That is indead a nice buck

That is indead a nice buck and I would guess that he would go 215-220. I have only seen a couple of deer that I would say were 40"+ and one of them was on the top of the Book Cliffs that you can see from Fruita during the Utah archery hunt. The funny thing was that the deer was standing 50' away from a trailer while the hunters were off looking for one. We saw the hunters the next day and they didn't believe us until we showed them the video.
