Will WI have the #1 typical by seasons end?

60 posts in this topic

Last week I saw some online footage of a monster here in WI. Good enough footage to know he's got more than enough antler to beat Milo's #1 typical but not good enough footage to tell if deductions will prevent that.

Of course he could get hit by a car, break tines, or because they figure him at 6.5 years he very well might make it through another season. Anyone else seen the video?

For sure its enough to make you drool. Later.

I have seen it. Pretty amazing. They claim it to be a wild deer on unfenced private property in Buffalo county Wisc. You can see the video on the field and stream magazine HSOforum. Has to have a good plan for evading hunters to have gotten that big.

I noticed in the vid that it is labeled as Buffalo County outfitters.

Those boys will figure out where he is and get someone close to him I bet. No question.

I got it in an email today. He is a stud, but who knows where he'll be in a couple of weeks.

I just peed a little. Jimminy Christmas! I hope someone puts an arrow through that creature! I really hope a bowhunter takes him. Might be tough to enter as a typical. I am guessing 218 3/8" net and 249 5/8" gross just for kicks. Anyone else want to play the guessing game? Also, he will get shot November 3rd.

What a monster! My only question is, is he a main fram 10 or tweleve? He is a 6x6 for sure but I think one a point on each side shares a common base on the main beam with another point. If it can be scored as main frame 12 point than I think he's got a shot, as a 10 point I doubt he is big enough.

regardless what a deer!

I'd pass on him and practice a little QDM, let him grow up. smile

Seriously, one of his parents must have been a moose!

I agree, he looks like he'll gross huge. But it appears some of his points share bases or come from the inside of the beam.

Its going to be like that Zaft buck from Edmonton. "New World Record" until the tape beats him up!

What a giant! Whether its this one or not, its only a matter of time before Milo has a contender. Seems to be more and more 200"+ typicals every year now. Lots of difference between 200 and a 213 though.

Neat to see.

That video kills me. I was born about 15 years too late.

My grampa had a small dairy farm 4-5 miles east of Mondovi. My sister and I spent a couple weeks every summer there. Unfortunately, he passed away when I was about 8, and my mom's 5 sisters were not an agreeable bunch.

Long story short, they pretty much gave away about 400 acres of prime land. If the banks would only give 8 year olds large amounts of money, I'd be one happy dude.

Yeah from what i see what looks like his G3 is actually coming off the base right with the G2, almost like the G2 is split right at or near the base. But what a rediculous monster....

Its more about the does genetics that the bucks. Only certain does will carry the gene for throwing large racked bucks. Dont get me wrong, the breeding buck needs to be quite large to pass on that kind of genetics, but its really more about the does father than the breeding buck. Just some info, that I dont think is very mainstream.

I just hope the nite hunters in that area dont do anything stupid. I have a few friends in mondovi and from what they tell me there seems to be no shortage of those guys in the area..

Hopefully the actual location of that deer will remain a mystery. I'd hate to see that thing shot illegally and become the property of the state. It would be nice a "hunter" was able to get it.

Its Called advertising...!

Buffalo County Outfitters want's all of you to go out there and

each spend $3,000.00 each to shoot a Deer...

I would not be surprised if they had it inside a Fence.

Musky is right.

Big fat advertisement really. Its got their official logo on the upper portion and specifically spells it out on the bottom.

I'd really doubt its a fenced animal. I know a few people that have hunted with them, and they are some hard workin guys I guess. BUT, one never knows.

Think they have seen an increase in phone calls since this video hit the web??? LOL

At least they don't charge per inch like a lot of those places. Kind of sad someone with deep pockets will probably shoot the next world record.

I'm sure that buck is the equivelent of Barry Bonds. It'll break records but did it really? I'm sure that thing is chalked full of growth hormoes and Yellow #5.

It is one heck of an animal no matter what! King of that forest!

    • I'll be getting out again on Tuesday with the bow. It has been very hard finding time to get out this year, between work and a 4 month old at home. Last time out I spent 12 hours in the blind and saw quite a few birds during the middle of the day. Had multiple times where I thought it was going to happen but the Toms wouldn't commit 100%. Making a small adjustment this go round and hoping things come together.
    • Was thinking for hunting and maybe put a plow on it to use at my place up north. Wouldn't be my main driver. Was thinking around 15K for budget but that was before I did much looking mostly on line so far. But might step up in price for the right rig. And a lot of that would depend if I liked the newer V6 engine and 5 speed auto or 6 speed trany and less miles etc. Just by looking at dealer prices on line I would think a guy could find a pretty nice late model for around 20 or less. I think if I bought a nicer later model I would drive it more as they look like they have made the interior a lot nicer and more comfortable than the older ones. On the other hand if I ran across a real clean older one with the in line 6 and not to many miles for the right price that would be an option to. The drawback to a newer shiny one it might take a while before I ran it down the brushy trail.

