Hard to believe buck

I run cameras 24/7/365. Not all, but 75% of the bucks we take grow up on the farm, they don’t show up.

after hunting this morning we checked cams, this guy showed up

I told my brother to go to this stand this afternoon but he said, he isn’t coming back...
Turns out he never left. Found one of our hot does and stayed.

here’s where it gets weird. My son said let me drive you to the stand in the side by side. I took him up on it.

grabbed my gear out of the back and a doe and fawn walked out in the clover 80 yards away. I told him to run them off so they didn’t see me get on stand. He did and turned around gave me a fist bump on the way by and I started for the stand. A few steps in I look up and he’s bolting across the field after the does. I let one fly, my sons jaw hit the steering wheel and we said “did that just happen”. Deer ran into the timber.

Decision time!

We Didn’t even go look.. I told my son if I hit him we’ll find blood at dark. If I missed and that doe was hot she might come back and bring him.

texted a friend about the whole incident while I was on stand and said Donald Trump has a better chance of winning re-election then I do having this deer return.

I have to tell you it was nice texting him later and telling him “the Don is going to win.”:emoji_stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

had to watch him for 30 minutes while his doe fed and I refused to try and tread a needle through the small branches in the way.
He didn’t want any parts of that plot. Ended up 15 yards in front of me with 30 mph winds from him to me.

tape says 168” he has crazy mass. What a Covid year for my son and I.

Holy hell. That is some serious mass! Always a nice treat to have those random bucks show up. That's the benefit of getting that information in real time. Congrats Bill!

That is some Buck. Congratulations on staying put and harvesting him. Please let us know his above the burr mass measurement and age. I have never seen that much mass on a live deer here.

I don't think the words "beams" and "tines" do justice to the mass on that buck... more like "branches".... nope, "branches" honestly doesn't seem to do justice either, more like "TRUNKS", and those are some really nice sized tree-like "TRUNKS" on that buck! :emoji_open_mouth::emoji_thumbsup:

Left side was his best
H1- 6 5/8”
H2- 5 2/8”
H3- 6”

not sure on age. I’m saying 5 plus but I’ll send in the teeth to find out.
