You can't take 25k with ya either.


If I ever got to the point where I couldn't hunt and I was sitting there looking at the mount, somehow I think I'd feel better knowing I was looking at the real thing as opposed to a piece of plastic.

For me it would be keeping the original so I could hand it down to my son, and that is taking it with you

I'd sell the rack in a heartbeat. $25K pays a fair amount of college tuition, and to heck with the replica! If they offer me a replica, my reply would be to give me the extra cash.

I'll photograph my deer, hang that on the wall in a nice $20 frame, and keep my cost below $30.

$25000 would be a nice down payment on land for my family to enjoy for generations. Besides, they could walk into any Cabels's and brag,"that one right there....my dad shot that one"!

I would take the 25,000 and the replica. The original rack be gone but you still have the memories, the deer's likeness to hang on your wall, and 25,000.

No way!! That money wouldn't last as long as you think and then you'd have no money and a hunk of plastic.

Now for life changing money... maybe.

Exactly..... and I'd be braggin all the time about how the mount on my wall is a replica, while the original is on display at Cabela's.

those 300+ inch deer that are in every cabelas are out of this world.

those originals would sell for just a little more than 25k...more along the lines of a "life-changing" amount.

I'm with you guys...Give me the 25K, a replica and one other thing....an opportunity to tell/write my story in Outdoor Life and/or Field and Stream. That buck could launch a new career for this ol'buck!
