Which One of These Is Your Favorite?
Big game hunting is likely the most popular in the outdoors. Big bugling elk. Huge long-tined bucks. Weird, not-as-common animals like axis deer and musk ox, they drive hunters bonkers every year as they chase these incredible critters. Here are eight of them that Realtree pro staffers and team members took during the 2017-18 hunting season.
Michael Waddell can call in anything from a south-Georgia turkey to a high-mountain bull elk. Here he poses with one from last season.
Nate Hosie knows the elk woods, too. Here's the bull he took last fall.
Vicki Cianciarulo loves hunting the exotic stuff. This is a big musk ox she arrowed last hunting season.
Kristy Barnes is a die-hard hunter. And she loves axis meat. That's why she traveled to Texas last fall to bring one home to the dinner table.
Tyler Jordan doesn't just slay the whitetails and turkeys. He gets after those big mulies, too.
Michael Hunsucker kills big mule deer as well. Here he poses with a 2017 archery kill.
Shawn Luchtel isn't to be outdone. He tagged his own big mule deer, too.
Nate Flynn might be a whitetail hunter. But he chases those mule deer as well. Here's his from last year.
