Default WV Deer

Here's my WV deer this year. Hardest I ever worked for an animal! Property was about a 45 degree cut in the mountain and deer fell about 200yds. down the hill. Weighed as much if not more than me ... 2 hours to drag up to the flat where I could get the Jeep. But worth every minute of it!

Thanx! Not sure on weight ... we don't have a scale. He is a decent sized deer ... here is a shot with me for size reference (I am 6' tall, 165#).

Now that's funny! We stayed in Glenville and hunted in Calhoun Co.! About 2 miles from Annamoriah.
