He was an absolute tank! Soon as I saw him I didn’t care about what was on his head lol. Then I walked up and saw the rolls on his neck and couldn’t believe it. I honestly thought the scale was broke at the processor when it was only 168 haha. Think that gets me to 210-220 for live weight but he had to be more

Last year I saw antlers and a large bodied deer so I focused on the deer. Took the 18yd shot from the ground and killed the buck, but was surprised it was only a 4pt. It weighed 143lb total weight, which is on the heavy side for buck in this area of Florida. It was only 1.5yo, which I'm bummed now as he had the genetics to be a really heavy body as a mature deer. But he was a legal public land buck so I'm not dwelling on it!

Thanks! He's a tank @175 lbs dressed. Don't normally see them this heavy over here.
You have any other pics of your deer laying there? I've had over a dozen people tell my deer is heavier than 168 gutted but that's what the processors scale said. Not that it matters to anything but my brain lol but I'm curious. Would be great to have more pix of your deer for reference.

Great week guys! We're in 1st by 13. Lets keep dropping those does.

I don't know if he's just humped up a bit laying there, but that guy looks like a tank!

No doubt about it. When the processor went to say his weight I was half expecting the number to start with a 2 but I've only shot one other deer close to this one in size and I didn't get that one weighed so I really don't know. I only weigh 155 but he easily outweighed me gutted and I was thinking he was probably 250 live weight. All a guess though. His neck was 18 inches right behind the ears.

I've gotten to be a pretty decent blood trailer, but it's always nice when you don't have to be haha... What broadhead you use?
I used to have a lab that was an awesome tracker. First year without him so I figured I'd better make sure my shots count lol. I switched to kudu points this year. Didn't go super crazy on the heavy arrow thing though. Pretty impressed with them, a lot internal damage and caught the back shoulder blade and still a complete pass through.

I woke up at 4:30 this morning. Looked at the weather to see which way the wind was gonna be blowing. Then saw rain in the forecast for the first 3 hours.. I let the dog out and went back to bed. Would have went if it was a few weeks later in the year closer to rut. But not today. Weather looks to be clearing up mostly for this evening. Gonna probably head out into some public this evening.

Thought I was gonna be clear. Started raining with 1.5hr to go. Pretty hard for the last 45 mins. Should have came down and slow walked back to the truck. Saw a fresh doe track in the mucky part I crossed.
This public land stuff is kicking my butt. I have yet to see a deer on stand in public.

Nice work boys!! I’ve passed on a few does since my first doe this year. No opportunities on any good bucks yet but hopefully they’ll be moving in the day light soon
