    My #1 bucks never make it. That's why I gave up having #1 bucks. It's always such a disappointment.

    Now there is just a pool of deer that I will shoot if and when they get close enough.

    Bummer! At least you know, and you can make a nice euro mount if you wanted.

    Probably hard to tell if it was hit by a car, shot by a hunter or just died of old age. Any idea?

    That's an unfortunate end to him. I wonder if a possible injury that might of caused is left side to grow funky could of been his demise. A very very cool buck to say the least.

    Not really sure. Tough to tell. Ribs weren't broken. I'll try to find a trail cam pic of him. He was an old dude.
