 Got this from an email yesterday.  He's one whale of a deer.

"Some guys went on a deer capture in Uvalde county about 2 weeks
ago and netted this deer, 'Heart Attack'. He scored 248, has 21 points,
an inside spread of 32 ½ inches, and an outside spread of 34 ½ inches. He is
only 4 1/2 years old. If you hunt, that means something to you. If you dont,
this will. They put a price tag on him of 1 million dollars. Enjoy the photos.  
 There is 1 of him in velvet and the others are once they had him
captured."

Obviously a breeder buck. High fence and all the "EAR TAG SAYS IT ALL". I personally am NOT INTERESTED in these barn yard bucks. Give me a free range buck any day. The free range deer are what most all of us every day hunters are after anyway. We go out to enjoy the great outdoors and if we get a deer great, and if not we have a great time anyway. I wonder how many of the RICH HUNTERS, who can afford to hunt these deer,and have caused this type of hunting to happen, have really ever seen and appreciated the beautiful first rays of dawn that the great All Mighty gave to us. Sorry to stand on a stump guys, but I just don't see the value to the average hunter for these BARN YARD BUCKS. I/WE work for a living and most of the time it is hard to afford the cost of a lease, let alone to justify the cost of a deer like these people advertise.

Hornhunter....

I could not agree with you more.  If you are ever needing a group to hunt with come join us.  Sounds like you would fit in nicely.

 Have a good day.

Hornhunter,

I agree with you as well.  There's a boatload more to hunting than sitting in a cramped box blind, having your guide select a big buck for you based on size and/or affordability, shooting it, and grabbing his rack.  Unfortunately it seems that's where we're headed as hunters, especially in some circles...real easy to get on that soap box with you.  But, high fence or not, that's still one beautiful deer.  And, those class of bucks are out there in the wild.  Down near where we hunt in Schleicher Co.  a non-typical deer was taken at a low fence place Christmas week that went 195 B&C.  VERY nice for that part of the world.  I don't have any pictures of him (will see if I can get some) but he was impressive.  And, with has much rain as we had this year I'm sure that's not an isolated case.  Since Boone and Crockett doesn't include high fence it'll be interesting how many B&C deer are taken in Texas this year.

This is what I have heard: 

 

This deer was actually a pen raised deer that was released into the wild as a yearling.  They then captured him with a DMP permit when he got outrageously big and put him in with 20 does. 

He grew those antlers in a pasture, not a pen,  which is impressive, but he's still genetically manipulated.

I've seen a lot of things going around like "he is for sale" etc etc.  Once you release a pen deer into the wild it becomes the property of the state.  The deer is now the property of the state and has to be released back into the main ranch he was released into initially once the permit runs it's course.

That is what I have heard as well. I don't like laying hands on them...either on pen raised deer, or DMP's. Not saying it doesn't work, and not arguing, just my preference.

You'all know my thoughts on pin raised "BARN YARD DEER". If a deer is in the wild, high fence or not, he should stay there no matter how big he is. To capture this deer and put him up for sale ( I think) should be and may very well be illegal, and the guilty party should at the very least be fined the amount they are asking for him. My two cents worth.

Yall must be some newbies to the sport of Whitetail hunting. Below is a link to the original "HEART ATTACK" He was the stud buck on the Tecomate Ranch back in 2001. His body dwarfed this other puny thing. He also appeared on a few earlier Monster Bucks videos back then when they were hunting the ranch.

Maybe we're just newbies at watching hunting videos, but I'd guess most of the guys that have posted here have an average of 30+ years whitetail hunting experience either as hunters, guides, or landowners, or all of the above.

Hi Chris, we are all Newbies here....  as you can tell, none of us here have a clue about hunting or whitetail deer.  We look forward to your enlightening expertise.  BTW, what ever happened to the original "Heart Attack" Buck from the Tecomate?  Did they ever harvest that deer?


Thanks,

No the original Heartattack was never harvested.  And he was no breeder buck.   Just a fantastic whitetail that the landowner decided not to shoot.  Died around 10 years ago.

LOL.  Would someone mind telling me what the definition of a hunter is?  At 34 I've hunted off and on for the past 22 years and to me killing a caged or fenced animal, in this case a deer, is not hunting.  It’s more like slaughtering. 

 

I am looking for a lease for myself , a man that I go to church with and allows are kids.  Please let me know if anyone on here may know of something.

David,

What part of Schleicher Co. are you hunting? We have had several impressive deer shot very close to where we are.

Don't know where in Schleicher County the buck I was referring to was taken.  His photo linked here.  We hunt in the northern part.

All,

I agree with everything said about hands off.  I have butchered plenty of cows, no different than shooting a pen raised deer.  At the risk of pi#*ing people off, I have also fed a lot of cattle, not much different than shooting deer off a corn feeder. 

I am exposing myself as a hypocrite here, since I am telling you that I am going on a guided hog huntin trip in April where I will (possibly, hopefully?) shooting bacon makers off corn feeders.  Is there a difference as an ethical hunter between shooting nuisance animals vs. game animals off feeders, bait, lights (anything not fair-chase)???

I had an old timer tell me for you to contral the hog population that you should shoot around 75% of them just because the size and number of litters they'll have.   He also said that the hogs will drive away the deer.  If thats the case then your doing that land owner a favor.

The feeder I had out fed the ranchers cows and the local hogs.  I learned a valuable lesson next year I'll use hog panels.

My friend had cow panels on three of his sides and barbwire fencing on the other.   Now if I only had a hog trap....

Hardy,

 

How big was Tecomate's "Heart Attack" buck at his peak?

 

I just remember him being wide and funky with some kickers.
