Deer of the Day - Matched in Montana, Doug & Tina Riley

My wife and I shot these two bucks in Northwest Montana on the day before Thanksgiving this past season just a half-mile apart. We call Tina's buck the "prayer buck" as, shortly after she heard me shoot, she said a little prayer for a chance for both of us to shoot bucks on the same day. We have harvested several nice bucks over the years while hunting together, just never on the same day.

Her prayer was answered when her 10 point ghosted by her just one hour later. Both bucks were alone and appeared to be cruising for does. It was truly a very special husband and wife hunt!


We want your buck as our Deer of the Day! Please send us an image of your buck, a brief description (including where you're from) of your hunt and the gear used to whitetail@imoutdoors.com