    • Our MN hunt this year was just about as easy as they come.  Sutty and I arrived at different times, he was late, and set up on opposite sides of the field as planned.  I could hear the birds gobbling in the valley below in their usual spot, and they sat there a long time in the cold.  Sutty couldn't see because he was on the back side of a finger of trees because he didn't want to spook anything out since he was late...  Eventually they got down and proceeded to sit on the far hill for a while longer.  I could see a 6 or so males, but suspected most were jakes, and a few hens.     Just when I was getting tired of waiting, about 8:30am, I saw one gobbler enter the field and walk straight towards Sutty's position.  As the bird got in front of Sutty, another nice gobbler came into the field.  I called to him but he wanted nothing to do with me.  Sutty shot the first bird, and the second one didn't know what happened.  Of course Sutty came running out of his blind and scared off the second bird that he didn't even know was there.      Sutty just bought a new house and had to head home asap to help his wife with packing things, and his daughter didn't seem too interested in shooting her own bird this year.  Now that she saw how ridiculously easy it is she probably won't be interested next time either.      I figured I should get to the edge of the field the birds were coming out on, and as I started moving my blind I bumped some hens that hadn't yet come up all the way out of the valley.   I finished getting my blind in place and sat a while, but it seemed we had scared the remaining birds out of the area, or maybe they were just laying low out of the wind.  In any case I went to get some lunch and let things settle down for a while.     After a couple hours of eating and casting for fish that weren't there, I decided I would head back up to sit in my blind.  Just as I reached the top of the hill to see into the field I saw three big gobblers walking across the field.  I ducked down and ran around the edge of the field out of their view to get closer.     I crawled up to about 10yd from the field edge, as far as I could go without being seen, and started calling.  They liked what they heard, but wouldn't commit right away.  After maybe 10 minutes of me cutting and purring, and all three of them strutting and gobbling out at 60-70 yards they started coming.  I couldn't see them well through the brush I was behind, and they didn't want to walk through it.  If I was at the edge of the field I could have shot them, they were within 40yd.  They proceeded to do a big arc along the field edge back to where I had just walked.     After a couple minutes of not seeing them I picked up my call, they gobbled, and then I saw them marching in where I had just walked.  When I last saw them going this direction I had shifted to face that way, I was now facing the tree I just had my back against, which put my butt in a thorn patch and the barrel to one side of the tree.  The birds started walking to the other side, so as they got behind the tree I eased the barrel to the side they were going to come out on.  They started coming up the other side back to the field they were just in and were too close together for a shot.  Finally one eased out in front and I let him have it.  He tipped backwards and rolled back downhill, and didn't even kick until I went over to grab him.  27 yards with the range finder after the fact.       Both birds turned out to be very nice old birds with long spurs.     Sutty's weighted 22lb 4oz, 10" beard, 1 3/16" spurs.  I believe this is his best turkey to date.     My bird weighted 25lb 8oz, 10" beard, 1 1/8" spurs.  My best turkey by weight and age.     Sutty and his bird.        Me and my bird.  I shot from one of the trees above this rock I think.      
    • Got it done in mn.  More to come when I get home.
    • Go to a license agent and buy one for your desired season. Season C, is on process thru May 2nd. Season D, is May 3rd thru May 9th. Season E, is May 10th thru May 16th. Season F, is May 17th thru May 31st. Season F also allows anyone with an unused tag from earlier season to hunt this period as well.   Hope this help PF.  
    • How do the over the counter licenses work this year? I missed last season but would like to get out this year even though I didn't apply for the lottery.
    • What exactly will you be using it for? Driving around the country with the top down, hunting the back woods, fording small creeks?   Do you have a particular budget to stick to?
    • at times the prop will stop on mine, usually when I move it to turn, need to tear into it sometime, I have use fishelectronics for misc. parts
    • I might have to get out and test drive a few and figure out what I like and don't like. Definitly not buying new so Ill narrow it down a bit and then wait for that cherry to show up.
