Same deer about a two weeks apart. We have a disagreement in our camp. How wide do you think he is?

Got any pics with his ears in a normal position? Is that feeder 24" across for width? I will throw 28-29" inside out there with that left beam flaring out based off those pics.

He sure is a wide one, I'd say every bit of 25" inside.

feeder box is 20 inches.
stx, this buck is a legend on our place. We actually think he is in decline. He had longer tines the last two years and even with all the rain is a little shorter this year. Nobody has ever seen him on the hoof. We only have a few daylight pics of him. As far as I know, we don't have a pic with ears extended. We think that's strange.

There is a 32 4/8" bow kill from last weekend on Los Cazadores.

TruTexican, how wide do you think the deer in your photo is?

Based on the bottom pic. I think he's pushing 30. I just hope we get to measure him. That bottom pic is at my feeder. The only feeder we have pics of him this year on the 23rd. I have a couple of night pics of him since.

This isn't professional in any way, but I zoomed in a bit on my screen and measured the feeder then measured his inside spread.

2" = 20" feeder
3 1/4" = Deer spread

So with that being said every inch on my screen is more or less 10 actual inches, I would guess him at 32-33" wide.

That's just broscience though, don't take my word for it.

28" +- 1". Using the feeder won't work.. he is closer than the feeder.


Hunting in magnolia would be better in a gated community.

C'mon guys we gotta hype this buck up! It'll make it all the more exciting when he finally does step out.

I think he is.an inch or two wider than the 8 I'm chasing. I'll say 24.5"
