Normally, most hunters in Grayson County don’t get too excited about big buck prospects until the calendar reads November.

Normally, most hunters in Grayson County don’t get too excited about big buck prospects until the calendar reads November.


But if the action already reported this month of October is any indication, those opinions are subject to change.


And quickly.


Case in point is a buck I had heard rumors about for a week or two. The buck’s existence was confirmed to me this week when I received a photo from a well-placed source of a massive buck with at least 10 typical points, a kicker or two, and a gorgeous split brow tine.


While I can’t tell how many points the buck has — which was killed by an as yet unidentified hunter earlier this month — this buck is a Grayson County bruiser and then some.


Word came on Thursday night of even more local big buck magic, this time from Bullzeye Outdoors outfitter Erik Burns, who indicated that a couple of clients had taken huge deer this week.


"Steve Perkins took a big deer on Sunday evening and Clay Copeland took a big deer this evening (Thursday)," said Burns (www.bullzeyeoutfitters.com; 214-673-1680). "I don’t know what they score yet but they are both studs."


From looking at the photos that Burns sent me, I’d have to agree.


The Perkins deer is a big framed buck with at least 13 points (from what I can count in the photo), great mass, tremendous tine length, good brows, several kicker points and an inside spread that might approach 18 to 20 inches.


Meanwhile, the Copeland buck is another bruiser with at least 14-points, long tines, great mass, and an inside spread measuring in the upper teens.


While that is all the details that are known at the moment on these three record book bucks, look for more details soon in the Herald Democrat Outdoors section soon.


The bottom line — to me at least — is that it seems apparent that all three will score very well for the Texas Big Game Awards program and/or the Pope and Young Club record book.


Even though the 2013-14 season is still very young, already the Grayson County Record Book would seem to be in need of yet another rewrite.


Stay tuned for more big buck news on these deer — and probably a few more this fall — from the best little bowhunting county in Texas.
