All I can say is WOW! Y'all have done some impressive work to build up the genetics on your place.

We are really excited about how the deer herd is coming along. We were blessed with good genetics to start with but the influx of bred does has really made things progress. Been a patient couple of years but we are getting to where we want to be. This guy walked out this evening. Not sure how old or what he was last year but I like him.

He has the look of 180" typical frame without adding him up. Very symmetrical and clean also.

I think you are very close. I put a pen to it and got almost the exact same thing. I think I got 74" up and 107" down. Ha. I'm generally a little bit low on deer when they get to his size so I arm wave and say this is a 185" buck. Hope he lives and we can find both sheds. Would love to get a score on him.

A few more from yesterday evening. It was hot but the wind helped cool it off before sundown. Deer moved very late, after 8:10 when the first deer/younger buck showed up. The droptine buck showed up about 8:15. Bigger buck moved in at 8:25 with very little light left. I was up to 5000 ISO on the last pics. The bucks are really starting to slick of and show their fall hair coats. Definitely won't be long now. Please lord, let it rain soon!

Thanks for taking photos and posting them! Yes it is super dry and has been for most of the year. We need rain but the next best thing is protein, alfalfa and lots of water down the creek. Past that, it is out of our hands.

Love game management. How long have you been on the protein program. How big is place? Highfence?

Great looking deer. Congrats!!

We have been feeding for 14 years. Just under 1,000 acres and yes we are high fenced. Been a lot of fun over the years.

You can't go wrong this year. Quite a few great bucks that could continue to improve your ranch. Have you identified any management deer you are definitely trying to remove?

No we might not shoot any bucks at all. Maybe one or two but nothing of any consequence.
This guy might catch an arrow.
