No need really. Just wondering about your conclusion without seeing the question.
l think theres deer that size everywhere its just letting them live long enough to reach there full potential .
and of course being in the right spot when they walk out helps .
if one was inclined to score a cracker like that what number would you guess him to be ???
About 50 years ago I started my hunting carrier in the UP. Never killed a dandy buck like that!!!!!! Must have had your heart going pitter patter for a while. Congratulations on one damn fine animal!!!! Liberty
If that is a preserve buck he would be a management buck. That 135-140" buck is real nice and obviously mature, he would be a great trophy from Michigan - wild and free. Don't compare the rack to the person, compare it to the deers head, it has nice mass which looks bigger compared to the short beams, short tines and narrow spread. Nice buck but no high fence monster.
We are referring to the non-typical deer, not the typical one. If you scored the non-typical, it would be the new world record, hence my contention that it is high fence. You will never see this deer in the books.
I didn't say anything, I thought it looked like a preserve deer, not that if it was one, it would not bother me. There are still big deer taken in Michigan, just on select properties that have food plots and feed the deer year round.
The non-typical is very nice deer, but FAR FROM A WORLD RECORD! And that is all I will say.
Sorry I didn't scroll up enough, stopped at the 1st UP buck I saw. The NT will have a 145" gross typical frame with insane mass and nearly 20" of NT showing puts him in the low 160s far far from the world record (333" isn't it?)
You are right on one point though, we will never see him in the book, he is nowhere near the minimum size for entry. Gorgeous buck that I would love to call my own though.
My 30" Roland Ward Fallow Deer taken in the North West province in South Africa.
I used my 85lb PSE Omen with a Black Mamba Arrow and a 125g Rage broadhead. I took him at 16 meters and it was a beautiful heart shot
My best whitetail so far. Taken in November 2011.
One of my sons with his first deer, shot with ammo he loaded and used to sight in the rifle.
A local eight point I took with my .38-40 revolver. Used a 200 grain LFN with HS-6 behind it.
