  1. Was measuring the cape for this deer yesterday and was blown away by the size...8" eye to nose x 23.5 x 26 x 30! They said he dressed 241.5 at the processors two days after it was killed. I wrote it off as an exaggeration but maybe not? My friend in the pic is 6'4"...
  2. Conflicting reports on the topic. I myself believe the second theory... https://www.deeranddeerhunting.com/blogs/dan-schmidt-deer-blog-whitetail-wisdom/whitetail-antlers-the-hole-truth https://www.24hourcampfire.com/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php/topics/4950440/Re_Whitetail_deer_antler_beam_
  3. Pretty sure it was just an injury to the growing antler in velvet.
  4. Capes vary alot. I try to match as close to the size/coloration of the original as possible when I need to use a replacement cape. I can pick up on the subtle little differences easily but most people are clueless. The difference in the capes from early October til late season are huge. I like mid October the best. Just mounted this one up over the weekend...gorgeous Oct 9th bow kill with a double throat patch.
  5. I bought one of these for my big 170" deadhead in my shop. Works great... https://www.rack-bracket.com/
  6. I'm hoping both are still alive. Going to camp out at the corn tonight and see what happens. If they do make it I'll have to reevaluate my foodplot strategies for next year.
  7. Yeah, I had some nice pics of him working a scrape on 11/1/17...next time he showed up a few days later his eye was swelled shut. I'm excited to see what he could do at 6 yrs old. I've only had two other bucks make it to that age at this property. That's over 11 yrs and many dozens of bucks on cam over that time.
  8. He only grew one antler last year at 4 yrs old...was a pretty decent buck at 3.5...lost his eye in early November.
  9. The pics were from 5:19 yesterday evening, that's pretty close. Came back through in the morning too. He should make it unless he messes up. The hunting pressure around has died off to almost nothing.
  10. Haven't had this guy on cam since mid January. Glad to see he's still breathing...
