Massive old bruiser...

Recommended Posts

Here's a cool old hometown buck that I got in to mount. A buddy killed him sunday morning. I definately feel this ancient old guy was on the downhill slide of antler growth.

I cannot even fathom the thought of seeing a deer like that.

heavy antlers. crazy for a buck to be that old. just doesn't happen around here unless you're deep up into the adirondacks. palmation is cool. i don't see that often even with really heaviest antlered bucks around here.

I wonder how many hunters had their eyes on him 3-4 years ago.

Another friend of mine found his previous years sheds back in March several miles from where he was killed...

Im assuming being you mentioned he was on a decline that those previous year sheds were bigger then those he was wearing when he got shot?

What an old warrior buck!!!  No doubt that he out played more than a few hunters during his lifetime.

As always you did an absolutely beautiful job with the mount. Really awesome work!

The sheds were chewed on a little but they grossed right around 150 as a mainframe 4×4. The beams and G3s were alot nicer on the sheds. He grossed like 153 nontyp...when killed.

Here's another 7.5 yr old hometown bruiser that I mounted this past season. He added about 10" or so from 2017...

Sweet G2's and sticker. I love big G2's.

Believe me...our age structure out here is on par with the rest of rural NYS. It's not all widespread QDM with big bucks everywhere. The local processors look like little buck nurseries during gun season. We just have enough cover to allow a few bucks to make it to maturity.
