    This was in the local paper....

    Local hunter in Russell County finds a near 200” GIANT dead on his farm, hate that it ended that way for this once in a lifetime buck!!
    Gross 197 5/8”, Net 175 2/8”, 23 1/2” inside spread.

    I tried to post a photo.... Russell county deer.jpg

    I've seen some giants in Russell county. I had a 450 yard shot at one several years ago that I believe was even bigger than this one. He was moving and I had very little confidence that I could have put him down....it was a standing freehand shot....so I didn't pull the trigger.

    Looks like the coyotes ate his nose off. Must have been an overnight recovery.
