Thanks guys. I wasn't expecting this guy at all. I had found a real nice 4x4 in the same area and found him instead.

Beetleguy did you get that buck on public or private ground?

That one was taken on a small private piece. The last few years have not had any money or time to do any back country hunting. So I took what I could get ;)

There is nothing wrong with private ground. I killed my last years bow buck on private as well.

Is 179 an official score, or what you came up with?

Is it relatively easy to tell if they are a cross? Do they have characteristics of both species? Of course the antlers are huge, was just curious.

This is considered a California mule deer. Body size tend to be smaller then their RM brothers. You can find all the info off the DFG website.

Great looking buck! Did you treat the velvet yourself? If so what method did you use. I'm fond of formaldehyde, but not everyone can get that.

That wasn't treated. I ended up pealing all the velvet off... Linseed oil works well for velvet.

I use Velvet in Tan from VanDykes. Poke the tips, then inject into the veins until all the blood is pushed out the tips. Then I put some in a spray bottle and hit the entire rack until its pretty moist. Hang upside down for 2 days before rinsing off with cold water. Works great for me...

I'm losing that property to hunt:~( Friend and his family are moving and that was the last N C property I had to hunt. Actually, there is some public land I need to scout.

I know the feeling. I have lost alot of property over the years to no falt of my own. (People moving, property getting sold and old timers passing.) It sucks!!! I have been doing pretty well the last few years on public ground but I'm still searching for that honey hole. Good luck this season!
