Meier said the adrenaline rush of riding a bull only compares to the adrenaline rush of getting close to a big whitetail or mule deer.

“It's hard to explain why I like it so much,” Meier said. “I guess it's just bred into me, being out in the wild.”

His wife, Kristen, also is an avid hunter and the couple has spent countless hours together in a deer blind.

As far as the proposed new deer hunting regulation which would limit Oklahoma deer hunters to one buck for the combined gun and muzzleloader seasons, Meier said, “If it was me, I would make it where you had to take a doe out before you could use your buck tag. Being so overpopulated in does, we've got to create it where hunters want to take does.”

And on his bucket list?

“I would like to do a red stag hunt in New Zealand and I really want to try and get me a moose. I have been a couple of time but I haven't got one yet,” he said.

“I don't' do a lot of elk hunting. It's not something I try to schedule. I am chasing them whitetails.”
