Megatron has made an appearance in the Pushmataha 2016 thread. He has survived and is even bigger! Welcome back q-all!

Default Megatron. A legend in the making

Well guys I guess it's time for an update!

I hunted mega hard last season and never closed the deal. We saw a few times, just never in the right situation.

We actually did not see him again in November or December . I thought he had possibly died. Not by a hunter though. I would think if someone killed a deer of that caliber I would of heard about it.

During our annual shed hunt in March of this year I scoured our whole place looking for his sheds. I found one but it was from 2014. I pretty much wrote him off at that point.

I got trail cams out later then usual this year. I think it was August 15 and first buck on camera is none other then mega.


This is the only location I have ever captured trail cams of him. It's in our biggest food plot. He has never been captured eating from a feeder. I believe his core area is actually right below our lodge. He is quite difficult to get many pictures of.

This past week I was in Wyoming hunting mule deer. It was the first time I had ever missed opening day in Oklahoma. 3 nights in a row I get his picture from the same camera.


My buddy who hunts our place actually saw him Tuesday night in the food plot as he was driving back in from the other end of the ranch. That tells me he is moving in daylight but in a spot that will be very difficult to kill him with a bow. I am gonna spend some time glassing this field this weekend to try and see where he is coming from. I am Thinking my best chance to get on him will be with a muzzleloader, which opens up October 21.

So I guess the saga continues! Stay tuned ..

No sightings and no recent pictures .. that's pretty typical for him this time of year.. hopefully we will catch him chasing a doe. I am back in Texas till wedsnday when I will head north and hunt the rest of the week.

I did have an eventful weekend.. Friday, hunting with a bow i had an encounter with Rex, the second biggest deer on our farm.. I had him ranged at 39 yards. Put my 40 yard pin on him and let it fly.. he ducked deeper then I have ever seen a buck do and my arrow flew right over his back. I was pretty sick.. first encounter with him ever. Really nice typical 10 , probably 160s.

Here's Rex..
