    Very nice bucks, thanks for sharing HuntWYODon.

    I went out scouting today and saw four legal bucks. I was able to take photos of two, the other two were too far and my camera would not focus on them. I'm going to look into getting an adapter for my spotter. Here are the bucks....

    That's cool bigshot, that one is a pretty big forky. Seeing your pics makes me want to go back up there to scout!

    Yeah he probably will ! Looks to be at least 20 in. already. I saw a huge forky in Az. unit 21 that I used to archery bow hunt for javalina and deer all the time in Jan.. I hunted this same buck on three 3 day trips in a row. From my house to where he was was almost 400 mi.. He had a rack like a longhorn steer and was 34 to 36 in wide. I even had 2 taxidermist friend's give me the same spread. I won't get into the stories about the stalks on him but never got him. I actually got two stalks on him the last trip. I have pictures of him with does and two weeks later he was done with them and by himself and limping. Maybe from a fight. I wished I had a Nov. rifle tag instead.I have another picture of a giant forky laying down in Yosemite Park that is at least 28 in. If I come across the pics I'll take a pic with phone and post them. Forkie's for life !

    I have a 24"w x 22"h forkie on my wall! An absolutely beautiful mount! A biologist with F & G validated the tag and told me it was a pretty old deer. He said a lot of times when they get just past their "prime", their antlers will revert back instead of gain points. He called it a "Pacific Buck". Regardless, it was a great buck, shot it in 1969 in D7. Big body, weighted 179# field dressed. There were 3 bucks moving together in some pretty thick manzanita brush and all I could see was horns, all were nice shooter bucks (at leasy for me). I held on a small opening about 100 yards away and slightly downhill and when the first one moved thru it, I popped him. My hunting buddy worked down to where the buck was and I started down to start gutting him. I asked how big he was and he said "Just a Forkie". I yelled no way, when I got to the deer he had the biggest grin on his face and just about fell over laughing.

    I'll get a picture and post it. I think it might be already on my Profile. It's the last one, only one with 2 images. Bottom pict.

    Hey CC, just saw the pictures in your profile, "Man," you have taken some nice cali bucks!! The one tied to the horse, looks to be around 30 inches wide.

    That's pretty awesome for D7 ! Won't find taht any more !
    Hey CC, did you see the thread about anybody hunted X10 ? I posted and mentioned you might know more than me.
    Maybe you bigshot or Muleys 24/7 may have also. Been a long time since I did and didn't have much info for him. It's in the "mule deer" section.
