The Braggin' Board EASTERN OUTDOORSMEN SHARE THEIR PERSONAL BESTS

LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON Corey Goff of Delmar, Del., took this eight-pointer on the last day of the shotgun season. His dad, Steve, was shown with his whitetail in our first Deer of the Year feature in 1997.

CLEANING UP A pea-sized chunk of green sponge is all it took for Mark Kuhns of Grand Gorge, N.Y., to lure this 24-pound chinook on the Salmon River.

WAKE-UP CALL Tom Jones of Oswego, N.Y., watched as this trophy buck bedded 100 yards from his stand. Finally, at 4 p.m., he got up and came within range.
