    If it’s the same buck I seem to recall they were on a canoe trip with family somewhere. Stopped for a break and found it buried in the mud.

    There was also a few fake stories going around fb about that deer aswell. I recall seeing them when the story was originally posted here.

    I live in Hopkinsville. All accounts I’ve heard seem to point to the story being true and accurate. It was found in Lake Blythe (an old watershed lake).
    Lake Blythe is extremely close to the city dump. My theory (and it’s just a theory) is that this buck had spent its life in the city dump. He lived a life in around the dump (unseen and unbothered) and eventually wandered off and died. Just my theory.

    Jim Strader had the guy who found it on his show and posted about it on his Facebook page. All seems legit.

    No surprise that a buck like that did NOT die at the hands of a hunter (I’m guessing he didn’t get shot and run off and die). Heck of a buck for sure.
