Got a call yesterday morning from a friend who hunts a ranch south of Menard that I oversee. He had shot a buck with a crossbow and after a description of how the buck reacted I knew he was hit too far back. Steve and I waited 30 minutes and then we drove down to look the situation over before I called Cody Weir to bring in his dogs. Dogs were not needed as we found the buck about 100 yards away.
I did not score the buck but feel he will score approximately 160 gross B&C which is a monster for a low fenced, no aggressive feed program buck in Menard County. The buck is basically an 8 point with extra trash, I am guessing 5 1/2" bases and carried the mass all the way out and again guessing 24" main beams. I have photos of the buck but as a courtesy to the hunter, I will not post without his permission.
Adios,
Gary

160" is a big deer for Menard.
I hope you get permission for a picture

Great deer indeed.....for ANYWHERE!
Get his permission to post a pic! If not, blurr the hunter out of the pic so you can post it.

I love that country and around menard and eden and would love to find a 1500-2000 acre place that I could lease for my family and my cousin's.


High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

He looked good in velvet too this summer. He also added about 10" in tine length, 6-8" in mass, and the extra kickers from last year. I've had countless opportunities to take him with my bow for a couple years now. Congrats to Kurt, he's a hell of a buck.

Thats a great low fence deer for that area. I dont see how he gets to 160" but maybe I'm off somewhere? Not saying hes not. Have his measurements?

Tend to agree here, very nice buck nonetheless
