So we found this deer skull in the creek bed. My guess is he died in early September as he still has little bit of velvet on his antlers. He was reportedly seen walking with a limp so not sure if he got injured in a fight & that was his demise or injury was severe enough that coyotes got him. Either way, he had been a no-show for awhile so we cried a little bit when we found him.

I put the tape on him but guess what he will scores.

It would be way better if you posted a pic with the rack and a person kind of side by side instead of with the rack pushed out front. Totally throws off the perspective and the other pics have zero close by to offer perspective. Great great deer and I may try to guess score later if you dont have any more pics.

If last seen walking with a limp and found in creek. I would guess EHD. It kills more deer than CWD ever will.

This^^^^^^^^^ EHD is first thing I thought when I read the post. He looks like a 220-230 frame type deer.

No matter what led to his demise, he deserves to be mounted up

Slick Head wins the prize for being closest to the score. Not sure if you are lucky or just really good but he measured 228. Congrats!

OP, that looks a lot like a buck you posted a pic of last year. There were three in the pic, you were asking about score/age. Could it be?

Before I scrolled down to see the score I came up with 210, so I was a little bit low but getting better at guessing. Dang shame to loose any good one but that one would really hurt.
