Hey me and my brothers were talking about this deer the other day. What is the story on the landowner taking the deer. I have heard that he had permision and that he weaseled his way out of it just curious.
A massive, non-typical whitetail deer rack with 24 scoreable points was officially scored at the Oklahoma Wildlife Expo, Saturday, August 27, at the Lazy E Arena. Measuring 248 6/8 inches, the deer was taken by Michael Crossland of Grandfield and is the new number one Cy Curtis entry.
Crossland took the huge buck in Tillman County which was previously reported to have 31 points. The antlers were held as evidence in a court case and Crossland took possession of them August 2 when the case was dismissed by a Tillman County judge.
The former non-typical Cy Curtis record whitetail, taken in 2003 in Hughes County, scored 240 3/8 and had a total of 29 points. Crossland’s buck also surpasses the current Oklahoma Boone and Crockett record non-typical whitetail taken in Johnston County in 1970 which scored 247 2/8 inches.
More than 45,000 people attended the Wildlife Expo hosted by the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation. Participants were able to stroll through more than 100 different booths and hands-on activities during the free, two-day event.
When it comes to scent, there are basically two types; those that attract and those that mask. I've tried both on many occasions. There are lots and lots of "doe in heat" scents, designed to attract a big buck into range. I've also used a "cow in heat" scent while elk hunting.
Another scent would almost be better named as a "coverup smell". The main goal is to cover up human odor or mask it. Though I don't believe you can ever totally eliminate all human...
