Having never harvested a velvet buck can you preserve the velvet? How much do you think he paid for that buck?

Holy moly! What a beast, gotta agree with Bone, that buck hard horned would be a phenomenal sight! I love a velvet Typical though!

Congrats to the lucky hunter!

Wow, if you didn't know different it looks like a fence hunt.

I'm always amazed at how well they get them cleaned up and posed.  I'm usually anxious to get the show on the road and end up working it over for 30 second with a blue shop towel, dragging it so the camera isn't pointing directly in the sun and firing off a few lame photos.

I guess if I had a guide and $$$ invested I would take a few minutes to do it right.

If he could keep the velvet on , I think it would be an awesome mount.
What am I saying, it is awesome, LOL

Great buck, what a trophy.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

My first buck shot in 1999 was in full velvet in October.  He had no balls and didn't ever rub.  He still has all the velvet today. It should be easy to preserve

Why, if he had the governor tag, didn't he keep his posse on that thing till it was hard horned?  It would be tough to pass for us normal hunters, but I don't think he just stumbled upon that opening day.
