Deer of the Day - 301 Inches of Horn, Josh Tucker

Josh Tucker had a 2011 whitetail hunting season to remember. On the opening afternoon of the Prairie State's bow opener, Tucker was able to drop a 141-inch 10 pointer in Pike County, Illinois.

20 days later he was looking to fill his second buck tag and found success -- again in Pike County -- with an 11-point, 160-inch hoss.

21 days and 301 inches of horn! A great season by anyone's measuring stick!

Congrats on your bucks Josh!
