Yeah, it would have been nice for him to pass on that buck because he would have only gotten better with another year to grow. It looks like he started breaking another point on his left beam, man if he could have made it two more years, he would have been a monster buck. Anyway, congrats to your friend!
By the way, next time have your friend kept his shirt on. It ruins the picture with him being shirtless. LOL. Congrats, though.
