It has been well over the 60 days required to get an official score on the massive controversial buck from Morgan Cty. What has happened to this deer? Has anyone heard anything new about this brute?

Hasn't been scored as far as I know.

The deer hasn't been scored to my knowledge. And, the family doesn't seem to be responding to anyone's requests to do so. Don't know what will happen now.

don't get your hopes up

I just talked to John a little while ago Bo. He tried to give them a call and the numbers no longer exist.

who knows?

The trauma of harvesting a world class buck that is close to being a world record has ruined this poor kid's existence (and his family). Or, he could just still be looking for someone to score the point next to the right brow time as the G2. Or, he could have sold it. Or, which I believe, it was all done with smoke and mirrors. I hope the poor kid doesn't turn into a monster buck slaying hermit like Rompala. I demand to see an X-ray!!

I've heard that they changed thier phone # and that the buck is going to score or net close to 200 inches due to the deductions. It is still one HECK of a buck!!!!!I heard this from some one in the IDHA. I hope we get to see this GIANT up at the show in INDY. does anyone know if they are bringing it?
I want to see how my 184' looks beside him.:evil:

show

At least we'll be able to see your 184" at the show. Oh, and if the Ferguson buck is there (which it won't be), yours will look small next to it.

Sam, you're right, there were DNR people saying that the rack was going to be confiscated.

Still did not answer the question. What Officer, what county? When we have questions we call the Officer assigned to that particular area. In this case....it is my county. Any questions give us a call , there are 3 of us assigned here and I can assure you we are all on the same page.

With all the mystery surrounding the Morgantown Buck....will that increase or decrease the VALUE of the story when it is SOLD?


Whats known so far.....

The deer was NOT checked in by the successfull hunter

The fella that did have time to transport the "RECORD CALLIBER" deer to the check station, had ALREADY checked in a buck deer in his name during the 2005 deer season

The fella that checked the deer agreed to wear a "Outdoorsman" hat for the photo opportunity

It all may very well be a "staged" event. Build a mystery into the record deer and jack up the price for the "real story".

The "mystery" was staged from the very first post that hit the internet about this deer.

what story?

What story? That's why all the bs is still going on. Sure would be nice to see it exposed in some form other than this stuff, it would be good for Indiana. I think a lot of people's patience have worn thin. Maybe it is just all about money.

Isn't it just sad that deer hunting has come to "just all about money"?

If we cant do some inner soul searching after this Jimmy Houston thing we need to examine our motives for deer hunting.

The days of just going deer hunting for fun is rapidly coming to a close. it is getting more and more about who can kill the biggest, get their name in some book and maybe make some money in the process.

Truly sad and we have no one to blame but ourselves.

Morgan County Buck

I couldn't agree more. There are so many guys out there that are taking the fun out of this activity. For some guys/gals it is all about heads/antlers.

Maybe the guy that shot this buck doesn't want to share his success with the world. Maybe he is a private kind of guy. No need to try and make more of this situation than is factually correct. Stop the speculation. This story may never be published.
