I say this buck at the start of bow season and have been hunting for a while. I sat in the stand for two days all day. I set up over a few scrapes and he came in the first day, but he was about 45 yards. The next evening he came in and checked the scrapes about 15" and I got an arrow off. He weighed in almost 190# and will score around 150+. The next day I was hunting for a doe and I saw what possible could be a state record buck. The current state record was taken off the ranch last year and this one is a little bigger. I should of passed on this deer, but he looked a lot bigger blowing steam out his nose.




Here is a quial I shot from the stand.

This one I shot this year, but we couldn't find him. The quail dogs found him last weekend.








I didn't have a digital when most of the big deer were taken

Very nice! Good job, I would have a hard time getting a bow shot off on something like that, I mean the adreanalin must have been a pumping!

Time to get your wife or girl friend a tag, & take them after the record book deer you saw. I always think it's cool when a kid, or a 1st time hunter bags a monster. anyway great job, it's your good!

Ya I was a little shaky. The fog rolled in off the river and steam was pouring out of his nose.
Usually I see them come in. This guy just appeared out of the thickest cover. I didn't even have time to count his points. Not a bad deer. One of the biggest I have taken with a bow. I'm using a wooden recurve bow the rest of season.

is that a bobcat?

Are they pests or something like that?

Yes it is a bobcat. They are a pest to me. It's amazing how many turkey and quail one cat can kill. I shoot all the state of OK will let me. I have a few stuffed.

Nice, job! You showed your hunting ethics by passing on that 45yd shot, and were rewarded later on. Love the Quail pic!

Right at 20"

I found a new way to judge the spread in the field. If the rack is wider than the ears is 17"+

Looks like you made Pope&Young.

Nice buck!

I have no experience with archery so correct me if I'm wrong ok.

That quail shot looks almost like a friggin impossible lucky shot!!! I mean, NICE shot.

Can you make shots like that consistently?

What range did you take the bird at?
Link Posted: 11/17/2003 6:09:35 PM EDT
Damn nice! 190# in OK is huge! Were you hunting around Norman?

I was hunting in major county near Okeene.
There are a few big deer out there.
Link Posted: 11/18/2003 4:04:51 AM EDT
Very nice, especially with the bow.

I wouldn't have passed on him at all.

realhunters only use their knife...



nice deer

Nice shooting!

It takes skill to pop the big boys- you done good. I'm guessing he was maybe 4 years old?

Mind telling me what bow setup you were using?

I'm using an old PSE 65# with a 5" overdraw and 25" arrows so it is pretty fast. I only have one sight for 5-35 yards. I use 100grain thunder heads tips. I hit a huge deer with a mechinical broadhead opening day and lost him. Never use them again.His fron leg was back and I think I nicked the sholder blade and it threw the path of he shot off. I found him 2 weeks later. My deer aging bood says he is over 5 years old. The funny thing is he isn't the dominent buck in that area. The next day I saw his daddy. He looked like a typical 12 point and a possible record deer. I hung 5 stands over where I saw him to have the wind perfect. I will be hunting this guy with a recurve wooden bow. Everything will have to be perfect to get this big boy. After rut he will go nocternal and I will lose him til next season.
