Yea, he hunts in Greene County Ohio about 30 minutes from me. Lucky dog.

When I took my doe from Friday night to the butcher, there was another Ohio TOAD in the cooler. Looked kinda like this Beatty buck but taller tines, and a MASSive body, probably just as big.

Who says Ohio doesn't have big bucks!

with a bow?

I killed one in Illinois that weighed 240 as it fell. Kill zone looked big as a truck tire. Big Grin

No, that 240# buck was with a shotgun/slug at about 50 yards. I had seen him several times in bow season, but never in range and always in the dark. Gun season that year was in the peak of the rut, when he finally started moving in daylight.

I hunt very small farms around here - when I shot him 3 other hunters stepped into view to see what I got.

I know I posted a pic here on AR somewhere at the time, but now I can't find a single one.

I try to keep my pics arranged in photobucket so I can find them quickly but my files there have grown into volumes. Big Grin

anyway, here's some pics of my big one;







I've seen a couple as big as Mike's buck but couldn't close the deal. boohoo

See if you can find that pic. I'd like to see him. Smiler

ncboman,

Nice one!

I have looked here at work pretty extensively and cannot find the pictures of the big one that got weighed. I have his horns on the wall in my office and the tag says 2000. Armed with that I will try to do a better search at home. But I think 2000 was the year I got divorced, and my wife took the computer, so I might be SOL.
I remember sending pics to my brothers, and will ask them to look also. I posted some on-line, but I was hosted at huntingpictures.net or summat that went belly up for a while. When it came back up my stuff was gone.

I took one big buck some years prior to the one in 2000 that was never weighed. He was estimated at 240 field dressed and looked as big as the one I weighed. The weighing was done on a farmer's scale and could easily be off by 5-10 pounds.

I did not get a digital camera until last year, so I may have a 35mm picture of him somewhere.

These Ohio deer are big-bodied and they are rolling in fat since they get all the soy beans and corn they can eat. That buck had an inch and a half of fat all over him, with maybe two inches of back-fat.

When I shot the big one the farmer took one look at him and said "you didn't get the big one". He maintains that he's shot bucks that field dress right at 300 pounds. That'd be about 375 on the hoof! I personally have not seen one bigger than the two big ones I shot.

Here's a pic that doesn't do him justice, but it's the only digital image I can find. At this point he'd been hanging a week and was on the way to my house for cutting/wrapping. That's a full-size 1999 Suburban he's hanging out of. I'd stopped by at work to borrow a digital camera to take the pic. Canuck will confirm that I can't take pictures for $hit!



Again, this was a shotgun kill, and does not belong on this forum!
