Monster six point

Yes, I know it sounds strange to call a six-point a monster, but I don't know what else to call the buck I saw yesterday in the Allegheny National Forest far back a dead-end FS road.

This buck, still in velvet, had what I believe the second widest spread I've personally seen on a PA deer. Each tang was at least six-inches tall. And the shape was so perfect as to look like someone's painting.

How does a six-pointer get that big? What will this guy look like if he makes it till next year or the year after?
willyp and shouldvbeenthere like this.

6" TINES on a buck aren't anything to write home about. There are plenty of wide racks around too. I'm guessing you're describing a buck with no brow tines?

I guess it's all perspective. What you're describing doesn't sound all that impressive to me at all and I'm not some kind of antler snob. If what you're comparing it too is the typical 1.5yo 6pt that's 8" wide with 3" tines then sure, it's going to look giant at 18" wide and 6" tines.

I'm glad you saw him and glad he got you excited either way!

We have had some enormous 6-pointers on our property over the years. Many with 22 inch and greater spreads with very deep forks. They look like mule deer. These bucks have brow tines, not 3 up top. They are two up top and brows. Actually, my buddy shot one that was close to a 4 pointer (5th point was barely legal) that was wide and heavy with sweeping main beams. He weighed about 250 pounds and was 8.5 years old.

A few years ago a young hunter shot a 6 pt. during rifle season at my buddy's camp that green scored approx. 125! By far a bigger rack than any of the 8 or 10 pts killed that year.

I Googled monster 6 pointers and found one that grossed close to 160. What a beast. We've gotten a few giant 6-points at our place over the years. We are now focusing on 10-points.

For several years, a 6-pointer was the boss deer on our property. Check out the Csonka thread on the trail cam thread. His rack was never the biggest, but he was built like a horse.

Our smallest [point wise] on camera this year is a huge 6. He's a good 4 inches outside both ears with 6 inch brow tines. I will shoot him if I have the opportunity.

Camp life,it don't get much better!
