    You are on fire dude! That’s a great VA buck! We need a TEAM VA next year…..{#emotions_dlg.mathews_thumbs_up}

    Haha AMEN! – we hit on that last year :) I think us VA Boys could give those Mid-West Boys a run!

    He was a young deer at 2.5 and about 125Fd. I have been letting bucks like this go for years on this property as they are like rats but I very seldom see them the following years and now I have some others hunting in this spot :(

    Im watching for your stud this year as well!

    My Buck killing skills are sick – too bad there not contagious!!!

    Wow! Awesome genetics there! I would have guessed 3.5.

    Maybe I’ll wrap a tag around one this year. My lucks gotta run out sometime. Only one or two here at home that I’ll loose an arrow at this year, down year for sure. Sure looking forward to the Illinois trip though, that’ll be the best shot!

    There are some decent deer in this spot where I hunt. Good body weights but racks not so good. Don’t see many over 135″ even 4.5 yo’s.  He could be 3.5 but IMO he had a very thin body and neck for a 3.5yo in mid oct and long long legs no girth (lot of young sign) and with the usual body weights in this spot he was small (Pic shows his body better than it was…). The more I evaluate him and the pics Im starting to agree with you maybe 3.5 max. Friends that I take here always get a nice deer if they wait… its very possible to get a 200# 3.5 yo with 120″. I recall BloodBath96 (Jason) kiling one a few years back that was big bodied with 127″. Sometimes body weight fools ya – it does me.

    Glad to get him! Now Trophy Hunting… :)

    Congrats on the awesome Virginia buck!  I am still trying to get my first bow buck and this is probably my 12th year bow hunting.

    How nice of that Fox to confirm your kill. :)   I loved that part of the story.

    Congrats on a very nice buck.
