Good gosh that is a stud and a half! Shame that's how he was killed. That's a buck of a lifetime low fence. Wish he had ran over to our place instead of across the road

I was one of the Officers that responded to this call. That was a heck of a buck for this area and it's sad he went this way.

They can give you a tag for a road kill deer here in Texas, I've gotten one. I hunt neighborhood deer most of the time. Just after I crawled up in the stand, one of the neighbors leaves for works and hits a deer. They stop for a minute, then keep on rolling. Come about 8:30, I'm just getting ready to climb down, and someone else drives by, slams on the brakes, backs up and 3 guys pile out of the truck. They start looking around, and one sees me up in the tree. Waves, they all get back in the truck and go on about their business. I get down, and walk over and there is a little basket 7 point in the ditch with it's back broken, but still very much alive. Being that it was an illegal buck due to antler restrictions, I called the local warden (who also happened to live in the same subdivision). Told him the story, and he asks if I can humanely and safely dispatch it. Bang! Dead deer. He told me to hang tight for a few minutes and he would come tag it for me. Only lost a few inches of backstrap to the injury. He ate good.

Hey guys, it was my buck I've had pictures of him for the last three years and I'm still in shock an disbelief!! We first noticed him in the 2015 season as a 11 put around 120-130" an have been feeding protein for the last two years an really felt like we were gonna get him this year!! I'm hoping to maybe get the antlers to have it shoulder mounted.

That will probably not happen but maybe you can talk them into letting you have a replica made. Best of luck and sorry for your misfortune!

It is all up to the game warden and his decision, an know matter what it is all I can do is support it!!! I'm just hoping he is also a hunter and know what I'm going through, that is a once in a lifetime buck an I'm trying to raise my son in the outdoors an show him what hard work an dedication will produce in the outdoors!!

May have missed the response...but, do we have any GW's on the GS that can state what happens with the Buck besides donating any salvageable meat? What happens to the "Rack?" Like many of the GS, I've passed many a Buck that was road kill, seen many where the head was missing so assuming it was a Buck?
