    Very unique Buck. I try to harvest a nice four by four or five by five typical every year (over 130) but that buck would definitely had my crosshairs on it had I gotten the chance. Congratulations on a nice buck,the body looks very large,I am thinking that being that age it may not have been as great to eat,am I right? Again thanks for sharing a great buck story.:D catfish

    Thats a great looking buck,it is to bad you did not get to bring the meat home did Canada's games laws make it to big a hassle to get home with it.

    That would ruin it for me. We meat hunt first and the trophy is an added bonus. I want my backstraps or I would stay in Canada until I had eaten my deer!:D

    Very impresive trophy! But what I want to know is how much does the kitty in your avatar weigh? I have one that goes well over 30 but I havent weighed him in a long time.

    Always wanted an encore, Very rare thing here in Aus. I've only ever seen one.
    I have great respect for anyone who hunts with a single shot rifle. Well done:):)
