Use this thread for bucks your buddy shot, hit by a truck, bucks you saw online or even FB.

Smasher road kill on RT 4 headed towards Rangeley this week. All bone. View attachment 22252
I went by this buck on Sunday right after it got hit on my way home from Moose scouting. He was a cranker. He had just shed his velvet, his antlers were still redish pink. I went by only a couple minutes after being hit.

Congrats to your friend on the bloody antler buck...that must look wild out in the woods.

I can’t believe it’s still had a head. In my area the things head would’ve been gone in two minutes. Do you know how to take the head off a deer in 30 seconds with only a knife?

Some very large bucks have already been taken in the expanded zones this year.

LOL. There were 5 suv and trucks pulled over...I'm sure they were all waiting for a chance to take that buck home. It was Noon on a very busy main road...something had to have jumped the buck or had it cornered for it to try to cross the road at that time.
