From Bryan Anderson: “This one is of my oldest son, Nick (13), with his opening day buck that he shot just after 9 a.m. in Fulton County.

He had the patience to let the buck come in to only 22 yards before putting the 20 gauge slug exactly where i needed to be.

I couldn’t be more proud of him!”

Rob Jockisch: “I harvested this deer on Friday morning of the first shotgun season at 11 a.m.

I first saw him at 7 a.m. with four does and videotaped him for about 20 minutes.

My dad helped me scout and set up for this 16-pointer.

He had seen him before and knew he was in the area!”
