Dinner on the Table!
Dewayne Burford
Walked over a ridge and there were three heads, and I pulled up on the first and gave a cluck from a mouth call, he gobbled and boom dinner on the table!
First Javelina Success
Harry Grizzle
Harry Grizzle age 11 with a .243 Winchester took this javelina at 20 yards. It was opening day in the Arizona rifle hunt unit 37A. This is his first big game success.
Friday the 13th Buck
Wayne E. Helland Jr.
There was a misty rain with the wind blowing from the Northwest. It was a melancholy afternoon on Friday the 13th in October of 2006. It was supposed to be a dreary "bad luck" day. I abandoned my normal daily tree stand vigil. This was a perfect day to sneak though a cornfield where I knew a nice deer was making his home. With a light wind and the slight breeze I could be ultra quiet in the big buck bedding area.

Thanks Dad, and a Wall Hanger to End it All...
Paul Thein
I'm now 40-years old and I've been hunting a family farm since I've been a teenager fresh out of hunter's safety classes. Hunting is a family tradition for us. Our hunting party consists of cousins and close family friends. Over the years I have watched many of them bag the big whitetail wall hanger you dream of. Of course I can't complain and have done well on the family farm myself.
Padden's First Deer
I killed this deer in my pasture in Oklahoma. I am 9 years old and this is the first deer I have ever killed. She weighed 80 pounds. I got to shoot at her with my dad's 30-30. I tackled my dad and told him thank you for taking me hunting. Thanks Dad!
Record Size Mule Deer
Jamie Gerein
2nd largest typical mule deer ever taken in Canada and largest in North America for 2005.
The Wisconsin Story Deer
Timothy Peters
I have hunted since I was 13 years old when my father sat me by a tree and left me. He told me not to move as he'd never be able to find me if I did. It sounds more horrible than it was as it was a public hunting area with a lot of hunting pressure. My father had left work at 12:00 o'clock on Friday, picked us two boys up from school and drove 200 miles.
The $20 Buck
Bob Mancuso
The Colorado Wildlife Federation sponsored a raffle for a Governors deer tag in the spring of 2001. I bought one ticket for twenty dollars figuring I was just donating to a good cause. Nobody was more surprised than me when I got the call congratulating me on winning the tag!
