Default Huge Eastern NC Non Typical

Two minimum custody inmates working the farm at Caledonia Correctional Institution found this buck caught up in a barbed wire fence and killed it with a bush axe. I don't have any other details as far as points or width or score. I'll post more later.

My apologies, looks like a friend of mine that works with me at the prison was playing a practical joke on me.

Sorry folks!

i was in an archery shop the other day in iredell county and they had a huge antler that was a shed only five points but is was the gerth of it that amazed me. they said it had been the result of being fed right and time to grow.
heck i have this one buck that has been running all over on my land for the last 4 years and i keep seeing him when the season is out...he was an 8 point 4 years ago...and that was the last time i had time to count at least one side.
i'm hoping to get a shot at him next year

we could be a state that has big deer all the time like illinois but there is nothing stoping people from shooting small bucks...we have a new proposed law that will alow us to shoot two does a day the whole season...lets just hope it gets passed

I agree that our buck to doe ratio here in NC maybe a little low and we may could stand to harvest a few more doe, but harvesting doe and raising the buck doe ratio will only effect the competition between bucks for a hot doe and ensure that more doe breed with bucks who have superior gentics. I feel like a bigger issue here is the fact that most hunters shoot the first buck they see regardless of size, which leaves fewer bucks to reach maturity. If you kill every 4, 6 and basket 8 that walks through the woods you will never know what your land will produce. This is a big debate in my hunt club right now.
