Who was arguing score? I said it sounded like a world record by the way you described it. Most would take that as a compliment.

This latest story is a little hard to believe lol. Admit it, if we were all sitting around a campfire, and someone told you they saw an 8x8 with 12 inch g5's, you would rib them about it

Never seen a deer with 6" brows? I have one mounted where one is just shy of 6 the other is over 7. It's not all that uncommon on big bucks.

If I had to guess, I'm assuming he's referring to the 8x8

Gar guy has seen deer on public land most people pay to see inside a high fence. That's the whole reason he started this thread was to share some knowledge.

Fact.

I have been on his places and seen some of the deer killed this year.

The fact that he gets on this many mature deer (whatever the score) in the area he hunts is incredible to me since I have spent 25 years pursuing mature bucks in generally the same area

I have opened this thread for the first time this afternoon, and except for eating supper, read it straight through. I am simply amazed at three things.

First: The obvious expertise of a guy that actually hunts for deer ( with the pile of racks and the pics to prove it )

Second: The unselfishness to share his methods with total strangers and sharing his blind with youngsters

Third: The unmitigated stupidity of some of these keyboard cowboys who probably can't tell a mature buck from a jack@ss.

I have no doubt that garguy saw the buck that he described. Could his g5s been 11 and not 12 inches yeah.. hell they could have been 13. Until you get that deer on the ground you cant get an exact number but he has backed up every story he has told with pictures if he has them. I have not seen a single person who knows him ever say anything short of great things about him, and there's more than a couple on here that do. Why dispute what he has to say there is no precedence for it. Who cares if its hard to believe, I would imagine if you had dedicated your whole life to hunting and spent the time that he does you would probably see some things that would blow your mind as well.

This last story is pretty hard to believe. I mean to dream up a deer that big is almost pure insanity. Kind of like a giant 13pt that traveled several miles and ended up getting killed in a different county than the one that another TBH'r was hunting. Or an 80 year old man killing a ~180" deer way into December in Leon Co. Even an impossibly big typical that's life was spared due to a X bow malfunction and killed a week later almost 20mi always by a little girl during youth season. Especially ~230" non-typical that dropped his horns in December and the sheds were later found an mounted... All of those "unreal" stories have been proven in this thread if you care to read and look.

I also heard the story a few times in person about this giant 8x8 with unbelievable trash. I heard it well after Steve and I had become good friends. I didn't believe it the first time, and still have a hard time grabbing ahold of it. At least until I hear Steve's dad tell the story totally unprovoked.

There isn't a reasonable man on the planet that could look David Barclay in the eye after knowing him for any length of time and call him a liar.

Was this deer a 230-250" typical with ~40" of extras? I have no idea. I've never seen the picture. What I know is when a man that's killed a 180+ and has a son that's killed a 180+, and has a son in law that's killed a 190+ shakes his head and says, "He was the biggest deer I could ever dream of." There's reason to believe this deer was incredible. I'm not going to debate a score on a deer that I didn't see, I'm going to try and picture this deer in my own mind.

It's amazing that when someone jiggles the light switch cockroaches swarm. When the Internet becomes your life... Publicly being an *** to make people like themselves laugh and poke to make themselves feel like a bad ***... That's sad.

I for one enjoy the stories. I've enjoyed being a part of several that have been written. I look forward to being a part of ones that will be written in the future.

Or an 80 year old man killing a ~180" deer way into December in Leon Co. Even an impossibly big typical that's life was spared due to a X bow malfunction and killed a week later almost 20mi always by a little girl during youth season. Especially ~230" non-typical that dropped his horns in December and the sheds were later found an mounted... All of those "unreal" stories have been proven in this thread if you care to read and look.

I also heard the story a few times in person about this giant 8x8 with unbelievable trash. I heard it well after Steve and I had become good friends. I didn't believe it the first time, and still have a hard time grabbing ahold of it. At least until I hear Steve's dad tell the story totally unprovoked.

There isn't a reasonable man on the planet that could look David Barclay in the eye after knowing him for any length of time and call him a liar.

Was this deer a 230-250" typical with ~40" of extras? I have no idea. I've never seen the picture. What I know is when a man that's killed a 180+ and has a son that's killed a 180+, and has a son in law that's killed a 190+ shakes his head and says, "He was the biggest deer I could ever dream of." There's reason to believe this deer was incredible. I'm not going to debate a score on a deer that I didn't see, I'm going to try and picture this deer in my own mind.

It's amazing that when someone jiggles the light switch cockroaches swarm. When the Internet becomes your life... Publicly being an *** to make people like themselves laugh and poke to make themselves feel like a bad ***... That's sad.

I for one enjoy the stories. I've enjoyed being a part of several that have been written. I look forward to being a part of ones that will be written in the future.
Aren't you contradicting yourself? I'm not trying to troll here, just making an observation. You, and a few others here, basically consider it blasphemous to even question the legitimacy of the claim made by GarGuy. And yet, in your own post, you state twice that you yourself did not believe him the first time he told you the story. This is after you had made friends with him and at least had that benefit, as most of us have never met Steve Barclay. Tell me what the difference is between you doubting that your friend is telling the truth and some of us doubting that a complete stranger is telling the truth.

You are being a troll and you know it, but I'll bite. The difference is I didn't publicly call him out behind the protection of a computer screen. I couldn't possibly care less if you believe anyone or not. What I don't like is a group of trolls that have followed this thread from the beginning with no other intentions except for what they're doing right now, and you are one of them.

It's the complete lack of respect that's running ramped amongst you guys that blows my mind. Maybe if y'all had grown up here instead of closer to those big cities you would have been taught a little more about respect. Either by your parents, or by someone you popped off to. Too late for the first part, I'd like to be around when the second part happens. Here's the bet though... I bet you $100 to a hole in a donut that none of you Heroes would act the way you do here when you're face to face. That is all, go back under your bridge and wait on a billy goat.

If you have spent any time on here and gotten to know gar guy like I do, you would believe this story to being very close to if not exactly accurate. If you don't know him like I do, then didn't your momma teach you to keep your mouth shut? If she didnt, I'm surprised another man never has.

And you know how well I know gar guy....well I've never met him in person, never talked to him on the phone, only been on here long enough to know that I believe him to be an honest man who is very generous. Would you believe it if I told you he went to help unstick another tbh'er, stuck his truck, and tractor or had to go get a tractor to get the guy on tbh, and himself, it took all day, and he didn't accept any payment. Well he did. Call him a liar about that. Brutal
