Not quite a shed

Postby Rutnut » Mon Feb 13, 2012 8:53 am

Went out looking for some sheds, and as happens every year I don't find any sheds, I find a dead buck. 3rd year in a row. However, this deer is much bigger than any of the ones I found in the past. The deer lie in an area not known for hunters, so I'm not so sure he was killed by a weapon. Anyway, I was excited to find such a deer.

After lobbing his head off, I took it home and boiled it. Well, this deer has apparently been dead for some time...oh, how that smell was delicious!!! NOT!

When I was done, I measured him to be 144 3/8 gross.
The g3 were 10 1/2” long.
The two sides were almost identical in total size.
There was only a 7/8” deduction

Very nice buck! I really appreciate symmetry and that dude's got it in spades.

Nice find! I've never stumbled upon a dead deer like that, much less 3 in a row
