Mike: I have watched your show, I must say it is well put together, nice job. I watched your recent show on Wisconsin whitetails. I have another nice buck for you.
Two long days on November 2nd and 3rd and I ended my weekend with this Trempealeau County giant. Straight 8, no trash or extra points. Teeth say he is 5 1/2 years old. My taxidermist put the tape on him Monday morning. 171 6/8 gross green. I still can’t quit smiling. Take care, Gary
Love giant 8s, great job Gary!
Awesome deer, congratulations! Nothing worse than a great buck but a poor or cheesy picture. I always strive to get pictures that are respectful to the animal and this photo is as good as the deer itself. Well done!
Wow. Just wow. I’ve always said I’d take a big 4×4….err, 8 point…over anything else anyday, but this is beyond sick. Very cool and congratulations over and over!
Got it, I’ll send them later tonight or tomorrow when I’m home
Steve, you probably wouldn’t have seen anything on it cuz it wasn’t advertised. Just friends and locals know of it. It scored 180 or 181″ I believe. I was told that was net score but I would have to confirm that to be 100%. I can send you some pictures if you would like, just let me know your email address.
Scott. Thanks that would be great. That would explain why I haven’t seen it before.
Killer buck Gary! Nice job man
Big 8pts are cool. Our neighbor and friend of the family shot a giant 8pt last season. Scores 181″ and was officially the largest buck scored in MI last year taken in gun season. Has a plack on the wall for the safari club. Thing is insane!
Scott. Which 8 pt was that?
I’m from michigan also.
I thought the soppisch buck scored 182 and change.
Either way they’re both huge.
I love those 8’s also.
171 and 153 is incredible.
I’m proud of my 135″ 8pt. Bow kill.
But throw in 20 to 40 more inches.
Impressive to say the least.
Steve 135 is an awesome 8 too bud..Especially with a bow man!
Maverick, I know and I’m not complaining. I’ve always loved the 8 pts. I’m just loving Gary’s buck. With all the pics and stories of this years bucks, that one is my favorite buck by far.
And I mean no disrespect to any of those guys and gals.
I can’t wait to read the full story and hopefully see more pics.
Sorry about absent picture earlier. Blog software was on the fritz!
I NEED YOUR HELP! :) My husband is entered in a Buck Photo Contest through a local radio station and is currently in 2nd place!!!
