Musky Buck

State Record ?

31 posts in this topic

I don't like to bring up scoring bucks but I keep getting an email from a friend and they found a typical buck dead during rifle season and it scored 205. What is our typical record by archery,rifle,musket ? I would post the pic., but the person holding it I wouldn't want to throw that all over the net. I don't think he'd appreciate it and without his permission I wouldn't do it. Just curious.

Ok, might take some doing, I could e-mail it to you, just don't post until I get an Ok which might be tough to do, maybe not. I know the guy holding it, actually played baseball with him for years, but lost touch since retirement. They found it dead and couldn't tell if it had been poached or an arrow or what caused the death, I would say it is every bit what the Breen buck was. What is crazy is if it truly scored 205, 4 miles from where it was found came the 2005 state record by musket, non-typical however, and I can't get a bite on selling my land in that area, is there a source on here for selling land, I would think there is. Need your e-mail address.

Musky, you can't start a thread like this without posting the pictures, serious violation.

Sorry Dave, should try to get permission first my bad, I just wanted to know what the typical record is because I thought it was more than 205. My uncle told me it was scored at 205 but was it really. It has a huge rack. I actually figured most people have seen it already. BigLake has seen it, so it's out there, I just owe the guy holding it some privacy. Would love to post it, but maybe someone on here knows him better than myself and could post it with his permission, I would have no problem e-mailing it to individuals, just don't want to be the reason he is getting maybe even calls or bothered by people. So 202 is the record, thanks, now I know that this deer had a shot possibly. There is a running rumor around that an archery hunter wounded it and never found it, but who knows.

B Amish is correct.

I think I posted it in fact. Got it from someone to post up.

I'll believe the story when its in print somewhere with some solid info behind it.

Seems to be another case like the other hundred record bucks sent around the internet that never surface again.

where on the site? get an offical B&C measurement to measure it and see what it scores. 205" is a big deer!

the story is true. i don't know if the score is 100% accurate, but the buck is real and was found dead last fall.

i was at a party with some friends a few months ago and got to see it. i'd say close to 200" or better. the guy showing it off said it was 202 or something like that. thing had like 28" beams, HUGE! however, the person showing it wasn't the guy holding it in the prior picture, but i'm sure it was the same woodpile!

Hate to be naysayer, and without some point of reference I could be off a little, but as an official scorer for 20 years, no way that nets over 200". Big buck though and I'd love to see an official score.

I dont think it grosses 205.

If it was truly a state record potential, I'd sure think we would have seen something about it in some publication by now.

Or the guy is Mitch Rampola's cousin, and isnt going to ever officially score it or display it. laugh

That's what I mean, lots of people throwing numbers around, it is quite a specimen. Knowing the guy holding it, I don't doubt the unfortunate truth about the deer. I guess I questioned my uncle on this 205 thing and that's why I wanted to find out what the state record was so if I saw official verification I'd know where that buck stood just for my own curiosity. Wish the guy holding it would've had the chance to harvest it.

    • I wanted to do a little write up on my Colorado elk hunt I went on the other week, a group of 7 of us went out for a week, 4 muzzy hunters, 2 bowhunters and 1 hiker/photographer/packer.  We have family that has a cabin in the area we hunted so we planned on staying there 1 night before we were going to camp for 6 nights in the wilderness.  A couple quick pics of what my meals and gear were for the week, after hours of reading I tried as hard as possible to keep it around the 100 calories per ounce for my food I think in the end I was around 105 after I got done with all my weighing measuring, the only thing not in there was my Mountain House meals.   

      IMG_0463.JPGIMG_0469.JPGIMG_0470.JPG

      With having so many of us going we didn't need to double up on a lot of the items, water filtration, first aid, rope etc.  The night before we went out we took the scale out and made everyone get on we all average about 60 pounds with water except my father in law which at one  point was almost at 100 pounds and we slimmed it down to about 80.

      After sitting down the night before and finalizing our plan we were going to hit a trail head up in the morning and hike back about 3-4 miles and make camp, based off of the maps and Google earth we saw water and large enough areas to get off the trails to get in some decent hunting areas....that was our first big mistake which we regretted. 

      We got up early ate a good breakfast and hit the trailhead, most in the group were early 30s with my father in his 50s being the oldest but we were all in decent shape...so we thought it didn't take more then 15 minutes of up hill walking at 9,000' of elevation with 60 pounds packs to humble us very quickly.  There was a lot of stopping as we made it down the trail as our lungs go acclimated to the thinner air but the amazing scenery made the trek a little easier.

      IMG_0473.JPGIMG_0475.JPG

      The trail took us about a mile in before we reached the wilderness and at that point we had another 2-3 miles back, as we got into the wilderness the terrain became steeper and steeper and our pace got slower and slower, it took us almost 4 hours to make it a little over 2 miles in, at that point we finally found a very tiny water source, we became concerned at that time not seeing any water, we checked our map and saw a creek about another half mile up so we headed on got there and it was dry as a bone.  We looked again and saw another spot about a mile up we walked about half a mile then split up with half the group relaxing, eating, and scouting and a few other going to check for water.  The area had great spots for a camp, elk sign everywhere but 0 water, the other guys came back and said it was dry up further to, we didn't want to walk a mile each day for water and didn't exactly trust the water source either so we decided we were safer to turn around instead of keep going deeper into the wilderness hoping to find water.  The trailhead at the start of the wilderness split off one direction so we sent one guy down that way to check one last water source before we totally scrapped that area and went back to the cabin.  He ran into a couple local hikers who said all the smaller creeks and drainages were all dried up and they hadn't had rain in awhile at that point we packed the trucks back up headed back to the cabin and ordered pizza.  8 miles of brutal walking for the day and we were right back to where we were at the start of the day.

      I will be planting garlic for the 1st time this year. I'm thinking of planting in a terrace that is not fenced in. Is there any varmints or deer that I have to worry about?

    •  Good Luck out there. Went up this past weekend to to mow the trails, etc. and I even brought the boat motor with to fish but the wind never quit blowing! Hopefully I'll give it a shot in a few weeks.

    • We had our first Junco arrive this weekend. Hope that is not a sign of the type of winter we are in for 
    • I made a sled for my pop up that pulls everything out on the ice then I put the shelter over the sled and the lights are on the sled. 
    • Last week I washed my Brute Force in preparation for an up-coming trip to a hunting camp and of course one can't go with it looking like dump. The black plastic portion looked faded and I wanted to refresh it. I decided to try using Armor-all vinyl cleaner and was surprised at the outcome. It looked like new again. Might be worth a try. 
    • Yeah, I know. I was just adding to it. 
    • I reckon its getting close to that time to replant!!!!!!!!!!!!!
