Are you around San Marcos? Highest concentration of Melanistic deer in the country. Still bucks are rare and would make a great mount. If you have a big enough place try to give him another year or two. If not still a cool trophy. Can't tell from the 2nd pic but if the deer on the right is a 6 or 7, what a great cull.
I'm between New Braunfels and San Antonio. Everyone here has 2 to 4 acres, so no hunting. A couple of larger tracks nearby and I think
thats where they stay most of the time.
