This leads me to a question I am sure some of you 365 white tail guys/gals will know. How the heck did a deers antlers get that huge?!? I see that they are managing the area, for larger bucks. Is that all you have to do is get a couple farms to not shoot basket racks and your get the Buck from the Scent-Lok Logo? There has to be more factors, right? As for coyotes taking down that deer, I would think it would more likely be stray dogs to take a big bodied deer like that down. Although coyotes would likely be the ones to eat him. Hey and if that is off base someone set me straight.

Louismanka and everyone: the way bucks get this big is, let them grow. Genetics and food are great, etc. but a two-year-old buck will NEVER, EVER get this big. This deer is 7 years old if he's a day. If you want to "manage" for bigger bucks, pass 'em up when they're still young and their antlers are smaller... That said, what a magnificent animal! Man, if one that big ever surprised me in the field, I'm afraid I'd keel over and die!

Regarding SD_Whitetail_Hntr's comment that, "this should bring a lot of pride to the community", can you imagine how incredibly lame a community would have to be to require a dead deer to bring them, "pride". Jeez.

I can imagine the depressed citizens of the, "community", strutting around with their chests out announcing loudly to anyone who will listen, "We had a really big dead rotting deer here!", "So you'd better show us some respect".

I mean talk about low expectations. If only a big dead rotting deer carcass was found near my community. I'd be so so so proud.

What a crock! Not a wild buck in my opinion!!! Take a good look at picture 6, all of the left ear is present. Now look at picture 9 half an ear! Most pics the left ear is hidden from view! Why? Certainly couldn't be due to the fact the buck had an ear tag, could it? But what I know? Other than the fact they would like to sell the antlers to Cabela's for $200,000. Just one of the more recent record buck debacles What a shame!!

Truth Seeker,

I can understand your skepticism, as a deer like this is for sure a rarity in the wild. I am the one holding the gross 200in. deer inside of this incredible MI deer. I have met the guy that is in possession of this animal and he seems to be nothing, but a true sportsman as well as a gentlemen.

The rumors of the 200k are unfounded unless something has changed in the last few weeks that I am unaware of. Lets think about this. People, have seen this deer, they have a broken shed, It was found eaten and decayed, by a lady that doesn't hunt walking her dog, and has obviously been laying there for a while, they called the CO out asap. Do I know a 100% that this deer is legit? No, because I did not find it myself. I can however, assure you that the man that has it and people that I know, that know of him hold him in hi regard. Everything I know to be true is that this deer is legit as could be without me finding it myself. Just read his quote in pic #20.

What I think is a crock, are people accusing folks of misdoings with little or no facts of the story!

Have a good day, Pez

P.S. bjhonson, that deer in question netted 193in. if that helps!lol

from Truth Seeker wrote 4 years 4 weeks ago

Senior Pez, LOL!
Fact is, you don't know, just as you said. Fact is, it has half an ear! Fact is, it had a full ear when found. Fact is, no C.O. was ever called asap. A permit was issued later by the county sheriff (as stated above)! Not that it would make a difference. I'm not going to ask you to explain anything, because you simply don't know and your not involved. If you were a thinking man you would asses the situation and draw your own conclusions. Not just what you hear, or what your told. Think a little deeper before you speak!! This situation is about personal monetary gain!!! Don't kid yourself! If anyone can provide a few game camera pics clearly showing an untagged left ear the skeptics will fade away! Shouldn't be a problem since so many have seen this buck on "heavily hunted properties" One last tip for you Pez, you may want to shave, I thought that was little Hitler holding that rack above it!! LOL! seriously!

Hopefully he has passed on plenty of his genetics! One thing I don't believe is those shed pictures on page 13 and 14. Those are from another deer!

I OWN property and live on Hogan Hwy. 1-2 miles west, cumulatively my family owns over 500 acres within 5 miles and it contains most of the woods in the area. Post your pic from 2 years ago. Guarantee it's not it! Fact is it's ear was cut in half, ask yourself why? We hunt the same area huh? This is a small town! I know of 2 farms that are leased around here and I know the owners very well (long time family friends). Maybe I'll introduce myself in October.

