Thanks for posting this. I would make a replica of antlers and sell original set but not for $100,000. I'd try to hold out for $1 mil.

It's all about the size & shape of the rack.

Now he has to sweat out 2 years before it is OFFICIALLY recognized by the B&C panel.

Panel judges tend to be far more conservation in their scoring than state judges. This guy better hope the state judges were conservative. If they were, the score could increase at panel time.

Thats exactly how this game is played. He will have to sell the original rack. I know one that went for 250k.

The horns are grown from heavy synthetic feeding. Deer do not exist in a natural form with that rack hince the term atypical

Wrong. Nontypical vs typical has to do with the symmetry of the rack. A typical will have 2 main, round and pointed beams with individual, round and pointed tines going vertically (brow tines, G2, G3, etc)

When you start to have branches coming off of the tines, irregular shapes to the tines, beams, or other masses that cause a significant departure from a symmetrical rack, they are called non-typical.

You should really do some research or STFU about things you know nothing about. This deer was totally free range and was well known to be on a couple of farms just off Highway 109 in Gallatin, TN. It was being hunted by several hunters, and had been seen and photographed during the summer from the highway. I'll try to attach a photograph of the deer taken in velvet.

It just so happens another non-typical buck with 53 points was killed in this same area a few years back, so the genetics are there. There was also a very large typical killed this year within a mile of where this deer was taken.

The hunter is a young guy who is a really honest and humble person. People like you shooting your mouth off with ignorant statements out of jealousy is what is wrong with deer hunting today.

What he ate is irrelevant. All that matters is that he was wild and not in a high fenced property.

It's an impressive deer but I don't believe it is natural
