    That is a huge buck. It's got a 24+" inside spread and the beams come all the way back around. What a giant.

    Great story too. The guy who shot him sounds like a very humble and grateful guy. Big congrats to him on a trophy of a lifetime.

    And sadly that's a deduction of over 20" if I read the net/gross right. (Main beams can only be as long as the spread?)

    Net's are for fish! :p

    Here are the numbers from the article:

    Left G2: 18 inches
    Right G2: 16-6/8
    Inside Spread: 24-3/8
    Left main beam: 35-1/8
    Right main beam: 34-4/8
    Green gross: 249-5/8
    Green net: 232-5/8

    I agree, nets are for fish, score em how they grow.
