As always, the lure of a great prize--make that, a choice between two great prizes--brought out the best in Whitetail 365 readers. When the folks at Bass Pro Shops (basspro.com) offered our caption contest winner the option of an Oculus 7.0 binocular or an Oculus Angled Spotting Scope, Hurteau and I had the happy chore of wading through nearly 500 entries (see them all here). It was no easy task whittling those down to ten finalists and one winner. But whittle we did, and here are ten entries -- in no particular order -- that came oh-so-close to grabbing the glass.
"Pssst. See these antlers? They're fakes. I know a guy who can help you out too." from airbornedoc
"I SAID, YOU NEED TO GET YOUR HEARING CHECKED! YOU NEVER KNEW HOW MANY TIMES I WALKED BEHIND YOU IN YOUR TREESTAND LAST FALL!'" from airbornedoc
"Unit 12, first season, just west of the big oak near the creek--wait for the big 10 pointer. And it has to look like an accident!" from fezzant
