South Dakota: East Sioux Falls Buck Still Alive in 2015!

south dakota you tube buck 2015In October 2008 I first blogged about a giant whitetail that was living in the city limits of East Sioux Falls. Somebody posted a Youtube video of him (I don’t see it online now) and it caused mild hysteria amongst hunters and non-hunters alike. At the time people figured the buck was the walking state record non-typical for South Dakota. He was a 12×14 and people figured he might score 250!

The buck would come and go between the city limits and bordering private lands, where people tried to hunt him. Rumors flew like they always do with a Big Deer—“somebody poached him…no, he’s still out there…he got hit by a car…”

For 7 years I’ve tracked this amazing deer with the help of Kelly K., who has watched the buck and found his sheds a couple times. Kelly wrote me yesterday with this picture and update:

Mike: The East Sioux Falls Youtube Buck is still around! Cannot believe he is still going, his horns are on the way down.

Kelly figures the Sioux Falls Buck is at least 12 and maybe as old as 14. Amazing. I hope this deer lives forever!

Thanks Kelly for the update and keep us posted.

  1. I find it interesting how he pretty much maintains the same rack characteristics after all these years.
    When his time comes it would be even more interesting if an actual aging could
    Be done.
    Thanks to Kelly for investing so much time and for sharing the story.
    And thanks Mike for the update on a really cool Big Deer story.
