How many points?

Recommended Posts

This big guy just showed on our camera a few days ago. The pics aren't completely clear, but we are trying to determine how many points he has. What do you think? And what the heck, what do you think he might score? smile

Points? Score? Who cares he's a shooter!

Tough call cause he's got so much junk, and I'm sure some are scorable, some maybe not. Counted 20 the first time, 16 the next lol.

Mid 170's - mid 180's is my guess. Hope you tag him so we can find out

It would be easier to count the points if you told us where this deer was. GPS coordinates would be best. Kidding. wink

I counted 17 but it's hard to tell if there are some smaller stickers on the right base. Great looking deer for sure.

I can tell you he's somewhere south of Bemidji and north of Mankato. smile We had pictures of a 12 point with a drop tine on his right beam last year and from the shape of the mainframe it looks to be the same buck with a lot more this year. Never saw him during the firearm season but he showed up on camera during muzzleloader so we felt good he made it through the season. He's leading a charmed life under the cover of night, we'll probably have to step on him during a drive to see him.

I'd guess in the 150's. I shot a 171 gross a couple years back that had G'2 measuring 11" I had quite a bit of deduct so he netted 151. Nice wide but not super tall. Either way a very nice animal good luck crossing paths with him.

Well, it was a bittersweet day today. The big guy hit the ground this morning....for the neighbors. I got the confirmation picture this afternoon. I'm stopping over tomorrow to see it for myself, I'll be able to share details like number of points and inside spread tomorrow night. I'll get some pics to share but they will not be in the field. I do have a field pic to share, but don't want to share the identity of the lucky hunter. If someone with better skill than me could scramble the hunter or omit him from the pic, I could send you the pic to share. Thanks.

Trail cam pics never do the mature bucks justice. Sorry to hear you didn't get him, but at least you got to see him up close. Just think if that boy had some tine length!

WOW!! That is one impressive specimen. I bet he has more kids running around than Adrian Peterson.

Do we get to hear which county?? Taken in a stand or doing a drive??

    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
