Default Giant Lampasas Buck

Just wanted to show off this deer from Lampasas and the story behind it.

My girlfriend and I were driving north on 281 late Friday (10/6) night headed to her family's ranch when this guy ran out in front of me. I was able to avoid the buck, but the car next to me was not so lucky. We instantly pulled over to assist the gentleman who was shaken up pretty bad, but luckily no serious physical damage to him. I was unable to move the car due to the entire front end being smashed, so we called the police to assist in moving the car off the road since other drivers were driving by extremely fast and we concerned someone else would hit the stalled car. While all this was going on, I knew the buck had to be back in the ditch somewhere and I knew he was big, but I had no idea....

Hopefully the game warden makes a good mount out of it and other people get to see him. I came up with around 175 total, 16 scorable points. 86 up, 76 down, 18 wide.

Does anyone hunt 5 miles south of Lampasas? Anyone have pics of this deer?

Would have made some hunters dream come true. The warden would have gave you some paperwork to posses the deer if it had been a runt.

Meat most likely all jello! I tried to cut one up that was run over in Virginia when I was on the Navy base....head to bumper is good meat. Bumper to body equals jello meat. Lol...I'm sure the wardens will mount that toad for sure. Most other states law enforcement allows people to take deer or other animals like elk and other deer types if they hit them by accident...have special tags for...I guess they think if Texas allowed that all the high school boys would be road hunting with their vehicles. Literally

I know the guy that was after this buck. He's had pics from the last two years. My buddy from the fire dept sent me a pic and I relayed the pic to my buddy that was hunting him. Sad deal for sure.
