Road-Kill Monster Bucks

It is that time of year, when the bucks start running, that some giants are killed by cars. Sad they had to go that way, and sad for the guys who were hunting them. Disclaimer: Pictures like this travel fast on the Web and the stories can get twisted around, so the locations may or may not be accurate.

The double-drop dream buck above was supposedly hit on the Baltimore Beltway on Oct. 22, 2012.

I got 2 emails about this massive buck. One said it was hit near South Hill, VA and the other said it was in Pennsylvania.

David in NC's Gravatar I'd be willing to bet a paycheck that second deer isn't from South Hill, VA....

Matt's Gravatar Wow. That bottom buck is the dream! Goodness. I know everyone likes the top because of the drops, but the mass on the bottom is just gorgeous.

BJ's Gravatar I agree with Matt - mass really makes a rack stand out. Hey Mike - how much snow do you have on the ground now?

Greg Brownlee's Gravatar Hate to see this. About 8 years ago I was leaving a friends house after dark and a giant ran in front of my truck in the middle of a neighborhood in South Tulsa chasing a doe. I missed him by about 5 feet. 2 days later his dad called and said the buck got hit. I have photos of him somewhere, he was in the 160's frame wise as a 10 with 5 or 6 stickers. Living in a 10 acre green belt!

Cody's Gravatar And I would also believe that top buck was killed around Baltimore. I worked from DC up to PA and all over central and eastern MD for about 7 months this year. I saw more big bucks in velvet there than I've ever seen down here, I mean absolute giants. Nothing as NT as this but we all know big bucks grow in small areas, very possible

Slayer's Gravatar I live in south hill and haven't heard about that buck. So I HIGHLY doubt it was killed here.
