Another giant Ohio deadhead
Holy mass! What a buck. It would be nice to see som short arm pics though.
Charlie, I wish I had something like that around me to find but thats not me. Its all over the ohio hunting sites today.
Sheds and dead head from same buck you figure? The middle sheds for sure me thinks.
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.
That's an elk! Anyone know which county this is from?
It may have gotten into a battle with another and was gored.
It’s from the northwest corner near Sandusky.
Holy smokes, that’s a monster!
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.
Crikey, thats worth a fortune if you wanted to sell it. I know aguy in Montana..
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.
Per the CDC it died of COVID-19.
BOHNTR, it died in of Covid in October and voted in the election in November
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?
Holy Moly, WOW!!!
Thanks for sharing...
Captive escapee by chance?
Wow that is all I can say
That last pic with the football hanging off the side… I actually feel sorry for the poor thing. Just seems a little “elephant man”.
I heard it was found near Old Fort in Seneca County.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
smacks of a pen raised deer...
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...
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.
Scores 233-7/8" and they think it was 8 years old, more info at link:
Wow, what a story. Kudos to the farmer for letting the guy keep the antlers
Funny how guys get bent over a pic - deer is obviously huge. Even the pic with the officer shows that.
