I killed this 8 point a week ago on public land. It stepped out of a thicket on the first morning of my hunt at around 8:00. He has 21.5' beams, 18' inside spread, 9' G2's. I rough scored him to be 127' and some change.
My buddy killed this 13 point in the delta region this morning on public land with his bow. The typical side has 5 points and the other side has 8. Just as a reference if typical he would have been roughly 19' wide. The good main beam is 22'. The deer weighed 260lbs. His neck was 22' out of rut.
Got my first bow kill of the season. Not a monster, but still my best bow kill. He's an 8 point 14 2/8 wide.
I am very pleased with the mount. I made a phone call this past week and will be getting an official score pretty soon.
Got a call from my taxidermist today for he had just finished putting my deer on the form. I wanted him to call me to see which way I wanted to position the ears. I chose to do the ears back. They aren't in their final position, just ballpark for he was letting me look at the different positions so they aren't exactly aligned. He still has some painting and touch ups to do, but I'm liking it so far. I know it's not my work, but there is no way I'm going to experiment on a deer like this.
Anyone finding any good sheds they would like to post. Always curious to see the ones that got away.
I killed this 10 point in Issaquena County on December 16. It was killed on public land and green scored 169 6/8 gross, 165 7/8 net. The inside spread is 21.5 and main beams are 24 5/8. The deer is extremely symmetrical with the only major deduction being the brow tines. The brows are 10' and 8.5' roughly. The G2's and G3's are 11' &amp;amp;amp;amp; 10' roughly as well. He was aged at 5 1/2 years old and weighed 220 lbs. I may not look excited in the picture, but trust me you have no idea. We were having technical difficulties with the camera and it was hard to time the flash. I am truly grateful for this deer and would like to share him with others. I even nicknames him 'Gratitude' to represent my gratefulness. It was killed with a rifle and the wound you see is an exit wound, for it was quartered to me a little. So it's not as far back as you may think. Happy Hunting, Eddie
