#WhitetailWednesday: 9 of the Biggest Bucks Ever Caught on Trail Cameras

Big Bucks Caught on Trail Camera

Can you imagine getting one of these bucks on your trail camera?

Ah, summer. While most people are enjoying the warm weather, cookouts and fireworks, die-hard deer hunters are anxiously waiting for deer season. On the plus side, the most exciting time of summer is the first time you pull cards from your trail cameras. Waiting to see what might be running around your hunting spot is like waiting for Christmas morning.

So, for today’s #WhitetailWednesday, we’re highlighting some of the biggest bucks to ever appear on a trail camera.

We know there are a lot of trail camera photos that come from high-fence ranches. And, because there are so many floating around the internet, we’re only including confirmed 100-percent wild whitetail bucks.

The Stephen Tucker Buck

It just doesn’t get much bigger than this. Stephen Tucker’s 312-inch Tennessee whitetail showed up on his trail cameras numerous times. Tucker had regular photos of the big buck from almost every different angle on his Moultrie game camera. We’re guessing these game camera photos made it very hard to sleep at night!

198-Inch Kansas Monster

This Kansas monster is what hunters dream of when they pull their SD cards. This buck would’ve been a new state record for Kansas it not fallen victim to poachers. The poacher who shot the big buck almost got away with it, too. Luckily, multiple people had camera images of this awesome 14-pointer to prove the poacher’s story about where he shot it was false.

The Jim Cogar Buck

If you were drinking coffee while looking over your trail camera photos, a picture like this would make you spit it out! Cogar and his family named this 213-4/8-inch Ohio buck “Conan” after the Arnold Schwarzenegger character. Quite fitting, don’t you think? Cogar and many others were after the giant deer that hunting season. Numerous photos of the buck surfaced, including this awesome picture from a Cuddeback game cam. Cogar would finally catch up with him on the very last day of archery season Feb. 3, 2013. Talk about going down to the wire!

The Austin Pontier Buck

When this giant buck fell, many thought it would break the world record for an archery-killed deer (and possibly even Milo Hanson’s record). It wasn’t quite that big, though. The buck grossed 202 3/8 inches and netted 194 1/8. But we sure wouldn’t complain! The Browning trail camera photos of this monster would be enough to give us a heart attack!

Monster Illinois Non-Typical

This buck graced an SD card near Petersburg, Illinois, in 2009. Unfortunately, there’s no lucky hunter to end this story. Someone found this buck dead in January after the deer hunting season had ended. The monster buck netted an impressive 254-1/8-inch non-typical score, and was the subject of many more photos from local hunters’ trail cameras. It’s just a shame the story had to end in such a disappointing fashion.

Louisiana Monster

Frank Sullivan, a Louisiana dentist, used a Browning trail camera to monitor the movements of this double-drop-tine, 198-inch non-typical in 2017. Since it was living right behind his dental practice, he was able to develop a routine of monitoring his game camera before work. This allowed him to perfectly pattern the buck’s regular movements along deer trails to and from his property. It eventually led to him shooting one of the biggest bucks in Louisiana history!

The Dan Coffman Buck

This monster non-typical was showing up on Ohio hunter Dan Coffman’s trail cameras on a weekly basis before he arrowed the 288-inch monster in November 2015. Having the trail camera photos also helped Coffman dispel some of the ugly rumors that often come with a big-buck harvest. He notified his local game wardens ahead of time and they were able to confirm the legality immediately after he shot it. That definitely some smart thinking!

The Travis Links Buck

Facebook

Can you believe there’s another Louisiana monster on this list? Travis Links, a Louisiana chiropractor, harvested this awesome 190-inch, non-typical buck in October 2016. The craziest part of this story was that Links and his buddies didn’t even know the buck existed until seeing trail cam photos only days before he shot it in mid-October. The moral of the story is to never get discouraged if you’re not seeing a lot of action on your trail cam. You never know what’ll happen when the rut starts!

The Joe Franz Buck

Sure, we’ve shared the story of this great buck many times, but not the trail camera photos. Look at that awesome picture! Who wouldn’t feel their heart beating out of their chest upon finding that picture on their SD card? Just look at the tine length and great mass on display here! This monster non-typical scored 230 7/8 inches, becoming one of the most iconic whitetails ever taken in Iowa.

GRAPHIC: Absolutely Brutal Snowmobile vs. Deer Collision

https://www.wideopenspaces.com/graphic-absolutely-brutal-snowmobile-vs-deer-collision/

Facebook

A collision between a snowmobile and a whitetail deer resulted in one of the more gory pieces of video that you’re likely to see.

Everyone outdoorsman knows that collisions between animals and vehicles happen far too often. The results are often catastrophic on both sides. When a snowmobile traveling at high speed strikes a deer, we shudder at the thought of what damage might result to both machine and driver, let alone the deer.

This video shows just such a collision. It is both explosive and surprising.

WARNING: Graphic footage in the video.

As the deer races onto the snowmobile trail, the driver has zero chance of avoiding it. He T-bones the small whitetail with such force that the deer’s back-half almost literally explodes, spraying tissue and innards into the air. It’s ugly and shocking.

But the video is also surprising because, from what we can see, the damage we might have expected to the driver and his snowmobile was thankfully about as minimal as could possibly be. He immediately slows and comes to a stop, gets off of his snowmobile with seemingly little after-effect from the collision, and checks the front of his machine. It appears to have suffered little if any damage.

Amazing. Surely the small size of the deer resulted in far less damage than what there might have been.

In any event, it’s a rough scene. If you’re a snowmobiler it is certainly worth reminding yourself to be alert and treat driving a snowmobile with at least the same defensive attitude and care as you do with your automobile.

Be safe out there this winter!

You'll Never Believe Where This Crazy Rut Chase Winds Up!

https://www.wideopenspaces.com/youll-never-believe-crazy-rut-chase-winds/

When this buck heard there was a hot doe in the area he took things a little too literally. 

If you’ve been in the whitetail woods in November, chances are you’ve seen some crazy rut chases. Bucks chase does up ridges only to chase them right back down; they push them across driveways, through traffic, and even once in a while past your stand.

Despite their crazy November notoriety though, you’ve probably never seen a buck as persistent as the one in this video.

Even with her best diversionary tactics and solid hiding skills, this doe seemingly can’t find a place to escape the hounding buck. With no other option she takes to the lake in a tactic she very well may have used to escape some of the most persistent predators in the past.

A hungry pack of coyotes, however, is no match compared to the persistence of a rutting buck. With Olympic speed the bruiser quickly catches the doe in water and sends the chase back to dry land.

What’s the craziest chase you’ve ever witnessed?
