I watched 4 in a feild the other night...one fork horn, another whihc might turn out to be a 6? and fairly decent 6? and another bruiser, already!!!!.....this deer was notciably larger and had more mass than the others. When I beeped the horn and he lifted his head I almsot dropped the optics. Too bad it's posted![sad]
I was told this could have been a fallow deer, but two weekends ago I saw the largest sitka deer I have ever seen at asseteque. Monster, at least 100 pounds if not 125, and a beautiful velvet rack. Not sure if you call it a brow tine , or what , but its first point that goes out over his nose was atleast 8 inches, with a very well developed back portion of his antlers. Basically, a very impressive animal. The deer had spots like a raindeer.
Had seven bucks in the backyard last week. Biggest single group I have ever seen in the area. One was a nice 10 pt with at least 20" spead. Saw some big ones last year this time of the year the they disappeared.
Same deal for me. Went to leave for work this morning to find 4 bucks in my backyard. The smaleest a 4 and 6, while the other two were definitley on the wall. The 8 pointer was the first I saw and then about t3n yards behind him a huge 10 point raised his head out of the orchard grass and he was still way wider than the 8. Can't wait til opening day.
How much bigger will the racks grow, length and girth? I mean this 10 pointer was already huge, given the rubbing he's still going to be a massive animal.
