Sounds like the guy that shot the deer may have been pushing his luck. If I was the landowner I think I would be a little upset too but if the landowner is having him charged because he wants the antlers then that's just dirty.
I dont know how it works there but here in Montana the land owner would have no chance of getting the antlers,the F&G would sell them at an auction they have at the end of each year with all the seized trophys and gear from F&G violations.Sounds to me like they guy had permission to hunt,just not permision to shoot a new state record
Dang....no bnow, I dont have another...thats the only one I found and thats why I posted it. I'll keep trying.
My Ex-wife actually sent me the link I posted earlier as a poke and jab at me.
Mabe I'll see if she can find another one to send me.
As a Taxidermist I look at hundreds of Whitetail Bucks every year. I know that I have seen many different ways people judge the size of racks on live deer. I think for the most part they all are pretty close. I'm going to give you some measurements that I have noticed being right on in just about every deer. We have used it in the last couple years and have only been off by about 5-6 inches. We do study the deer while bowhunting so we get a little more time to look at them....
