Huge Kansas dead head?
« on: January 08, 2023, 01:44:19 PM »
Supposedly some woman in Wichita Kansas was fishing and found this giant dead head in the water. Anyone else see it?

With a rack like that, it could probably drown just from trying to get a drink.

Otherworldly.  Way too much calcium in the water there, apparently...  :o

Anyone say it was fished from the bottom, they said found.

The further one goes into the wilderness, the greater the attraction of its lonely freedom.

Two thoughts, I wonder if it should be dated?  Could it have been preserved somehow and it's really old?  Or, maybe it came from a high fenced herd and somehow ended up in the river?

My immediate thoughts was high fence. Maybe they were fishing a pond in a high fence area :chuckle: who knows🤷🏻‍♂️

Poached from high fence area somewhere else then thrown in water and "found" a year or two later for attention.  :dunno:

I bet that was a high fence deer that got poached and someone ditched the evidence in the water.

Why poach a high fence deer if you're not planning to keep the antlers?

I'm choosing to believe it's on the up and up until shown otherwise. Cool deer, even cooler find. I swear Ive found the coolest stuff on the ground wandering ricer banks and stream beds.

 If you owned a high fence ranch, wouldn’t you know if this buck was on your land?…I would! :twocents:

Prob why it's in the creek, maybe it was poached and the azz hats realized they could never hide it?  :dunno:
