the last few days we [...]
For a dedicated bowhunter, this is one of the worst text messages you can get. I received a picture this week from a friend, of one of my top Hit List bucks, and he looks like this now. “Hank Williams Jr.” isn’t the biggest deer in the woods. In fact, I know there are [...]
In my last article, I gave the opinion that the hunting world has become obsessed with the final score of a rack. I include myself with that statement. I am hopelessly addicted to large racked whitetails. For most, that obsession comes with a certain level of pressure. Pressure from yourself, pressure from the rest of [...]
