My dog and I took a walk yesterday in a small drainage on USFS land about a 20 minute drive from our ranch. We were looking for shed antlers and came across this! About 1 mile from the truck in a general deer unit. We did not find any shed antlers yesterday, although my wife found a brown 3-point shed last weekend in the same area.
26" spread. More pictures soon.

That is an awesome buck! Especially for a Montana General unit.

If you measured him, whats he gross score? Also post up a picture if you care to after you boil him out.

Congrats on the find!

Great find! Could you tell what killed it? Lion, wolves?

Not certain how he died. My guess is a mountain lion, but not sure. He's all caped and should be cleaned up enough in a day or two for a new picture. Then, I'll be sure to post another picture and a gross score too.
The only bucks I saw during hunting season were small 3 pt bucks and a hand full of does. Nothing even close to this guy!

Unofficial gross score 185 6/8. The boiler is currently not working, so I'll post better photos when he's finished.
