Yup. Looks like one I should have shot this year. Too bad I never saw anything close to it.

 Yea but it's one of those mystery photos that pop up.  Got the story and a bunch of photos last evening e-mailed to me.  In short it was supposedly taken in SD.  I pm'd SD Dog everything.  He's not heard about it and also says the game tag is in the wrong place for SD.

I got that photo (along with a bunch others) in several different e-mails.  Most said it was from Alberta/Sask.  Big deer.  E-mail I have says B&C 254 and change net.  I believe it.

 I got a story and a group of photos to.  Here's the story w/specs if anyone wants to read it. Preview shows it all c and p so..................................................................................
 
Deer of the Flippin Year:
 
This one will knock your socks off!!
 
This was shot near Redfield, South Dakota.
Gross non typical score - 259 1/8
Gross typical frame - 211 7/8
Net typical frame - 207
Total net non typical - 254 4/8

What and absolute TANK!

This photo below is my favorite but they are all great shots and ya gotta
love that smile! I'd save Dave is one happy camper!


Here's his story...
Saturday morning- saw buck feeding out in field with 3 other bucks, watched
him for over 1 hr in my spotting scope, got some pictures through the
vortex, which are attached. I knew from the first second I saw him he was a
true giant but never had him pinned at what he actually scored! I watched
him bed down, went in for the sneak through the standing flax, Got within 43
yards but when he stood up he walked straight away and I had no shot with
the bow.

Saturday night, went back to the field just to make sure he was still around
and he was right where I saw him last. Left him for the night

Sunday morning- Went out with Mike Gebhard and he was in the same field and
the night previous, waited over an hour for him to bed once he did, we
tried the stalk again, well we did get in closer, got within 32 yards waited
a bit and he stood up and did it to me again, walked straight away! NO
SHOT!!! My heart sank for a second time in 2 days ! What an amazing buck
to watch at 32 yards!

Monday morning - I had to be responsible for a couple days and go harvest so
I did a drive through the area on the way to the farm and he was again in
the same field! There was no wind so it wasn't as hard leaving him there to
go harvest.

Tuesday - WINDY and I was harvesting!!!

Wednesday - planned on going to office in AM then harvesting in PM but I had
to try and find him if I could, I was more then a little consumed by this
buck! Well he was in the same field again, he was the most predictable buck
I have ever seen, which I was good with. I again spent some quality time
with my vortex spotting scope. This time I made sure I knew which way he
bedded down so I would be broadside when he stood up. I left my truck at
8:15 and went for the stalk. Half way in the smaller buck with him stood
up and ate for a bit so I layed down and let him bed up again. Well this
time I got to 28.5 yards and he had no clue I was there, wind in my face,
laying broadside to me, now just the patience game, he put me to the test,
I was there for over 2.5 hrs kneeling in mud waiting for him to stand. The
smaller buck got up again and milled around for probably 20 minutes then the
moment of truth, he finally stood up! I was ready and drew and put an arrow
in him!


He didn't go 130 yards and 5 minutes later he was dead, I didn't get back
to the truck till 12:45 so safe to say I didn't make it to the office or
harvesting at all that day.

He was one of those deer that actually grew as I walked up to him!

I got the same story and picks.  One said Alberta, one said Alberta or Sask.  One said Great Falls, MT.  I'm guessing Alberta is the one.

If it was taken in South Dakota, it would be the archery record by 57 inches!

hmmmm..... interesting that the field grass is different between the photos and the deer does not appear to have been field dressed.. now given that the deer has been moved between photos and not field dressed draws on the suspicious side.  NOT that it's not possible to move a whole animal and clean later (several do this).. but that deer looks to go upwards of 300 lbs... if not more...
 
I guess if you had a 4 wheeler or something anythings possible....
