I think I've seen this pic before possibly last year. I think they were debating if it had been photoshopped or not. If its real its a monster.

"Yes, it is a legitimate buck. I mean, we are a high-fence operation, I want to be clear about that, but this is a real buck. It was taken last September and weighed 420 pounds live-weight. The heaviest deer that's ever been shot on our place. Our client hunted this deer for 11 days. We'd had very warm weather and this buck just would leave his bed in a cedar swamp during the day. But it finally cooled off, and the hunter caught the buck making its way from the swamp to a food plot. He was so pumped, he just went nuts. He was kissing the deer."

I actually now the hunter, he is from PA. I guided him one year the year he had killed the buck about 5 yrs ago. He live weighted 408 lbs and scored around 210 gross. Was killed in Wisconsin also. This buck had 54" or 57" of mass also.

To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

Nice... Now I wonder how many sacks of sausage that bad boy will make?


I Feed Indian Corn. The deer love it and all the colors make them stay at the feeder longer.

Born and raised in the pasture(it was HF). They do many acres food plots on this place, that are around the edges of a very large swamp area.

Yes the guy in the picture showed me his video of this buck and then others he has seen there.

This guy also hunts on a very large ranch in South Texas and has taken some really big deer there also.

stx, the Flees brothers were deer breeders long before they were selling hunts. Obviously they've put some of those genetics in their pasture. Sounds like their pasture bucks are offspring off some of the original stockers. Any idea how many acres comprise their hunting area?

Yes, I know they were. They had 2 hunting areas at that time when he shot that buck and not sure of the sizes though. I know this one had a swamp in it that was jungle thick. The pasture he hunted was HF then stocked with does and some bucks from the pens. All the native deer were left IIRC also. Tags were left in the does and young bucks stocked orginally and then a few young bucks were added each year for a while with tags left in. This buck was one born in the pasture and no tags. I think they only used food plots to supplement with IIRC. IIRC this buck was only a 4yr old also.
