Michael Kennedy, Illinois

In his search for a trophy buck, Michael Kennedy of Loysville, Pennsylvania, had struck out in Canada. His luck improved dramatically on a shotgun hunt in Pike County, Illinois. At 11:30 a.m. on Nov. 21, 1997, Michael saw this 26-inch Midwest monster running across a field toward him. Two shots later, the 185-inch 11-pointer was his.
