I have been watching this 11 point for several months now on the trail cameras and I finally had a chance to see him in person Saturday morning. He definitely looks a lot larger in person and was very impressed by the size of his rack while watching him feed. He is the oldest and largest bodied deer I've ever seen on the hoof. Due to size of his body it is a bit difficult to judge his rack. I posted a dropbox link below with a video of him. Please let me know your thoughts.

As good as it gets!

I doubt next year he'll be that good. Better make hay while the sun's shinin'! wink

Healthy buck for sure and looks mature to me. Hard to say on score (video would not work for me) - in the last two still pics he looks 160 range. A good straight on picture would help. Lack of mass may hurt score a little but a very beautiful deer!

That's a great buck right there!


When he was young, I told Dale Jr. that hunting and racing are a lot alike. Holding that steering wheel and holding that rifle both mean you better be responsible.

Text book STX 7.5

Upper 40’s maybe low 50’s

Great frame, but his weak g1’s basically make him a big 8 score wise

Beautiful deer

I'd say he's a solid 6.5 year old. Love everything about him except his G1's. Agree that this will be as good as he gets. Low 150's, but could go higher if he has more mass and swells when you ground check him b/c he's such a bruiser and rack could be undervalued on the hoof b/c of body size. Great deer.

I wish our would eat cotton seed...I've tried to get them going on it post rut the past 2 years and they haven't touched it. We have a mill I can buy bulk within 45 minutes. I might give it one last try as this year is drier than the previous 2.

Upper 140s, beams help but mass doesn't carry and overall tine-length is somewhat average. Age is plenty, I don't think he's going to jump much if any, given another year. I would have shot him in a heartbeat.

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