Threw out a couple of threads about my trip at the end of the week to Peace River Alberta looking for a big Whitetail. I have a buddy who has land up there and he says he see "Mega bucks" regularly. I don't think his place has ever been hunted for big bucks. He shoots the first buck he can every year. I have a pretty good idea what a good one is having been around hunting lots but just never focused on whitetail before. I also have heard of the massive bodies up there can make a big racks looks small. So to help me get even more excited (if possible) post some whitetail picture with score and even better with a trail cam or on the hoof look.....don't want to shoot a small one and don't want to let a big one walk!

Thanks!

This deer isn’t as big of body as the Canadian deer. But he fooled me. I didn’t figure he was as big as he scored. He had 3 stickers totaling about 8-9 inches. Grossed right at 140

Here's my biggest IL buck. Didn't get it with my bow, but he was only 10 yards away and I was wishing I had my bow instead of the 12 gauge.

Scored about an 1/8 inch shy of 180--that's gross, no deductions counted. This buck has a TON of mass all the way to the antler tips.

A good rule of thumb to judge a rack for me is to look for the frame of the antlers to be wider than the ears when the deer is looking towards you. If the G2's are at least as long as the ears are then it's going to score pretty well.

Will try to attach more pictures of my rifle deer from this weekend. I guessed it at upper 140s, ended up taping at 162 5/8s. G4s are a big player in the score game. I’ll attach the score sheet if I can

Boggs pictures show how deceiving pictures can be. See first picture then seeing score sheet, I was like no way. Then saw next two pictures I was wait I believe it.

14-Nov-22
Yep, I thought no way the first time I scored him too John, lol.

Here’s the thing, if this is your first serious whitetail hunt, shoot what makes you happy. Lots of fellas on first whitetail hunts set such a hard line at 1XX” that they are scared to shoot a deer that will really make that happy because they don’t want to embarrass themselves by shooting a deer that only scores 1YY”

If you see a buck and your heart immediately starts racing, he scores Enough”

15-Nov-22
Yep....usually when I see something I want I know it right away thanks cool deer...I don't care about hard score just general parameters...

The 153 on the left and my dads 14X on the right, not sure if it’s exact score but it was mid 140s for you to compare the difference

For live deer and body size I'll try and dig up some pics. I feel quite confident in scoring a deer on the hoof. I would say although narrow this buck would gross in the upper 140's.

Not a lot of Canadians on here that can help, and seeing as I have like 0 hunting time bowsite is all I got this year. Lay off man!!! Getting a little testy in the rut with no hunting time! lol

I'd prob trade almost all my bucks for just that buck 12yards posted. What an absolute unit.

Great stuff guys really giving me a feel for it!

Forgot to add trail cam pics of my 162 5/8 deer. Note: that deer had a 29” neck when I killed him which is huge, the body size was definitely giant by MO standards, and will be closer to CAN deer, these are his summer pictures before his neck swelled up

Talked to a guy elk hunting this year experienced whitetail hunter and he was Mule deer hunting up in that region and said they saw 160-70 clas WH's most everyday
