I was surprised to read the headline after the giant MN 8 pt poached last year. There is no question that it is a fabulous deer, and as he owns and works the land, no one better to tag it. So glad it wasn't tagged by a lease holder or someone renting the land. Congrats!

Tremendous buck congratulations!! As for Hutters ridiculous comment- do you hunt with a stick bow & flint tipped arrows making such a comment. Knowing what class animals that are present on your hunting grounds just keeps you more focused on stand & every REAL hunter in my area use them- get real!!!

The big 8 in my my Avatar is a set of sheds that we found in our haystack in the winter of 93', and it conservatively scores gross 177" and nets right at 170". This deer was never harvested and we think it died of old age.

I am from Atlanta, IL, Jason's hometown. I checked the bios info on the pic I was sent, it came back that the pic was taken in Colorado. I have doubts about the origin of this deer. I'm thinking it came from a high fence farm. It's pretty but I have doubt about it's true harvest location.

Mr. Bell and any other none believer- i assure you this is a 100% wild fair game kill. I personally took pictures of this deer and have been following this deer with Jason since the first trail cam pic. The harvest location is correct in the story! Mr. Bell you are way off on your assumption! I have had this deer in my hands after it was havested and it is trully remarkable!

I would like to Thank everyone for the great comments. It has been a pleasure to share my buck with all of you! Mr. Bell I do not know you, which means you do not know me and being from the same area does not qualify you as a judge. If you would talk to someone who knows me I am sure all your doubts will vanish. I assure you that this article is correct. If you would like swing out to the Ag Center and talk to the guys out there. They know me and were some of the first to see this awesome FRESH and LOCALLY harvested buck while he was still warm.

"Great eight" Jason thanks for sharing this deer for all of us to see. I have scored a few giant eights before for a website (namonsterbucks.com), but nothing of this caliper. I read the article but it did not tell any of the circumference measurements? I was just wondering how heavy was he? Congrats on such a special trophy and good luck this year. I would love to add this deer to the site. Sincerely Hank

Additional Info

On December 1, 2011, on the opening day of the second shotgun season in Illinois, Jason Sanders tagged what will likely be the largest 8-point whitetail in the Boone & Crockett record books. Sanders, a 38-year-old farmer and veteran deer hunter, was hunting on his home farm when he set his sights on this world-class buck of a lifetime.
