I was in Illinois I think it was 2007 or 2008, it was the last day of the bow season, I hear walking, 10 mins before I was grunting with the grunt tube, and what came over a small hill was just a monster !!! He was roughly 60 yards away facing me, I stopped counting at 13 points, he had to be in the 180" if not bigger range, I compared him to a 170" plus buck the owner has on his wall, and the one I saw was much bigger!!! The sad part was, while hunting out of this tree a few days earlier I wanted to move my stand within 10 yards of where this buck was standing when I saw him. The reason I didn't move was I took my best buck to date out of this tree, and that year I kept seeing shooter bucks from this tree from the 130" up to the mid 160s, some well within range of the bow, but they just didn't want to stop while chasing the does.
This buck was from one of my leases I had here in NJ in the mid 90's in Sparta, I had him at 20 yards but it was opening day and the leaves where still thick and had no shot, never saw him after that, my friend Scott found both his drops on the day we had that massive 3' snow storm, I think it was 1996/1997. He had it green scored at 165"

What was the largest buck you ever witness while hunting?
Him, and then I put him in my truck.

As I'm eating my lunch, I catch movement coming toward me. Actually, I caught bone and some serious bone attached to a big buck:) I quickly got on the radio to let my buddy know this great 10 pt. was headed his way and cursed my bad luck as I could have had the shot if not tagged out. I watched the buck nearly disappear up the hill when I hear his rifle bark. I was thrilled for him. Turns out he missed

I was hoping he would circle in front of me but he never did. After he was behind my stand he slowed down and i started to draw back.
Then it hit me. My safety harness was stuck on my arm since I turned completely around on my stand. I couldn't draw. By the time I ducked under tether he was out of range.

i posted these pics in another thread. i had this buck at 20 yards facing me. Only had a throat shot so i passed. He was killed that year by another hunter. Scored in the upper 140's i think. Ive seen other big ones 130-140's but i dont have pics.
