OK, let's see the best outdoor/hunting/fishing picture you've ever taken. Not your favorite 3 pics, not the one you took last Thursday... your best/favorite!

Here's mine- most here have seen it. My buddy Slevy on the left, my bro in the middle, and me on the right. Slevy and I shot smallish 6xs on the first day and my bro shot his 7x2 (or 7x3; can't remember) on Day 6 (I think). It was my first elk hunt ever and we had the time of our lives.

I have taking lots of photographs. But this hunt with my daughter (that just graduated high school this weekend) stands out. She had killed several deer before this one, lots of turkeys, a antelope or two. But this hunt turned out to be fairly hard. Lots of walking, cold and windy. But this was really the first hunt that went from me doing most everything to her figuring it out.

Great pictures everyone and thanks for sharing them.

This is my favorite picture I've ever taken while hunting. This is from a few years ago during a mentored youth hunt here in PA with my son. Mom had just texted and asked how things were going and I took this selfie of us and sent her. It was mid morning and nothing was moving so he decided a little nap was in order.

I was blessed enough to be sitting with him this past season when he killed his first 2 deer, a doe and a spike buck in the same afternoon of our first day. I took a lot of pictures that day and it was my most memorable day in the woods but for some reason this picture of him napping on my shoulder is still my favorite.

Please keep your favorite pictures coming!

Very cool pic, Mike! I called a huge tom in while calling elk in Colorado years ago...he was crouched with his ears back, at about 15 feet. I didn't even think about my camera...drew my bow on him, and he turned and walked away :^/

My great uncle last summer. He is a 93 year old bachelor, WW2 vet, and this picture was the last time I took him out to see his cows. As a lifelong rancher, I think it captures the love he has for his ranching. He sold me his cattle and rents me his land. Great man. He is currently in hospice and in failing health.

Thanks for the compliments on the pic guys. I had no intentions of taking it and definitely didn’t know the lightening would strike at that moment. Thought it was a cool moment and snapped a pic with my phone.

He’s a very interesting man. He’s lived his entire life in the middle of a section with a 1/2 mile dirt driveway as the only way in and out of his house. He made a living by raising 30 cows and farming corn on his section of ground. You could write a book with all the stories he’s sharing with us these past few months.

This is one of my favorites... my daughter’s first longbeards after two years of harvesting Jake’s. She was so happy and I was happy for her! Definitely a hunt we will never forget. As we were taking her pictures another bird started up and in 15 minutes from the same setup I arrowed mine completing the same setup double. It’s hard to just pick one.... I’ve been told my snow bird pic was many favorites.

My life changed a little last July 11th!

Lucky for me, my daughter loves the outdoors just like I do. She’s been going hiking and shooting at the archery range with me since she was 3 weeks old.

She’s done tons of 3-6 mile hikes. 8.5 on Mother’s Day was the longest so far for her. As long as we’re outside doing something she’s happy, no matter the weather.

Lineman.... Truly magnificent! I hope that picture is preserved forever, not only as a personal tribute to your great uncle, but to every farmer out there who has devoted a life to it! Echoing what Ike said, it really captures the heart of America.

All of my grandparents farmed, my parents still farm (trying to "retire"), and now my siblings do as well. So that one hits home for me.
