    Nov. 14th: I spotted this buck herding a doe shortly after day break. Unfortunately they were on property that I could not hunt on.

    The buck was being bother by other bucks wanting to get to "his" doe so I sat and watch them. Finally, the doe had enough; got up and starting running. They jumped the fence crossed the road and jumped the fence again.

    Now they were running straight at a very brushy ditch and a small wood lot that was my neighbor’s property which I could hunt; and part of that little brushy draw was on my property.

    I sat down in that ditch by the deer trail for two and a half hours before this doe came walking by at 20 yards. The buck was right behind her; the 45-70 barked………….

    This rack was rough scored by a certified score whom happens to be a taxidermist.

    The deer is a main frame 8 with a lot of massive throughout.

    23” inside spread
    26” main beams
    40+” of circumfirence
    Gross Score: 181

    Great buck!!!! Awesome 8!! But 23in spread + 26in beams + 40in circum = 115. Which means you would have to have 66 inches in tine length....Im not seeing that.

    Very nice buck! Although, I'm not sure you can really classify a .45-70 as barking...that's more of a thunderous roar, isn't it? :D
