WINNER: Matt Pruner, Sioux Falls, South Dakota
Was hurt 5 years ago in a swimming accident. I started hunting again 2 years ago. I had no success last year, but this year bagged this nice 4×4 with my wheelchair mount from Buckmasters. I'm very fortunate to have a dad and brother that make my hunts happen!

The buck is only a spike buck, the one on the right but the amazing piece is that Steve shot these 2 deer with a muzzleloader in one morning. He is a paraplegic as you can see. Attached is another pic of his buck shot with his crossbow in September. As a paraplegic he has to get up much earlier than any other hunter would even think of to get ready to go out. He has many great racks in his basement. I hope you consider him for the ribs. Thanks, Mike

This 4x5 Whitetail was taken just south of Woonsocket, SD. A bit atypical but a very nice Rack. Should make for a very nice soup!!!

Hope the pic sends alright. We have pictures of this deer on trail camera. Passed up smaller ones during bow hunting & the first day of rifle. Got it with one shot

My Muley Buck was shot on November 12, 2012, near Kyle, SD, on a friend's ranch. It is a 4 X 4. Scored right at 150. Nicest buck I have ever shot and it is definitely going on my wall.

This year I was fortunate enough to draw my first buck tag in South Dakota. My buddies and I saw this buck chasing two does into a walk-in area in Clay County, South Dakota. My friend and I then walked-in about 250 yards into the edge of some cattails, when all of the sudden the two does bust out with the buck right behind them. Using my AR-10, shooting .308 Winchester, I fired a round, thinking I missed, I went to fire again and all I heard was a click, my rifle failed to eject the brass from my first shot! I quickly dropped my magazine, cleared the chamber and all I had was one round left, I pulled the rifle back to my shoulder, got the buck in the rifle scope, about 65 yards out and pulled the trigger. I managed to get a great shot and the buck stopped in his tracks. I could not have been more excited! This was a great experience and this buck will be going on the wall!

Went all the way west river for a week and didn't see anything. Came home and found this in my back yard. Shot with a bow. Scored a 181 at pope and young. Record for the second biggest deer in South Dakota and may possibly be the first.

This post is in memory of "Doc" she was my guide/hunting buddy and friend. She died about 15 minutes before I bagged this buck. More to the story, but this will surfice.
