2011 5×6 Muley 29.5″ wide
A surprise buck that showed himself on the last day of the season. We hadn’t seen any wall hangers the entire season. My dad spotted this guy from about a mile or more away so we decided to get a better look. It’s a good thing. We ended up getting him the “Wall Draw”. No doubt this one is a wall hanger!

Double Antler
Here is my best deer ever! I shot this deer 10-26-2011 I seen him standing in a draw and didn’t see the double antler but he looked like a shooter so I took my chance with ground shrink and came out on good terms, He measured out at 30″ -jakep
Girlfriend’s First Deer
I took my girlfriend hunting for the first time on the first weekend of November. She took her new bow that she had just gotten and we picked a nice easy to shoot out of stand. On a very windy, chilly day in north Missouri after seeing nothing else all evening this behemoth 10 point trotted by at 20 yards and she smoked him. -twaddzilla
My daughter and my buck
I shot this buck the 2nd weekend of the Minnesota firearms season. When we got back to the house we snapped this photo of my 8 month old daughter looking very pleased that dad got his buck.

14 point brutus
I was on the ground hunting the edge of a small secluded field, and it was just before dusk when Brutus busted out into the field. He had his face to the ground in-search of a doe. I ranged him at 35 yards, and waited for him to come into my shooting lane. The rest is in the picture. To think I almost didn’t go out for the evening hunt.
Suzanne with her Red Drum
Suzanne caught this Red Drum with a spinning rod and a jig at Cape Lookout, NC. She was very proud of this fish. -travis299
Say cheeeesssseeeeee!
This deer was captured by one of our trail cams. I thought deer were made of venison…this one is clearly a ham. -mikebodette
Southern Michigan Swamp Buck
It was my 3rd time out this year. I had a good feeling with the moon phase, temperature, and calm wind. I saw a doe about 50 yards out and right behind her this buck was coming. I hit my call and he came right to me. I was shaking but pulled the shot off. -Brandon Maher
Albino Bow
My buddy and i leased some land in Caswell County, North Carolina. We have cameras out for the better part of season and we haven’t gotten a single pic of this little doe. I have seen a few albinos in my life but always from the road. I was fortunate enough to get a clean shot at this little albino doe. Its the most excited iv been in years of deer hunting.

First Deer Taken
This was my son, Austin’s, first year out for rifle season. At about 9am after some rattling and grunting this 8 pointer came sneaking in to our right. Austin made a fantastic 100 yd shot and dropped him in his tracks. Ironically this was a deer I had been after for 5 years! What a day, 30 minutes earlier I had dropped a 7 pointer from the same stand! Not bad for a first deer! -rszrejna
My First 2 Deer
First two deer I have ever killed on the same drive with my hunt club! Sitting in the tree stand had 3 come up from behind me and 2 was all I could get! Never felt an adrenaline rush like that in my life… Absolutely loved that feeling!! Got a lesson on gutting and skinning the deer that day also! What an adventure. -ksully10

First Hunt
Tommy Smith, age 10 (center),shot his 8 pointer with a crossbow in the first hour of his first hunt ever. The buck came in before 8 am during the Michigan Youth Hunt. Neither youth hunt or cross bow controversies can take away his fist-pumping excitement or the chance for his older brother, friends and family to be a part of this incredible experience. This opener belonged to Tommy! – tedsmith
