If you dont think that deer wiil go over 150 you might be drunk. Giant deer and should be better next year.

24”beams, 22”wide”, 30”mass. That’s 100” frame. 20”brows, 40” on the g2’s and threes, close to 10” on the kickers, g4’s and g5. 170+

Well, looks like he will be 6 on his right and 4 on his left, course the junk he has. Can’t tell, but I think it could be considered a drop on his left base, probably just one of the kickers though. Name:  IMG_0684.jpg

We only have three this year. I’ll post pics when I get a chance. We started managing in 2009, brought 5 TTT bucks, 15 TTT does from various ranches. Long story short, not happy with the quality of animals we got, oh well, it happens. I “HEAVILY” managed since 2010, had some bad drought years that killed off our numbers and recruitment. So, basically kinda started over, we have some phenomenal 2-4 yr olds now, killed some nice deer the past few years. Gonna be fun watching some of these bucks grow up.

The industry defiantly went through a period of transition where the were a lot of people buying what they thought were high power genetics only to be disappointed. Thanks for posting, look forward to seeing the progress.

We were trying to just add some new genetics to the ranch, my goal was to grow them on he ranch by managing, we did a decent job but you just can’t compete with other ranches that way. We are not a commercial place but try to sell a few hunts here and there. (Moderators please don’t kill this thread cause of this comment) We just try to pay for the feed. Next few years are going to be interesting.

I think his left brow tine is longer than any of his other tines and his other tines are not short!

Found his right side, figured he would almost match on the other side, with a 22inch inside spread, scores 167.

Well, I guess this guy got lucky for one more year, he broke his left beam off already, I was really looking forward to taking him this year. I think he was going to be a very once in a lifetime buck with those brow tines. Name:  IMG_2344.jpg

Just FYI, date and time are not correct. New camera, checked it today and it was full of water, still not sure why it changed the date.
