“It was pretty cool how it all went down and when we found him the size of his body was, he looked so ginormous; he had so much fat on him,” Miller said.

The 12-pointer had an inside spread measurement of 17 inches. “Dressed out he was about 165 pounds, so his live weight was probably close to 200 pounds,” he said.

The age of the buck, according to Miller, was about 4-and-a-half years old.
