This buck grossed in the low 180's, 160's as an 8 but had 20"+ of NT points.

This buck grossed mid 160's as an 8 and had an extra 2" NT point. Pictures were taken around a stock tank in early August 2009.

This one here is a NYS buck. 38 miles from NYC, my backyard. We can't feed here. He did this all on his own. Although I didn't get him...my neighbor did. Aged at 7.5 when he was double lunged. He was on his way down in more ways than one. The widest 8 I have ever seen here afield. Not much on tine length, but a heck of a spread.

Not a very good pic, but this giant 8 was killed by a guy on our Mexico lease several years ago.

I've hunted a couple of different ranches in your area. Always heard stories of the giants you were killing when we were checking our guns out at the end of the year, congrats.

guess that is one that you would just have to see in person to get the full picture cause I don't see a camera angle one that could make that deer add up to 183 4/8" just based off of a picture - UNREAL

his beams must be 27"+ - One incredible animal!!

I agree, that picture makes it look like a 150" deer. Excellent 8 point either way

This is off of Wes' (Luck_of_the_Draw) lease he had in Montague Co. Just trail cam pics, the buck was never killed by anyone on the lease.

Wide 8, at around 27" inside. Just over 159 gross as an 8 but he had 13" of base points and kickers you could not see putting him over 173.

Is that the one that caused a ruckus about it getting shot on an unhunted 400-500ac HF family place and then all of a sudden started advertising trophy hunts...or was that a different 8 about that size?
