    Finally shot a nice buck!

    He's no record, but hes pretty solid for an 8-point! He was shot in SWI near the Taylor/Page county line. Did anyone else shoot any nice bucks, if so please share.

    For an 8-pt, that's a great deer. I'll bet he 's 150 class, with that spread and beam height. Those G-2s look like they'll make 10"; nice job.

    Nice buck! That's not too far from my hunting grounds back home. Hopefully I can score a nice one when I get my chance the last weekend of 2nd season.

    Re: Finally shot a nice buck!

    Well done. Tines look to have good mass.
    Any thoughts/guess on the deer's age?

    I am guessing he was pretty old, maybe 5 years according to a couple of the guys I hunt with. I think he only had a couple teeth.

    Re: Finally shot a nice buck!

    Again, well done. Nothing like harvesting a mature buck with some serious antlers on it.
    Had 10 pt & 12 pt go by my stand during archery season. Let em go cause they looked young. Had an 8 pt get close 3 different times, and I would have definitely shot him. Huge-bodied buck. Had similar mass & points like the one you took here, but the rack was more straight up and not near as wide. Ol' guy was too elusive.

    Nice buck congrats! I tried deer hunting last year and I found that I cannot get into it like I do with duck/goose, turkey, and pheasant hunting.
