    I have been told about several massive bucks that have been killed this year, and I am finding it hard to believe. I have been shown pictures on some cell phones, but none by someone I would call a "reliable source". I was hoping that someone would be able to tell me if they have heard about a deer killed by a train that was like 40 somin pts. or a deer killed by a 70 yr old man that was like 30 somin pts. I would like to know if its true and would like to see pics if anyone has them. Thanks

    Just check the older posts here in the deer hunting forum, there have indeed been some dandies killed this year. Seems like more big bucks than ever before, but I think some of that is because more people are posting pictures online than ever before.

    I agree. Check out some of the older posts. I don't know if Arkansas has ever produced big deer like it has this year.

    More and more people are feeding them more......

    Corn feeders are huge, and more folks feed em year round now......

    Personally I do not agree with it, but everyone is different.

    I think people are now becoming aware of the advantages of deer management. I know I had the best bow season I have ever had this year. I seen two bucks running togather this year a 12pt and 8pt and both were every bit of 25" wide with super heavy horns. I could have pulled a shot at 50 yds on the big one but I just couldnt bring myself to risk it. It would have made me sick to know I wounded something like that. :smack: It was great to see them though!! Opening day I had a different decent 8 and a 6 togather under my stand and a hunter came out of the woods early on his 4-wheeler and spooked them off.. I wish some hunters would just stay home.:censored: Thats what I get though for hunting areas people look over, and walking/canoeing in to keep them that way!!
