The story of these massive shed antlers
The antlers were found as sheds back in 2015 and the buck was killed in 2017, but it had dropped quite a few inches. Indiana Heard Management tells the story in one of their Facebook posts.
Biggest typical whitetail to walk the face of the earth, right here in Indiana. The sheds from 2015 could score bigger than any sheds in history, and as a 10 pt.! Given a reasonable spread credit this buck would have shattered the typical world record 12 pt. Hansen buck. This buck walked right here in Indiana, and was harvested by Andrea Moffett in 2017. Still a giant by anybody’s standards, grossing at 200 and netting 180 as a 9 point, but he lost several inches from his 10 pt. 2015 world record antlers.
So is this the largest typical to ever walk the face of the Earth? I guess we will never really know for sure.
