Bacon for Life
submitted by Donnie Tyndall
Wild hogs in Florida usually run from 100-400 pounds with a 400 pounder being a monster. Because this one had been feasting on grain for several years it had grown to mammoth size. When Larry took it to the processor it weighed in at over 1100 pounds! The meat has no wild taste, as it was grain feed and Larry is quite the hero. He has fed many fireman and provided the homeless shelter in downtown Orlando with a couple of meals.

Anthony's Vermont Moose

I shot this moose in southern VT by West Dover. Last year I put in for a tag and to my surprise I received one!
My Biggest Deer Ever!
I was sitting in my treestand on a nice November evening and had only seen a small doe the day before, so I figured that it was going to be another one of those weekends.
Jack's Record Alaska-Yukon Moose
Dean Nelsen
Here is my ten year old son Jack Nelsen of Staples, MN. Jack shot this 255.5 B&C Alaska-Yukon bull moose this past September 2004. Jack’s moose was officially scored number two in the world by Rob Naplin of Park Rapids, MN. The bull had a 77 inch wide spread and was taken with one shot at 80 yards.

I harvested this buck in Delaware County, Iowa with my Mossberg 12 gauge in December of 2004.
Kentucky Buck of a Lifetime
Rod Goodman
I killed the buck of a lifetime! I have a lock on stand near a cedar thicket that I normally hunt, but I decided to make just a minor adjustment, and it made all the difference. I took my climber and moved about 30 yards to the other side of the thicket. It was a quiet afternoon and generally the deer move early in this part of the woods, but there was little action til around 4:25-4:30 when a doe came in and worked her way past my stand til she reached the trail I came in on and then she eased back to where she had came from, beginning to circle up behind me. I heard another deer directly behind my tree and stood to get a glimpse through the thicket, but I couldn't tell what it was, when back out to the side of me another deer caught my attention.
Alberta Dream Deer Hunt
Scott Reeves
I live in Huntsville Alabama where we have a very heavy deer population but most of our Bucks never get old enough to ever get over 200 lbs with most of them being about 150 to 160 lbs. I have deer hunted for over 20 yrs and am like most whitetail deer hunters in that my life's dream would be to be able to take one of those MONSTER Canadian bucks you see on those hunting TV shows, the ones that weigh over 300 lbs, have tons of mass and score really well.
Thank You Northwest Wind
Wayne E. Helland Jr.
The morning of Wednesday, 10/17/01 dawned cool and crisp. I checked the weather channel to determine my hunting strategy. The wind was blowing from the northwest at last! This was the opportunity I had been waiting for.
