Deer of the Day - Friday the 13th Buck, Jesse Derr

Jesse Derr was lucky to get a shot at this buck and that statement has nothing to do with his hunting skills. Hailing from Ellsworth, Maine, the airline Jesse used to fly to Choctaw County, Alabama lost his luggage -- including his rifle -- leaving the hunter gear-less for his whitetail hunt.

The kind folks at Pushmataha Plantation in Lisman, Alabama were able to find a rifle and spare clothes for Derr to use and on Friday the 13th (January 2012), the unlucky traveler punched a tag on a terrific buck that green scored 166 7/8 inches.

Congrats on a great deer Jesse!
