at 6 yrs old he's basicly mature and reached his peak for a midwest deer, lots of points and good bulk but very weak in the frame, Im suprised it made national news.. the artical sure framed the dedicated hunters into sounding like a bunch of wierdos spankin it in the closet to the cabellas master catalogue.. This buck is still for sure a lifetime animal and very impressive.. but a buck with that short of g-1 and g-2 tines and an average inside or outside spread is not national news-

How would the meat be?

well, since its probably been eating off a pile of crushed corn at a bait for two years.. not bad at all.. timber or sagebrush bucks are the ones that are pretty rugged, this bucks neck looks swollen a little.. if he was in the rut... the smell and upper shoulder and neck meats gonna be a little tangy.

once again... not trying to steal this guys thunder..AWSOME buck... but 5 or 6 bucks like this are shot every year... and 5-6 are hit by cars.. and 15-20 are shot out of season and never see a camera or bragging wall.. and last but not least this buck was shot over bait...with a crossbow which as far as im concerned would be about the same as hitting it with your car-

Gotta love this part of the news story...

"What's the big deal, you ask. To an ardent deer hunter, this is the Megabucks winning ticket. This is the cherry 1957 Chevy Bel Air you find under a dusty cover while cleaning out grandpa's barn. This is a clear, daytime picture of a UFO, complete with a videotaped interview with the little green man."

It's writing like that...which "made" it onto the national press level.

no shat... makes me wonder if his mom or sister wrote it... and I don't know about you but I would rather see my sister in a whorehouse than my brother holding a crossbow.... claiming to be a bow hunter

it would be pretty hard to say.. mountain buck, coastal, or farm fed... a 4x4 with matching eye gaurds that goes for a total score of 130-150 would be my idea of a nice mountain buck... members could probably post some impressive photos if they wanted to to this thread..

I'd love to see OFF members deer pics. I wouldn't mind showing mine too, although it's probably not that impressive, but it was my first and only buck so far so it's impressive to me.

Nice buck!! He probably shot it from a heated tree stand over a bait station. Guys like that would leave western Oregon broken hearted and empty handed. The Blacktail never gets respect it deserves. They are quite cagey. I put in over 200 hours in the field this year and settled for a nice 3X and boy does he taste good.

Real nice buck, if you are going for trophy points. I would rather take my longbow, or compound and take down a nice doe. Sure, it doesn't have the points on it, but it sure tastes a hulluva lot sweeter to me.

here are 3 nice blacktails that 3 of my hunting buddies got at the top of a clearcut while my other buddy and i were headed to the bottom in my truck. Believe it or not, they were standing together in the clearcut. I guess we went to the wrong end of the clearcut:( . the 3 point is a real nice buck in my book. This is the best day ive seen or heard of, hunting the weeds of western oregon. those whitetail racks just dont do it for me, they are too cookie cutter, ill take a nice blacktail or muley any day.

WOW!! Nice 3pt, nice spread. That would be a trophy in my book. I'm a meat hunter not a horn hunter. Congrats.

Im not a meat hunter... therefore I often pass up a lot of shots at deer some years... now any elk is a good elk but im not pulling the trigger on a spike on opening morning. I usally have seen the bull or buck I want to shoot several times before the season starts.... and + 1 on the muley over whitetail.. but I must admit I tried "harvesting" ( doesn't that sound better than cold bloodedly gunning down? ) a whitetail buck with a recurve... and ended up on shooting a doe the last day after 3 different bucks beat my arrow... hard!
