Biggest 6-Pointer Ever with Bow & Arrow?

April 18, 2007
Biggest 6-Pointer Ever with Bow & Arrow? - 21

April_18_07
Next to a drop-tine monster I am obsessed with shooting a big old 6-pointer, like this one. A 4- or 5-year-old 6-point is a lot rarer than a buck with a drop; I've never seen one even half this large, have you?

The email I got with this picture is sketchy on details, but it said that Burt Eichstaedt shot the brute near Milwaukee, WI last fall (Packers sweatshirt a giveaway?). It purportedly broke the state record and might be the biggest 6-point whitetail buck ever killed with bow and arrow (158 2/8" gross and 155 4/8" net Pope and Young). Nine and 11" brow tines, 22" wide.

Any of you WI ZONERS know more?

Hell of a buck and looks like the fellow with the shed had been hunting the old 6 for a while, way to go!

Mike,I'm with you. I want a P&Y 6 pointer more than anything else. If I could only take one book buck in my career, that would be the one I would want. That is an absolute truck of a deer. Great, great, great stuff.

I hate to bring this up but the antis are already starting to show their teeth over the VT shooting. The Houston Chronicle, which is a pretty middle of the road newspaper, had several articles and editorials about gun control. I watched the ABC special last night and by the time it was over I was so angry I couldn't even go to sleep. The point was well made that if the guy hadn't had the gun the shootings wouldn't have occurred. Well, I say, what if he was some kind of sword nut and chopped up a bunch of people. It really is going to get bad over the next couple of weeks. I just don't know why people don't realize that the nut cases are going to explode no matter what. Guns or no guns they are going to kill people with automobiles, knives, or whatever. We've got to stick together now, guys and gals. Mark my words legislation is going to come out of this tragedy that is going to injure the 2nd ammendment. And that will be even more tragic.

Rodger, yes we will delve into this in time because all kinds of people/media are politicizing this tragedy, but for now we here in VA are in the healing stage; prayer vigil tonight at my church, where hundreds of families have kids at TECH. But again in time we WILL deal with this and I agree we must stick together

Yeah, I've used Deer Cane. Unfortunately, hogs like it better than deer. The last time I used it, I had a hole 5 feet deep and 15 feet across and never saw a hog. All the damage was done at night.The biggest 6 I ever shot was about 17" across with no brow tines. Sorry, but I've never had a hankering for a big 6.

The big six pointer is great and would die of OLD AGE in my part of MO. check the regulations and you will find that with the antler restriction (except in youth season) six pointers are NOT LEGAL. In an area south of Maryville big six pointers are fairly common but can not be taken. Now for all of you in favor of antler restriction have this one walk by untouched then tell how much you like it. If you think it is not enforced, just check the arrest records or call an agent; it is enforced very strictly.

There is not a gun law in existance that would have stopped that COWARD from doing what he did. If a criminal wants a gun HE WILL GET ONE. The only thing that would have stopped him is someone with a concealed carry permit pulling out a weapon. The COWARD would have probably crapped himself if he had seen someone besides an unarmed victim.

Yes that grand deer would also die of old age here in Pa. Unless a Jr. hunter would shoot it. Or in a certian part of the state. Reg.'s here are 4 or more points on one side. Bucks are getting better though can't complain!

Awesome deer, and think about how rare it is for a 6-pt. to be that big...

To all who commented on antler regs--I am for them in some places and instances, but not allowing somebody to shoot the above giant 6 is crazy, just because it doesn't have 4 points on one side!! This is obviously a big mature deer; the regs are there to protect young 1 and 2 year old bucks; need some loophole in the regs where if a giant 6 like this comes by it's legal and you'd damn better shoot!!

I am from Wisconsin and I have not heard about that buck. However, that tag looks like a Wisconsin CWD zone tag. It is definitely a GREAT buck!

That is an awesome buck! My uncle killed a six pointer like that a few years ago that looked somewhat like that. It was only 19 inches inside though. Which, until now, was by far the biggest six with brow tines I had ever seen. It would be cool to kill a buck like that. It's frustrating that after something tragic like the VA Tech massacre, it triggers psychos elswhere. I goes to school here at the University of Louisville, and we had a bomb threat this moring. It may not be anything serious, but it unnecessarily works people into a frenzy. Anyway, great buck.
