He's definitely got some width to him but short in tine length.. One of those one would have to see live to make a good call on him,, cameras can add inches..

Thats the trouble with cameras lol.

Im inclined to think hes taller than he seems, the width just puts it out of perspective....or maybe Im trying to wish some inches on him that arnt there lol.

Could be BB,, like I say one would have to see him on the hoof and make the call.. I mean either way he's no pup, he's a darn nice deer..

About 20 minutes before legal light this morning I saw a buck that might have been him at about 60 yards. Im not sure though because he looked head & shoulders bigger than this guy ....way bigger. If it was him then these pictures don't do him justice at all. Either way it looks like my 2013 Whitetail Season is going to resemble my 2008 Whitetail Season lol. In 2008 I targeted a single buck and hunted my brains out until I finally got him...this was him

Thanks dude. After that one I swore I wouldnt shoot another one til I found a 200. Then a couple years ago I saw this guy when I was driving my wifes mini van and I just had to have the drop tine so I cheated and shot him with her rifle lol. After a few years of not shootin a buck my trigger finger is startin to get itchy lol.

Well I saw him tnite. He was less than 30 yards from my ladder stand. Unfortunatley I was 300 yards away watching through my binos lol. Didnt get the best look at him but the width is amazing and hes got great mass. Not as tall as I hoped but not bad at all. Some lucky Whitetail hunter is gonna get him shortly.

All jokes aside, the big bucks over here are few and far between. A couple of hard winters have hurt our WT herd drastically. Last winter I watched elk run up the road ( a 1/2 km) in front of my vehicle looking for a place to jump off. When they did find a place, the snow was level with there backs when they hit the gutter. Can you imagine what this was like for the deer. We need a few mild ones with little snow for the whites to recouperate.

Thank God many of the farmers in our area feed the deer alfafa bales. I watched a doe starve to death just behind our acreage. She was almost leaning up against the metal grain bin to get out of the wind and cold, (broad daylight) too weak to move as I drove past on my skidoo. Two days later the yotes had what little meat was left on her bones. After seeing that and hearing how the farmers help the deer out in bad winters, I now buy a few alfalfa bales and keep on hand.
