In Utah, where I live, in person, I have seen about a dozen bucks that would hit the 180 mark. (In northern Utah)(General season units)
That is in a 10 year span. Only one that I know would go 200”
I still have not harvested one of them but have had some close calls. But I usually see at least one per year. Killing one is even a harder feat. Them big boys are smart, sneaky, and live in some unforgiving country.
I’ve scouted northern Utah twice this year and have found one already. 2nd scouting trip could not relocate him. Between friends and family tags, along with myself, it will be a long season of hunting opportunities to hopefully relocate him and have multiple chances to put him down.
Wyoming, hunted it once on a general season tag. Scouted it 4 days and hunted for 10 days. Altogether, I saw
I saw about a dozen 180 bucks and bigger.
That was all in one year!
Regardless to my lack of accomplishments harvesting one, I’ve had a blast chasing them and I’m sure once I finally do harvest one, it will be an emotional moment that I can’t wait for.
I have 10 bonus points and have yet to hold a premium tag.
My biggest buck harvested is a 2x3 back in 2008. Last deer harvested was in 2009. I’ve been chasing big bucks ever since. I think I’m overdue
