Coming in 5th place is this great shot that Taylor Albrecht took through his spotting scope using a phoneskope adapter. Taylor is a guide who is always out looking for big bucks. He found this giant rutting some does down in southern Utah and was able to get this cool shot.

Kelly overcame his fear of heigths to bag this great shot, 4th place in our contest. Kelly is an avid hunter who videotapes hunts hunters. Back in January, following local outfitter Jared Higgins they tracked this cagy tom to this southern Utah cliffs and got this amazing shot despite Kelly's fear of heights.

This is one cute shot. In third place is four year old Morgan Stewart. Morgan got all dressed up for Halloween this year. Went to his grandpa's house and quickly made friends with the local deer. Check out this nice buck that came to get his treat, a tasty apple. This Halloween will always be remember as the time Morgan made friends with another trick or treater.

Our runner up was my favorite this year of this bald eagle that Shay Jolley found while on a family drive up Kolob Mountain. Shay will often take his wife and kids along as he pursues his hobby of photographing wildlife. Shay says, the big bird allowed the kids to get their binoculars out and take a look at our symbol of American freedom.

But our Best of the year snapshot as voted on my you the viewer is this once in a lifetime shot of a grizzly mother and her sow that Ryan took while vacationing in Teton National Park. Ryan watched this timid and nervous cub gain confidence from it's mother who was continuously trying to assure it that is was safe to cross the river. Ryan's snapshot garnered over 500 likes on our Facebook page and now Ryan takes home our grand prize of the year. A Camp Chef pellet grill as he just won, the snapshot of the year!
