Big Button Bucks
Ha! Why not. I'll throw up a picture later of a button buck antler mount.
My thought on seeing the title was "Oh brother, here we go. . . "
Then I saw it was Shug and got a kick out of it.
Good stuff. Big 4pts will be next
I'll take anything over the political threads!!
They make the huntin' world go round...
I’ll play ! And yes SITO, that is a feeder in the background ! ;-)
Nice buck drycreek. Think he will go 160?
Yeah but that's a Texas button drycreek. Those buttons look huge, but that deer probably weighs 30 lbs on the hoof :)
Don't let Grey Ghost see that feeder
I got this big button a few years ago here in Wisconsin. Button of a lifetime for sure!
This is what you get when a Papa has too much time on his hands and his grandson wants a “trophy”
not button but, i killed these trophy spike bucks.
Edit: These were on guided hunts in Kansas and Iowa. PM if you'd like the name of the outfitters.
Gotta start trainin'm early, if you want a "real" hunt, Drycreek :/
That would definitely make Poke 'em Young, drycreek!
“Think he will go 160 ?”
Not in East Texas, he won’t live that long ! ;-)
My first ever deer was s button buck. Thought he was a doe. Dressed out at #90.
They’re a lot smaller around here….
Not seeing many side to side deductions on that brute, jsgold!
This one has nice ones, plus a cool mane....
I killed a button about 20 years ago that scaled 90# live weight
Darn good eatin. Have killed a few over the years that I though were does. Around here, early in the season, if you see a lone deer it is probably a button buck that momma has chased off.
I know this thread is meant to be a joke, but what the heck. My son shot a Nubbin Buck Friday evening, he thought was a doe. A short track, I knew he was big. Since we weigh all our deer, up on the scale he went, 101 lbs dressed. I was shocked! Talked to my buddy, he said something like, "I have to see that"! I told him to come on over and to bring his scale. He has a digital scale. Saturday afternoon we weight it, 96.6 lbs on the digital. We have been weighing deer forever, since I started hunting in 1978, and this is by far the biggest nubbin we have ever shot. This is west central Wisconsin. BC
I've killed a few button bucks (fawns) that I thought were yearling does (1 1/2 y.o.). They appear larger and especially when they come by you alone it can be hard to tell. Sometimes those buttons aren't obvious either. I don't think this one I shot in 2018 was a fawn though.
Tough pack job on this old warrior.
Bow Crazy I believe you. It's crazy to see a fan weigh in that big tho. Most yearling bucks here won't weigh over #115
I found a shed from a button buck once. Technically scored 0 inches.
Was that gross or net, APauls?
There are more photos of yearling spikes than there are button buck fawns on this button thread...8^) A button buck is a fawn until his first birthday, and then ungulates are yearlings from one to two years old...
RonP, those are "11" pointers!
