"We hunt a 600 acre ranch near Camp Wood, Texas. It was in the middle of December, and the rut was in full swing. We watched several eight and nine points go past, and, of course, he wanted to shoot everything, but I told him to be patient. Around 8:30AM, a doe came over the ridge in front of us, followed shortly by this buck we call the "flower child", because he had so many tines it looked like he had flowers sprouting on his head. He'd only been photographed on game cameras, we'd never actually seen him. Cameron, my son, found one of his sheds last season, and he really wanted to get him. Well he stopped at about 80 yards and Cameron leveled him with Silver State's 110 grain prohunter load. He literally dropped in his tracks. He had 16 scorable points and had gained five inches from last season on the one antler. The taxidermist aged him at 5 1/2 years old. Poor Cameron will likely never top this deer, and I hope some day that I get something close to it."
