Loc: good ole texas
I have 68 acres in NETx. This crazy 8 as i call him is probably one of my more memorable bucks! Ive shot bigger but this deer came from my land! Ive been seeing a good bit of deer but all were super early or super late and never enough light to tell how big or exactly what they were point wise. After putting in a good bit work at my place way later than i had planned i had a pretty good set up, I thought. Have a small food plot and feeder throwing but with all the oaks feeder gets hit by pigs a good bit. I got this neat looking old buck the day before thanksgiving. I had seen some deer that morning and one was narrow and super tall,didnt think he think would make ar's so i let him go. Then a spike came through about 20 min after him. Thinking this might be morning i sat in my pop up and waited. Then i cought some movement to the west of me and it was yote. Busted him and went on and set till about 9:45a. Left there that morning thinking maybe the first deer was wide enough and so on, we all know how that goes. So back in the stand that evening and it had been slow but no big deal everything had been moving late anyhow. At 5 on the nose I looked to my south and that exact time this ole boy had just come out! At first I thought he was a dink but when he walked out of the trees I realized he was way bigger than I jad thought. At that instant like old deer do,he seemed to look right at me. I made the decision then I would take this deer given the chance. I was able to get my rifle up by ducking down in my pop up and when i came into the window hewas in my scope! Never had time to get nervous.He was still staring at me and looked like he was gonna bolt so i steadied my cross hairs on his chest..... BOOM!!!!! He was hit hard, and ran into the trees and i heard him crash!!!! Yessssss,I knew he looked weird through the scope but when I walked up to him was when it set in. I had just busted a Crazy 8 on my land that my Greatfather use to work!!!! If you are looking the deer on his right side there is a spot where it looks to have broken off a big point or another main beam. This is the best pic i have but he looks diff in every pic. He weighed 151.4 pounds. Sorry for the long read hope yall enjoy the pic.

Congrats. It is pretty unusual and should make a neat mount.

Any one can shoot a ten point but no one will ever shoot one that looks like that. I like it, congrats.
