Wow!  Just one more reason I want to hunt deer in my home state some day!  I still can't believe I grew up in MN and didn't take up deer hunting until I got older!  These Alabama deer just aren't the same animals that's for sure!

Hell of a way to go. 
But 190 and 150 inches, I don't think so.

That's unreal. I've often wondered just how rare this is. Although I don't think it's common by any means, it's not as rare as we once thought.  Given the remote locations mature bucks live, there must be many we don't come across.  Or maybe in this age of instant digital photos and u-tube we just are exposed to it more often.  Or maybe I'm full of it. It's a shame these bucks met their end that way.

Not 190", but a trophy for sure.
Hunting isn't a matter of Life or Death
Its MUCH more important than that!

We had the same thing happen last year in one of our state parks in Indiana. A fisherman found them floating just below the surface of the lake. I will see if I can find pictures.

Wow those are 2 monsters.  I hope I never find 2 bucks like that locked up on the land that I hunt.
