Default Found Skull

Found Skull-deer.jpg
This is a deer skull found by friend in western Mississippi near Mississippi River last September while he and a friend were heading to the swamp to clean duck blinds. This rack has at least 23 scoreable points. It has not been scored. Wow !!! It is sitting on this chair at his camp as I write this.

I have not handled the rack. I would guess that this buck is in the 5-6 year range. I have 3 more photos, but this one is about the best. This is not a trick photo. The skull is sitting on a typical "kitchen table" chair.

No one deer hunts the property ... about 2000 acres of Mississippi River delta farm land. They owner leases only the "duck hunting" rights. The buddy that found it told me that they have seen several very nice bucks in the area, but have not seen any bucks of this make up or magnitude.

Very Impressive Buck/Rack...I think I would have it Scored to see if it would be a Record Book Rack!

Here in Missouri we have to call and report any Complete Buck Head and Rack within 24 hours,then the Game Warden usually issues Us a receipt stating the amount of Points and Not for Re-Sale!
