You hear about the Worth CO. Buck that was killed this past weekend?? I saw a picture of it but can't find the story yet. Heard it is going in the GON. 23 pts and 275 lbs.

You got me on that one! I hadn't heard, but when you said Worth county, I'm not surprised at the size of the deer.

For the longest time, there was a tie for the 2 heaviest whitetails ever taken. They were  both 355 pounds field dressed.

One was shot in Maine and the other was shot in Worth county. Worth county has a lot of land in crops and its mostly privately owned land. Toss in the fact that when the area was restocked back in the early 60s, the deer came from Wisconsin, and you can see that would all add up to some big deer.  :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

The hunter was a guy from Tallahassee who was hunting on land owned by his family. Shot it back in 1972 in the middle of a corn field.

Going to have to get that issue of GON!! O0 O0 O0

Man! what a deer!
This deer was taken about 50 miles from where I hunt. Lots of heavy farm land up that way.
