    Largest deer ive ever seen alive in person. And all i had was the worst camera phone samsung offers to pic it. A beast 6pt. I pegged him firmly in the 140 class.

    Had a 180-195 inch 13 pt casually cross the road in front of me around 2am one night a few years back a mile from my parents house. I turned around and came back and turned down a road he was headed towards and he crossed again right in front of me and stood there for a few minutes. In this case i actually had a .45 in my vehicle but was not about to shoot him. Was the biggest deer i have ever seen in person and was about 6 feet away from me.

    I’ve said on here many times, the majority of monsters I have seen have been on my commute to/from work. All of the ones I have in the woods are either jumping going in and out or during bow season and way out of range.

    Thought this thread was going to be about yotes! Seems like every time I go into the woods without a gun I see one.

    Yup...been there and done that. I have since learned to keep a rifle within reach when taking a nature break.
