The poll is closed! You have cast your votes and crowned the Top 10!
When I look at all the deer included in this contest, it is really hard for me to say that one is better than the other. Each story brings a different line, a different sense of accomplishment.
Through all the states involved and all the stories and pictures submitted, one thing is clear. We are all very blessed to have family and friends to support us and the passion we share for hunting deer. It is an incredible privilege to participate in this sport among so many great people.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the contest and thank you to those of you who voted and supported these hunters.
A huge thanks to our great sponsors as well! (please make sure to thank them too!)
I can't wait for next year. Remember, it's all about the chase.......
