After sitting the first day and only seeing one doe, the second day of Illinois deer season started off right with 5 does at daylight. About 9, I saw this buck in the distance and then again an hour later. The third time I saw him was at 40 yards. The picture tells the rest of the story!--messig
I was walking out from my stand on November 20 at about 10:40 am. I spotted a doe and eased over to a nearby tree when I got to it I noticed this guy in the broom straw. My biggest buck to date and pretty good buck for Virginia!
This was my second deer. I got it while standing in the same exact spot as my first deer. (on my lucky rock) I was also lucky enough to be with the old man again this year. Making memories...thats what its all about!--doncunniff
This beautiful boy is a 10-point buck, field dressed at 150 pounds, with an 18-inch spread--my biggest buck yet. I took him off of Hillsgrove, PA with my .270--mikegelnett
My father and I have been after this buck in Kansas for the past few years. I have only seen him one other time. Finally, opening day of Kansas rifle season, everything fell into place. This brute stepped out at 130 yards and a double lung shot put him down. He was aged at 6 1/2 years and has not yet been scored. This truly is a buck of a lifetime, and I couldn't have done it without my dad.--jwildcats
Ten point buck 220lbs. Green score 167.--Scott Kaiser, Minnesota
Shot this 8 point on November 15, 2009 at 8:40 a.m. After passing on a couple of smaller bucks I was happy as ever to take a shot at this guy. A 35-yard shot by my 870 and a hundred yard dash later I found him on the edge of a swamp.--MWKMN
My husband and son went up north hunting to try and get the big one. My daugther and I stayed home in NC. I went hunting with some of our friends on November 28, 2009. To my surprise, I got the biggest deer I'd have ever seen. Needless to say my husband was so proud. This will be our first mount in the house.--dougandlisa
This was a last day archery buck from Pennsylvania. The arrow went perfectly through the heart.--MarkBeitler
My name is Nathan Lahr and I got to come home from OEF X for first shotgun season in Iowa. On the right is Justin Schaben, and he spotted the deer in a wooded creek in the center of a cornfield. I made it to the top of the creek while he stood at the bottom. The buck broke out on the top and ran down toward Justin, I fired once and he fired twice. Later I made the kill shot on this monster.
This is my first whitetail deer. It is a 13-pointer, 200+ lbs, opening day at about 9:30. My family's been hunting at our cabin for 23 years and the biggest anyone got was an 8 pointer and on my third year out i got this. I used a 30-30 Marlin. It was a 70 yard shot and it droped staright down didn't even flinch: 1 shot 1 kill--tell me what you think--abfreddie64
My dad, Jimmy, killed this buck while hunting in Chatham, VA. Deer was killed on Thanksgiving Day, 2009.--johnnied222
