4 years ago I seen one chasin a doe. 2 1/2 year old 11 point bout 14 inches wide, coulda killed him 10 times but if his rack aint screwd up or goin on the wall I wont pull the trigger. The following bow season I had an run in with him again. Stayed 60-70 yards away in the peanut feild. This time he was a shooter and his drop was about 5 inches. Later own in the season my neighbor had an encounter with him and missed. Never sen him again untill the next opening weekend of bow season when the ppl that just leased 35 acre's of planted pines that but up to a swap on our property killed him on opening day. Still an 11 with a 8 inch drop. Deer green scored 158 and some change. I was glad for the guy and at the same time wish I woulda killed him when I had the chance. 1st and only drop tine deer I have ever seen in the wild!! Me or any of our neighbors didnt get any trail camera pics of him.

I have seen two, both big racked deer, but the only one i ever shot was a 9 pts that had a small pointed drop tine..Usually drop tines are bulbous on the end.... this little 1.5" 'drop" tine was more like an upside down point!!


I was with my buddy when he found both sides of a 16 pters sheds , both sides had a drop....nice!!

I think it was high fence, and it was strictly managed. The deer there had to be like 8 years old and were fed strait up protien year round.

I figured it was something like that based on the lake and pine plantation.

And the antlers.
