Big Buck Contest?

Tue Dec 01, 2009 8:09 pm

Would anyone be interested in starting a Big Buck Contest? Just an idea to get more cubbers' activity in the Hunting/fishing forum. We could possibly have a champion of the year award :{_}: Like I said, just an idea.

Wow that buck looks more impressive than the supposed world record score that was shot with a bow here in Wisconsin last month

Seth,

If I were still teaching Vo-Ag, you would be a VERY welcome addition to the program. I'll wait (im)patiently for a pic of the trophy.

I wish!! This guy is no world record. I think he looks bigger in the pics because of perspective, i.e., the deer is in front of us so it looks bigger. We took a few with us in front of the deer but we didn't really like them. :wink: :lol:

I'm guessing he'll score mid- to high-140s.

Here's the pic of it. My hunch is this won't make the record after it's officially scored and deductions are taken. Still a tremendous buck.

Here's a link to some of the best reported bucks in Illinois. Take a look if you want to see some impressive deer. We've sure got big deer here in the Prairie State!

The trophy might be a bit on the heavy side, considering it'll be made of steel :lol:
I'll have some pictures when it's completed.
Now you can either post the pictures of your entry on this thread or pm them to me, with legit proof.
Good luck!

Scratch that, It can either be a plaque or a wooden trophy.
Someone dismantled the welding/metal shop, so it's locked up now. :evil: :censored:

Does it have to be killed this year? I've got two on our wall upstairs that i killed in high school. One scored 178. Of course they were both killed in Illinois.

It has to be killed this year, and it has to be whitetail.
A 178 huh? How about a picture to cure the curiosity? :D
