"Matt's Oregon Buck"
Photo provided by: Matt Jaeger

It was opening weekend of the rifle hunt in southwest Oregon when Matt Jaeger took this fine buck.
Matt writes, "It was rainy and cool. Perfect for our deer here. I walked around until 9:00 am when the sun began to hit the spot I hunt. As the sun warmed the area, the place crawled with deer. I did not have time to hide. I just sat very still on a stump, out in the open. A large group of does and fawns feed towards me, when I saw a small forkie. I passed on him because it was opening weekend. Suddenly, this big guy showed himself. One shot from the old trusty 270 and then tender loins for dinner."
