Big game hunting is likely the most popular in the outdoors. Big bugling elk. Huge long-tined bucks. Weird, not-as-common animals like axis deer and musk ox, they drive hunters bonkers every year as they chase these incredible critters. Here are eight of them that Realtree pro staffers and team members took during the 2017-18 hunting season.
