Yea I dont think he was as old as that picture makes him look. The butcher and another guy there said he was relatively young likely 3.5 yrs old. I have other trail cam pictures and he's not as pot bellied or hunched.

Congrats man! Can anyone use a crossbow in Maryland? And, can you throw as much corn out as you want, or what are the regulations on that? Not saying you did this illegal at all, being totally honest, I am just curious. Great buck and like another has said, I can't believe he only dressed out at 164#. Score him sometime, or have someone else score him if you want. I would like to know what he grosses out at.

Yes it's legal for anyone to use a crossbow as of last year. And yea as much corn ad you want. I just throw a grocery bag out each time some people put out hundreds of pounds. I am gonna ask the taxidermy today if he scores when I drop it off.
