This buck was taken with a rifle, on a ranch that borders the King Ranch.
It scores in the 290's.

Yeah, they seem to get whacked pretty quick ... the racks, that is!

I used to get away with posting stuff like that. I think I got kicked out of the clique!

I believe this deer was actually shot on a ranch near Fredericksburg... I saw it on the book of faces last week I think.

I don’t understand your tactics. Fredricksburg or near King Ranch.
Why was it important to make that part up?
Guessing I’m missing the point.
Awesome deer but troll like threads seem like an “arseclown” move.

I guess you missed the first thread.
It got stupid, because many "men" were to opinionated about the deer, and the ranch, and made way too many assumptions. It got stupid and the moderators deleted the entire thread. If I didn't give any information on the deer, speculators would turn this into less of a thread, like maybe a 271" thread. False information might keep the superior hunters at bay.

Like Mexico said, this deer is not in the budget of most hunters. Others claimed that it was not ethical, without knowing ANY details of the hunt.

I like to see big deer, and I thought just about everyone else on this forum did too.

Assumptions? Not real men! They'd never do that nor would they continue to ride one of those assumptions for way too long and make idiots of themselves

Wait...maybe some would

Nice buck, thanks for reposting I missed it the first time around

Wholly Molly! Huge by most standards! it does not matter if that deer came out of a 10'x10' pen, it is still huge. You might disagree with the way it was taken or where it was taken but you cannot deny it is a MONSTER!

Exactly! Thought this was a hunting forum? If someone wants to go kill a deer like this on a ranch like that, doesn't bother me at all. But to me it's not a hunt. (Artificially influenced genetics with a game proof fence designed to keep the deee from leaving.)

I'm just too jealous and poor to hunt like that. Because of course the best counter argument is to attack the person. Everyone knows that.
