Barnes,

We hunt a lot of areas like that too. Putting on drives runs the doe out, but the bucks are usually too smart for that trick. My sister did get a nice six point, her first buck. But other than that not much luck.

For me he would be a wallhanger. The numeric score doesn't really matter to me.

Yup if that is the same deer he is a little wider than what I said and does have longer mains. Hard to tell from the other shot since it didn't show from the front. Nice buck...I hope you get him.

The other night my boy and I were spotting and saw a 10 pointer in our clover plot that dwarfed this sucker. I put my trail camera in the corner of that field and hope I get him.

If I take the experts' advice, I will hang a stand between the buck's feeding and bedding area. I looked at a topo map and came up with nothing. Just thousands of acres of big woods

the score dont really matter to me, (dont get me wrong, I would love to have a 150" buck on the wall) But I know that if that deer walked in front of me, hnd I already have a spot on the wall picked out for him.

I think most of us feel that way big daddy. 120, 130 or 140 that is a very nice buck.

I agree that he's a really nice buck. I'd love to have him on the wall. The pictures will have to do for now.

High 120s. I shot a nice 8 point with 11 inch g2s and 9-10 inch g3s with 19 inch spread and around 23 inch main beams. Thought for sure he was going to make the 140 mark. Ended up at 133. Here's the link to his pictures. Nice deer regardless.
