Best Hunting and Fishing Photos from OL Readers, October 2013

Albino Coyote
While dove hunting in Roby,Texas with my friend Brady we came across this fully albino coyote. In all our years in the field we had never seen or heard of one so we were definitely surprised. Next thing I know I was able to stalk within 35 yards. I was comfortable enough at this distance to take a kill shot with my 12 gauge and dove loads. One of the coolest experiences of my life. -nathan weant
My first elk
Shot my first elk opening morning of muzzleloader season. My boyfriend helped guide me and called this 6 by 6 in with a cow call. From about 30 yards away I killed him with one shot strait through the heart and lungs. One of the best moments in my entire life, I cried tears of joy for about an hour after working my butt off to kill this monster bull. -alex_jankowski9

Trevor's Fish
This past spring, Trevor won a musky rod from the Musky Brothers at the Milwaukee Musky Show. He got so excited about the idea of catching a big fish, he saved up a bunch of money and bought a reel for it. He also started buying lures any time he got any money, and he's got quite a few now! So when we took our annual family vacation to Lake Buckatabon in Conover, WI, he couldn't wait to go out musky fishing. On Tuesday afternoon (7/16), Tim and Trevor went out fishing alone together. Less than a half hour after getting out there, Trevor told him he got a fish and started reeling it in. Tim said that he looked over and saw Trevor's rod bed way down, because the fish was diving. Trevor got it reeled in close, and they netted it! 45" & 20 lbs! Bigger than any fish any of his parents have ever gotten! Not bad for a 9-year-old, eh? -Jill Gorecki

Smashin some teal
After killing my monster bull opening day the next day we decided to kill some teal while the boys went out to try and kill another elk. We jumped these 4 teal off a pond and I sailed 2 ducks with one shot. Aaron shot the other 2. We marinated them that night and cooked em up! Teal are some of the best eatin I swear. -alex_jankowski9
