Canadian Buck: 8 Years Old w/7/8” Antler Bases!

From our friend Oneil Baillargeon who lives and hunts in central Saskatchewan:

Was fortunate to harvest “Clubroot,” an ancient old buck who’s been living around home for 8 years now. He’s never been much of a buck until this year, going from a 5×4 last year to adding a pile of mass and brow tine length this year.

Not having any other deer on camera that I was convinced were over 5 years old, I decided this was the deer I would be pursuing. Having a couple sightings the days leading up to the season opener, I was in the right place at the right time for the evening of opening day.

Clubroot barely had any teeth left and carried bases measuring 7 2/8″… I was more than happy to hang my tag on this narrow old fella.–Oneil

Way to go man, an 8-year-old buck that has survived the wolves and brutal winters of the wild Canadian North is one of whitetail hunting’s top trophies.

  1. I love that buck, He reminds me of a big narrow buck I called Mr. T. several years back. Mr. T. wouldn’t score anything, but he was unique in that he was super narrow like this buck (but not near as massive). Had a ton of history with him, etc. Congrats Oneil. That is a beauty right there.
