He didnt go too far Bone, he had ladies with him ;)

You know whats funny, this guy was on my friends property and when we drove past him we came upon a truck and trailer pulled off to the side of the dirt road so I pulled over to talk to them. The trailer and truck had Washington plates and when I went up to the guy he pretended he wasnt watching this buck, which was a 7X5 by the way. They were sitting just over the property line on a 1 mile square block of BLM land and obviously were hoping the buck would cross over so they could drop him. I got my map out, playing dumb, :rolleyes: and asked them if they knew were we were and asked him to point out on the map, he wasnt even close to getting it right but I didnt say anything. I then turned my Excursion around and drove the 1/4 mile back to the buck and his does and grabbed the camera and got out. I walked right up to the deer, about 50 yards and started snapping picks, making sure that I pushed them the other direction, away from those two guys. I'm sure they were not too happy but oh well :chuckle: IT was a guy from Washington and his dad, who actually lives in Montana. I wouldn't be surprised if he is on this site. If you are on here and reading this, this is the buck you were looking at all morning, I know you remember my blue Excursion.

I came accross this photo today and I immediately thought of Bone's "From Behind" thread.  Thought I would add one I thought was decent with two bucks in the background.

GREAT PICTURE Shawn!   Whats this...I come here expecting to see tail and there are three buck pics facing me...don't be hijacking my thread huntnphool.  :)  The last one makes up for it though.  I got a couple more to add from yesterday....not nearly as big as these boys.

so far i havent seen a shot that i wouldnt take. I have taken a couple ass shots before and have dropped them. its amazing how a ballistic tip to the "A" hole will just fold over a several hundred pound animal. it does terrible things to the insides and you have to hurry up and gut them quickly and rinse out as much as the bad stuff as you can. BUT....And i do say butt :) those all if i had seen them during hunting season and had been the only shot i had. I WOULD TAKE IT.....nice pictures man. nice pictures indeed. .....

havent hunted alot of mule deer but everytime a see a good loocking mule deer i think about going the following year.......

maybe i will go scouting for them this comming year...........

Everytime I see this topic resurface I say to myself should I open it or move by very quickly.  I guess the topic "From Behind" scares me a little coming from guys!  :chuckle:

Oh no, we resurrected this thread again?  Ok, I'm game.  Here is a "from behind" of the biggest deer I saw this year.  This is the closest I saw to a 200" deer.  If you want a different view of him I might be temped to post a few others.  There is one of this guy from the front on the old 200" deer thread.  I believe it is a 200" deer gross or really close.  MM Tony is not so sure he quite meets that mark.  You decide.  What do you think he scores?

300mm F2.8 IS.  Amazing lens.  Cropped about 1/6th the originals size.  Gotta love the new digitals.  I've offered to take people there, but they must remain blindfolded the whole trip...lol.

Shawn, from this angle his mains look to be a little short and his tip to tip a bit lacking as well, that being said I think he would be very close. Very nice deep forks and looks to have nice symmetry as well, although his left G2 is much longer than his right, he would be in my cross hairs without question.

that's the kind of buck you shirt first then worry about the score. I'm not sure he's 200"(short looking beams) but he should be atleast 190". pretty awesome looking

Here's the picture from the front.  I think you guys are right.  Somewhere 190-200?

Thanks for resurrecting...feel free to keep doing so and keep posting pictures of great buck guys. 

I'll still get there Pope with you, especially after I get that new lens. ;)
Just have to get it paid for first and quite working all these damn shifts.  We should get some good velvet pics for these guys in August.

I think he is a 190 buck.  I don't think he breaks 200.  Like said by Bluebulls, shoot first ask questions later.

Digitally zoomed and cropped. The thing wouldnt let me get closer that 600 yards. You get the idea.

Going away is a terrible angle to judge an animal, but there are two here that are a no brainer regardless of angle.

Very nice....think that would have been a no-brainer, even maybe for 300 and his tag.  Nice animal and isn't that camera nice for at least focumenting these fellas.   Theres a reason why they don't want you within 600 yards.   Any frontals of him?  VERY NICE!
