That's a really great point about the tine length, Mike. And that is a hog of a buck too!!

Mike you hit the nail on the head.......i have seen lots of people who had ground shrinkage..... width only adds what is not even there and decent main beams and great main beams are only 3-4 inches different. even mass is only 8 measurements of maybe an inch or 2 different each between good and great. tall tines and more of them rack up inches fast.

but what is really important is the big smile that deer puts on your face ......if you like him and you will be proud after he is on the ground then let the Carbon (or allm.) fly :)

awesome deer above, most hunters never even get to see one like that come through the woods

good luck to all

Super buck-neck looks huge for early October. He is a bruiser for sure older age class.. Ill take long points anyday, that's for sure. good advice.

Awesome buck for sure!!! Great point, Mike. I personally prefer narrow, tall racks.

Having said that, I'm currently hunting a super wide racked buck without a ton of height. First, I have to shoot a doe.
