Big Deer TV Tonight on Sportsman Channel

2020-06-10T09:23:34-04:00July 3rd, 2013|Big Deer TV, BigDeer|2 Comments

Season 2 kicks off tonight at 8 and 11 PM Eastern Time. Set your DVR and watch as I hunt for this 29-inch wide muley buck (I knew he was good, but not that wide). One lesson to take away from this episode: It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been hunting, a shooting opportunity can go south in a hurry. Stay as calm as you can, keep your wits and react, or big deer will get away from you in seconds. You’ll see what I mean. I love Wyoming, spectacular scenery and lots of game (you’ll see) and awesome people. If you want to hunt out there next fall, I highly recommend the fellow I hunted with on this show. [...]

Missouri Drop-Tine Monster Buck!

Mike: I read your blog and see your obsession with drop tine bucks. Just wanted to drop a line and show you the buck I killed last year on my place in central Missouri. This is the first and only drop tine I have ever seen. And to think my buddy missed him 2 years ago at 22 yards with a bow. This buck had 20+ points and NO drops when he missed it. The next year it dropped 2 drop tines, including a 12.5" split-drop with velvet still hanging on it. Amazing deer and fun to hunt. We had probably 10,000  pictures of this deer in 4 years and only saw him twice alive. He changed a lot, and [...]

Dustin Finley tells me his dad, Larry, killed this deer in Pendleton Co, KY on 11-11-12; they measured him at 226 7/8. That is one of the best-looking racks I’ve seen from last season, beautiful color and all those stickers! We’re trying to get the full story.

Deer Shed: Longest Tines Ever?

2020-06-10T09:23:34-04:00June 27th, 2013|BigDeer, Deer Science, Shed Hunting|2 Comments

Thanks to extreme antler collector Mike Charowhas for sharing: Mike, how often do you see an official 18-inch G2 and a 15 5/8-inch G3? Dave Boland scored it. Found north of Kansas City, MO right on the KS/MO border. Four points and scores 87 5/8. Just to give an idea how long that G2 is, consider that the non-typical point sticking off the G2 is 4 inches long! Thanks, Mike Two observations: that has to be one of the longest G2 tines ever officially measured on a whitetail; if the other side of that rack scores similarly, and give the buck a 16-inch spread, you’re looking at a 190-inch 8-point! Wow!
