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! ;\)

i know this is hard to answer, but what would you guess the average 5 1/2 year old or older rack in your area to gross?

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!

See BSK you are a great hunter. Congrats!!!!!!!!!


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.

Don't worry BGG, me being a good hunter is just an unsubstantiated rumor.

I wouldn't lose sleep (or leave my job) over it... ;\)

Awesome man.


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 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.
