On Jan. 1, 1999 I shot a young buck that weighed 175 lbs. However, he only had a scrawny 4-point rack. I used a Marlin 1894 .44 Rem. Mag. (Federal 185-grain JHP) at 75 yards.
At this location, there is plenty of protein, because of the soybean farm, but I suspect the area lacks in the minerals necessary to produce huge racks. I've seen other large bucks with small racks.
