Well I got this on my cel phone today. They said this deer was shot in Ithaca/Cayuga Heights area last week. Said its a 16 point and close to 200 inches. I don't know anything else about it.

Wow! That is a beautiful buck! I Don't hunt in Ithaca, I hunt in Watkins Glen but someone sent me this picture saying it was from Odessa. I would give it 180-185"

Yup that's big.

If it is then i bet its got a shot at the state record.

I wonder if it was the Cornell Campus buck?
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

I don't think it would top the state record looks like to may deductions for a typical, but still a amazing deer.

Wow!! Great Buck indeed.
I love those split brow tines and it's got some good mass too!
Never seen one of those Big Boy's hunting.
Nice job!

lets not get too excited until its proven as a NY buck.

I have heard rumors about this buck....from what I have heard there are some people in Cayuga Heights all fired up that someone shot the deer, I guess they had been watching and feeding the buck for a number of years....regardless it is huge.

Deer not tagged?
The woods are lovely, dark and deep, but I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.

I got the same picture sent to me on my phone it said the buck was shot in an ithaca cemetary at night with buckshot. Not sure if its true but would explain why not many people have heard about the buck.

My son lived on Cayuga lake in Ithaca and let me tell you I believe that is a New York deer. If they ever open hunting in the city of Ithaca you would see a lot of deer of that size taken. I know what I am talking about because I have seen them myself. If you don't believe me ,just take a ride through and around Ithaca and see for yourself. Be careful if you ever are there at this time of the year because the bucks are running does all over the place and you will get to see some of the biggest buck that you will ever see in New York State.
