This is my fathers (Steve Harmon) recent kill from Illinois. It was later in the day and way to hot outside for big deer to be moving or so he thought. After setting up where a 126 class deer was seen crossing earlier it wasn't long till this monster came within ten yards of him and made a rub. Seconds later he made his draw and a perfect shot.
All 3 bucks were taken with 2 hours of each other! Great day for deer hunting.
Here’s My son’s first deer, My Biggest Buck ever and my Brother-in- laws first all killed during modern gun season 2009.
Grandpa Trying to Read
Not only do Grandpa and I race to read F&S; now we share with the grandkids.
CB’s 8 point 22″ wide piebald buck.
Was lucky enough to get this piebald buck on opening morning of rifle season in Bedford County, VA. He is a typical 8 pointer, 22″ wide outside, 20″ wide inside and weighed in around 180 pounds. Was killed with a Savage 25-06 at 228 yards. We caught this guy on our trailcams several times over the last couple months.
74″ Plus size sturgeon, caught off the Columbia river.
First fish to be caught, it just had to be an oversize. No fishes were harmed during this process of catch and release.
The “Backyard Brawler” from Oklahoma
Seven years ago I took over managing a 122 acre farm and after an agressive doe harvest. We are starting to reep the fruits of our labor. With this main frame eight point buck with a 20 inch inside spread, and a 12 1/2 inch G-2. And the funny thing is our area is not known for producing big bucks until now! I guess the cat is out of the bag. He is the smallest buck on our hit list.
Monster first bear
I took my first black bear, this 760 lb boar, on Nov 9, 2009 in Hyde County NC. The bear stepped out of the pococin and into my shooting lane at 9:10 AM. I took him at 156 yards with a Benelli R1 270 WSM. It took 6 shots to drop him where he stood. Thanks to Conman’s Guide Service for an unbelievable stand hunt and a once-in-a-lifetime bear!
Last minute Buck.
Whew…..I had a chance to sit one last night before the gun hunters hit the woods. I’m glad I harvested him before the “cheaters” hit the woods.
Wisconsin Halloween Buck
150+ class buck shot in western Wisconsin on Halloween morning. 1st buck shot with the bow.
Public Land Hunting…
I shot this 11 point on public land on opening day. I jumped him and another buck along with two does in a grown up field. He is the biggest buck I have ever killed, can’t wait until next year!
A couple of Woodys
I shot this 2 woodys in South Dakota 2nd weekend of duck season.
Jerry’s Cat w/ Ted and Gary
Caught this 75.4 lb catfish on 10 lb. test line. Certified as a line class record by the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame.
First Hunt, First Buck
This is my son Logan age 10. His first hunt, first deer! He had no idea how big it was until they got closer to it. Talk about excitement. Truly a great experience for your first hunt.

BUddy Got this Big BUCk!
My best friend and I had the hunt of a lifetime when we took these two bucks from the same stand within ten minutes of each other. Both bucks were chasing a doe before coming to an area of standing water to drink just before dark. My 10 pointer grossed 163 1/8 while his 8 pointer grossed 131. We have a lot of great memories of hunting together but this one is sure to last a lifetime.
Thanks to F&S; I knew to hunt this buck Halloween night! My dad went with me. We didn’t know how big he really was! He came in right before six and quartered away at 30 yards. The exciting part is that my dad had never gone out with me before and had a video camera with him and taped the whole thing! I have to thank my landowner who allows me to hunt and God who directs the deer and the arrows!
My Big Buck in NW Indiana
I shot this buck Nov 20 with a Remington 870 20 gauge shotgun, just before dusk on our property in NW IN. I’ve been hunting with my husband for three years, and got a doe the first year, but this is my first buck. He’s an old guy – older than 5.5 years. He has 8 points, with one more broken off. He weighed 224 pounds!

Buck of a lifetime
This is a once in a lifetime deer for an average hunter!
Albino Pheasant North Dakota
I shot this partial albino pheasant this Fall (2009) in North Dakota. I spotted the white head from the road. Grabbed my gun and sprinted out into the wheat stuble field. The bird held until I got into range. One in a million chance of ever doing this!

Big Fat Steelie
Another beautiful steelhead! This time on a black bugger! I fought it for 20 minutes and fell in trying to keep the fish from breaking down into another set of rapids. Good thing it was nice weather!

Eagles fighting over a carcass..
I set my trail camera overlooking a deer carcass the results were amazing lots of good photos but this one tops them all.
Believe it or not, the little guy wins………
Ten Point Buck
I was watching a doe behind me when I heard something. So I turned around and saw the buck trotting towards me with his head down. I shot twice he went down then he got back up and I shot again as he went behind some brush. I poked him with my gun and he got up and ran in the corn so I finished him in the corn. The green score is 167 and he weighed around 230lbs.
“The first time in”
I shot my second best buck on 11/2/09 in Monroe county, N.Y. my very first time in this specific location. He came right into my rattling and grunting sequence at 8:30 in the morning and presented me with a picture perfect broadside shot at 20 yds.
Josh Cabler and Cody Boye
Me and Cody with a pile of divers.
My daughter Mackenzie, age 14, shot this buck on Halloween, which is also my birthday. It is only the 2nd buck of her life-we can’t wait to see what she brings home next year!
My Wife’s Trout
My wife does loose all my gear but she seems to catch bigger but fewer fish than me when we fish together. I was catching lots of 14″ and smaller cutthroats and then she pulls in a 32″ Lake Trout that was eating the cutthroats that I was catching. I was proud of her but don’t take her as often, I still have an ego to take care of.
“Woody” 2×4 Whitetail
Nov 14th, 2009, 8:00am, +300yds, 300ft in elevation, 30.06, 165gr bullet = 2×4 nicknamed “Woody” Bullet entered right behind the right shoulder and exited through his chest. Buck ran~30 yards. I thought it was going to be a pretty decent 4×4 until I got his head pulled out of the log and snow he plowed into, and was pleased to see the perfect bull horn on the right side.
Well it was a Saturday night and there was about 3 does and 3 fawns out in the food plot. Then 3 of them just scattered and this big boy came out.
Glassing the Fog
All the expensive optics in the world can be no match for mother nature some days….glassing the sea of fog…
Upstate New York Bow Buck
This buck was taken from a tree stand on November 5,2009 the afternoon before the picture was taken. The deer went down 30 yards from where he was shot. To date this is the biggest deer taken off the land we hunt on. He weighed out at 180 pounds and was 3.5 years old.
On his first day hunting with his new crossbow my 8 year old son shot this 7 point buck. Afterwards he told me he couldn’t stop shaking and I told him neither could I. It was by far the best experience I’ve had in the woods in my 30+ years of hunting. Cam told me it was the best day of his ENTIRE life!!
Weird Non-Typical on Public Land
First year hunting public land in Illinois at Beall Woods State Park, open to archery only. I saw this buck a couple weeks earlier just as pre-rut was coming on, but he was just out of range. November 16th he came by at 15 yards. My personal best buck and also the weirdest.
That doe I shot the other day…
One of the many delicious meals i often speak of. Seared venison loin, mashed potatoes, roasted veggies, sauteed mushrooms and onions. Paired with a glass of red. Yeah, i know,…we should open a resturaunt.

November is prime time for the rut, and you’re taking advantage. We’ve received hundreds of photos of the big deer you’ve taken over the past 30 days. These are our favorites.
