Nice buck...:thumbsup1: Congrats to your friend. Get's me thinking about my hunt tomorrow morning. I've got a lunch packed and I am planning on spending the entire day in the tree. Cam pics show the deer coming in the afternoon, but I don't have a time stamp so I have to just be thre and hope they come in before dark.
People think all KS bucks are huge, but htat isn't the case. What is the case is that there are some really big bucks here. I am fortunate to live in this state.
Nice looking buck. It does not really matter that he saw bigger deer if that is his biggest one to date. I guess it doesn't really matter if he saw bigger deer and the one that he took was not his best either. The only thing that matters is that he is happy with it and I don't see why he wouldn't be. The only thing that sucks about it is that he is done now. Good luck to the rest of you guys. It sounds like the rut is starting to kick into gear in accross the country so I am expecting even more pictures of you guys with your bucks soon.
As a Taxidermist I look at hundreds of Whitetail Bucks every year. I know that I have seen many different ways people judge the size of racks on live deer. I think for the most part they all are pretty close. I'm going to give you some measurements that I have noticed being right on in just about every deer. We have used it in the last couple years and have only been off by about 5-6 inches. We do study the deer while bowhunting so we get a little more time to look at them....
