I believe 155 4/8” net is the world record 6 pointer. There was a huge 6 pointer at the Cabela’s in Kansas City that was around 147” net, I believe it was. It was very impressive, to say the least.

Back in the day, I think maybe late 80's a guy shot one in NE Ohio that scored over 140", I remember that because it qualified for the state record book of 140" minimum... It was a smooth 3x3 with heavy mass...

Not a “large 6 pt,” but this was a special deer for me because it was my first 3 year old wt, 4th deer in 6 days, and filled the freezer with minutes left in the trip. 2016 Nebraska public land.

Sorry for the bad photo, it was dark and this was before JTree bought me my photo tripod.

I’m surprised no ones posted a photo of that giant 6 with all the stickers that was killed last year or the year prior? Had elk sized mass... anyone remember this buck?

These are awesome!! I was just curious. I shot one of the two legends of our farm the other night (cheater pipe) and wanted to know how he would stack up. He is a 7 point (7th point is about 5 inches) which is good since we have a 4 point law in our zone. I want to get him officially scored after the drying period. We did a quick rough measurement and came up just shy of 140 as a 7. I am sure a proper scorer would shave a few inches off of that. Thanks guys and keep the photos coming!

Another thing that I found very interesting is that in prior years, his 3 point was on his right and this year it was on his left. Also, the whole configuration of the main beam switched as well, it was like he looked in a mirror. Have any of you seen that? I was wondering how often that happens.

A basic 6 point with some kickers. My wife arrowed this buck on our place. It was 8 years old.

From: hitmanatgym
13-Nov-18
JohnMC, I mentioned at the top of the thread that mine was a 7 ( but with deduction would score as a 6 ). We can't shoot in our zone unless it has 4 on one side, the 4th point has to be at least an inch. When we first started seeing my buck, I don't think he would have been legal since his 7th point was very, very small.

Hitman, that's interesting that you mention your buck having the 3 pt antler on the opposite side the year previous. The 11 point I shot this year had done the same thing from the year before. Not only were the number of points opposite, but the characteristics of the antlers went along with it. Like looking in a mirror.

The 6 pter would not have been legal in our 300 zone in Mn., has to have 4pts on one side. My son shot a large 6 pter several years ago that was out of the 4 pt zone, dressed out 212# Great looking deer.

B2K... I found that mirror effect so interesting! My taxidermist says he had never even heard of it and thought that we had 2 different bucks.... I said that it was like had switched antlers and everything and the odds of 2 identical bucks living that long and in the same area would be like winning the lotto...... Maybe I should go buy a ticket!

The 6 pt. from N.E. Ohio was take by Ron Osborne at just over 140. He also took the jr. hole in the horn buck. Then a friend of his took an 8 pt. that went well over 180. I did measure a 6 pt. about 10 years ago for OBBBC that scored 150. That was at the deer and turkey show. That deer was taken about 30 miles west of Columbus, Oh. crossbow.

Here's what was the world record true 3x3 looked like, at least at the time. This old photo of mine doesn't mention the score however.

P.S. I consider the true 3x3 a fork-horn with brows. You have to divide the main beam into thirds to get your 4 circumference measurements. That is the other challenge insofar as beams tend to web out between tines and give larger mass measurements.

This is the largest set of main frame six point sheds I've ever picked up. Never really shot a big one either. These came from the famous Hashknife ranch in Kansas back in my early twenties...……..Don't remember the score but I keep thinking it was in the 140's. The bases were 6.5 inches and has long main beams. Old buck.

I have a buddy who shot one back in the late 80's. He calls it his 2X6 as it is 24"s wide(inside) and a clean 6pt. Has 27" main beams and believe it scored right around 132"s. I am trying to get him to send me a pic. so I can post it. Shawn

"The 6 pter would not have been legal in our 300 zone in Mn., has to have 4pts on one side. My son shot a large 6 pter several years ago that was out of the 4 pt zone, dressed out 212# Great looking deer. "

APR was a really stupid law in that Zone, now look at what the CWD hunt will do to that area. Larger 6 pt. that can make P &Y illegal? Gimme a break. Think overall mass, the status of the hunter ( who didn't shoot a 6 pt as a youth??), opportunity ( sometimes the 6 pt give you a better shot than the huge doe), first harvest, etc. all for an "opinion" that all 6 pts grown to something bigger. The reality may be they never will have more than 6 or it was once a 10 or an 8 and now is an old ragged 6...past his prime. Shoot'em if you want, don't let some SE MN lobby group working with DNR dictate the regs. Look what it got them??
