    Hey guys and girls. I just thought I would share this picture with yall. Me and my best friend were watching this deer develop for the past 4 years. We have piles of trail camera photos and video footage of this buck. One day we were invited to a Sunday cookout by another friend. After arrival, he mentioned that he had found a big buck dead, on the side of the road, in one of the areas we hunt. Low and Behold, it was one of the big deer that we have been eyeballing for the past 4 years!! Sure was heartbreaking to see such an amazing animal fall by being hit by a car. Especially one we have passed up many times and have so much time into. I just thought I would share this story with you all. The bucks measurements were: 21 1/2" inside spread,14" G2(left)12 3/4"(right),10"G3's, 8 1/4" circumference on his left base, 7 7/8" circumference on his right base. Thank you all for reading...:confused2:

    that rack has a pretty wicked looking base, sucks to hear about a good one like that going to waste like that though.
    one thing you might watch out for is having the rack, or saying where you got it... a lot of states have laws against posessing any part of a road killed deer.
    maybe those types of genetics are in your herd though! i hope you get one like that sometime in the future.
