Default 2020 kansas GIANT home. 190"

He's finally home. Super happy with the mount. Hard to get a good idea of his size, so I hung my next best (170) by him for comparison. This deer was big, (body). 55ish lbs heavier than our biggest before him. 274lbs on the hoof according to our scale. With that said, I've heard of bigger, just haven't seen it. Taxidermist said they had to pour a custom mold for him. . I cooked a couple shoulder roasts at work the other day, one from him and one from a mature doe. You can see the blade difference in last pic.

Nice, very nice. Anything that makes a 170" look small is BIG. Congratulations.

Did you happen to get a "rack" weight on him? That would be gutted, skinned, head removed and all legs cut off at the knees. This would be the carcass at a processor, or known as hanging weight. I shot one that I couldn't weigh in the field, but did get a rack weight from the processor. Trying to scale his on the hoof weight.

Again, congratulations.

No I didn't, live weight was all I got. Was too wound up to think about much. Hell I don't even have a picture of him with my bow in it. I was all giddy like a little school girl.

Those giant midwest deer are just a different breed and I LOVE chasing them. I've got a 170" from Iowa at the taxi now but dang your KS deer is a hammer for sure! Those bases!!! Congrats on a giant.

I remember the day you shot that one. I was Super Excited for you. You and that deer have been the topic of conversation with a lot of my Kansas Friends when I am up there. They were is awe of the size of him. The true picture of his rack is indeed the Coke Can Pic..

I would love to see a that mount in Person... Stud of a Buck...

I was following the live thread when you posted the late evening pic of that huge framed deer. I started typing that he was a giant with crazy mass and stupid g2s. I'm hoping he comes back tomorrow in better light.

Next pic was a lit noc!!!! I couldn't sit still for wanting to see him. I remember saying a prayer for a quick recovery.
