man o man.... its ashame the guy that had all the pics and vid of that buck couldnt have gotten him. I doubt he sleeps at night wondering how he died. But I doubt he slept to begin with knowing that deer was there!

Sad to recover such a neat beast...

Wish he had performed a better shot to begin with which would of dropped the deer faster/closer. That will make a great european mount!

I find antlers a bit like "track soup". They might feed the soul, but don't do anything for the stomach. :wink:
