Yep. That one deer just blew every management system all to hell. All these game ranches taking out spikes, 7 pointers, 8 pointers and the lower end of age classes are just shooting all their future Booners rofl

According to most research IN TEXAS, he would be...and not just the spike part. But still, one deer to destroy all management practices. I am impressed

I love the "quite typical" explosion that happens from 3-4YO where the deer went from an eh looking 8pt to a WOW! looking 11 pt.

That's the part that got me too. Typical? Ain't nothing typical about that bucks life. He's all over the place, only characteristic that stayed year after year was the brows.

Don't really see anything appearance wise that tells me it's for sure the same buck from 1.5 to 2.5, not that I don't believe it. Either way it's a cool read and great post.

He ain't the only one.

Get that when dealing with probablity numbers, and high densities you have can take those chances because you can't feed them all. Something has to give for others to gain.

But I'm sick of the Kerr references that mean nothing. It drives me but when someone posts a 130-150 deer that the are very very proud of(and should be) and state this is why we kill spikes to grow deer like this.... Umm you sure he wasn't a spike at 1.5 years old...
