Deer of the Day - First Buck, Gavin Sanders

While hunting in Steeleville, MIssouri with his dad P.J., 11-year-old Gavin Sanders was able to shoot this great 8-point buck, his first, with his .22-250. This was his third year of hunting, but the first in which he was allowed to "hunt for horns."

Congrats on a fantastic buck Gavin!



We want your buck as our Deer of the Day! Please send us an image of your buck, a brief description of your hunt and the gear used to whitetail@imoutdoors.com
