He scored 148 4/8ths, over 250 pounds dressed.
Darnember, he is going in the freezer but here in Iowa there is a program called HUSH (Help Us Stop Hunger) where you can donate any deer taken to specific meat lockers that will process the meat and the state pays the processing fee and the meat goes to helping. Folks who can't always afford a decent meal.
250+ field dressed? Damn, that is huge. What state you take him in, Iowa?
Congrats on a great buck!
Yup, southeast Iowa. Saw another in the neighbor's yard across the road while headed out coonhunting that is close to the same size. Hope the doe he's chasing stays in the area and brings him past my son in the morning.
I still can't get over that deer! The head on that thing is like a cow! Damn boy, you did good!
That's one heck of a buck. Bigger than anything I have seen in 35 years of bowhunting. May you have many more during your career.
Kicking myself in the arse for shooting the little guy I got a few days before this one. Had another big boy chasing a doe around me this morning. Figured it'd happen since all I have now are doe tags. May have to use the bow during late muzzleloader, that is IF I want to put up with the cold temps at that time.
