Default Found a dead Buck (good pics on page 3)

went shed hunting today and only walked for about an hour when i found this







he grossed 180 2/8, my cell phone takes crappy pics but for referance his brows are 7 each and his right G2 is 13 4/8



my brother shot a 185 inch 14 pointduring this yearsyouth season so this year we have taken off our farm 2 180's (i kinda count this one )

the management on our 2000 acre farm is finally paying off, in the past 2 years we have taken4bucks (and found one) so a total of 5,that grossed over 170 (2 over 180) and have had4 in the 145-165 range (unfortunately i have taken 0 of these [:@])

I feel your pain on the fact you have not taken any but it sounds like a great property. Good luck in the up coming years and I look forward to hearing about your efforts.

Sure would be nice to know the cause of death. He was a whopper.

there was no way to tell but he had been dead for a while, we think he was shot off the road by poachers and then ran into the thickest nastiest stuff on our property but then again, anything could've happened
