The pics were taken in western Colorado in a limited entry area. Sorry, but these are the only pics we have of him. Nobody we know has seen him again to this day. If someone killed him I am sure we would have heard about it. ( that rack was sure to gain some recognition)
Yeah, that is the buck everyone wakes up dreaming about. He has long, sweating main beams, deep forks in the back, good deep forks in the front, all of his tines looong, a kicker on the side. Man, I need to wake up from this dream and go hunting. LOL
What does "gauge" mean anyway? As used here gauge means the number of round lead balls the same diameter as the inside of the barrel (aka the bore) that it would take to weigh one pound. It takes 12 lead balls the same diameter as a 12 gauge barrel to weigh a pound. The smaller 20 gauge would require 20 balls of that barrel diameter. The larger bore 12 gauge would require 12 lead balls of the bore diameter to weigh one pound.
In general the number of pellets in a shotgun shell...
