    My dad found this buck back in 86' in SE Idaho. Thought I would share. I scored him at 217 gross. Not sure how accurate I am so could be 207 for all I know. Trying to talk my dad into getting it officially scored.

    Thought you guys would get a kick out of a buck from the 'good ole days'

    Definitely one you won't see. I was messaged on Facebook today when I posted this and was told if this scores what I scored him at this is the new Idaho State record typical apparently and #2 in the world. Will have to look it up. I'm guessing I'm off at least 5 but who knows.

    Great buck. The deductions will hurt the final net score but still a giant buck.

    Too bad everyone in the world is hunting up here now. People need to fix their fish and games locally. Nice buck. Here is one from a friends father over that way.

    That's a heck of a buck! Know what area? Seems like a lot of these caliber of bucks came out of the same area.

    And there is definitely a lot of issues that need to be headed differently. More people are hunting and there's just not the caliber of bucks anymore. An average hunter might see a big mature buck every 5 years or so. Used to be every season back in the day.
