He's Back!!

13 posts in this topic

The same buck from my previous pictures visited my trail camera again. This time we get a good look at him from the front. Any more attempts at scoring this deer would be great.

Hopefully this little guy is related and will be nice in a couple years!

From the deer that I have scored and the bucks that I have my guess that the buck would make Pope&Young.

It look pretty even on both sides,decent spread,but not alot of mass.

It is suprising but mass adds alot to a rack and the uneven racks will loose alot of points in score.

My guess,128-135.It takes a very good 8 pointer to make the book.I have a smaller 9 pt buck that scored 127 and this buck looks to be better in both tine height and mass.

I was guessing the same as leeharvey. I would guess in the mid to upper 130's gross. He will have some deductions; as I thought I seen a sticker point off the one g2...(not looking at the pic while writing this)? Nice buck. Long brow tines...pretty cool looking!!

Yup, the number that popped in my head when I saw the pic was 132. I know it's impossible to score a deer down to the single digit by looking at it, but I always mentally do anyway. So, I'm in-line with the other two guesses. Not only is it a really nice buck, its rack has nice "character points" in my book too. You'd better hope he doesn't stumble over in front of my stand before you get a crack at him!

In reading another post I think Tyler is talking about SD bow so I apologize. I'm glad we don't have to wait the extra week here in MN.

If your on private land i'd hold off a year and let him grow one more year.....his features make him look only about 2 1/2 years in my opinion....could be a monster in another year.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
