That is indead a nice buck and I would guess that he would go 215-220. I have only seen a couple of deer that I would say were 40"+ and one of them was on the top of the Book Cliffs that you can see from Fruita during the Utah archery hunt. The funny thing was that the deer was standing 50' away from a trailer while the hunters were off looking for one. We saw the hunters the next day and they didn't believe us until we showed them the video.
WOW - That sure does get the hunting blood pumping!!! That is a granddaddy and I would guess right around 220 as well. That sure is a great story I'm certain that is told over and over. Thanks for the re-energizing picture!
I have a system I use in Whitetail hunting during the rut that seems to work for me. When I make a mock scrape in the area I wish to hunt I will place a couple of 35mm
film canisters (film removed of course) in the scrape after I have cleared out all leaves and other debris. The film canisters are filled with cotton balls and saturated with doe in heat urine. This keeps the urine from soaking in the ground and can be refreshed on each trip if needed. I will also use the tarsal gland of the buck...
