Monster Buck from Michigan

Wow, check out this monster buck from Michigan! The report we have from Joe Brooks is that this buck died in someone’s backyard, possibly from natural causes or being hit by a car.  Coyotes had eaten most of the carcass making the cause of death impossible to determine.

Without a doubt this was a really old buck and this winter has been a real tough one throughout the Midwest so its hard to tell. While we can’t be sure about what got him the fact is this buck is world class, which is a rarity for Michigan. This giant whitetail has exceptional width and mass, looks like a mainframe 12 point with, split brows and 10 or more stickers.

    I’d like to clarify a few details about the monster buck in Michigan story. It was not found in a back yard but on a small plot of land in Lenawee County by a friend while out walking her dog. This picture was taken in my barn, but the three people pictured have nothing to do with this deer. The cause of death is unknown, but does not appear to be from old age. After viewing the jaw bone and teeth, we believe this deer is younger than the rack leads you to believe. Probably 4-1/2 to 5-1/2. The DNR is doing a complete ageing analysis. The gross green score is 257.2 (net 247.4) and will be re-scored by a panel after the 60-day drying period.
