I have not. I could have last year and have at least 3 or 4 regular bucks over 135" coming to the same stands this year. But I will not shoot them. I plan to try and sell them. That or wait until they reach 180" then I will shoot myself.

Well as you can tell it's not that easy 130" deer don't grow on trees and they dang sure don't walk right out in front of a bow hunter at 25 yards all season long so I think if you can get close enough to a mature whitetail buck no matter the score you have done something you also have to hunt where they are for a better opportunity not every place can produce that big of bucks in low fence natural habitat with some protein feeding by us hunters that's just the way it is .. So congrats to all those that have been fortunate enough to take such beautiful and majestic animals and for those who haven't keep trying and one day your time will come good luck and good hunting this up and coming season boys and girls keep the pictures coming 👍😬

I killed my first in bow season of 2011, was an 8 point from Jefferson County that scored 148" and change.

That same year I shot my second one on a ranch in Webb/Dimmit Counties, it scored 140"

In 2015 I killed this one again in Jefferson County and he went 136"

Later that same year I killed this one on the same property in Webb and Dimmit Counties and he went 133-135"

This past season, again in Jefferson County I shot this one, who is currently my personal best and he went 157" and change.


I have shot several deer since that first big 8, that would score between 133-120 on buddies big properties down in South Texas. 2011-2016 for me were pretty lucky hunting seasons when it came to killing big mature lowfenced deer with the bow.

Have a bunch of pics of a nice 12 point, standing 6x6 that I wouldn't shoot because I could not get him to 160 on the hoof as that was my goal... that is one deer that I'm still kickin' myself in the butt for not shooting... He could have been on this list too... Probably have video of at least a dozen others that I chose to shoot with a camera instead of my bow... but this one, I sure wish I'd have shot...

Then 142 in 2015 with bow

Then last season, right at 135 with a bow

Here is the story I posted on a big 8 that went 145 and some pics of a 10 that went 154.
http://discussions.texasbowhunter.co...d.php?t=508160
These are my latest two. All of mine are low fence bucks. Photobucket doesnt host the pics anymore so here are a few that went with the story.
