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.
Here is the scenario... you sit in your 2 piece climbing stand and your foot inadvertently bumps the lower section while there is no weight on it - and it slides down the tree, out of reach!
OK, you are safe - you have a string tied from the upper section that you are sitting on and the foot portion that slid 4-5 feet down the tree. All you have to do it pull the other section up, reposition it and you are back in business, correct?
Have you ever tested this theory?
