Damn...nice find though Pat.
So let me get this straight Pat...
You were checking out some beavers and saw something sticking out... Oh dam, you have some history with this one that you weren’t expecting...
On a serious note, that’s a cool story.
Great find and cool buck!
id guess 99.8% chance its the same buck..
Most wounded or injured deer head to water. Car hit? Poor shot? Poacher? Coyotes tear a hole in him? Sometimes I wish they could talk.
If dead deer could talk we'd have some real problems. Closure is always nice to have even if it was 2 years later.
yep, same deer ... cool find, always hate to see them go out that way ... nature is a cruel mama ..
Looks like you have a fellow statesman with the same name that just plain doesn't get it. In two cases now.
I bet that rack will clean up nice.
I am with the real Pat 100% the same deer. Spend too much time chasing beaver and it has been known to get you in trouble.
Wow, cool find and good you learned of his demise... Been a few I always wondered what happened to and never did...
Any truth to the rumor that this guy knew too much??!!
I’d sure like to get closure on a few bucks that have disappeared over years myself.
Great find Pat. Did you put a rough tape on him? Curious on some numbers on that one.
Always great to have closure. Great buck for sure.
