Here's a big deer.

Postby Trent M » Fri Jan 29, 2010 1:15 pm

Here is the buck I killed in 2006. Its the biggest 8-pointer I've seen. Those long tines are both over a foot in length and I can't get my hands around the bases. This one scores 150-0/8 inches NET! We grow 'em big here in Illinois!!

Lucky.
All the deer down here have to keep small racks to be able to walk through these swamps.

What we have here are alot of soybeans and corn, along with ample hardwood forests for cover right on the edge of these fields. I do consider myself very lucky to be hunting deer in Illinois.

We grow some pretty big bucks here in Michigan too, but most of us don't shoot them. They are just to hard to drag out of the woods. Plus it's pretty difficult to load them in a pick-up bed with out scratching the paint all up.

Yah, he is from the great state of Michigan. I'd really like to know the story there. Myself, I don't think the deer is a fake. Mitch at one time was the head of the scorers for Commemorative Bucks of Michigan, the official scoring body in Michigan. His reputation as a deer hunter is well known with many record book whitetails to his credit. I can't believe that with his knowledge of whitetails, scoring and debunking fakes that he would try to offer a fake or altered set of antlers for the scrutiny that would be involved in a world record entry in the Boone and Crockett record book.
I never met him but I have talked to him on the phone before, a few years prior to his infamous whitetail. A buck that I had entered in the record book here in Michigan was scored by a scorer that had some issues and I was told that I may want to have it re-scored. CBM frowns on having a buck scored more than once to keep guys from "shopping" for the best score. Anyway, on the phone he sounded like a good guy but than I guess Jeffery Damaher might have too! Since he said that he would not offer his buck for official scoring by B&C, it seems like he has dropped off the face of the earth. You never hear anything about or from him anymore. My guess is he is still knocking down some big bucks but not sharing them with anyone.

In order to grow these big bucks in Michigan, we have to start them a little earlier so that they can try to match the ones in Illinois!! :lol:
