Another thread got me thinking (I know, very dangerous). Let's see pictures of all the great bucks you HAVEN'T been able to kill. Oh, the agony of defeat... \:\(

Here's a few of mine:

Oh, it's cool to have big bucks like that, but darn frustrating not to be able to kill them! So far, we've only been able to kill two of those highest-caliber bucks over the years (a 157 and a 156).

Didn't ya'll miss an opportunity to kill the buck pictured in the daytime with the strange kicker off his left antler last year? Brings up another question, how many of those bucks were seen while hunting but not killed?

My brother missed this buck clean at 80 yards with his MZ last year:






This buck was seen at long range (down a power-line right-of-way) at 4 1/2, but was never seen at 5 1/2 or 6 1/2:

4 1/2


5 1/2


6 1/2



I passed this buck up at 3 1/2 (because I had already killed a big mature buck that year), but he was not seen at 4 1/2 or 5 1/2:

3 1/2


4 1/2


5 1/2



I tried to get my MZ on this scrawny 3 1/2 year-old but couldn't pull off the shot. He turned into a pretty good buck at 4 1/2:

3 1/2


4 1/2



This 150-class 5 1/2 year-old was killed on a neighboring property:
