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.

Archery hunts started on the 10th; not to mention the multiple "governors" type tags in NV.

What's the stigma against shooting bucks in velvet?

Personal preference.  That's it.

Don't know about any stigma, but I greatly prefer bucks out of velvet.  Just like I prefer ripe tomatoes over green ones.

It's a monster.  Sure wish it was hard horned though

Having never harvested a velvet buck can you preserve the velvet? How much do you think he paid for that buck?
My dad has an archery blacktail he shot in California in 1999 that was in velvet and still has its velvet.

Some prefer fuzz some don't.
Makes an already huge buck look even bigger that's for sure.

That buck will be stripped of his velvet then the taxidermist will put velvet back on.

Why? Seems like a lot of work

Because to get it officially scored for Boone and Crockett they have to be hard horned.
