Hey fellas, sorry to just now respond. I don't get the chance to get on here much. Yes, this deer was killed in the wild and yes, it was in Kansas. But I personally have seen deer bigger than this on farms that I hunt in Tennessee. I am blessed with the opportunity to get to go out there but I can promise you that I have seen deer that were quite a bit larger than this buck in Montgomery and Robertson counties. If anyone that Tennessee is not capable of producing the exact same caliber of deer as states like Kansas is crazy! They might not be as plentiful but they are there and if you hunt in the agricultural counties of middle TN that lie along the KY border, you WILL see deer this big and bigger from time to time.

We CAN produce bucks comparable to Kansas, but in relatively much smaller numbers, and in tougher-hunting environments. You typically CAN NOT find every year's sheds here like you may be able to in parts of Kansas due to the habitat differences.

Not meaning to take away from a great story and accomplishment, particularly in having found several years' sheds on that buck, it typically remains a greater hunting challenge to take a mature buck of that caliber in TN vs. any Midwestern State (such as Kansas, Iowa, Illinois, etc.)

Regardless of the State taken, this remains quite an accomplishment in my book, and I congratulate both you and your hunting buddy.

You mean you actually hunt and don't stay on TNDeer 24/7? What a stud of a buck! I agree with you that there is something just a little bit touching/sad to see an old warrior go down. However, you earned it and that makes it all the more respectable in my book. What a hoss, he just has an old weathered/white/gray look to him too! First thing I noticed was all the fat rolls on his neck. I would just love to see a buck that large in person some day. What a brute!
