Steve Greenwood, Minnesota

The harder a spot is to hunt, the better the odds that it's holding a mature buck. Steve Greenwood of Grantsburg, Wisconsin, proved it during the 1989 gun season in Wadena County, Minnesota. As Steve stopped to take a break on a deer drive through a particularly nasty swamp, he saw antlers moving slightly in the grass. A quick neck shot with a .30/06 dropped the trophy 8-pointer. Steve bagged his buck on the last drive of the second day of the November season.
