Re: Biggest buck I've ever seen! UPDATE!

That being said, sawsmans photo is a few years old, and might possibly be the same buck the year prior to it's death by automobile homicide.

Re: Biggest buck I've ever seen! UPDATE!

Here ya go ridgetop.

Pretty sure it's the same buck with the CO. The buck was 32" wide.

There are several bucks that hang out in the area that have the same genes/antler configuration.
