I'm guessing near carbon? That area holds some great genetics. I hunted there mid 2000. Not high numbers but some great bucks.

Giant! Is he a buck you watched for a few years or did he just come on the radar this year? If I killed a big deer I was following for multiple seasons, the pasture always seemed empty after I finally succeeded in getting him. Hopefully you have some more to fill in the coming years!

Little farther north, some good deer around for sure. Hard part is getting some age on them. Gorman/Carbon area used to be pretty awesome back in the peanut days. There was a giant high 180's deer from carbon a few years ago.

Not a lot of history. Showed up the last couple years in the rut, thought he was 4 last year. Showed up early this spring and was there everyday all summer. Teeth showed at least 6 or older and he threw all the junk on his bases this year but didn't have much of it last year.
We have a lot of decent 3/4 yr old deer every year but loose a lot around the rut when they get pushed to the neighbors. This has been a great year for horn growth for us. A lot of deer made good jumps.
