Default Fort Benning big one

I shot this big boy Friday afternoon after work. I was slipping along an old tote road. I knew there was a big buck in that piece but not this big. Anyone know a good taxidermist in Columbus? What do you all think he'd score? He is my biggest racked buck to date.

Not in the Columbus area but if you want a quality mount, I highly recommend Andy Nimmons in Lexington,Ga. I know there are others out there just as good as he but I have several mounts done by him and narry one complaint from me.

Awesome buck!

West Georgia Taxidermy in Lagrange did an awesome job on a fish mount for my son. He had a lot of his work hanging that looked amazing.

Ya done good. That's a nice one. Hope you do find a good taxidermist. Check out their work first to make sure it meets your approval before committing.

There is a guy in Phenix City that does it from his home. Did a real good job on mine. His name is Scott Johnson. I will find his number and ship it your way. Nice deer. I grew up hunting Benning and never killed one that nice!

Thanks fellas. I was thinking 130. There are some big ones out there. I have another on camera just a little smaller that has yet to be seen in the daylight. I'm tagged out on bucks so one of my hunting buddies has a chance.

Nice buck! Congrats! I grew up hunting Ft. Benning also, but never saw any that size. They are out there and you proved that. Looks like he's been doin' lots of rubbing.
I have one on the way to Master Taxidermy off of River Road. I've never used them before, but Bruce was recommended by more than one person.
Congrats on a great buck! Let us know who you decide to use.

I've used Scott as well for an elk and a whitetail. The elk was fantastic...the whitetail good, but not as good. I think he was letting a new helper learn with mine cause he is usually high quality from everything I hear and what I see in my elk mount.

Thanks again fellas. I'll tell you he came from an area with acorns and does. I've put over 150 clicks on these boots scouting according to my GPS. That information don't get given out. I will tell you there are more big deer on Benning then I thought when I moved here this summer. We've had great success setting up on acorns that are in funnels away from the main roads. Most guys drive their trucks out, park, walk 200 meters and plop down pushing everything our way when that doesn't happen we still are looking at the prime food source.

Congrats on a great buck. I would guess 120-135 on the score, you can measure for yourself and get a green score. http://www.boone-crockett.org/bgreco...Whitetail+Deer
I don't know a columbus Taxidermist.

Default Great buck!

Thatís a great buck. You wonít kill many bigger than him on Benning. The daylight pics are better than the night harvest shot. I didnít realize he was as big until I saw them on here. Who is mounting him? I use Freddie Wynn-Trekbark, he does a solid job at reasonable prices. He is mounting my 11 point from last fall. Stick a pic of the mount when yours is done. Congratulations, great buck!

Just don't make the same mistake I did. Find a quality taxidermist that you can trust to do it right.
