Buck taken in Menard Saturday morning. This is the buck that I mentioned previously and since it was posted on facebook, I feel that I can repost. Buck killed by Kurt Bryan with a crossbow on a low fence Menard County ranch, no aggressive feeding program. I think that this shows the good winter and spring that we had along with allowing the bucks to get a little age.
Buck is quite a bit larger than it appears as I snapped this shot on my phone shortly after recovery. No set up shot and Kurt is a big boy, I am guessing he weighs over 250. I did not have a tape but guessing the buck scores 155+ for a main frame 8 point.
Adios,
gary

Great buck!


Don't pass the first day of the season what you'd be happy to shoot the last day of the season.

Kurt iis a big boy, I am guessing he weighs over 250


scratch ( not a science yet, working on it... )
Example : back in the day, @ 5' 7" with 28" waist...
5× 20 = 100 + 7 + 28 = 135 . 5# off my weight of 140...
@ 60 5' 7" with 31" wast.
5×30=150 + 7+31= 188#'s cheers pretty close using tape method..
Yet scale tis way more accurate...
& judging rack size without tape, scratch A-B cup, somewere in that range.
considering its LF

Maybe this will give you a better look at main beams which were over 24" and how he carried his mass really well.
Hoping everyone has a safe and great season!

No doubt!!!

Easily mid to upper 40s as an 8 plus the small G4s and kicker.
STUD!!

I rough scored him at an even 150 on the 8 point frame before adding other extras. One 4th was an inch in length, other was not scoreable. He also had a boost on his brows one was 7 and the other 8 which you really can't see in the photos. I moved to Menard County in December of 1985 and when I saw this buck nearly about two months ago, I posted that I thought that I had seen the largest framed buck I had ever seen in Menard County not under HF. It is good to see that at age 67, my vision on a buck running at 125 yards is still pretty good.
Now my hunters on this ranch are sure that they have seen a couple bigger...hope they have.
Adios.
Gary
