Got my 2008 rifle buck back today. Shot it the opening day last year. I measured it and entered in the lengths online on the boone and crockett website. it said it scored 126 3/8 on the typical scoring system, but it had 11 1/8 in deductions.
no i didn't take it the wrong way. i liked it. my brother-in-law already busted my chops tonight about hanging it on a pink wall with next to girly curtains. i just had to remind him that my 9 made his 8 look like a button buck. he didn't have a comback for that one.
my room of death is full. only because 2 of the 4 walls are made out of windows, not because i have alot of trophies. i do feel bad for the deer though. i shot him, then put him on a pink wall with girly curtains. oh well, he'll get the room he deserves soon enough. the farthest circumference from the base i measured was 3 3/4 inches. it was 5 inches at the base. harris taxidermy in danville mounted it for me. it took a year to get back, but i think it was worth the wait.
