Trophy Size: 17-inch inside spread - didn't have him scored
Trophy Species: Whitetail Buck
Story: It was raining all evening and this buck was chasing a doe. It had already got by me twice that evening and the third time he came out in my lane. I'm guessing he was through with the doe for then anyways. He actually responded to me grunting at him this time and gave me a hard quartering-away shot at about 250 yards. He also got by me one morning a few days before then. I never even noticed his rack until the shot when he turned his head around to look back at me. All the times he got by me, all I noticed was how big his body was. I'm guessing he weighed around 190-200 pounds, which is huge for a deer 'round these parts. Thanks for letting me share!
