Mike Wright, Saskatchewan

On Dec. 5, 1996, after four days of seeing nice Saskatchewan bucks but nothing huge, Mike Wright of New Liskeard, Ontario, got his chance. A small buck ran a doe into heavy cover, attracting the attention of this brute. At first the big deer wouldn't come out of the cover to run the smaller buck away, but finally he gave in to temptation. When the 260-pound 13-pointer exposed the front half of his body briefly, Mike dropped him with a bullet to the lungs. The buck has a gross B&C score of 184 despite having snapped off a tine.
