    Rumored to go at least 200 P & Y. Incredible. Who needs Saskatchewan. Way to go brother. ( From today's Deer & Deer Hunting's FB page)

    My favorite Whitetail destination.

    Incredible buck! Thanks for posting.

    By the way, that buck is over 200 inches. Once in a lifetime buck!

    A lot of typical inches there, and not much in deductions.

    Double Dang.

    Hell of a trophy, but I bet it cooks like shoe leather or tire tread...

    If you are lucky enough to take a monster buck like that, you are not caring about table fare. Bill

    I'll try to update with a more accurate point count when it becomes available. I believe there's a required "waiting period" before an exact P & Y determination can be made ?

    That is an awesome buck, the young man being able to make the shot took some steady nerves . . .

    Exactly. My personal best is a 197 (with a bow) and is scrawny compared to this.

    Way to go kid.

    Congrats to both of you guys. Both of you have been fortunate enough to take really fine bucks. In no way does the buck in this thread diminish your accomplishments or the quality of the deer you were able to harvest.

    I have lived in Florida all of my life. When I started to hunt the mid-west back in the 80's, I made a promise that I wouldn't take any buck unless he was larger than anything I had harvested with a bow before. I have been fortunate to take the largest archery bucks of my life in Iowa...both in the 150's. Trust me when I say you could hunt your entire life here and NEVER see a 150 inch buck. It's all in your perspective. Local guys that have seen my mounts have actually said that they were the largest antlers that they have ever been able to touch.

    All we can, and should do, is tip our hat to the hunter (as long as he killed this deer by legal methods) and admire the magnificent Whitetail buck in this thread. Both deserve respect!

    Good Luck and Good Hunting!

    You are right, that kid made a kill of a lifetime.

    I too live in FL and only hunt for food. Growing up in MI I have killed more deer over 250lbs than under. But MI deer have never been know for big racks, just overall size.

    I shot my big one during a pheasant hunt on my farm in SD.

    A Gallatin Tennessee young man killed a 47-point non-typical Monday at 40-yards with a muzzleloader. Picture is in the Gallatin (Tennessee) News. To me, the mass of the deer pictured earlier in this post makes it look more impressive.

    Not to insult the buck in the above picture, but if both of the bucks pictured in this thread are standing side by side, I shoot the other one every time!
