Default Florida Bucks

i know the further north you go, on average, the bigger bucks there are. however i believe Florida is the most overlooked state when it comes to hunting. there was a "boonie" taken here in my home county a couple years ago by a poacher. i don't think they ever put it in the books because it was poached but it was seized by the Florida Wildlife Conservation Commission shortly after it was shot. you can see this buck in the Ocala regional office of F.W.C. i believe it scored in the upper 160's maybe even higher. there are bucks of this caliber in this state, they are just few and far between. anyway, i just wanted to dedicate this thread to show everyone that Florida does have some nice bucks. if you have a nice buck that you harvested in Florida, post it up here...

this is one i harvested last year here in Central Florida. i've never had it officially scored but it has a 17 1/2 inch spread 8 point and weighed in at 150 pounds. i shot it at approximately 328 yards with a Weatherby .300 Mag. here are some field pic's of it, i'll post some pic's of the shoulder mount later.

Nice buck CamoCop! I have a question though. Why use that caliber on these Florida deer? Geez, my 25.06 kills em' just as dead and won't kick you into oblivion. (not critisizing just questioning!)
