I think this buck is deceptive I知 betting his mass and frame will put him at that 185-190 range maybe I知 wrong but I知 betting he will surprise you.
minus 20 inches and your dead on.  ;)

I知 not great at guessing scores but fighting over this bucks score kinda takes away from his 努ow factor. Let痴 let Ty have his moment to enjoy it and I知 sure he will come back and post up a score later on

I agree 100%. Relegating this thread and buck down to score is not doing his effort and how cool that buck is any justice.

Back on topic. Awesome buck. Really awesome hunt. So glad we got to follow along. The amount of bucks you saw and passed is just crazy.

This buck seems like one that was a no brainer after all the hunting you did and bucks you saw. I feel like it was a no brainer. I知 not sure I could have passed some of the bucks you did and I know there is no way I would have passed this one. As soon as I saw the photo I thought shooter. Inches never entered my minder. Shooter is all I thought.

Congrats on a great buck and thank you so much for sharing so much of the hunt.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

I have to ask, what was the body size like on this deer compared to other deer you looked at? Also, what kind of condition was he in? Much fat left on him?
I hunt, therefore I am.... I fish, therefore I lie.

Thanks everyone! It was awesome all the help and support I got on this thread. I met a lot of awesome people along the way. Steve was the one who really made the wheels turn on this hunt and I was fortunate to get hooked up with him on this site.

As far as the buck goes, DeadeyeTy did in fact shoot him in the eye :chuckle: Luckily the cape still looked great. Ive always wanted a wall pedestal mount and I think he値l look great on it!

2MANY- That痴 awesome that you heard about that! I don稚 go in there all that often but everytime I have she hasn稚 been working. If you know who it was that sold me the tickets I hope you will tell her thank you for me until I finally catch up with her!

MASHER!
In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.

I had been telling people it was lead poisoning.

Now your handle here makes a lot more sense! :chuckle:

WOW, this was addicting as the Bobcat thread.. i literally read from the beginning word for word...  Incredible freaking hunt man... Holding out during the MuleDeer rut is the hardest thing, they all look big especially when you hunt blacktails.    Incredible whopper of a buck, i wouldnt even tell us the score, keep it to yourself.. Scores ruin hunts and make people brain dead takes away from what its all about..   its scored heavy as hell and big...  Wall hanger...  :tup: :IBCOOL:
Their going down!!!
