UNREAL!!! That's so awesome man! Kudos to you for giving your son first dibs at a buck that huge, haha. I'd like to say I would do the same, but man, I just don't know, haha. I'm still ecstatic over my little 3 point, lol, I can't even imagine taking a buck that HUGE! That's so awesome that both of you got great bucks, well done, that kid has got to be hooked now!

Those are two awesome bucks! And they are made even more awesome by being taken by a father and son team.

Wow, great bucks! Congrats. How does your buck compare to the one you shot last year. He has to be fairly close.

This deer beat the one from the year before in gross. It has an official gross score of 200 and a net typical of 178 and net non-typical of over 190. My sons ended up with a gross 187 and net typical 172.

I was glad to find that I didn't ruin my son for good. This year after passing on a nice 3 point the first morning of the muzzleloader hunt, I reminded him that it isn't wise to pass on a deer the first day that he would gladly take on the last day. So when we saw a similar buck that evening, he didn't hesitate. He made a great kill shot from 100yds. I think the smile on his face was just as big if not bigger this year.

Not completely done with the finishing touches on the pedestal but I was able to finally get the mounts up. Grateful for a taxidermist who understood my vision. Couldn't be happier. Now I just have to deal with a daughter who is expecting similar results this year on her first hunt.
