Default Public hunt dream buck

Glen and I were lucky enough to get drawn for a hunt at the Kerr WMA this week. We have been posting some on another thread in the public hunt section but I figured this deer deserved a post of his own. Just a dream buck for me! Biologist scored it at 167 gross and 161 and change net. The pics don't really don't do it justice! Service isn't great here so I'm hoping this works. I'll add some more pics and info tonight when we get back to where we are staying!

Thanks for the help Bobby! Maybe one day I'll grow up and be able to make all the tech stuff work.

Little more info about him. The tpwd folks knew this deer and were glad I got him. His teeth were flat worn out so definately over 6. Two years ago he had a drop and may have been on the way down. The pictures really don't do him justice though. I dont remember all the measurement but they suprised all of us. Main beams were 25, bases were right at 6 I think, and he just carrys his mass all over. Everything is pretty matched too. Biologist said it was very rare for a main frame 8 to score 167 and net 161. I don't know about all that but he is a monster for me!

Thanks for all the kind words and congrats! And a huge thanks tpwd and the folks running this hunt, we are having a fantastic time. And finally thanks to Glen hes a great friend to share these hunts with!
