My Biggest Deer
« on: March 10, 2013, 11:04:09 PM »
This is by far my biggest deer ever.  SHot him in north Missouri in Novemeber of 08.  I wrote a story and posted it here and in the magazine.  It's long so I didn't post it again here.

I call him Big John...

Official score was Gross 175" Net 158" B&C. My taxidermist scored him at 182 all 3 times he measured it. But he aint official.

I wish we had a scale because he was a huge deer.

Beautiful buck!  he looks bigger than my 17pt non typical that netted 165-2/8", which is my biggest one so far (there is always hope that a bigger one will come along someday)
