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.

      Just got back from 2 days out of Walleye Retreat. Fishing wasn't on fire, but we ended up with a limit for 5 guys and a nice fish fry. Walleyes were 2:1 over saugers and most were in the 14-15" range. The keeper saugers were 14"-17". We fished in 29 FOW and had steady action throughout the day, with most of it being 10:00-3:00. Biggest walleyes 19 and 23 were 8' off the bottom. As others have posted, we had LOTS of lookers, who would not commit. Hottest bait was a plain red hook for deadstick and a small, gold "Slender Spoon". That caught 70% of the fish. I know others out of the resort struggled, so luck continues to be the variable.

      It really slowed down since this warm-up began last week. The fish seem more scattered now. I think they're on the move to deeper haunts. I bet it'll pick up shortly since this is a stable warm front.

      Nice work Frank. I look forward to the day that I can say that I am fishing a lake that I fished 30 years ago.
