HUNTING -- The late season for hunting whitetail bucks in northeastern Washington ends Tuesday, Nov. 19,  as the mating season peaks for the wary deer.

Montana outdoor photographer Jaime Johnson "caught and released" this bruiser Saturday just to help remind us that the big bucks -- gorgeous creatures -- are out there even though they're tough to find -- especially, it seems, when you have a rifle in your hand and a tag in your pocket.
