The whitetails have been giving us fits.  Much too warm, deer moving mostly at night, etc.  My buddy got lucky on this big main frame 8 point, with a 2" kicker off his browtine.   I had never seen a 150" 8 pt before this one.......153" gross to be exact.   Now before someone starts a s - - -storm, no high fences, no protein, food plots, etc.  100% wild.

That's how we knew in the first place, and why I told you 6 1/2....... by looking at his teeth.

10" G1?
18" inside spread?

That buck, like all the mature bucks in this area of the TX Panhandle, are much bigger bodied than anywhere else in the state.   Field dressed 179lbs, live weight app 230lbs.  We've killed deer up there that field dressed over 200lbs, but the drought has hit it pretty hard.   These are more of a Kansas strain of whitetail.  20" inside main beams, 4" G1's, 11" G2's,  9" G3's, 25" main beams, 18+" mass per side.

Texas deer age gracefully, anyway...  very nice 8 pointer.   A friend of mine shot a 168 8-point a few years ago at the Boggy Slew hunting club in East Texas.  For us Alabama hunters anything above 130 is a monster.  Beautiful... congratulations to your friend.
 
 
VERY nice buck, Brady... VERY nice...
