Excellent and you put it all together for this buck. ...... :)
I'm not all that familiar with BlackTails so don't mind me asking why his rack is so red? Are they just coming out of velvet or is this their naturall color for this time of year? Again, my compliments !!! :D

Be Safe !!!

I forgot to mention how much I love the chocolate rack! From everything I've always heard, the dark color is from a lack of sun. Love those chocolate horns! I've spent a lot of time hunting blacktails and I've never shot a 5x5, you should be very proud bthunter!

Nice deer!

I have always been told (and you know how that goes...:p) that the racks are darker if they do a lot of rubbing on evergreens - all the pitch.

Sounds both silly and possible at the same time....
