Newton County produced this 8-pointer last Oct. 25 for Kevin Danforth, of Covington.


Ben Stone, of Conyers, was hunting with his dad on their Jasper County farm last Oct. 30 when Ben shot this 8-point buck.


Bret Vinson, 18, of Columbus, got in a sit after morning class on Nov. 1, and it paid off with this Marion County 8-pointer.


Zach Bradley, of Carroll County, with a 46-inch, 15-lb. longnose gar he shot while bowfishing when the Chattahoochee River flooded outside its banks in west Georgia on June 8.


Lee Henthorn (left) and 2017 Truck-Buck winner Max Lewis, both of Albany, with a more than 300-lb. female hog that had tusks measuring 4 inches and 3 7/8 inches. Lee said it took a tractor with a front-end loader to get the massive hog out of the field where they killed it with night-vision optics.


Terry Butts, of Temple, with her first-ever deer, a nice 10-pointer taken on Oct. 24 last season.


Jimmy Laska, of Tifton, saw this Randolph County 9-pointer the previous morning running a doe, and the buck came back Nov. 17, busting a group of does “like a covey of quail,” he said.


Adel’s Josh Blackston shot this 9-pointer on Nov. 16 while hunting in Tift County. He called it his “Redemption Buck” after losing a big buck the week before.


A pond in Morgan County produced this awesome 13-lb. largemouth for Christopher Swain on Jan. 24.


Joe Silvers, of Fairmount in Gordon County, killed this 6-foot timber rattlesnake on May 4 at his barn. The snake was as big round as Joe’s arm and had 12 rattles.


Here’s a public-land bird from last season killed by Chris Turple, of Grovetown. Chris was at Clark Hill WMA when he killed the gobbler with 1 1/8-inch spurs and a 10-inch beard.

WF McCullough, who had a 75th birthday in June, was hunting from a blind and used his mouth to grunt and stop this Spalding County 9-pointer for a shot last Nov. 13.


Instead of hunting his bow stand on Nov. 12, the wind caused Trey Nevils, of Wrens, to hunt a stand only set up for gun hunting where he hoped to just kill a hog. This 8-pointer stepped out at 160 yards, and it was the buck Trey had been bowhunting 1,600 yards away.


Niki Barber, of Loganville, with her Jasper County 10-point buck taken Nov. 12.


Check out this buck still in full velvet when killed on Nov. 3 and growing a funky rack. Cory Wilson, of Locust Grove, shot the awesome deer in Meriwether County last season.


Kaylene Weaver, of Montezuma, said they needed meat for the freezer, so she shot two does while hunting in Macon County the morning of Nov. 15. Then the big 12-point came in checking out the second doe she had shot.


This impressive double-beamed buck with a drop tine was killed Nov. 15 in Webster County by Frank Cawthon, of Windermere, Fla.


Lots pictures in three years, but Nov. 2 was only the second encounter with this Harris County 10-pointer for Keith Page, of Columbus.


Jordan Beeching, of McRae, with the 8-point buck he shot on Halloween morning last season in Appling County.


Cory Hill and his three kids—Natalee, Rylee and Lanie—show off Cory’s good day turkey hunting in Elbert County.