Gnmu - I said "tend." I would much rather hunt in the northern woods, but the rich farmlands and milder winters, especially in the south central and southwestern Michigan, combined with QDM put a lot more big deer on the buck poles.

I hope someone saved some DNA from that brute. It would be nice to learn just what controls massive antler growth.

That's what happens to bucks when they're not shot as a spike or basket rack that walks by as stated in an abovepost. Most lilely died from poachers bad placed bullet and died an slow agonizing death.

UMM No! There are places for other types of records. I'm not a hunter and even I know that! Do some research. It's just that it is so AMAZING in size it's almost unbelievable! But...you CAN believe IT!

Hey, what an exceptional deer! I look forward to seeing it as a potential new photo for the series..."World's Greatest Whitetails" collector cards for the Michigan's Set! at worldsgreatestwhitetails.com It goes to show you...wildlife is never static! Given the opportunity, many areas that haven't produced world-class bucks, can and do under sometimes adverse conditions!

Congrats on the find, hopefully they get enough money to buy Truth Seeker out of a great community. It should be cheap, considering they would get it for what he's truly worth, not what he thinks he's worth.

Louismanka and everyone: the way bucks get this big is, let them grow. Genetics and food are great,منتديات etc. but a two-year-old buck will NEVER, EVER get this big. مسجات This deer is 7 years old if he's a day. وسائط If you want to "manage" for bigger bucks, توبيكات pass 'em up when they're still young and their antlers are smaller... That said, what a magnificent animal! Man, ماسنجر if one that big ever surprised me in the field, I'm afraid I'd keel over and die!

they act like he shot it, he didnt so he shouldnt be able to claim it as a state record. the record book is for people who leagly take game with weapons, not find them dead.

Gnmu - I said "tend." I would much rather hunt in the northern woods, but the rich farmlands and milder winters, especially in the south central and southwestern Michigan, combined with QDM put a lot more big deer on the buck poles.

Senior Pez, LOL!
Fact is, you don't know, just as you said. Fact is, it has half an ear! Fact is, it had a full ear when found. Fact is, no C.O. was ever called asap. A permit was issued later by the county sheriff (as stated above)! Not that it would make a difference. I'm not going to ask you to explain anything, because you simply don't know and your not involved. If you were a thinking man you would asses the situation and draw your own conclusions. Not just what you hear, or what your told. Think a little deeper before you speak!! This situation is about personal monetary gain!!! Don't kid yourself! If anyone can provide a few game camera pics clearly showing an untagged left ear the skeptics will fade away! Shouldn't be a problem since so many have seen this buck on "heavily hunted properties" One last tip for you Pez, you may want to shave, I thought that was little Hitler holding that rack above it!! LOL! seriously!

Gay-Diddy
I OWN property and live on Hogan Hwy. 1-2 miles west, cumulatively my family owns over 500 acres within 5 miles and it contains most of the woods in the area. Post your pic from 2 years ago. Guarantee it's not it! Fact is it's ear was cut in half, ask yourself why? We hunt the same area huh? This is a small town! I know of 2 farms that are leased around here and I know the owners very well (long time family friends). Maybe I'll introduce myself in October.

What a crock! Not a wild buck in my opinion!!! Take a good look at picture 6, all of the left ear is present. Now look at picture 9 half an ear! Most pics the left ear is hidden from view! Why? Certainly couldn't be due to the fact the buck had an ear tag, could it? But what I know? Other than the fact they would like to sell the antlers to Cabela's for $200,000. Just one of the more recent record buck debacles What a shame!!

Regarding SD_Whitetail_Hntr's comment that, "this should bring a lot of pride to the community", can you imagine how incredibly lame a community would have to be to require a dead deer to bring them, "pride". Jeez.

I can imagine the depressed citizens of the, "community", strutting around with their chests out announcing loudly to anyone who will listen, "We had a really big dead rotting deer here!", "So you'd better show us some respect".

I mean talk about low expectations. If only a big dead rotting deer carcass was found near my community. I'd be so so so proud.
