Brian Sanders, Maryland
September 22, 2010
On Dec. 20, 2000, Brian Sanders of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, was hunting a farm in Montgomery County, Maryland, when he heard big antlers clashing. Brian nervously waited more than an hour for one of the combatants to appear. Finally, after several small bucks had passed his stand, the muzzleloader hunter squeezed off a shot on this monster 4x4. The high-racked deer has a 22 7/8-inch inside spread.
