Default 16 point buck - low fence

11/25/2006. Tilden TX. A day I’ll forever vividly remember. 50 yard frontal shot, bullet never exited, dropped him. Shot with Winchester 30.06 passed down from my grandpa to my dad to me.

Man that’s a great buck! The fact that you shot it with your grandads old rifle makes it really special!

The frontal shot, risky but lethal in my experience. Nice deer.

Not if you can shoot... Frontal, right in the "white spot" DRT every time.
If you're not confident or can't shoot, don't take the shot... Right between the front shoulders will give you the same results, but will gut shoot the deer... For a buck like the OP's, who cares about a gut shot?


Especially at 50 yards.

If you look just a few inches below the white spot on the pic of his shoulder mount, you can actually see where his fur is ruffled from the bullet entry. No way I was giving him the chance to run!

Not that it matters but did you ever score him, be interesting to see. We just bought a small place right out of Tilden. This got me pumped up!

I didn’t score him but I need to. Been meaning to for 14 years now lol

Very jealous about your place. If I ever get the chance to hunt Tilden again, I’ll never let it go. You will see some amazing bucks.

That's a beautiful buck and he will score plenty high. He's hurt on beam length and spread, but good Lord he's got so many G points and serious mass.

That's a lot bigger than anything we ever saw around Tilden. The two placed we hunt around Tilden, I think had been over hunted for years. That's a nice buck.

Thanks! Hate to hear that about Tilden, we had some amazing bucks out there, but it was before the oilfield took over the area. I’ve driven by our old place (off East Old Fowlerton Rd) several times and it’s all high fenced off now. Look at it on google maps and it’s nothing but well pad after well pad now. Was great for oil industry but bad for low fence deer hunting! It was pretty regular to see a 120-140 any given weekend. The weekend before, I missed another buck that looked very similar to this one with the split brow tines, and he was with 3 other monsters well over 18”, one was likely 20”+ wide. Watching those 4 bucks trot out together is a sight I’ll never forget. Couldn’t believe I got redemption the very next weekend with this guy. To this day, I’m still not totally convinced it’s not the same guy - I just don’t remember seeing all the kickers on the one I missed the weekend before. Miss that place!

Thanks! Yes sir, I was only 20. Kinda ruined the rest of my days of “shooting up” lol! However I just got into bow hunting this year and I’m addicted. Got a nice 8 point a couple weeks ago and will start “shooting up” from him!
