For those of you that saw my thread earlier about a 13 point know that I was out for that bruiser. That said, I couldn’t pass up this 8 that walked by this morning. He is young, about 3.5, but he is perfect in every way. Weighed 176 off the Defender, and dressed out at 142.

18” inside with 10” G2s, 4.2” bases, and symmetrical to the tenth on both sides.

Thanks guys. Almost passed on him. At one point, he was 15 yards from me just staring at me. I let him sit for almost 20 minutes before I changed my mind. Great deer and best opening weekend yet. Still can’t get over how symmetrical he is

That's a dandy. You see much chasing? I've been covered in deer past 2 days. Just haven't seen my target buck. With any luck your 13pt will head east a couple of miles to my place trout


Life is too short, as is. Don't chance it.

up Great deer. I love those clean 8's specially the ones where they look big from any angle.

Sometimes it's hard being me! But somebody has to do it.

Yeah, a little chasing and a lot of air sniffing. We saw more deer this weekend between all of us than any recent year in memory. Hope you're getting some good sight seeing across town!

By the way, Kenny took in a 24 point nontypical that was beautiful. Some good stuff hanging on the rack. When I took mine in Sunday morning, he said they had 70 deer in for the big buck contest, and I was sitting in third. The nontypical was sitting in first
