Larry Moyer, Texas

On Dec. 20, 1992, the wind was blowing so hard in Medina County, Texas, that Larry Moyer expected a deerless morning. On top of that, the crossing Larry was watching was the same one he'd stared at on three previous sittings without seeing a single whitetail. Suddenly, at 7:30 a.m., the hunter saw this big 9-pointer step out 125 yards from the ground blind. Knowing he wouldn't have much time to react, Larry brought his rifle up, aimed and squeezed off a shot within five seconds of the time the buck appeared in the narrow shooting lane. The 3 1/2-year-old Hill Country buck has brow tines in excess of 5 inches, quite long for deer in that region.
