Kansas delivers again! “Tank”
Got lucky again with Forest and Kelly in Kansas. So blessed with good friends and good hunting!
This is the heaviest deer I’ve ever shot. We had to winch him up from a ditch and it took three of us to load him on the Polaris.
I hope everyone has a great/safe season.
Man what a TOAD!! That thing is huge!
I used the 2” stainless steel head!
I used the 2” stainless steel head!
Last year I started using the Vortex broad heads and this deer was # 10. They work really well. This deer was quartering away at 17 yards. He went 60 yards and gurgled his last breath. Takes a lot to drain these big boys!
Beautiful buck Charlie, congrats!
I can’t help but smile! Thanks!
You Da man
Good luck, Robb
That’s a beauty. Congrats!

That is a serious beast. What did he dress out at? (I'm guessing 'over 250'.)
Wow! Congrats and yes friends make all the difference
Congrats my friend. You are the best bowhunter I know. Well done.
Awesome deer, Charlie! Were you able to weigh him? Just curious as he is a TANK!

Awesome buck Charlie, Congrats!!
A buck that has everything a hunter looks for!! Congratulations Charlie on the buck and another "... trip of a lifetime every year.."!
So nice man. Is that your own ground C or an outfitter? If not an outfitter in KS who would you recommend? Congrats
Awesome Trophy buck, Charlie...way to go!
Damn! Nice buck, Charlie! Congratulations.
Thanks everyone! When I started bow hunting deer 38 years ago I only dreamed of these kind of bucks. For many years I hunted in the Northeast and learned to bowhunt basically by filling any tag I could and also failing. There is still much to learn.
In 1999 I discovered the Midwest deer hunting and have been hooked ever since. “Over night success usually takes about 30 years” since then the people I’ve meet on Bowsite (Like Forest and Kelly and MANY others) have shared their hard work and I’m hunting some great properties.
PS: We didn’t weigh the buck but as I said he was my heaviest. Get er done guy’s! C
PS2: Much of this success is luck and perseverance. It doesn’t happen that often.
Congratulations... what a buck !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That is one hell of a buck Charlie. Congrats my friend!
Tremendous buck! Congrats Charlie. Good job.
Good gosh Charlie, what a buck. The phrase “he’s got it all” is cliche, but hell, HE’s GOT IT ALL !
Putting yourself in position to hunt mid west white tails is certainly a worthy goal. Turning that into results year after year is determination along with some luck along the way. Great buck!
congrats Charlie...stud !
holy deer meat Charlie!

Time to start sucking up to Forest I guess....LOL. Great buck!

Congratulations Charlie, what a beast! I'm sitting in a tree in Kansas right now, guess I better put my phone away...
Congrats , I would like to hear more about how the steelhead performance.
I am also in a tree in KS right now!
Congratulations Charlie. That’s the buck of my dreams! I’v hunted whitetails in Pa my entire life and I’ve never even seen one that big. To give myself a chance of having antlers that big I just became a lifelong elk hunter! But I still drool over bucks like that. Good for you man!!!
Unbelievable.......congratulations on a great buck!
Very, very nice buck Charlie, CONGRATS!!!
Super happy for you Charlie! Your e doing it right! What an incredible buck....I know you are but enjoy every minute of it.

5.5 years old
5.5 years old
Cut out the center two teeth from the lower jaw and sent them off for aging. He was 5.5 years old.
Beautiful taxidermy work. Tank is definitely a fitting name.
Beauty buck, beauty mount!
Beautiful buck and incredible mount!!!! Congratulations Charlie!
Excellent! Congrats again.
Mount looks great Charlie!!
Taxidermy looks great, congrats again on taking that beauty!
Congrats again Charlie, the mount looks great!
Wow.. thats a big deer.. congrats Charlie
Great looking mount Charlie!
Wow! That Razza guy should do taxidermy work full time! ;-)
Looks great, Charlie. Enjoy!
awesome mount Charlie - 5.5 is a great age for a mature buck.
Wish he would tie one up for me...LOL. Great buck!
Beautiful Trophy, Charlie...great work by Dennis, as usual!
You gonna Hunt while you’re there Charlie?
What a whopper ! Congrats Charlie !
Hey Charlie, that mount should keep the memories of that hunt alive. my best, Paul
Couple of top end deer to surely be proud of ! Congrats
Very nice mount! Congrats!
Spectacular in all regards
Awesome mount Charlie. Funny, I don't really name too many deer but I sent in the teeth from the buck I shot last year and had to put a name with it....I also used Tank and he also came back at 5.5. Congrats again.
Fantastic mount - world class whitetail. Congratulations!
Dennis does very fine work.
Big whitetail mounts are just pretty! Memories for years.
Beautiful taxidermy befitting a great buck!
That memory is preserved for the rest of your life. They say you can't eat the antlers but in a year the meat is gone. That trophy will last for decades. Now you can remember the thrill of the hunt every time you walk into the room for the next 40 years. That's why we trophy hunt and that's why we get them mounted.
Fantastic mount on a classic buck. Congrats, again.
Great buck! Beautiful mount!
Congratulations on a great buck! NIce to see dedication pay off.
