Great name. Should have gone big on the bet. I took the Giants-straight up-teased it and parlayed it. Went big on Sunday, needless-to-say! P.S. Love the blog.

I'm Mike Hanback and I'm a droptineaholic.

I wonder if there is a 12 step program?


Mike I lost $500 on NE straight up!

I seriously doubt that the 203 is only 3.5 years old. It is more likely that the buck went from 3.5 to 4.5. Research has shown that bucks make the biggest increase (130%) in overall gross score between those two years. The explosion you speak of makes this claim even more valid. It's a great buck any way you slice it.

I'd also like to add that this is another fine example of how Eruption Toothwear Method of aging whitetails has so many holes in it. The method has been researched and shown that it is only accurate between 40-45% of the time...even for trained biologists. Hanback, will you ask Dr. Woods about ETW method of aging sometime and see what he has to say about it?

Thanks for sharing Doug! Both are great bucks!

MK--you're right, I chickened out, would have bought 2K to the house if I had laid down original bet.
