Last month, we launched our brand new Camera Corner app that allows you to upload your best fishing and hunting pictures, see them instantly, share them directly to Facebook and Twitter, and earn points that could win you FREE gear.
We had so many submissions flood in this February, that we want to share with you the best of the bunch. These suckers are impressive. There's Cole Horn who bagged a 10.5-inch Kentucky long beard at only six years old! Then at the other end of the spectrum, Fred Hale spends every day of his glorious retirement fishing, and in June of last year pulled up 30-pound, 42-inch striper in Missouri. Sounds like something we could get used to!
Kick back and check out the best photos from around the country:
Chelsea caught this crappie at the Brushy Creek Recreation Area in Iowa.
Eight-year-old Braylon Fortin caught this largemouth bass fishing with his Papa Ricky on Lake Russell in South Carolina.
On Jan 25 it was about 6 degrees with a layer of snow on the ground and 15-20 mph wind. As I pulled my trail cam card out I was having some second thoughts about hunting that evening. As I stood at the base of my tree looking at the picture I quickly saw that I needed to get into the stand. At about 530 I saw a deer moving toward me through the woods. I soon realized it was the buck I was after. After a 20 yard shot and a tracking job I had my hands on a 165 inch buck.

It was only 15 degrees out, but he stuck it out to catch 3 large chain pickerel. Cooper has been fishing with me in New York for the last 3 years and this was one of the few game fish that he had not caught. — Ricbme

Six-year-old Cole Horn took this 10.5-inch long beard during youth weekend 2013 in Kentucky.
On January 31, 2014 at dusk I caught a female walleye on a tip-up fishing for northern pike on gull lake. The fish weighed in at 11 lbs 29" 19" girth. Gull lake is not known for walleye in fact, very few if any are caught in gull lake each year. What a surprise! I am Ryan Johnson from hickory corners michigan and excited to share this epic catch with you all.

G&F reader Bruce Bell sent in this photo of his son Ryan who shot his first limit of ducks on the Feb 1st youth hunt at the Lonesome Mallard Duck Club in Gustine, CA.
On the opening day of the Indiana Youth Turkey Season (4-20-2013), Layton Mygrant age-11 was successful by harvesting a fine gobbler in Pulaski County, Indiana. His father, Tom Mygrant was present with him during the hunt and is in the photo as well. Tom and Layton reside in Galveston, Indiana. The gobbler sported a 10 inch beard, weighed 22 lbs. with ¾ inch spurs. The bird was called into the decoy set-up at 9:30 a.m. The bird strutted and gobbled all the way in.
With a round of applause from the announcer's table, 15-year old Tyler Schaefer of Cleveland pulled up the largest fish at the German-Jefferson Sportsmen's Club annual ice fishing contest, held on West Lake Jefferson Sunday afternoon. Schaefer had to reach down into the hole to pull out the 6-pound, 4-ounce northern pike after it spit out the hook. He won $100 for his effort.
