A buck called "Flyer"...

WNY Bowhunter

Recommended Posts

I just put the finishing touches on a heartbreaker buck that I was hoping to put my own tag on last fall. As fate would have it, a late night of skinning and caping other people's bucks caused me to skip out on the second morning of season and this deer was shot on a neighboring property a couple hundred yards away from my stand where I was sitting the previous morning. The last pic was from a series of pics my cell cam sent me that morning. I had no idea what they were dragging out until I met the guy at the local butchershop and he approached me about caping a deer for him that he may end up mounting. When he pulled into my driveway and I dropped the tailgate on his truck...my jaw dropped too. Really wasn't expecting it to be "my deer".  So it goes during gun season in NY...

What a great buck!!!

Over the decades, I've missed out on a few bucks I "should" have killed. But I always figured, it just was not meant to be. And I'm good with that.

As always, you did a beautiful job on the mount!!! Your work is second to none.

Wow what a beast.    Great mount too!!!

Any age or dressed weight to report?

Idk if they weighed him? He was a good sized deer... I'd guess he dressed 180-185# range. For age, I guess 5.5, no pics of anything similar looking in '20 but and I'm pretty certain I have pics of him in '19 at 3.5 yo. For sake of argument, we'll say that he's as old as he's going to ever get, lol.

Give us the spread and score. U had to have put a tape on him.

He's 20.5" inside. l believe he gross scored around 153 non-typical with the flyer (scored him a day or two after he was killed).
