I was so excited when I first saw this buck. He is a typical 8 pointer with 11 - 12 inch G-2s. He scored 162 and dressed at 190 pounds. I have seen bucks with more points, but few deer gotten me more fired up than this big fellow.
This young buck scored over 186. He is hanging on our wall at the lodge. I had a shot at him two weeks before 2006-07 season was over, but didn't take him. I thought he was too young.

Two weeks after the seaon was over we found him dead having been killed by a big cat!
