How big is a 40" buck?
« on: August 10, 2017, 09:33:47 PM »
I thought I would share these photos. My friend Jake Sorenson in Utah who owns "Jakes Custom Taxidermy" mounted this buck for another one of his customers. It was taken in Mexico last season on a guided hunt. Enjoy!

Dang!  :drool:

I don't know what the guy paid for this hunt, but I do know you can get good sonoran hunts in the 8k to 15k range. Sometimes there are pretty good deals on cancellations if you can go on a last minute notice. I would be wary of regular priced hunts in Mexico that seem cheap, stick with reputable outfits.

Man they have some beasts running around down there.  I think they are also a smaller deer so they look even BIGGER!    Trophy of a lifetime there.  I like that its true width too, not because of some cheater point

Holy Smokes. That is incredible.

Not sure the draw of a 40 inch buck would make me want to hunt in territory controlled by Mexican Drug cartel though :dunno:
You might get a hunt for 10K and spend another 20K in ransom money to get home :yike:

I've often wondered if that spread puts them at a fighting disadvantage.  Seems a tall 22" buck would fit right inside of him and gouge his face off.   :dunno:

I in no way want to minimize the awesomeness off this buck but perhaps a fence kept that from happening? I don't see how width is an advantage to the buck. Obviously low deer density and genetics could encourage the width thingy.
