Default Large unit down

Disclaimer- this buck came off of a high fence ranch in East Texas. If you disagree with it then move on.

Now that is over, I had a ball at High Roller Hunting with great friends this weekend. After two sits I was able to connect with my personal best buck. I could of shot much bigger but I like the typical frame deer and passed on numerous other there after seeing him the first morning but not getting a shot. Saturday afternoon he came in and again no shot was presented so I watched him walk away. An hour later I saw him coming down the trail behind the blind and I was able to get situated for a shot and took advantage. I was able to watch him fall insight after a well placed arrow.

Stud! Love those huge high fenced bucks. Little tip... get you a cape from a 250lb south Texas buck and mount those horns, the mount will look amazing.

Congrats OP. Nothing wrong with that deer. I think panties get in a wad when people present it as otherwise or under vague pretense. Regardless you presented it in a genuine manner so let some haters hate

Mount as is IMO.

I think that’s a bunch of BS. There is no way that deer scores over 374 2/8.
