Keith Roberson, Ohio

When you only have four days to bowhunt, many hunters might yield to the temptation to just pick a tree and hope for the best. But Keith Roberson was savvy enough to do it a different way. The resident of Raleigh, North Carolina, spent most of the first day of his Ohio hunt scouting for the right stand location, and he found it at the intersection of two deer trails near a soybean field. That first evening, Keith saw this buck coming down the trail paralleling the field, and he arrowed the 181-inch brute at five yards. The 11-pointer, which was shot on Nov. 8, 2002, has tines up to 14 6/8 inches.
