    Total net non typical - 254 4/8





    What and absolute TANK!


    This photo below is my favorite but they are all great shots and ya gotta love that smile! One happy camper!



    Here's his story...

    Saturday morning- saw buck feeding out in field with 3 other bucks, watched
    him for over 1 hr in my spotting scope, got some pictures through the
    vortex, which are attached. I knew from the first second I saw him he was a
    true giant but never had him pinned at what he actually scored! I watched
    him bed down, went in for the sneak through the standing flax, Got within 43
    yards but when he stood up he walked straight away and I had no shot with
    the bow.

    Saturday night, went back to the field just to make sure he was still around
    and he was right where I saw him last. Left him for the night

    Sunday morning- Went out with Mike and he was in the same field and
    the night previous, waited over an hour for him to bed once he did, we
    tried the stalk again, well we did get in closer, got within 32 yards waited
    a bit and he stood up and did it to me again, walked straight away! NO
    SHOT!!! My heart sank for a second time in 2 days ! What an amazing buck
    to watch at 32 yards!

    Monday morning - I had to be responsible for a couple days and go harvest so
    I did a drive through the area on the way to the farm and he was again in the same field! There was no wind so it wasn't as hard leaving him there to
    go harvest.

    Tuesday - WINDY and I was harvesting!!!

    Wednesday - planned on going to office in AM then harvesting in PM but I had
    to try and find him if I could, I was more then a little consumed by this
    buck! Well he was in the same field again, he was the most predictable buck
    I have ever seen, which I was good with. I again spent some quality time
    with my vortex spotting scope. This time I made sure I knew which way he
    bedded down so I would be broadside when he stood up. I left my truck at
    8:15 and went for the stalk. Half way in the smaller buck with him stood
    up and ate for a bit so I layed down and let him bed up again. Well this
    time I got to 28.5 yards and he had no clue I was there, wind in my face,
    laying broadside to me, now just the patience game, he put me to the test,
    I was there for over 2.5 hrs kneeling in mud waiting for him to stand. The
    smaller buck got up again and milled around for probably 20 minutes then the
    moment of truth, he finally stood up! I was ready and drew and put an arrow
    in him!
    He didn't go 130 yards and 5 minutes later he was dead, I didn't get back
    to the truck till 12:45 so safe to say I didn't make it to the office or
    harvesting at all that day.

    He was one of those deer that actually grew as I walked up to him!

    Great woodsmanship or (plainsmanship as the it looks like) to get that close 3 different times. I admire the skill level it took to take this animal. Great story too!

    I received these pictures from a friend of mine this morning. He stated that the hunter in the pictures were a friend of his. I received a PM from another friend on this site, and he said something is not right as he received this same picture from a friend of his too. I hope my friend who emailed the pictures to me did not lie that his friend got this deer. If he did, I appologise, who ever got this deer got one beautiful deer.

    Who ever shot this dear needs to throw all there hunting shit in the river because they will never get another chance at a dear that big. Here in Idaho we used to see them kind quite often but the last 10 years they are far and few between. I have 4 hanging on my wall that were killed above my house but I am not sure they are as nice as this one. Wow what a dear!

    Who ever shot that buck got a damn monster


    Reminds me of the "Phantom" buck my brother and I shot at in Weston Wyo, about 35 yrs ago (really I don't wan to be reminded) but we had both made fantastic shots earlier, it was the last day of the hunt, and we were in the back of the ranchers pick up when we saw this buck, he looked like the friggin Hartford Elk, anyway he was about 50-60 yds away, I shot first, waited for him to fall, he didn't, he stood there broadside, and let us shoot at him 14 times, we even relaoded, and flapped his tail at us as in kiss my you know and ran off


    As God as my witness, I do not know how we missed it

    Well my conscience is eased, I've finally told the world about the "Phantom buck"

    No idea how much this sob weighed. If size has anything to do with it, the meat must have been tough as hell to eat??? Looks to big to drag it back to the truck. Wonder if he had a bigger older brother, & how big his daddy was? Here in Wisconsin there is a certain area of the state that large deer have been seen over the years with big beautiful racks.

    I don't know what that beast is, but it doesn't appear to be from this planet.
