Out of pure curiosity, because I have never been a trophy hunter……what does the whitetail in your last photo score?

I haven’t really looked and tried to really score him, but a rough guess is 140. He’s my target this year. He’s 7 + now

Incrementally, 140, 150, 160, etc., on and on, a lower percentage of bucks make each class as according to a few of the whitetail pubs (like QDMA), your average, typical whitetail buck seldom exceeds 130 inches with many not even getting there.  Theres a good number of matures out there that sit right at 125ish.  A 130, 135 buck on the hoof is always impressive.

Mature is the key word, score being secondary imho.

Ive got a 6 1/2 yr old that didnt even get to 130 but he was 21 wide, 22in mains, short points, huge fat body delicious buck, layers and layers of fat.

Yup! Most people don’t realize how many whitetail bucks will never exceed 130 it’s a lot! There’s almost a perfect storm to have a 160 plus whitetail . Starts that it has to have the genetics to grow that, then it needs to get to 5 plus years old which is super tough with hunting and predators .

Everyone always says "That was a 170" whitetail!  Yeah, take another bong hit.

Thanks again for sharing these pics, they are awesome.

That buck pictured above has almost not changed a single bit in 3 consecutive seasons. It appears this year that he seems to added some mass on his beams, but some tines could be slightly shorter.

I’ve had quite a few like that over the years. I have killed a few of them as well. I remember a time when I used believe that every buck could eventually grow to 150” if he could just live to maturity. It took 100’s of thousands of trail cam pics over 10-15 years before I realized deer are like dudes in that respect…some win the genetic lottery and get to the NFL but most don’t.  :chuckle:

trace salt from north 40 or tractor supply
Is that the loose stuff or the 50# block??  If loose, do you bury it or just dump on the ground?
Loose is the best option in my opinion.  With blocks the elk, moose and bears will roll the block away and it will no longer be in front of your camera.  With the loose salt the animals step on it and pound it into the ground making a great mineral lick for years to come.  I have some that started as flat ground and are now 3-4' deep.


How much of a #50 bag do you initially put down when setting up a camera?
