Any way to find a list of the top 8 pointers in the state killed with a bow?
Google no help?
I did find a pic of the biggest , at least as of 2010.
I tried and I found an article from 2012 and it was a potential new state record at 172. A buddy I work with killed a 8 a few years back with a bow that scored 165ish and we were just wondering if it would be a top 8 in the state as a bow kill.
That's a pig.
was that the net score?
I know about every year pics get posted of the next nice studly 8's that claim to hit 160",..never to be heard from again. Don't get me wrong,..they are pigs..i'd shoot'em...and I'm not really into scores.....but it takes a stud of an 8 to hit it.
I’m not into scores at all but even a 120 is a big 8 so you are indeed correct, a 160 + 8pt is an absolute monster, almost unicorn status.
hunter in camp in Alberta one year shot one that we scored several times and kept getting 165-167 gross. clean 8. don't know if the hunter ever had it officially scored but as clean as it was i bet it netted over 160. i got to see the deer alive the day before he shot it. i was out scouting with the outfitter. deer pushes doe across a cut line. he asked me if i got a good look at it. yep. asked how big i thought it was. started doing the math in my head. i told him the number i was coming up with was to ridiculous to say. i then took a stick did the math in the snow. then i told him mid 160's, he just laughed and said no way. that big 8 is my dream deer.
found the pick. the hunter is a big dude. probably 6-4, 270. deer is 20" inside spread.
When folks start talking 160 8's they better have some over the top tine length....gotta be something freaky about it or they just dont get there. Basically they are a booner 10 minus a 5inch crabclaw on each side. God just dont usually make big clean 8's that big.
A 140 inch 8 will make my heart pump where I can hear it. But that's just me.
Yessir... one of them kind. Shooweee
I believe I'd rather shoot a 160" eight pointer than a 175" ten.
i totally agree.
Sorry for just responding 3rd shift life. I'll ask tonight when I get in to work.
want to get your mouth watering.....www.ihuntalberta.com . photo gallery. some big deer and some mediocre deer. a lot of southern guys and Pa guys shoot the biggest deer they have every seen and it turns out to be 130-135".
