Holy Moly!!!!

This email is making the rounds, but I have not seen it on here yet.  It's a toad!!!!!  I don't know anything about it.  Do any of you Canadien members know????

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It’s from Canada

Gross non typical score - 259 1/8
Gross typical frame - 211 7/8
Net typical frame - 207
Total net non typical - 254 4/8

What an absolute TANK!

Saturday morning- saw buck feeding out in field with 3 other bucks, watched him for over 1 hr in my spotting scope, got some pictures through the vortex, which are attached. I knew from the first second I saw him he was a true giant but never had him pinned at what he actually scored! I watched him bed down, went in for the sneak through the standing flax, Got within 43 yards but when he stood up he walked straight away and I had no shot with
the bow.

Saturday night, went back to the field just to make sure he was still around and he was right where I saw him last. Left him for the night

Sunday morning- Went out with Mike Gebhard and he was in the same field and the night previous, waited over an hour for him to bed once he did, we tried the stalk again, well we did get in closer, got within 32 yards waited
a bit and he stood up and did it to me again, walked straight away! NO SHOT!!! My heart sank for a second time in 2 days ! What an amazing buck to watch at 32 yards!

Monday morning - I had to be responsible for a couple days and go harvest so I did a drive through the area on the way to the farm and he was again in the same field! There was no wind so it wasn't as hard leaving him there to go harvest.

Tuesday - WINDY and I was harvesting!!!

Wednesday - planned on going to office in AM then harvesting in PM but I had to try and find him if I could, I was more then a little consumed by this buck! Well he was in the same field again, he was the most predictable buck
I have ever seen, which I was good with. I again spent some quality time with my vortex spotting scope. This time I made sure I knew which way he bedded down so I would be broadside when he stood up. I left my truck at
8:15 and went for the stalk. Half way in the smaller buck with him stood up and ate for a bit so I layed down and let him bed up again. Well this time I got to 28.5 yards and he had no clue I was there, wind in my face, laying broadside to me, now just the patience game, he put me to the test, I was there for over 2.5 hrs kneeling in mud waiting for him to stand. The smaller buck got up again and milled around for probably 20 minutes then the
moment of truth, he finally stood up! I was ready and drew and put an arrow in him!

He didn't go 130 yards and 5 minutes later he was dead, I didn't get back to the truck till 12:45 so safe to say I didn't make it to the office or harvesting at all that day.

He was one of those deer that actually grew as I walked up to him!

Just to clarify, you can read

Just to clarify, you can read the beginning of the post.  It is NOT my deer, although I wish..... :yes:   It was an email going around.  Heck, I would almost think it was photoshopped, if it wasn't for the fact that they had live photos too.  Unreal.

I just got that email a

I just got that email a couple days ago. That thing is just scary. Look at the mass where he is holding it for Pete's sake. It is hard to believe and I can totally see how you would think that it was photoshopped. So is it completely legit than? If so, that is amazing. And to take it with a bow in the open terrain that it looks like it was living in.... like Goose said, "I am just speechless". That is one heck of a deer. The Brock Lesner of the deer world for sure.

Okay, the horns are huge and

Okay, the horns are huge and impressive....more like a friggin' elk than a deer, but look at the body of the deer.  It is huge.  It's size and coloration makes me think Kudo...it is that big.  I bet the deer is pushing 400 pounds.  I tell you that is a deer that deserves a full body mount and should be on display at a Cabela's or Bass Pro shop for everyone to see and admire.

Like the others, I'm speechless about the mass of the antlers.  i can't imagine having a  deer that size coming into range for me.  I would surely get buck fever...so kudos to the hunter that took it.

I agree with you about the

I agree with you about the size of the bucks body. His antlers are impressive (actually a lot more than impressive) but the size of his body is what is just unbelievable. That thing is just crazy. It kind of gets you thinking. Think about the Guiness Book of World Records. There is the tallest man who is freakishly tall. Compared to normal people he is just huge. We see pictures of big trophy animals all the time. But I kind of wonder why we never see animals that litterly are just unproportionatly big. One explanation is that natural selections works against genotypes that produce freaks like that. When it happens in a human, we can nurture that person and let them still live a full life. In nature, there might be a serious fitness cost to being that big. So maybe these freaks in the animal world just don't make it to maturity. This guy is huge... that's all I know.
