I have hunted out there for 17 years on 2 different places. LOTS of deer if you are not in an area of the county that's over hunted. Lots of pigs as well if you have the woods to hold them. Lot of Turkey if you have the creeks and trees big enough to roost. Bucks do not get very big. Most shooter class bucks will be around 110". A 120" deer is a trophy for that area and a 140" is a absolute giant. If you want respectable deer you will find them there. If you want true trophies you better keep looking. I did see one on a high fence place that would top the 400" mark and I would pretty much bet my life on that. Pretty sure he had just been bought from a deer breeder though so he don't count.

Here is the biggest I have seen or killed out there. This was in 2018.

yup. My biggest is about 122" and I have only had one on camera that would push 140". Now if you were to have enough acreage and manage with protein I could see the #'s go to 130's with 150's on the upper end. Best of luck to ya.

dirz71, really nice job on the dead deer photo. I don't like all the blood showing but good job on the rest. Rack is level and shows all points(I think). Hard to get that head and neck up like that and the ears out. Shows body well and hard to get them to lay like that. No shadows. Shows hunter well and weapon along with the habitat. Camera on same plane and hunter same height as deer. Cropped just right. Besides the blood the only negative would be the way the bows turned it dominates the photo too much, IMO. Im no photography expert but I try hard on field photos and appreciate when I see a good one. Thus ends the dead deer photo lesson for the day.
I wish I could offer something on topic but I don't know that county anymore than whats been said. Carry on.
