This isn't the only point of QDM, but it sure is a nice benefit:





Haven't pulled the jaw, but I'm sure he is 5 1/2+, 215# live weight, 13 points, 5 1/4" bases, 23" beams, 22 1/2" spread, grosses 156.

Just cruising along, about to skirt the downwind side of a food plot. No signs what-so-ever of the rut on my place. The above buck hadn't urinated on his hocks the first time. They were white and clean.

All older bucks were still being seen in bachelor groups. Almost no scrapes open yet.

That is natures beauty in its purest form. Not you BSK, but the fine buck. I`ll assure that is a "see there" look he is sharing, and well deserved. Beautiful animal.

Did you know he was around from any trail cam pics?

I only had pictures of him from July. I thought he had left the property. Either he is amazingly good at avoiding cameras (including never entering a food plot since September), or he had left and just recently returned.

Here is he was around the 4th of July. He put on considerable growth after that:

We've seen no signs of the rut what-so-ever. Absolutely crazy. Bucks should be in full seek mode right now yet they are still hanging in bachelor groups. Only a couple of half-hearted scrapes so far, but signpost rubs are starting to show up daily.

I have been back 5 or 6 times to look again, dang what a good looking animal.......

Last weekend my wife and I scouted some and did see a small scrape, no this year rubs though. I bet it is different now.

You think it's bad going back and looking at a picture, I bet I've gone out to the walk-in cooler and just stared at him hanging there at least 50 times since I killed him Sunday.

I know what you mean it seems like it's not real! All that hard work and you get something like that! It's a dream come true! \:\)

I'm the same way I keep coming back to look at the pics. I think I've actually been grinning bigger than BSK since this post came up. Such a well deserved deer, I've learned too much from you to not be estatic for you! \:D That absolutely made my season

I would love to say I killed him with Thor's Hammers (my double-barrel 58), but I've retired that gun. I'm shooting a much easier to handle T/C Omega 50.

I killed him at 4:30 PM.

Just goes to show the wide range of scores and antler sizes each age-class can produce. In my area, the average mature buck only produces a 120-125 gross rack. Yet, on occasion you see a 80 gross mature buck or a 150+ mature buck.

I'm just glad that day it was the 150+ mature buck instead of the 80! ;\)

From all of the trail-cam pics of 5 1/2 year-old bucks I've gotten, the average 5 1/2 year-old buck in my area grosses 125.

i guess all things being equal in your area, the rack size difference would have to be genetic. would you agree? your buck may have yankee genes!

What's this world coming to???? I've heard my share of stories about black panthers, moose, deer/coyote hybrids, and even unicorns. I've put up with 40:1 buck-doe ratios, the "we have no older bucks because we kill all our yearlings" argument, and I have listened to people tell me the creation of Unit L has wiped out all the deer.

As if that wasn't bad enough, now I'm hearing BSK's a great hunter?

I need a vacation!


Seriously Bryan...awesome deer! It's great to see people managing as they see fit and harvesting what makes them happy. And by the sounds of it, you are one happy man. Congrats!

For that particular buck, yes it is genetic capability in combination with the right food sources. I strongly suspect this buck lived most of the time in some nearby agricultural bottomlands. But he still had to have the genetic potential to grow that rack.

Between individual deer eating the same resources, genetics makes a big difference. Between entire deer herds, genetics is not an issue. All deer herds have deer with good and poor genetic potential. Any differences between average herd performance will be due to food resources and age.

I killed a buck once upon a time and stayed up with him all night long just lookin. I asked him several times where he had been all my life. He never answered. I bet I scored that deer 10 times that night.

BSK,

Great deer. We have seen one or two like that, but we are not smart enough to harvest them.

I see you have a Trans 4. AND its looks to me like you are the premier authority on small property set up and management.

The proof is in the harvest!

Ya, we just got the Trans4x4 Mule and absolutely love it. We needed four-passenger capacity, and the new Polaris crew-cab was not only several thousand dollars more, they weren't available anywhere.

We have been quite successful at producing mature bucks over the last 5-6 years. However, as luck would have it, we kept harvesting the smallest antlered mature bucks using the property. It's about time one of us lucked into one of the largest antlered mature bucks!
