I have heard of this deer. I know the guy who shot it. It was shot outside of Spring Valley. I have not seen the deer but I know that it was an 18 pointer. Eleven on one side and seven on the other. I will try to get some pictures.

I live in Fillmore County, and I got pictures of the deer emailed to me from a buddy, sorry guys, but I don't know if they guy wants them posted, so I don't feel comfortable putting them up.

But just to burst your bubble, it's nowhere near a record, it is huge, it's a 180+ non typical, but nowhere close to a record.

It's possible that we are talking about 2 different bucks, but I highly doubt it.

Actually, I just found a link to the pictures online, but I don't think this site allows me to post it, it's on Magnum sports website under kill zone 2007, page 5, middle bottom picture

Darn nice buck, but not a record. I did see this deer, but when I herd a possible record I didn't think this was the one you were talking about.

I agree, great buck but not even close to the MN state record (I think the Breen buck). Anyone else think that picture looks altered or is it just me?

Yeah, it does look altered. However, it could have been taken with a bad digital camera. Looks like the deer was cut in there. When fishing last year we caught some crappies and I took a picture with my bad digital camera and everything looked like it was pasted in there. Anywho, reguardless, very nice deer!!!

Guys, I think its just you. smile.gif The pic doesn't look altered at all. Pretty authentic right up to the blood on the sleeve and pants of the hunter. Not to mention the long grass in front of and falling on the deers legs, that would take a master at at photo shop to try and alter and get lined up to look authentic. Just another nice Minnesota buck.

I swear that if the picture doesn't come firt hand from someone on this sight, its called a fake. When I shot my buck this year, the guys I tracked it with did a photo shoot, they have made numerous 130-140 class bucks look much bigger than they really are. I found out that setting up a buck for good pictures to make it look huge is very common. We've come a long way from pics of deer on the old meat pole, but when outdoor publications offer great prizes for awesome pictures, it's not suprising. These guys will shoot the deer, gut it, hang it, then move it to a scenic location for pics. Its kind of an art. We dragged my deer from the woods to the field before field dressing so we could get better pictures. Unfortunately he had a real busted up nose that we couldn't get cleaned which would take me out of any winning pic circles. Still a great buck though.

Not altered at all, just set up right.

Thats a fake. grin.gif

Seriously though it gets tiresome when every picture posted is called a fake, photoshoped or altered.

I agree, its like nobody wants to believe that a big buck got shot. The heck of it is, even if it was cleaned up with photoshop or "cut in". its still a dead dear somewhere. Still, my post was half in jest.

I did not intend to give the impression that the deer was not legit, the picture just looks odd to me. I have no doubt the deer is real. Great buck whatever the case!

Jlm, the reply wasn't so much directed at you as the rest of this forum community. Anyone who has read other threads with big deer are always saying that the pic is a fake or altered in some way. Its actually kind of funny but it can get old.

grin.gifWhat did you think we'd take altered to mean?

You are right, I guess "altered" could be interpreted the wrong way. Actually, it looks like the pic has been lightened up or something. Again, whatever the case, nice deer!

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!

      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.
    • eyeguy 54
      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL

      The Great Lakes Compact Council and the Great Lakes Regional Body are seeking public feedback on draft updates to the procedures for reviewing requests to divert water from the Great Lakes Basin. The compact is federal law that governs the use of water in the Great Lakes watershed. The compact council and regional body are accepting comments through June 21, at 4:30 p.m.  Under the compact, diversions of water out of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin are generally prohibited. However, the compact identifies limited circumstances under which diversion may be allowed. In some instances, before a diversion proposal can be approved, it must undergo review by the regional body and may require approval by the compact council. The draft updates are strictly procedural and would not modify the compact’s basic terms. The compact council is composed of the governors of the eight states that border the Great Lakes. The regional body includes the eight governors on the council plus the premiers of Ontario and Quebec. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is Gov. Mark Dayton’s delegate to both groups and provides data and water management expertise to assist implementing the compact. The effort to refine the procedures under the compact follows the states’ and provinces’ first experience reviewing a diversion request under the agreement. Reflecting on that experience and feedback from stakeholder groups, the states and provinces concluded that some aspects of the procedures should be clarified or refined. Following discussions with key stakeholders and tribal interests, the states and provinces developed the draft updates that were released for public review May 22. The updates include these changes: Expands opportunities for the public to participate at hearings and public meetings. Acknowledges the special status of First Nations and federally recognized Tribes through separate meetings with them and granting standing to contest compact council decisions. Identifies circumstances under which an additional public comment period would be offered between issuance of the regional body’s declaration of finding and the compact council’s final decision. Essentially, if the compact council views the regional body’s modifications to the applicant’s diversion proposal as substantial, the council would take public comment prior to making its final decision. The existing public comment opportunity prior to the regional body’s deliberations would remain. After considering public input received by June 21, the regional body will revise the draft procedural updates this summer. The compact council will then consider the updates and decide whether some or all of them should be adopted through rulemaking. The draft updates are available at www.glslcompactcouncil.org/PUT-DraftUpdates.aspx. This website includes instructions for sharing feedback. The public input process includes an in-person opportunity to share feedback in Duluth on June 21 at Fitger’s Inn at 10:30 a.m. Documents are also available on the regional body website. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
