I took this non-typical buck with a 36" outside spread on our place near Augusta Mt in Nov. 2004,My uncle took his buck about 45min. later on the same ridge.I saw some bigger bucks that day but none as unique as this one!
Awesome bucks. I too have some big bucks on the wall and would love to get something big and unique.
Just curious....was this a general tag? Draw tag? Private or public land? Mule deer seem to be on the decline, especially the big bucks. Would love to hear of people getting these class of deer on public land with a general tag but you just don't see it anymore.
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....
