Worth County Wallhanger Only 2 1/2 Years Old

GON Staff | December 21, 1989

Although there has yet to be a Boone and Crockett record book buck killed in Georgia this season, there have been a number of outstanding bucks killed. Mike Roberts Jr., 22, of Sylvester, was one of the lucky hunters.

Mike shot a 235-lb. live-weight Worth County buck on Nov. 13. Like many of the big bucks killed this year, the deer was shot just before dark. The buck was trailing a doe and had just stepped out of a pine thicket when Mike shot. 

The rack had an inside spread of 19 2/8 inches, and its longest beam measured 28 inches long.

Game and Fish Biologist Bill Cooper green-scored the rack at 160 2/8 B&C inches. A rack must dry for at least 60 days before it can be officially scored.

What makes this buck more amazing is that it was only 2 1/2 years old. Makes you wonder what it might have been at 4 1/2.
