I am contemplating a 3 buck pedestal for this CO buck and a couple mid 180s deer deer  that I haven't mounted.

That would be awesome. I have always wanted to do a 3 buck mount with a whitetail/mule deer and blacktail. I just need the whitetail  :bash: :chuckle:

Congrats on having the mental fortitude to do that solo and take a once in a lifetime buck for most hunters. Just goes to show that width means very little in making a giant mule deer but  I'm sure you join a small group that have a 200 inch buck with 20" of spread credit. That's an impressive buck and hunt jj! Congrats! :tup:

Great buck, great write up. Thanks for sharing, JJ. Huge congratulations!

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield
