This observation was only low fence pastures, now on our HF place we've grown some giant 8's

Kind o like putting a bolt through the head of cattle that cant get away so you can have a high dollar steak, or burger? Dude, you are on a hunting site. If it is an ethical kill the size of the place is their business.

Your comments are out of line.

First of all you have to distinguish this 8 from other 150 class deer- average hunter will only pay *** amount for a 150 but that guy that needs a 150+ 8 for his collection will pay significantly higher as true 150+ 8's are very rare.

Me and my son hunted this deer on 160 acres HF. he hunted 32 different times out there to find this deer. It was the hardest deer he ever had to hunt, and we hunt 600+ acres in San Saba , low fence and it's soo much easier to kill a deer out there. I'd hunt the high fenced place again any day if the opportunity was giving.

I find it disgusting that a fellow hunter would come on a public forum and run his mouth about his dissatisfaction of legal a method of harvest.
You are part of the problem if your not willing to protect the institution in every available form while we still have it. Freedom is tough isn't it.

Didnít ask for your opinion either. This is a wooded place with all native deer. No pen raised. If itís not for you then itís not for you. Itís still putting meat in the freezer as well as getting a trophy.

We have them but they are far from everywhere. 1 a year would be doing **** good and in top 5% of LF ranches I would imagine. They are also considered trophies at that size

A 8 point 150" deer is worth $4500-$5000.

10 2 4 Ranch in Commerce is 2k acres high fence and incredible accommodations. I was there this weekend and they are selling clean 8s and 10s in 150 to 160 range for 2k.

Ask for Lindsey if you call.

I had a buddy that got bored of shooting deer. He took high quality photos of really nice deer from the blind instead. Many years shot a pic of the biggest deer taken. In a way it's the same. Enjoying the outdoors and hunting, experiencing nice deer. You might consider that for free. Just a thought.

It's worth whatever you can get someone to pay for it. Don't listen to the haters.

I agree. As a lover of big 8 points I would be willing to pay more for a legitimate slick 150" 8 than a normal buck of the same size. Just need to find the right hunter.
