That is an AMAZING buck. I'd like to even see one of that caliber. Congrats to the hunter. I'd like to hear the story of the hunt.

I think Dale and the Mod's have done a good job with their education and reformatting of  HuntWa.  :tup: This thread would have gone so sideways only a month ago it would already have been locked.

That is a world class buck that will rank up there with some of the biggest taken in this country this year.

Very nice buck, and a hearty congratulations to the hunter!

That said, it definitely has great mass but I doubt it's nowhere close to as big as some might otherwise believe.  Please understand I don't want to take anything at all away from this person's archery success, but I would be stunned if this fine specimen went over 200". The tape never fibs, but camera lenses all too often do.  ;)  Hopefully he'll bring it by an SCI measuring booth so it can get full credit for all the cool bone it grew and not suffer from the deduction nonsense that some of the other scoring organizations push.

Nets are for fish. That buck is exactly as big as it looks. The only way the deductions take away from that buck are on paper.

I think pictures of this buck circulated the hunting forums within the first hour it was harvested.  Definitely a buck of a lifetime.

Talk about crushing the old record!

What a beautiful buck, I can't even imagine what the hunter was feeling when he put his hands on that monster! It's great that an animal of that class can still be found.
