The picture from the rear of that Whitetail is unreal. And the muley is one very nice buck. Rifle, bullet, range, details SCO, this place loves details, it looks colder than this lady I used to know!

Here is some more details about the hunts.
Been after this deer for 3 years. My client tagged out the day before (his first day of his hunt) on a 162" 5x6 otherwise this would have been his deer. I borrowed his gun to shoot it and he talked me into it as I thuoght it was too small for me to shoot. I was looking to break the 200" mark and I thought the amount of size this deer had lost would make him only in the 190's. He was definitely a bigger deer last year and had started to decline in antler size. Aged him between 8.5 to 9.5 yrs. Would have been a new world record for SCI last year and possibbly B&C. Widest outside spread is just under 30 inches and the deer weighed close to 400lbs. Shot him on the 13th of november in full rut at 350 yards. We stalked it for 750 yards working our way along a field edge. First shot was broadside and split the heart in half. All the deer did was turn and start walking. Hit him 3 out of 5 shots before he finally broke down. We found the bullet under the skin from the first shot perfectly mushroomed. Was shooting a 300 wsm with some hot 180 grain reloads.
What I mean by this is that this deer was at his peak last year or the year before and has lost close to 8 inches off of each G2 and close to 4 inches off of each brow tine. The previous 2 years he looked pretty much the same with very little change between them. If you add up the lost inches that would be another 24 inches to add to the score plus if he would have lost any beam length or mass, although that is usually the only thing that they do not loose as much. He may have lost some length on his other tines as well but I have no way to reference that. I know the last 2 years his G2's were 2 inches longer than his G3's and his brows were half the length of his G2's. His G3's are 14 inches this year and his G2's are only 8 inches. I do not have pics of this deer from previous years but have notes that I have taken and have about 5 hours of veiwing this deer through a spotting scope at 800 yards plus or on private land that I could not get permission on until this year. This deer was aged at 8.5 to 9.5 years old.
I was hunting in southern Alberta for 2.5 days during that early november blizzard when I harvested this deer on saturday. It was -23 below freezing and the wind was blowing 25-40 miles/hr. Funny thing was I did not see any other hunter that saturday lol. By the time I took pics, gutted and started to cape and skin the deer the ears and legs were already freezing. I was up to my butt in spots in drifted snow on some of the coulee edges.
3.5 days of hunting and I harvested a 204" whitetail and a 180" mule deer 500 km's apart. Sad thing is I missed about a 220" mule deer on my first day because I failed to notice that where I had my new scope mounted at they forgot to tighten the windage screw down on the left side. I knew I should have mounted it myself but I had a very short time schedule. Seen another 2 deer that would have been in the 200" range but lost them in the near whiteout conditions the day before. Jumped this one at 200 yards and dropped him running flat out broadside with one shot.
NOTE: (It is not normaly this cold on the mule deer hunt and usually very little snow if any).

I cannot get over the size of that whitetail. That is just a magnificent animal in all respects. Congratulations, man. You had an epic season, no doubt.

Please forgive my ignorance, but why SCI? Why not B/C?
Beautiful bucks and great story. Thanks for sharing.
