Thanks to T.J. for this report from the deep South, where the rut rocks in December:
Mike: I am sending you this picture to show how big the bucks can get down here. This buck was taken off a good friend of mine’s hunting lease in Vicksburg, MS. He’s a main-frame 8-point with a split G-2, split brow tine, and a lot of kickers off his bases. 20 inches wide, 26-inch beams and a green score of 173 inches! Well over 200 pounds, a true Mississippi stud.
Wow, check the mass, awesome. Thanks T.J. I gotta get back down to Mississippi and hunt soon.
