Yesterday pictures of a massive dead head took the internet by storm. Jason Kline found the huge animal in North West Ohio. That deadhead has now been scored.
The score is considered a ‘green score’ because it has not been through the official drying phase. When a buck is killed or found, an initial score is called a ‘green score.’ The antlers must then wait 60 days to be officially scored. This is considered the drying phase since the antlers shrink during this time. Since this buck has been dead a while, I suspect the antlers will not shrink much in the next two months.
This buck has been confirmed to be a free-range deer on private land. While this buck is not the biggest in history, it will sit in the record books as one of the biggest, scoring over 240″! Below you can see the official scoring sheet from this impressive animal.
