Franklin’s Kelli Pate was hunting with her dad on the family farm in Carroll County when she killed this big 7-point buck, her best buck to date.

Wayman Henson got his first gobbler last season while hunting in Lamar County. Wayman’s first bird weighed 23 3/4 pounds and had a 1 1/4-inch spur and an 11-inch beard.

GON member Larry Hines, of Toomsboro, with his Wilkinson County buck killed on Nov. 25 last season.



Matt Plant, a GON member from Ty Ty, caught this bass on a crappie hook and a minnow.

Joey Ramion hunted all day on Saturday, Nov. 10 in south Fulton County and had let several bucks and does walk when this big-bodied 9-pointer showed.


Amelia Daniel was hunting in Pulaski County on Nov. 3 this past deer season when she shot this mostly white piebald 6-point buck.

This 9-pointer closed to within 25 yards of Mark Halstead’s stand. The Fort Valley hunter was in Taylor County last Nov. 10 when he shot the buck.



Crawford County produced this 10-point buck on Nov. 7 for Blake Doles, of Warner Robins. Small bucks were chasing a doe, and after Blake used a grunt call, the bigger buck appeared.

Brittany Perry with her first buck, a nice 9-pointer taken in her home county, Tift. Rylee Roberson, 2, is helping show off the buck.



Cathy Bowden has passed up many small bucks during her five years of deer hunting, so she’s well-deserving of her second-ever buck, this Washington County buck killed on Nov. 2.

GON member John Brown, of Hartwell, shot this big female coyote in Franklin County on Jan. 7. “No telling how many of our turkeys have been eaten by this yote,” John said. “My son Jason performed an autopsy and found 3 pounds of fresh red meat in its stomach.”



Reid Jones, 16, of Marietta, shot this big buck in Hancock County in December. The main-frame 8-pointer had a massive left side and a jacked-up right antler.

Joe Lester, of Ideal, with his 230-lb. Macon County 8-pointer from last season. Joe didn’t see a deer until this buck showed up at 7 p.m.

Ricky Jones, of Metter, shot this 8-point buck while hunting in Candler County on Oct. 29.
