Gun Hunter Ends My 3 Year Quest Of An Ohio Giant!!!!!

I have strictly been a bow hunter now for 10 years. I don't have the details yet or any pictures. All I know is my buddy saw a picture from a friend of a neighboring land owner that told him he shot this buck out of my tree stand on Tuesday morning at 10 AM. We don't really restrict each other from coming onto one anothers property but I have never even considered sitting in one of his stands. I will find out the story and hopefully get some pics. This deer easily grosses over 200". The more I think about it the madder I get by the minute. I figured out this buck's winter pattern after last season and I was really thinking I would get an arrow in him between gun season and muzzle loader season. Next year there will be no trespassing by anyone unless I say so!!!!!

bummer

yeah...my brother in law took a great 8 point which is HUGE for our area - deer of a lifetime - sitting in someone else's stand during early bow season before the rifle hunter who owns the stand had a chance to hunt. Not my deer. Not my stand. Not my land. Not my call to make. But that just don't seem right.

I may have jumped the "gun" a little, lol. You all know how stories can spread when someone shoots a big buck. Well I have pics sent from the neighbor to my phone and I have the green score of the buck as well. It green scores at 190 3/8" non-typical. Definitely a true beast of a buck. However, even though I have seen this buck on my property and he was definitely on my hit list it is not the big one I thought it was. Until I get the full story from my neighbor this weekend I am going to refrain from posting any pics cause I don't want him to get any bad publicity if he did it right. Pics will be coming soon. I have breathed a little sigh of relief.
