I went to see my taxidermist tonight. There sitting in a bag was a double main beam, drop tine 18 pointer that was dropped off yesterday from a hunter who hunted down in MONMOUTH COUNTY!!!! Brownstones, GunnyFern, and I saw it !!!!!! I would say this rack would score somewhere in the 160s[up]

Did they say were in monmouth.....I saw a ten point last year that was killed in Dec , It was in full velvet they said that it was over seven years old and the reason he never sheded off his velvet was because he had no testosterone left (spelling?)..I think it was taken in Colts Neck....

I know of a 160 cl [no swearing please] main frame 8 point with stickers that was shot and checked in All Seasons Taxidermy in Old bridge - saw pics- didnt think it had double main beams. But it was shot down here.

Tommy, are you sure they didnt say he had no testicles? I know that would be hard to mistake, but...:D

Because a buck that loses his testicles while in velvet, remains in velvet, and the rack never falls off. If they happen to lose them while they have no antlers, they grow abnormal antlers and then keep those for life. I believe they call it a "Gelding" (sp?) when they lose their "manhood".....Although I could be confusing that with something to do with horses. ????[confused]:D

BHC, if you didn't say it was from Mommouth County I would have guessed it came from the high fence place in Hardyston where it is archery only and no deer count toards B&C.

Kah1993 lots of areas around that you can shoot a gun, I see a ton of deer on 520 and 537. Monmouth County usually produces some big bucks. Colts neck is a great area for deer, but unfortunately it is a no firearms discharge area, unless you have a farmers permit or special permit.
