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??

    • And the bacon gets cooked before the aspargus is overcooked?    Just wondering...
    • Pork, the other white meat.  Just the aromas have the foreheads running for cover this way!! Is that politically incorrect or...
    • My goal this year was to build my own arrows. We will see if they work on September 1st. 
    • You may want to wait a bit longer for it to cool down more.  Dry and hot with fertilizer on it may just burn it up the rest of the way.  This is been one bad year for lawns let alone new sod. 🙁
    • hey guys. Wife and I moved into our new home the other month, and our lawn was looking great. We went out of town for a few days in July and came back to our grass almost all completely brown. I've been water it every evening for roughly 3-4hrs/night. The grass is slowly starting to come back, but not to what it was. And I don't believe it ever will. Our entire yard in SAND and little dirt, we were not able to put down black dirt before due to timing. My question is this: When can I put down weed n feed? or what kind of fertilizer do i need/able to use? or do I not treat my lawn with any chemical this season? 
    • Gotta love the blue-cheese butter!👍
    • So I sent an email to Evinrude  and made a phone call to an authorize Etech mechanic and evidently my chain was being yanked a bit.    I just thought if anyone here has ever heard of that
    • sweet corn on the smoker and ribeyes on the grill last night, with tater salad...  good eats...
    • Hello from the NW Angle!   On the Minnesota side, spinners and crawler harnesses are still the preferred method of walleye fishing, with the hot colors being pink/gold, orange/gold and orange/chartreuse. Walleye are being caught off of structure scattered in the mud between 20 and 30 feet. Down riggers and deep running crank baits have also been productive.   Canadian walleye are being caught in channels off of islands and along reefs in 18 to 25 feet of water. Both bottom bouncers with a crawler harness and a jig with minnow or shiner have both been successful in Canadian waters.   Musky fishing success has increased in the past week. Fish are being caught on crank baits and blade baits. With water temps in the low 70’s muskies are favoring rocks near weeds.    Our very own, Travis Palmquist, released a 54.5" musky yesterday!   Fall is a great time for trophy fishing!   We hope to see you soon,   Sunset Lodge
