I think it was 1953 and it came out of the Lincoln Creek area, west of Centralia.

There were 2 of them out of the same general area a couple of years apart, 1953 sounds right. They both scored around 183". Neither one of them had been scored until a few years ago.

Seriously I cant even think of one 160" buck thats come out of WA since ive been alive. There may have been or two but nothing that comes remotely close to the top 3. Was there some sort of crazy wild fire that happened in the 50s that caused amazing horn growth? Trying to come up with some sort of reasoning for it.

I encourage people to look at the buck in the Boone and Crockett files, MASSIVE   :drool:
Kindly do not attempt to cloud the issue with too many facts.

The game dept. did some transplanting of mule deer into SW WA in at least two of the counties listed, in the early fifties.  My hunting partners' uncle helped with transport and release.  One of his buddies killed at least one in the top 10 WA blacktails, that he had scored at least.

The Yacolt Burn in the end totaled more than 500,000 acres of burnt forest in 1902 and the Dole Valley fire added another near 200,000 in 1929.  That should have made western deer forage awful dang good for growing big bucks.  With added regulation and techniques for fighting wildfires the last "Great Wildfire" in western Washington was in 1952.  It's my belief that this had a great deal to do with so many monster blacktails being harvested prior to 1960 and very few since.
He asked, Do you ever give a short simple answer?  I replied, "Nope."
