When I think of legendary bucks I think of one and only one. Some on here have seen pictures of this buck, we’ve never had bucks scored or measured but I have told a few stories of the fella who killed it because he killed many, later he became a Game Warden in Alaska. Gabe was over 6’5 tall and weighed over 270 lbs. the picture is of Gabe standing next to the buck hanging on the ridge pole, a non typical that made this huge man look like a 12 year old. One of the biggest bucks I have ever seen.

Saw some pictures of a Mission unit buck that scored well over 200" a while ago... I think there is a picture at Hooked On Toys in Wenatchee of some of that buck's sheds that got put on a shoulder mount. Can't remember the exact story on it, but I'm sure they'll know what you're talking about if you mention it.
There is also another set of sheds from the same unit that go 218" typical. They are at a Taxidermist shop near you.

Anyone have a pic of the pogue buck from 15+\- years ago. Looked like a damn moose. Super paddled antlers.

Can't remember ever hearing or seeing about a buck like that in the Pogue. There was "moosey" from the Entiat back 10ish years ago though......

It was shot by a conconully resident who was a logger if I remember the story correctly. I wanna say it grossed 215” non typical. I went to the puyallup sportsman’s show to see it in person. Really cool buck

Here's the moosey I know.  Not my buck, but plenty of pics on here before and after he was shot.  He was very photogenic.

When I think of legendary bucks I think of bigger than big and notoriety.  Lots of nice bucks killed will never be legendary in my mind anyways.

I cannot for the life of me find an image of it but the Ward buck killed in Yakima by Robert Ward in 1936 is one that sticks in my mind. Robert was a relative of a coworker of mine.  The buck made the Eastmans deer tour and is one of the largest NT mule deer ever taken in WA state at a staggering 263 1/8"!


I agree on the legendary status.

but,

Anybody can spot a monster buck, even from a distance and proceed to kill it. (Huge antlers are easy to see, lol)

Just having fun here so dont ya'll get your panties in a bunch.

THIS is a legendary WA buck. #1 in the Bausch & Laumb club.

It takes some quality time behind the glass, and some skill, to verify that a buck of this caliber is indeed legal when its 250 yards away. (Hence the founded at that time Bausch&Laumb club was born)  :chuckle: :chuckle:

Disclaimer for the web po po: Legally killed before there were any antler restrictions when I was a much younger lad.

Man, this thread rocks.  Some great bucks taken in the past... thanks a lot for posting those pics.  I'm sure there are a few more still out there in pockets  like the tripod buck, but I've got to think with mule deer herd decline that this overall caliber is just not as possible as it used to be.  We can still dream though!

That is a handsome buck, but that's not the one. I did see a buck with a frame like that last year in our neck of the woods. Massive typical 4. :tup: :drool: Honestly, looks almost identical to him. Probably same blood.
