Russell Maverick, Minnesota

If you were to bag a deer with this much mass and a 22-inch inside spread, you'd figure you'd shot the bull of the woods. Russell Maverick of Pitt, Minnesota, insists he didn't. Hunting near home on Nov. 10, 1993, Russell took the lungs out of this bruiser at 400 yards with his .30/06. The shot was taken as the monster trailed a doe at 7:30 a.m. After having watched this buck and another one all through early bow season, Russell claims, "The other buck was bigger!"
