Holy crapoli! That's not a buck; it's a hippopotamus with horns!

I'm sure a lot of us hunters would give away certain body parts for a deer like that.

Whats up with those ears?

Trophy of a lifetime for most everyone I know. Congrats! Need a hunting partner? I could hang stands for ya. Fix fence, brush hog, cook dinner, clear brush, but I aint doin any funny stuff. You will have to ask FF for that. He would probably pimp himself out to hunt there.
