Crossing fences aren't easy tasks. Need a way to make it easier? Employ a swimming pool ladder.

4 | CRIMSON SPLASH

You don't always get that perfect shot right off the bat.

Willie had to hold at full draw for more than a minute.

In 20-degree temps.

And still made it count. Clutch.

7 | THE BEST PART

As one might suspect, Willie is a busy man. This annual deer camp is one of those rare escapes where he spends time with the entire Buck Commander crew, baseball standouts Adam Laroche and Ryan Langerhans as well as musicians Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean and other friends.

While the buck was special to Willie, it was the time at camp that meant the most.
