Any of you guys killed a 150+ 8 point? Would love to see an example of one.

Low fence 8pt....151 2/8".

Here's one a member killed on our lease in 2015.
We have been watching this buck since 2012.
I named him HighRack in 2014.
He has always been an 8pt but was making decent jumps every year. We were just hoping he would get to 140" at some time.
He was a teens deer in 2013 at best. 2014 he was in the upper 120's area. And he blew up in 2015 at 7.5 years old.

We scored him at camp at 151 3/8".
He was officially scored for Texas Big Game Awards at
151 2/8".
Heck of a buck. We are very proud of this joker.

Both of these bucks had a small extra NT kicker making them score as 9's. The first buck is around 151" + or - gross as an 8 pt frame not including the small 1" plus kicker. The other buck gross around 163 or 164 as an 8 pt and he had a 2"+ base point.

Thanks. I am a huge fan of main frame 8's that gross over 140. I really like high-beam long-tined 8's like yours.

This 8 scored 146 and some change. Over 26" beams, 36"s of mass and 23 1/2" inside spread. Another inch on each tine would have got him there. His son is 5 1/2 this year and hangs out at the same stand. Hoping one day he makes 150 as an 8 point.

182 3/8. OK so he has a couple of forks and a drop. But still mainframe 8.

Low fence if that really matters,
native genetics for those that care
Generic feed..I'm being sensitive

Got lucky and killed a pretty good one a couple of years ago. Had a small G4 that just barely made him a 9 that he waited until the last minute to put on the end of his mainbeam. 162" even when scored as an 8.....

Almost made 150", but since he was from Nacogdoches county in east Texas, that should be close enough. He scored 148 0/8".

Feed from the cattleman's association Piedras Negras. Bag doesn't even have a name on it.20% protein. Most of the feeds have essentially the same ingredients just different marketing. That said , you can add formulas that increase quality if you are willing to pay the price.
