Grandson had several pictures of this buck on trail camera and had seen him a couple of time that did not work out for a shot, but everything worked this morning.
Magic - - -
Congrats to your grandson!
Wow - - nice animal. Seen some awesome BIG bucks up here this year.
One was 214 pounds dressed
. Makes for a ~270 pound deer on the hoof....that's enormous, but he was corn fed....just ask the corn farmer that took the pic....
He himself got a super 150 pounder dressed, which is still very good sized. Years ago, we figured 115 pounds dressed was average, but most were 1.5 years old. Your grandson's deer looks 3.5 years old or so...not a youngster.
Often figure a southern deer runs smaller than a northern version. That looks like a big-bodied buck for MS.
Oh, nice tall rack too....our family always said antlers were inedible. Never had a buck mounted; wasn't our purpose for hunting, but that one belongs on a wall!!
