14. Tag Team
Lindsay Groom wasn't a hunter when she met her husband, Kevin, but after two years of marriage to a serious whitetail fanatic, she's was so gung ho for big bucks that she was ready to hunt on her wedding anniversary. As it turned out, the wind wasn't quite right, so she had to wait until the next day, Nov. 7, to arrow this 150-class 13-pointer near Groveport, Ohio. Groom, a culinary school graduate who enjoys preparing the fruits of her and Kevin's harvest, credits her husband with helping her scout and hunt a specific trophy buck, but she isn't shy about making sure his preparations are first-rate. When they settled into their blind, which Kevin had brushed in a few days earlier, Groom felt he'd left too little room to shoot. "We had a nice little whisper argument about 30 minutes before the buck came in," Groom says with a laugh, "but we got it figured out. He had to break a few branches before we sat down."
