The results are in, and big game ranging from bears and boars to bucks, bulls and rams is what American Hunter readers pursued most in the past year. But while big game is the big theme, know that some unique birds landed within our pages, too. Regardless of the species, though, this says a lot about you, the American hunter, and your dedication to our favorite pastime.

This year, entries came in from coast to coast. More than half the states in the nation are represented in print this year—it’s clear everyone sought to ensure their neck of the woods was included. And sprinkled among these pages is game from across the globe, too. Clearly, all of you are excited to show off your success. Rest assured, we’re just as eager to see it.

These photos are a testament to the American hunter, to whatever he or she may pursue, wherever that may occur. We all are more than just observers of nature. We participate. We live it. American Hunter is proud to present the culmination of the passion, patience and pride we all share in the glorious pursuit of our favorite game.
