I posted this bucks 2013 pics on this thread and shot him in 2015. I just got him back from the taxi. Funny this thread pops back up.
I was thinking that may be you when I met you at the taxidermist last week!
Good work on the Bucks and was great meeting you!

Here's my addition. Tall and chocolate colored is my favorite looking buck. Hope to get a nice mule deer someday.

Some great bucks!  I like the tall ones more than the wide ones. 

The tallest buck I ever saw or heard of I saw on a late September backpack trip 25 years ago in Canadian back country.   A group of us watched the buck with binos for about ten minutes within 100 yards but none of us had a camera.   It was a mule deer so tall that it bugged out my eyes, and then it turned to face me.  It was so narrow in width that it looked really odd when facing me.  It was plenty wide for an average mule deer buck but with antlers so tall it made that width look skinny.  It had another extreme feature as well:  the widest spread front to back of any deer antlers I've seen or seen pictured.   I wish I could have measured the distance from the tip of the front point to the tip of the back one on either side.   When the buck was sideways it made me go, "WOW!"  When it would turn toward me my perception changed to "WEIRD!" It was sort of ugly and misshapen looking because it was so tall and narrow. 

I'm not sure what the narrow width would do to the net score but otherwise with the deep forks and long tines it was an easy Boone & Crockett gross.  I had a deer tag in my pocket and season was open but I hadn't carried a rifle in case it might offend a couple of city folks I didn't know well. :(

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.  That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

On one of my very first hunts when I was young, we saw a buck very similar to that one just outside Sheridan WY. He was leaving the canyon at first light and skylined himself. He was heavy, super tall, and his back forks nearly touched at the tips. I'll never forget it.

Here's an oldie from Wyoming, a true hermaphrodite
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.
