I forgot to answer the buck question. I live near Placerville Ca. and though I would never say that a buck like that would not be here, I have never seen one. I got this guy in New Mexico near the Texas border. I am a deer hunting nut and have hunted most of the Western States. MikeGlad you're OK ! If you don't mind please give us more information about the load and perhaps the circumstances surrounding this so we may learn! Thank you very much for having the nuts to post this.
Is that nice buck from your area?
