Took this big 5x5 as he was trailing a doe on Nov. 6th. Apparently he was a fighter as he has several tines and the main beams broken off short.

Very nice! That is on the list, I hear whitetail tastes alot better than mule deer. He is a beauty and thanks for not say 10 pointer. That bugs me for some reason.

P.s.
Quite an accomplishment for a traditional bow hunter. Impressive.

Broken tines or not, still definitely a stud. Good job.

Awesome job! That is cool you did it old school. (not saying you are old)

Drhorsepower: I killed my first whitey a few years ago in Montana, and if I would have known then how good they taste, I would have bought a few doe tags too!

Ruttin, Well I'm no spring chicken. We used to hunt Utah every year for mulies outside of Moab. Had pretty fair success and a great time. Always wanted to hunt the Book Cliffs but never got it done. The last 6 or 7 years we've been hunting Wyoming as I can't get my hunting partner to travel the distance to Utah anymore. We'll be heading to the Bighorns in about 3 weeks for mule deer. Started out hunting with a recurve and then hunted with a compound in the late 70's but went back to hunting with the recurve in 1983 and have never looked back.

I purposely called him a 5x5 so as not to irritate my western friends here on the site. You know;... When in Rome do as the Romans do. But I do have to make a conscientious effort not to call deer eight pointers or ten pointers, because here in Wisconsin they are referred to as eight and ten pointers.

Yes, same in Missouri. It's funny that it bugs me when they're called 5x5s. It should be a rule that mule deer are 5x5 and whitetail are the total.

That is a good idea MOHunter because I have to agree. I remember the first time my Buddy from Oregon told me about a 4 point he shot and I had to ask him why he shot a dink. When I learned it was in fact 4 points on each side it made more sense. To each his own but this is a dandy buck no matter what you call him. I also saw a lot of deer here in Michigan that were busted up last year. Way more than normal.

That is a great buck! Congratulations! I've always thought it was an unwritten rule mulies and blacktail 4x4, whitetail 8 pointer?
Again way to go!
