DAVIS'S FIRST DEER

Eight-year-old Davis Rader was hunting with his father in northwest Tennessee when this buck ambled by. The young hunter downed the 165-pound whitetail with a 20-gauge slug.

GIFT BUCK FROM ABOVE

Michael Thompson of Bowie, Tex., said a prayer before daylight on the morning of his hunt. His reward was this 132 2/8-inch buck.

LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON

Todd and Zach Tibbitts took these two big Kentucky bucks within five minutes and one mile of each other. Both were personal bests.
