Default Monster Oregon Buck

My Dad took this pick today in Bend. I wish they grew them that big on public land. Picture isn't the greatest but my dad was within 15' of this buck.

Awesome buck, wasn't a picture of this buck posted on here last year? Or are there multiple "freaks" running the streets of Bend?

He's not really a freak, more like a miracle. A miracle that he hasn't been shot or hit by a car before he could reach this size, especially considering how dumb he seems when you see him around town blocking traffic.

LOL - He has small ears too. I would say he has a shot at 40" outside with all the garbage and the fact he is super wide to begin with, I would say gross is well over 200. I think he would probably book as a non-typical.

Awesome....great pic. Do these big guys like him stay in town during rut? That stud is at least throwing out some great genetics.......he has got to look even crazier with a massive neck!

I have a tag for that unit. I had a place to hunt but lost access because the landowner sold the property. It's for my daughter's youth mentor hunt. Of course I'm going to continue to scout for areas to go but the synopsis says its only 1% public. Any chance you could PM with with the GPS cords of this fella??




Clearly I'm joking, I have no kids.

Amazing what gmo's and mineral block will do to our food supply. He kinda looks top heavy I don't think GMO's or mineral block can change his gene pool though.

If he can keep growing and no poachers get him, whoever is lucky enough to take him some day will give 225 a run for his money.

He's managed to survive the last several years in town, probably because he spends the rut in peoples yards with plenty of eyes on him. My son saw him last year outside of city limits though with 20 does, so it is a wonder he hasn't gone missing yet. I hope he keeps on breeding!

Was curious if this was the same buck as last year, now that you reposted it that left side drop tine gives it away. Enough people know about him he should be safe.

Dear, do these horns make my butt look small......

Yea, lots of shrinkage when the velvet comes off. Probably go from 230+ down to 220+.

Don't forget, not only will his sons carry the necessary genes, we hope, but also his daughters.

that's what I was thinking, it seems he would have to be 250ish. it honestly looks fake, poor guy, he has to deal with them for the better part of the year, but they are only useful for a couple weeks.

if he gets poached, the idiot would get caught. i'm sure thousands could ID that buck. way too big and way too unique

I agree he is becoming quite famous. And of course no disrespect to your buck with what I said before. Since it would take, lets just say several of my 1 buck to equal yours. Great buck.

This is a 242 Buck, taken in 1960 within 22 miles of this buck, by my grandfather Buck Matson.

I could see this Bend Giant going 240-250. He is wider and has more mass, but not quite the typical frame nor quite as many non-typical points...so it would be close to a wash. Glad to see and ol' drop tine still left in this state

He was still there today. He had a couple of smaller buddies with him, too. Quite the rack to see in person. The guy on the far left was nice and heavy with some funky stuff going on with his eye guards.

No other people were around when we spotted them. Unfortunately, others saw us checking them out and it quickly became a madhouse with people pulling over on each side of the road and walking in the street.

Not strange at all if you live near populations with great generics. Some of these bucks find safety and ideal conditions in city limits. It's quite common.

There is no hunting pressure and no cougars in town(for the most part). These bucks usually get huge. I have seen some monsters limping around with broken legs from cars though.

The #1 requirement for critters to get this big is age. In town, or hidden back on guarded private ground is about the only place to see mature animals. Getting rid of predation and poaching is mandatory. ODFW is a political agency. If we want bucks like this available on public land, we need to force ODFW to produce them. Hammer poachers and predators. And don't b***h when they drop tag numbers and enforce point restrictions while the deer grow up.
