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!

Incredible, thanks for sharing bearpaw!
My interpretation of the rules are open to interpretation.

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.

Thanks for sharing those pics.
That thing is awesome.
