Nice buck Log in to Reply Guest January 30th, 2006 I love it when someone takes a look and instantly accuses others of doctoring the photo or responding with some other smart a** remark. This buck is very well known around Mule Deer circles. It’s the Mundy buck: It is over 49 inches wide with a net B&C score around 288 and has one of the biggest typical frames ever recorded. I believe someone else posted the actual measurements further down the list of comments.

Log in to Reply Guest November 4th, 2006 i’ve seen many photos and read many articles on this deer. It truly is magnificent. for all those folks that think this is fake I know it is real. Log in to Reply Guest December 1st, 2006 If real it is huge of course anyone who has the means can produce big bucks bulls whatever on a ranch, lets go somehwere where they are not feeding growth hormones and find one like this, otherwise huge buck, and what is the score. Log in to Reply Guest December 5th, 2006 For those of you that are curious, here’s the skinny on this magnificant buck (It IS real, was NOT fed hormones, and was not shot by the young lady in the picture). The antlers from the Mundy buck are truly the most magnificent you will ever find on a mule deer. One glance from any mule deer lover and instantly you are amazed at the combination of width, height, and mass making this the epitome of trophy mule deer. Just how big is this buck? The buck holds claim to the world record for the Burkett System for displacement of water with the antlers weighing 13 1/2 lbs. It also is the widest mule deer entered in the Boone and Crockett books coming in at 49 2/8 inches, has a net typical frame of 237 inches and 51 3/8 inches of non-typical points. Add all of this up and it gives you a final score of 288 6/8 B&C and ranking #31 all time. However, the story behind the Mundy buck is interesting in its own right. According to Bill Mundy, owner of the Mundy Ranch in New Mexico, this buck was harvested by Frank Maestas from Albuquerque in 1962. Frank was operating some heavy equipment for Bill on the ranch and doing a good job. To compensate Frank for his fine work, Bill gave Frank a free hunt on the Mundy Ranch. Not only did he give him a free hunt, but told Frank where a huge buck had been hanging out. Apparently Billís 14-year-old son, Jim, had been in sheep camp all summer on the ranch, had seen a huge buck many times and knew of his whereabouts. However, the deal was made that if Frank did harvest this huge buck, the ranch would keep the head but Frank would get credit for it in Boone and Crockett. The day of the hunt, Frank was given a map of where this buck was and how to get there. Within 2 1/2 hours Frank had spotted the buck just 200 yards from where Jim told him he would be. From here the rest is history. Frank harvested the buck and is the official hunter in the Boone and Crockett book while the head stayed at the Mundy Ranch according to the original deal. However, this past spring, Ed Maestas, one of Frankís nephews, met with the current owner of the Mundy Buck (Rainbowís End Bed and Breakfast in Challis, Idaho) and explained that the wrong uncle has his name in the record book. Frankís brother, David, should have his name in the record book instead. Frank did not shoot the buck, but was the one who took it to be scored. David was the one who sold the antlers to Mundy for $100. Score: 288 6/8 B&C Points: 12×10 Main Beams: R-30 4/8" L-31 6/8" Outside Spread: 49 2/8" Hunter: Dave Maestas (recorded as Frank Maestas) Owner: Aly Matthews Log in to Reply ← Previous Comments More Comments → Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
