Congrats to the neighbor.

Nice deer.

You are 9,000 acres. Stop crying.

Or go hunt a HF ranch.

Good Lord.

I congratulated the hunter who took him and stated it is part of hunting a LF ranch - sorry you took it differently

That's the breaks, but you realize that and accept it as part of hunting game that is free range and truly wild. Competing against nature and other hunters is part of the challenge that makes the victories all the sweeter. Hats off to you, and congratulations to who ever bagged that great deer.


An unethical shot is one you take, that you know you shouldn't.

It happens
I didn’t see where he was crying
I don’t have anything against hunting in high fence good luck and have fun but I prefer low fence and that’s the chance you take when hunters let bucks of that caliber walk you just have to hope a few fall through the cracks and make it another year or 2

Not sure why a 5 year old deer like that would be on a no kill list but never less it is the breaks.
We hunt a big ranch and have a nothing under 5 yo rule. Lots of deer we see get killed on neighbors that runs a big commercial operation.
Come rut time those big bucks travel a lot.

we let our deer get to age 6 or older - we know we lose some but the ones we don't lose are worth the wait

When you're low fence about the only thing you can do is feed the hell out of the place in hopes of them not wandering far. Once the rut starts all bets are off!


Yes! A Weatherby does kill them deader.

And even then you never know what a buck will do. In one radio tracking study one buck would make a trip yearly to a place about 30 miles away and back, if done during season that could be a lot of hunters to avoid.

tlk , good job for congratulating the hunter that I am sure is very proud of that buck as just about any of us would be, but your place has its rules and they are working for you. There is a mortality rate that happens be it vehicular, hunters on neighboring laces, fights with other bucks, getting too worn down from the rut, predators..... when we let a buck go we know there is a chance we will never see them alive but is a choice we make knowing that.

Wish I had a place next to you! I’d be happy to work with a fellow landowner who wanted to let deer get to 6-7.

Absolutely. Ours have to be 7.5 and we don’t stray from that just because a deer is big or a neighbor “might” shoot them. Once you start down that road you start to jeopardize all your hard work. This means this year we have an almost 210” typical 5yr old that is being passed until at least 7 and not one member mad about it

But I thought I had seen fellows on here saying the fence height made no difference whatsoever. Bet the neighbor that shot him is thankful that y'alls is not 8' high. He is a TRUE trophy.


City life is no life for a country man; for such a man that life is a kind of damnation in itself.

Passing deer of that caliber is remarkable. Y’all definitely have one of the best low fence places in the state
