Very impressive! Sure is odd to see velvet still on. Us MN hunters rarely get to see that during the early season!

Velvet is fairly normal for the first 6-10 days in North dakota. I have shot 2 bucks in Velvet in the first week in Sept in ND in the last 7 years.

On another website they say it scored between 216 and 243!

Once this beauty has dried down, then they can have it scored for a final total. If this buck doesnt break the record, it for sure is a buck of all hunters dreams or at least mine. I saw a typical 17 pointer shot where we hunt about 10 years ago and that also would make one drool.

I deer hunt to enjoy the hunt and friendships made but for me, a buck of this size would really make my year.

Where I hunt in North dakota it is somewhat hilly and thousands of acres of trees. I would guess that only the southeast part of the state has numerous trees other than the tree claims.

A friend of a friend shot it. Taken the 1st 1/2 hour of the first day, he had the deer's pattern pegged down for a while. He said 240" 9X9 double drop tine. Good thing the 2- 160" and the 1- 170" he was with still are around!! smile.gif

I heard rumors of major deer drama between this guy and the neighboring land owner. Also, one of the pro teams that claim to be "fair chase hunters" was contacted and paid a large chunk of money to get a crack at him.

Can you expand on this? What do you mean?

I really shouldn't have posted on this because it’s totally hear-say (but from a fairly reliable source)

First of all, lots of wildlife-eye footage was captured of this giant, phone calls were made to those in the business to try to fatten somebody’s pockets. Then a feeder went up 20 yards on one side of the fence that borders the two properties, and then another feeder went up on the other side of the fence.

Other than that, it sounded like a new age Hatfield / McCoy battle complete with verbal bashing and threats.

I’m not sure what I’d do in the same situation so I can’t judge, and I’m not trying to judge, it’s just what I heard thru the grape vine and I found it interesting on a few different levels.

So one neighbor wanted to sell a hunt on his property showing off this particular buck. The other neighbor, on his own property, ended up shooting the deer himself.

I didn't think a buck could be scored as a record while it is still in velvet, anyone know for sure? Great buck no matter what the circumstances.

      I may get a big ration of doodoo for this post, but here goes.  As a business owner (not food related) I guess I'm a bit confused by all of these negative posts.  The new owners (remember, they invested their money in the place) have evidently decided on a business model that they feel will work for them to be profitable.  I don't know them, don't know what their background or experience is, and it really doesn't matter.  It's their business, so they get to do with it whatever they choose.  If their model doesn't work, it stands to reason that they'll change their model, but that is entirely up to them.  There's likely a reason that the ownership of The Landing has changed several times in the last decade.  Trying to drive these owners out of business won't bring back 1980's priced cheap food and drink.   There are lots of places in many towns and cities that I choose not to eat at or visit because I don't want to pay the prices they charge.  But I don't go on the Internet and demean the owners and their places of business because I choose not to buy from them.  I'm a few times a year visitor to The Landing, and it is generally for lunch off the lake.  If I thought it was too expensive I simply wouldn't go back.  Vote with your dollars, not your posts on this forum.  Get a Trip Advisor or Yelp account and post a review if it's that important for you to vent.   The alternative for all of you of course, is that if anyone else has a model where they can charge half as much and still make a profit (not likely), well maybe that person ought to buy The Landing and give us all cheap food and drink.  We'll line up at the dock for you.  It's the old "put your money where your mouth is" adage.  The fact is, most of the old favorite local establishments you talk about have been in the same family for years or generations, and the owners make a living because of low overhead.  Someone investing in a new venture has lots to pay for, and as you all know, owning anything on a lake, and especially on Vermilion in Greenwood Township, is not a low-cost endeavor.   Let's support those who choose to invest in these expensive pieces of real estate on our lake (or at least not disparage them in these posts), and help them to keep them open.  Time to forget about getting $1 tap beers and $2.50 hamburgers, when the owners have to pay 2017 overhead costs.  Guys, the 80's want their lunch tab back.
