Yes he's a solid 190" I couldn't get pics from the front but he's pushing 32" wide first two pics are the same deer. The third have crab claws on top of every point.

Looks like a shooter to me. Those tines look long on the first two pics. I hope you can seal the deal come hunting season.

This bucks daddy was hit by a car the same year I took these pics. I've heard a few stories about what happen but don't know for sure. I do know I saw daddy but didn't have a camera and never saw him again. This year there was a nice 180" 4x5 and a couple 160" 4x4s in the same spot. Crazy thing is it's about 3 blocks from industrial building and homes.

He is very tall. A real cool typical buck.

It's pretty cool to have those kind of genetics so close to a populated area. I can sit in my back yard with a spotting scope and look for these deer. A little far away for pics but a 2 min drive and they are 1000 yards away. Two years ago there were 5 bucks in a group that just hung out most of the late summer early fall all different sizes but looked to be all related.

It's very cool to be able to glass good bucks from your lawnchair. Just north of you in Susanville the standard joke is "man.....there's as many good bucks walking down mainstreet as there are in the hills" :) You probably hear the same thing. Northern Reno area is a classic example of urban sprawl eating up winter range. Areas north of N. Virginia st. and Red Rock are a couple of examples of urban expantion into prime deer country.

Yes for sure those are great winter range areas. Funny about what they say in Susanville, I have seen a few deer when passing through. It gives me the incentive to hike the hills after a good look at the winter range and see what's really up there.

I had to change it! It was more lack of paying attention than anything!

That's funny....I graduated from Lassen High in "76", as best I can remember, reading, writing and spelling were not required to graduate.................staying on a horse long enough to pen cows WAS :D Anyway, we surely have some boottracks on some of the same mountains for sure......
