While out antler hunting my Son found this pig in the brush. Its a stud whitetail for this area of Wyoming. Hes 20 3/4" outside spread with 24" beams. Gross scores 156 6/8 with 4 7/8 in deductions which nets him at 151 7/8. I would guess he was probably shot and never found but who knows? At any rate, its a great buck and my son was super excited to find him.

It seems to me that he shed a bit more than most deer do this time of year. Too bad, but a nice find non the less.

Great Wyoming Whitey! Net 150 plus is a shooter in my book. I agree with wolftalonID he is shedding but looks to me like he had some lice issues. Mike

Wow! I'd say that's a stud in any area. Too bad he didn't make it, but congrats to your son on a great find!

Judging by the second pic, it looks like you live over the hill from me.

nice, no kidding, that's a shooter anywhere. He looks bigger than he scores to me.

That's a shooter even here in Iowa.

Jen...We were along the face south of Big Goose. Didn't find many antlers here though. Most of the deer seem to be lower with all the snow this year.

Great looking "dead head". Wish we had some whitetail here in Utah.

Great find! Certainly seems like a conservative score to me! Which I appreciate these days.

Good job! I know some people that sure try!

Beautiful skull, man. Congrats to you and your son on the great find!

Along the same vein, here's a couple of Iowa skulls a friend found. They aren't western but... mid-WEST?: http://www.greathuntingstories.com/Stories/tabid/61/ID/138/Iowa_Land_of_the_Giants.aspx
