Hey me and my brothers were talking about this deer the other day. What is the story on the landowner taking the deer. I have heard that he had permision and that he weaseled his way out of it just curious.
A massive, non-typical whitetail deer rack with 24 scoreable points was officially scored at the Oklahoma Wildlife Expo, Saturday, August 27, at the Lazy E Arena. Measuring 248 6/8 inches, the deer was taken by Michael Crossland of Grandfield and is the new number one Cy Curtis entry.
