We took another buck on our hit list this year. Score 188 inches, 14 points, 44.5 inches of mass, and live weight 250 lbs. one mass measurement was 7.5 inches. Long brow was 9 inches. Spread 20 inside. This is one of those deer that the pictures do not do justice. His mass is so heavy and his brows are so long it makes the other tines look short which they are not. His 2 and 3 on the right are both 11 inches.
He was shot last night - no blood. Called dogs in and they tracked him to a pond. Dog swam across the pond after him.
We went back this morning and he was floating in the water. Got a john boat and paddled to him and towed him to shore. We think the deer is 7 years old. The one pic is of him when he was 3 years old. The other is a trail pic from this year.
