In this photo contest, let's see some of your Wide Buck Photos. They can be success photos or scouting pics, regular point-n-shoot camera pics, digiscoping pics or even trail camera photos. Feel free to post up to 3-4 photos for the contest, but post them in separate posts, as only the first photo in each post shows up as a thumbnail above.
Share a little detail about the pics too!

We'll run the photo contest for 3-4 weeks and a winner will be picked.

(BE SURE TO VOTE FOR WINNERS by LIKING PHOTOS)

The contest prizes for the winner will be a Large European Skull Hanger and a Medium angle European Skull Hanger from Dead On Display. So you'll have one to hang a big bull elk rack from and one for your big buck. These skull hanging kits are real cool, so even if you don't win, jump over to their site (https://www.deadondisplay.com) and check them out.

Every time I look at this picture of my 2015 buck, it reminds me how lucky I was to shoot the buck standing broadside. If he would have been running away from me with this view in my crosshairs, I would have definitely got buck fever and probably would have missed and thought that I had missed out on a 40"er.

Taken by my cousin in northern Utah in the 60s. I will try to find a better photo if you think it might be a contender 😀

Never understood why eveyone measures the greatest outside spread and calls their buck that wide. Outside doest have anything to do with score. Measure the inside thats how wide it is

Greatest outside spread has always been used in big buck contest in the past. That's just the way it's always been.

All the big buck contests i know of go by score so only inside spread is used. There is no scoring system that uses outside spread

I can't say for other states but I know all the larger big buck contest in Utah always used the outside spread before they were banned. I bet if you did a poll, 90 percent would say they measure the outside spread when telling people how wide a buck is. That's just the way it's always been done in the west. When I shoot a big typical 4x4 plus eyeguards. I usually tell people I shot a 5x5 but most people just say a 4 point. Never a 10 pointer. Regardless how you measure, let's see more wide bucks!
