Sheds and dead head from same buck you figure? The middle sheds for sure me thinks.

From: Sean D.

Norseman, Im assuming they are. Dont know any info on if it was shot at one point and couldnt be found or if it died from something else.

From: Zim

That's an elk! Anyone know which county this is from?

From: Bowboy

It may have gotten into a battle with another and was gored.

Nice finds!!

Do the folks run deer drives there during gun season? I was curious because when I was hunting Iowa in deer drive country, I seen quite a few nice bucks left dead in the woods with holes in them. I got a few pics of them somewhere.

Certain parts of Iowa pump out 200 inch giants every year.

That is the Pat had on trail camera. I bet it was wounded by the Amish at night on a "coon" hunt.

From: BOHNTR

Per the CDC it died of COVID-19.

JL back in my deer drive days in Iowa we found lots of bucks with rotten arrows in them.

LINK, if I were holding that head the brows would be tickling your nose. ;-) Short arm or long arm, that’s a helluva buck.

Velvet pictures showed a cantaloupe sized blood sack on the left drop tine. No matter the score it’s a true giant

My goodness, that thing is almost unbelievable. Could you imagine seeing that thing coming through the woods towards you?

That last pic with the football hanging off the side… I actually feel sorry for the poor thing. Just seems a little “elephant man”.

From: Old Reb

I heard it was found near Old Fort in Seneca County.

From: Will

That's no blood sack, he was allergic to bee's, that was a white faced hornet nest. They thought he was a tree and set up camp, they got pissed when he tried to shed velvet and stung him to death.

Amazing deer!

From: LINK

Drycreek there’s no doubt it’s an awesome deer. I posted before the thread owner posted the last pic. I also knew it likely wasn’t his deer. It’s just hard to tell when someone uses a wide angle lens and holds the deer at an arms reach if you’re looking at a 180”er or a 215”er. Both scores are amazing deer but not in the same class. Why long arm a giant?

From: Boris
26-Jan-21
That is an amazing find. I could be wrong, but the deadhead and the photo of the live deer do not look like the same deer. They may have a giant slithering around there.

From: ohiohunter

No one is gonna coddle a dead head to appease the long arm whiners who feel their inability to judge an animal is the fault of the hunter. There’s a difference between holding a deer out for pic and purposely distancing yourself for the sake of illusion.

From: Zbone

Old Reb - Thanks for the info, any details of what it might green score?

Did you all see Spook Spann is laying claim to hunting it? He made several accusations about the neighbors trying to keep him from shooting it.

Sure Ohio I can give you that but how about the camera being positioned two foot from the head and the picture literally showing a beam at each edge. I suppose that was just not being present minded in how they’re portraying the animal. That’s not really a question because the answer is obvious. Here’s a pic with a CO not attempting to make a whitetail look like an elk.

Wonder if they're gonna keep it...8^)

The DOW here are notorious for confiscating big racks... They possess the rack from the attached photo which was state record and I think 5th in B&C at the time...

From: ohiohunter

It’s still a beast. I can’t think of one person who takes a harvest pic with the animal or fish pressed against their body. Not to mention every photo the dude has bent elbows (not that it matters). I see you long arming that cow, tryin to make her look like a heifer.

Some of the stuff on Spooks Home page on Facebook, regarding this buck, is ridiculous.

I'd like to find something like that someday.

Wow, what a story. Kudos to the farmer for letting the guy keep the antlers

From: Lee

Funny how guys get bent over a pic - deer is obviously huge. Even the pic with the officer shows that.

Awesome buck,

Lee
