Been chasing this deer for a couple years now. He's been a ghost during daylight hours. 1st time i had ever seen him on the hoof. Came in chasing a doe and she put the hammer down on him at 80 yds. She's had a grin on her face for 3 days now.

He's only 13" wide so he barely would make anlter restrictions if we were in one of those counties. Aged him at 6 1/2. Last photo is the damage to the shoulder from 110 gr accubond 257 weatheby mag.

He's actually 12 7/8 inside. Here's a better pic of his spread.

Great buck! We have been seeing a buck like that on our "Woods" place--not real wide but old and heavy. My wife likes to hunt too and she too uses a 257 bee most of the time. Congrats to her!!!

None of my business but you should give your wifey more to brag about. When you measure the main beams you measure the widest part. Boone and Crocket estimates the average NM whitetail to have 16 inches between eartips when they are erect/alert. The widest point on hers looks to be 3-5 inches more each side. At a minimum in the field I would call it closer to 22 then 13 though pictures are hard to judge from. Their field guide if you want to read it if it links is below. And it is a great deer.

He is a great deer no matter the spread! I am very excited she got this deer. She had no idea I would let her shoot him. Spread is only one measurement. I can assure we measured him and he is 12 7/8 insife. And the difference between a 13" and 16" deer is only 3 inches in difference in score. I sent him to get shoulder mounted so we can enjoy that memory for years to come.

#1, there isn't a good view of the deer from either directly behind or in front of, so how can you even begin to judge the width? Hope you don't guide for a living.


Op, congrats to your wife on a beautiful buck!
