Before



After

My cousin killed this big six tonight in a fairly open wooded lot feeding on acorns. He actually shot this deer last year with a bow but obviously it was a non fatal glancing blow. Really happy for him that he was able to kill him this year. He was killed just a little over a mile from where the trail cam picture was taken. Pretty sure the deer was 3.5.

very awesome. I had the chance to kill a big six 3 years ago but never was able to close the deal. They are quite awesome when they get 3.5 and up!

Nice one!

Are you 100% certain that's the same buck as in the pic?

Reason I ask is noticed the left main beam tip is elevated higher in the live pic than it appears in the kill pic.

I'm not 100% sure, but I'm fairly certain it has to be. I run cameras all over the area this deer was killed and had no other pictures of a big 6 that looked like this one. Also, what are the odds of 2 deer that similar in such a small area? I'll put a cam back up soon to make sure I don't get any more pictures of the deer in the trail cam photo.

The odds you would have two mature 6-pointers that similar are extremely low, and I do believe it's most probably the same buck. But if you take some more pics at various angles, and they consistently show the live buck with a higher pointed left main beam than the dead buck, you may have had two very similar mature 6-pointers (could have been twins). In the case of mature mainframe 6-pointers, may actually be a higher probability of having such similar antlered bucks in a small area (twins) vs. widely separated geographical areas.

Now, this may just be a bit of an optical illusion due to only seeing a single pic, but the harvested buck's right main beam tip appears to have more curvature upward (final couple inches) than seen on the living buck's pic.

I've got some hard horn pics of the buck in the trailcam photo on my computer at home. I'll compare next week when I get home.

He was with another buck but I'm not sure if it was the other deer in the trailcam pic or not.
