    Off to the ranch tomorrow for a long weekend hunt with some of my closest buddies. First hunt of the season and we are all pretty excited. Here's a 9 yr old we also found during our scouting trip. Gonna be a fun weekend.

    Baker I can appreciate your view on scoring. I hope it's not as unique as it seems to be.
    For the record I don't have any thing against it, but it's just not what gets me up in the morning.
    I don't think killing of any kind should be competitive...ever.
    Also I enjoy seeing your pictures. Keep em coming!

    Just back from the ranch where we had a great time. Couple of my buddies got great deer and lots of nice bucks seen. I never found the buck I was looking for, an 8 yr old non typical I thought would be my target buck. Then this main frame 8 point showed up. I filmed him at 40 yds yesterday with no gun. Course went back looking for him this morning unsuccessfully. Magnificent and now HE is my target buck. And yes, for the record he is not the highest scoring buck on the ranch but as handsome as a buck can get. Nice drop tine also for those that like that sort of thing. Plenty old enough.

    What a deer. Saw off that drop tine and he’s a perfect specimen.

    Lol, heart pumping is an understatement. Both of those bucks are pretty damn cool!

    Wow, that 8 is amazing. The antlers make his body look like a midget! Thanks for sharing.

    Couple of data points on bucks above. The 9 yr old 10 pt in post 42 above had 46" mass. ~25 and 26" main beams .187" for those that like scores. We rattled him up to 30 yds after watching him where he couldn't be shot for over 30 mins. ... very exciting! Thought my buddy was going to have a heart attack! The mainframe 8 pt in post 48 had a drop tine for the first time which was his undoing. His 8 pt frame was 177" and he totaled 200" even. 24 1/2" wide

    Most of us will never encounter a 7 yr old on our places. Heck...down here, 4 yr olds are about as rare as a needle in a haystack. Those are magnificent animals! Thx for sharing.

    Those guys have it going on, but that 177" 8 point is incredible!
