On my way home from work this morning I came across this road killed buck. You can see where someone was trying to cut the skull plate off, I guess he got interrupted. Looks like a lot of horn for early May!

Have ever noticed that all the big bucks get hit by cars or trains, me and my good friend watched 6 bucks last august in his backyard for about a month there was one buck that was gray and swayed back,nice 12, tall 2s and 3s we thought about 12 - 14 inches picture perfect huge rack, probly 5 1/2 - 6 1/2 year old, the others were young bucks 2 1/2 - 3 1/2 , but any ways we would shoot our bows every evening getting ready for october first, well we noticed about two weeks before opening day the young bucks were there and the big one wasent, so we hunted him hard and nothing after taking two nice 8s we kinda gave up on him , well long story short my friend had some cows get out in late october and a man that was helping him get them back in asked him if he heard about the buck that he had found dead on the road by his house , "well no he said" the old man took him to get it mounted and he grossed 181 inches green, needless to say my friend was sick, and has not seen the man since, sorry the story was so long

I had what would have been a true 180+ walk buy me a few years back. Heavy 7 on his left side and maybe 13-14 inch 2-3's. He was busted (fresh) on the right side right after his g2. No way another deer could have broke his rack. His main beam was almost as thick as a beer can.
Rumor has it that the part of his rack was found 1/2 mile from the stand location along the road and a farmers wife kissed him with the minivan.
What a shame. He was the only true 5.5 I've ever seen and I doubt I'll ever see a deer in that class again. I never saw him again.:bye2:
